What's your favorite possible uniform combination?

If you weren't pursuing an NBA career, what would be your ideal job?

"I would own my own network or be in fashion."

Why do you wear jersey number zero?

"I wear jersey number zero because that's the jersey I had back when I went to high school in Goodyear. Just coming back to Arizona after community college, I just wanted to come back to the old swag."

Who is your favorite NBA forward?

"I would say Lebron James and I like Rudy Gay."

Where does last year's game winning shot against North Dakota state rank in your basketball career?

"You know what, that would have to be in my top five. I wouldn't say it's my number one, I've had some better moments."

What are some of your hobbies off the court?

"I like to listen to music, dance, play a little games every now and then."

What kind of music do you listen to?

"All kinds of music. Country, sometimes techno, mostly hip-hop, R&B and rap."

What's your ideal vacation spot and why?

"Somewhere far, far away from Arizona. Nah, I would say a beach."

Growing up, who was your role model and why?

"Growing up my role models were both of my brothers, because they are older than me and kind of taught me the way."

Who do you think is the prettiest girl in the world?

"I would say I like Halle Berry, Kate Upton, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba. There's a lot."

When was your first kiss?

"I was like a sophomore in high school when I had my first kiss."

What professional sport teams do you root for?

"I'm not too big of a fan of football or anything. Basketball, I'm not a big of the teams, just the players."

It was rivalry weekend for football, therefore explain what's like to go against cross-state rival University of Arizona?

"It's definitely really intense, it goes back to before I was even born. It's a rivalry between ASU and U of A, it's like blood. It's like a war, like World War III. It's that bad man. We always try and go out there with passion and fork 'em."

Lastly, what was the main reason you decided to attend ASU?

"Main reason was just so I could come close to home and Coach Sendek is a wonderful coach. And to just be around a good group of guys."
