From Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich:

He’s a grown up. He’s a professional who really takes pride in what he does every day, (every) practice.

He came in and tried to learn the system quickly and asked a lot of questions. Even though he’s been in the league awhile, he was like new born in a sense. 

That professionalism engenders leadership and it engenders respect from other players. That was established very quickly. That’s one of the first things I noticed about him.
