1. All Street Ball Franchise (5) players: Skip, Headache, Alimoe, myself, and the Franchise

2. Many say that true street ballers only come from NYC. How does being from NYC influence the way you play? It makes me a different type of player. It forces me to put the ball on the ground and get things done without having my back to the basket.

3. What are your views on the current state of street ball? I love it, because I feel it is just beginning to roll. This only the start of better things to come, and I feel myself and the rest of the AND 1 Mix Tape team are a huge part of that.

4. Do you have any superstitions or pre-game rituals? I just pray and give thanks to God. I ask God for the health of me and my teammates throughout the game.

5. What do you want to be remembered for? I just want to be remembered.
