    He has to know he's on national TV and the commentators are talking about only him, and yet he plays spectacularly, making a bunch of stylish moves that also clearly benefit his team; there's style, but it isn't empty flash, it's still for the benefit of the team. It's his first big time limelight moment and he didn't let anybody down. He never did.
