In his third NBA season, Tobias Harris has his goals set. The former Vol said he believes he can make the All-Star team and really bring a lift to the Orlando Magic.
"Going into the season, being an All-Star is one of my top individual goals," Harris said. "I think I have the ability, and the team and the coaching staff have embraced me as a player. I think it's important to go into the season with those types of goals, but at the same time, to push myself as a player and push our team to be the best team that we can be."
The Magic forward starts his first full season in Orlando after being traded mid-season from the Milwaukee Bucks. When asked what his potential is, Harris answered 'An All-Star'.
"I can be an All-Star in this league and then just go from there. I have the ability. I'm in the right situation with the right teammates and the right coaches. I have a lot of confidence in my game. I've put a lot of hours in the gym this summer and I'm ready so I'm just ready for this season to start."
