DeAndre Ayton opened up about the mentality of the Phoenix Suns ahead of the 2020/21 season in the NBA.

The big man of the Phoenix Suns said he and his teammates have to build a winning culture.

“If you’re not all in completely, you will be pointed out. Guys work on their game every day. We work hard, and we’re great guys off the court as well.

We’re young and from different areas in the world, but for us to just compete and become one, it’s something that was really new from my career playing basketball,” Ayton said in an appearance in the Suns’ Breakthough Live Stream series, via Brendon Kleen of Bright Side of the Sun.

Ayton and the Suns want to emerge as contenders next season in the ultra competitive Western Conference.
