Los Angeles Lakers point guard Quinn Cook answered fan questions on Twitter. He was asked how playing with LeBron James has impacted his knowledge of the game.

Cook, who turned 26 today, replied that playing with LeBron has helped his knowledge of the game tremendously on and off the floor.

“I was his rook when I was in Cleveland my rookie year and he took me under his wing. He’s been my big brother ever since. Just to see how hard he prepares on and off the floor on everyday basis… You can do nothing but learn from a guy like that. To have one of my idols be a big brother is a dream come true. He’s the best teammate you could ask for,” Cook said.

This season the Lakers point guard is averaging 4.8 points and 1.1 assists per game.
