especially when they're grilling you.
The interviews at the combine
we had with teams would get interesting, because if a team was really interested they had true facts on you. They would do background checks and ask certain people different questions. I know they asked my assistant high school coach Andy Fisher questions, they might even go back all the way to ask your second grade teacher or kindergarten principal about you. It is understandable, though, because they are investing a lot of money into you.
There were people outside our hotel in Chicago
asking for autographs and wanting to buy our jerseys and shoes from anywhere to $200-$500. It was cool, though.
The draft process
is just BUSY. It's been crazy but fun.
When people continue to bring up my three-point, three-rebound average at Kentucky,
I just smile and say I understand. I know that I'm making the right decision, though.
I'm working to improve
my shooting and a lot of little things in the post, basically technique.
Working out in San Francisco has
helped me. It's gotten me in better shape and has made me tougher mentally.
I'd love to play for
the Thunder. I know I could help them out a lot and could really see myself playing well with them.
