Rule: He'd be better than the owner we got now. Puff would be good because he loves New York.
SI: When you're hanging with Puff or Jay-Z, do you guys ever talk sports, or is it simply chicks and cash?
Rule: It depends what the topic is. Right now we're probably all sitting around talking about Kobe.
SI: So where do you guys stand?
Rule: Kobe's innocent. Kobe's another good friend. And quote me on this: Leave Kobe the f—- alone.
SI: Is there more trash-talking in rap or in the NBA?
Rule: I think it's a tie.
SI: What's the most impressive thing you've ever seen an athlete do?
Rule: When I was younger, I went to a Knicks game, and Michael Jordan threw Patrick Ewing's s—- into like the fifth row. It's a famous clip.
SI: In 2001 you rapped for Jennifer Lopez on her songs I'm Real and Ain't It Funny. How good an athlete do you think J. Lo is?
