QUOTE: “Ronnie always gives you a pointer every day. He has a lot to offer. He’s a great veteran. I am always learning from him. I have such a high respect for him and how long he’s been here. It’s hard not to listen to him.”

COHEN’S ANALYSIS: Aside from adding some depth to the Magic’s backcourt, Ronnie Price is a superlative mentor to his young, blossoming teammates. It was one of the reasons Rob Hennigan sought him out in free agency this past summer. Price’s journey – a contrast to most players in the NBA – has required him to prove his value every step of the way. And his commitment to teamwork and locker room leadership is verified by the fact that he has been in the league eight years.
