Jermaine O’Neal Interview

Whats your hometown?      Columbia, SC

Who was your favorite NBA player growing up?      I really didn’t have one, but if I had to remember one now it would probably be Isiah Thomas.

You know him well?            Well, he used to be the coach.  He used to coach the Pacers so I know him very very well.


Who’s your favorite NFL player to watch?        I’m gonna go with Ray Lewis?

You ever hung out with him?        No, I haven’t yet.

What’s your favorite T.V. show?        Martin.

What’s the best perk of being in the league?        The opportunity to meet alot of different people.  You get to travel alot.

What do you do in your spare time?        I like to hang out with my 2 kids, my boy and my girl.       

Who’s your toughest matchup?        I can give you 4 guys that are always tough: Rasheed Wallace, Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan.

Do you gamble at all?  You player poker?    I don’t gamble alot, but I will play the occasional card game.  No poker, even though I have a charity poker event in Vegas every summer.

Yeah you do, I’ll be in that this year!        OKAY!

Who are you closest to on your team?        I’m pretty close to alot of the guys but I think Al Harrington has to be the closest one.

What about on another team?        Rasheed Wallace, Detroit Pistons.

If you weren’t an NBA player what would you be doing today?        I think I’d be playin’ in the NFL.
