You’ve had an opportunity to work with JJ Redick a lot. How have you learned from him and the coaching staff?
"JJ’s been great. The coaches are great with giving me feedback. I just got done watching film with [assistant coach] Monty Williams, and working out with him. JJ, he’s good with talking to me. We work out after practice every day. It’s been a lot of information to obtain and get in my head in a short period of time, but I think it’s all put me in a good place so far. It’s a matter of continuing to learn, because I still have so much more to learn, and trying to continue to make strides."
You seem to have a good sense of confidence about yourself - even though, as you’ve said, you have a long ways to go, you look like you belong out there.
"I think since, even in college, I remember my freshman year, the year I broke my foot and was out, we had a couple injuries and I started my first college basketball game ever on a team that was top 10, and I wasn’t expected to start. As a freshman coming in, not knowing anything about the whole college basketball landscape, starting my frist game, I got similar kind of things said about me. I think I just try to carry myself even-keeled. Just stay even-keeled as much as I can through highs and lows, which Lord knows, I go through them both. That’s kind of how I try to approach things."
Your social media game is pretty good.
"I will say I’ve been slacking on Twitter, so if anybody’s listening and has been desiring a couple more Landry Shamet tweets, I apologize. I’ve been kind of off Twitter for a while. I just try to be me, be unique, and just people are following me because I’m a basketball player, and keep them focused on my basketball life, and maybe a couple other personal things here and there."
