Position: Shooting Guard/ Point Guard
What makes Basketball the best sport in the world?
It’s the competing, the competition – my love for the game. There’s no greater sport.
Have you ever been to the UK before?
No, it’s my first time! I’m really enjoying it. It’s a great experience. I’m definitely coming back!
Any advice for young ballers in the UK who dream of a career in the NBA?
You’ve got to keep believing in yourself, never give up. Anything is possible in life – keep pursuing your dream.
What do you eat to keep you ready to go all in?
I eat a lot of chicken and sea food, and no red meat. I also have a lot of fruits and vegetables. I drink a lot of water!
Recommend a follow for @adidasUK?
One of my teammates, Brandon (Knight) or Andre (Drummond)!
What’s the best thing about playing in London?
It’s great for our British fans to see a pro game, to experience the NBA. The NBA expanding is a good thing, it blows me away to meet new fans.
London or Detroit?
How do you get in the mood to go all in?
My love for the game helps me. I have the feeling inside, my inner-self, it helps me get going. Music helps too, I like hip-hop.
What’s your all in song?
That’s a good question! There’s so much music out there – it’s really tough. I’d have to say something by Jay-Z, but not sure what song. That’s got me thinking!
What makes you an adidas guy?
I’ve always worn adidas! Ever since I was in my college days. The product is great, the shoes are comfortable. I’m an adidas man!
If you’re invisible for the day, what would you do?
Sleep! I’d catch up on sleep and watch TV so no-one could disturb me.
What can basketball players do better than any other sports star?
We can jump high! And play ball!
If you were a Superhero, who would you be and why?
Definitely Superman, help save the world, protect people. And fly!
If you’re cooking for the Queen – what’s your dish?
Man! First I’d like to know what she likes, but if I didn’t know, some Lobster with a nice salad, and then some dessert. Do you guys like Cheesecake over here? I’d make her a good dessert!
Who would you get to play you in a movie?
What’s your signature dance move?
I can do a lot! I’m a versatile dancer, I can do the dougie, anything you like!
