"I think it just comes with kind of realizing who I am," Zach Edey said to The Athletic. "I'm never going to be the wiry seven-foot guy who can like Kevin Durant, that is never going to be me, guys like that. I'm a 7-foot-4, 300-pound guy. I'm built to be in the paint, to carve out space to protect my area. And that's what I'm gonna keep doing. I think there's a lot of people in the NBA that do stuff like that. [Jonas] Valančiūnas, [Ivica] Zubac, Steven Adams; guys who had a lot of success in the NBA being those paint presences. I'm going to stick to who I am and I kind of know who I am."
