07:22 AM ET 09.17 | The more of Suns point guard Goran Dragic he sees, the more Chris Thomas appreciates the view. Thomas has spent the past 70 days with Dragic, who has led his Slovenian national team to the quarterfinals of the European Championship in his hometown Ljubljana. As a first-year assistant coach for Slovenia, Thomas has seen the Dragic that a young Suns team will need this season. "I didn't realize what a tremendous leader he is, by his words and example," Thomas said. "I marvel at how our guys look up to him on a daily basis. It's impressed me beyond what I can express." ... [On Wednesday against France,] the green-clad faithful at Stozice Arena will be chanting, "Go-gi, Go-gi, Go-gi," for Dragic. "It's the loudest 10,000 people I've ever heard in my life," Thomas said. "Goran is absolutely a rock star."
