Outside of basketball, I enjoy listening to music and hanging out with my friends. I like to watch movies (DVDs or Netflix), shop and try out new restaurants.

Who are your biggest Role Models?

My two biggest role models would have to be my mother and my oldest brother, Darren.

I‘m a huge Knicks fan, no matter if we’re having a winning or losing season. I am also a fan of the Los Angeles Clippers and Chicago Bulls.

No, I don’t have any superstitions.

What’s your Favorite Sports Memory?

When I was in high school in a playoff game, I scored 23 points and hit the game winning 3-pointer. It was a great feeling, and I was so glad to help my team win the game.
