I don't think it's a question of motivation and wanting to be better. I think he's saying it's unfair to compare him to the #1 pick in the draft that eventually became the ROY. Irving has so many more tools, hence his draft spot. Of course he's going to have more success.
I'd love to see a veteran coach show Knight the ropes.
