"Coach (Tom) Crean told me my leadership ability is the biggest part of my game, how I could bring that to the (Indiana) team," said Nairn. "We talked about how I could help them there and how also they could help me get better with my weaknesses and glue up my game."

He's a great point guard, he defends, and he has a great basketball IQ. When he gets his jump shot down, it is going to be scary how good he can be."
