Author of 24 points and 9 rebounds yesterday, Stanley Johnson made a very strong impression to the Orlando Magic summer league. The Pistons rookie fresh out of the faculty of Arizona doesn’t lack self confidence that’s for sure.

Already, during the draft, he had declared that he was ‘the best player’ of the flock. Now, in summer league, he says he’s moving forward playing quietly, without complicating things and without forcing them.

“I play without the slightest pressure here. I don’t want to play my best match, nor my worst. I simply try to be myself. Coach Van Gundy told me: you do not need to mark the slightest basket. These are his words. All that I have to do, is play defense and play hard. I think that I should dominate every match, to be honest, but I don’t want to.
