The rookie magician says he’s learning a lot

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Orlando Magic rookie and No. 1 overall draft pick Paolo Banchero is journaling with The Associated Press this season to chronicle his first year in the NBA. This is his second installment, his first since the regular season began. The Magic are an NBA-worst 5-20 through the first 25 games of his rookie campaign. He is averaging 21.7 points and 6.8 rebounds.)

I’m learning.

The first few weeks of my first NBA season, I would say it’s been a lot of learning, a lot of learning on the floor, off the floor, habits, learning what works, what routine works for me, things like that. And then you just learn what this league is like, how you have to wear it every night. You have to learn to win. They won’t just hand it to you.

I think I learned it. We’ve all learned and are doing it the hard way, including me, just being a freshman coming from Duke, coming from always winning my whole life. It’s a little different now. I have to learn to prepare the same way, still have the same love and joy for the game, and focus on how we can get wins and be competitive.
