  • Symbol question.svg New enough, long enough, no issues with article. I'd go with your main hook so non-basketball people dont need to know about triple-double. However, your direct quote is from the sources text, which is not directly attributed to Bilas. Either remove the quotes, or use an actual direct quote from Bilas. I would also recommend to link point guard or just remove "point guard" altogether.—Bagumba (talk) 00:22, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol question.svg WP:LINKSTYLE generally prefers not to have items in quotes linked. Perhaps you can quote "among the best" only, leaving the PG link outside, and replace "country" with "college basketball"?—Bagumba (talk) 19:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Cooper is "among the best" point guards in college basketball according to analyst Jay Bilas?" Jrcla2 (talk) 22:37, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
