Other than basketball, what is your favorite hobby? Listening to music and spending time with family and friends.
If you could go one-on-one with anyone, who would it be? Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers because he is my favorite point guard. He is one of the best and I want to go against only the best of the best.
If you had to compare your game to a current college or pro player, who would it be? I would compare my game to Chris Paul because I think we have the same versatility. He has great skills and works extremely hard and is very competitive. I see myself in all aspects of his game.
Who is your role model? My grandmother. She is a VERY hard worker and an independent woman who has taught me to believe in myself and for what is right. She is selfless, caring and always puts others before herself. Her dedication and faith make her one of the most amazing women I know.
What is the most important thing basketball fans should know about you? On the court, I never give up. I finish strong regardless of the situation. Off the court, I am a totally different person. I'm very comical, fun to be around and shy at times.
What is your favorite basketball moment so far? My greatest basketball moment was on Jan. 17, 2013, when I scored my 1,000th point as a junior.
The King and I: LeBron James wishes he could ... break ankles as well as I can.
