Amile says some really insightful things here about a team still figuring out who it's going to be on the court, but he also offers unequivocal praise about the attitude and hustle of this year's seven(!) freshmen. Really nice little segment.

Wow--Amile is terrific here--mature, well-spoken, very likable. I'm looking forward to seeing what he will do on the court and as the "senior" (because second-year) captain.

Amile was very well spoken there and gave some thoughtful answers. Glad to see him get an ESPN interview like that. It's going to be fun watching what he can do in his senior year.

Yeah, it's cool to see how much Amile has grown up while at Duke. I interviewed him at the end of his freshman season in 2013, after the Creighton game in the NCAA tournament, and while he was articulate and well-spoken even then, his interview skills and maturity appear to have grown by leaps and bounds. What a great kid.
