More quotes from the article.

Karl: “The downside to playing young guys is it usually leads to mistakes. This rookie doesn’t make mistakes.”

Chauncey Billups: “A lot of rookies when they make good plays, you didn’t even have to see the play. You know what happened because they’re just so emotional and they’re running back and they’re so happy. (Lawson’s) got a great composure. He stays even-keeled the whole time, which I love. It’s something that reminds me of myself. I love playing with Ty. He’s earned his spot with us.”
