DeAndre Jordan has drawn praise from both Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim during his tenure with Team USA. NBA.com
The Scoop: "As good as I thought he was on TV and on tape, he's better," Coach K said. "He's really one of the great players in the league right now, and an amazing teammate. He does dirty work willingly, but he does it at the highest level. I think he's a special player." Separately (and previously), Boeheim had this to say about DJ: "He's about the hardest working big guy I've seen?He just goes after everything. He's always engaged, he's moving, there's no down time, he's not taking a play off and he plays hard." It's worth keeping in mind that Jordan played a significant chunk of his regular season last year without Blake Griffin, so that's something to factor in when deciding where Jordan will come off the board on fantasy draft day.
