Kris Dunn was asked about going up against Stephen Curry, Chris Paul, and the other great point guards in the West. He said, "There's so many great point guards in this league that you have to be excited for all of them, and you've got to bring your 'A' game each and every game because there's so many great guards. I'm going to try to attack them, see where my game is at because, you know, the only way you learn how good you are is by going against them as hard as you can and see what you need to improve on in the future."
