I love New Orleans.
I don’t care what anybody says, there’s nothing like the cultural influence of hip-hop. For me, hip-hop culture is involved in everything – it’s in me, in who I am, in how I dress, how I talk. It’s in my son and my wife.
Being from North Carolina, it’s kind of slow-paced. There’s not too much going on there, whereas in New Orleans, there’s always something going on. I just love all the people, going out to dinner and enjoying anything I want.
I realize that I’m not going to be doing interviews for the cover of ‘GQ’ for the rest of my life, know what I mean? I’m on TV because I play basketball really well.
I trust my wife more than I trust myself.
Most of the time, if you ask a kid who’s their best friend, it’s usually a classmate or their neighbor or something, but for me, it was my granddad. Everybody knew him – they called him Mr. Jones.
I love Polo. I have a lot of Ralph Lauren suits. I got Dolce, I got a little bit of everything. And my favorite thing about Ralph Lauren is that he puts the number three on a lot of his clothes, so I feel like it’s meant for me.
I have a Dominique Wilkins Hawks jersey that I still wear. That’s probably my favorite one. What’s funny is that I spend all this time collecting jerseys, and now people are out there collecting mine.
You don’t always have to be a leader and be as vocal as I am. I’m sure some people would love it if I didn’t talk as much as I did.
I love people. I hate to be by myself.
From day one, since I was traded to the Clippers, the team has been amazing to not only me, but to my family.
I’ve been fortunate to be short my entire life. There’s only one position I’ve ever had to play, and that’s point guard. So I’ve always had to be that leader. And that was my job: you know, to talk.
I grew up on games like Madden and NBA Jam, then moved on to NFL 2K on Dreamcast. The game I really loved was Virtua Tennis.
Family was real important in putting me on my path. I’m so blessed to come from a home with a mother and a father.
I try to penetrate the lane like Steve Nash, pass like Jason Kidd, and handle the ball like Allen Iverson. Remember, I said ‘try to’.
