What are your future plans?
I just want to find something in my field. It's hard, with the economy, to find anything. I plan to play basketball whenever I can.
Play any other sports?
I play recreational sports like football and baseball.
Do you ever feel like quitting?
Who's your favourite athlete?
Paul Pierce (Celtics)
Who's your number one fan?
My older sister.
What's the worst thing about basketball?
Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard you work, sometimes its not enough.
How long have you been playing?
How did you start?
(Michael) Jordan. He's somebody everyone looked up to. Me and my brother followed in his footsteps.
What's your schedule like?
It's tough. I'm also working at “The Shack.” My day starts with class from 8am-4pm, then practice from 5pm-7pm, then work from 8-4.
Haven't had any playing basketball.
Favourite thing about basketball?
Just knowing that everyone on your team has your back.
How do you handle losing?
I can't handle it. You feel like you regret doing things on the floor. You just always practice harder the next day.
As a rookie, winning the championship our first year and being undefeated.
Do you have a special diet?
Sometimes. Kind of off and on. I eat a lot of protein. I try to workout after practice.
