What was your welcome-to-the-NBA moment? "My rookie season against Atlanta I got a rebound and went up and dunked on Chris Crawford. I remember I ran down the court screaming and thinking, I can be a presence here."

What was your most embarrassing moment? "My shorts were too big, and when I would go up for a rebound, they'd fall down. I didn't really feel it because I was in the flow of the game. But I had to hear about it from the G.M. [ John Paxson] and the newspapers and everything."

Your favorite off-day activity? "Playing Texas Hold 'em. That's all I do now. I have the World Series of Poker computer game and everything. I play against the computer. I play with friends. I taught my girl. Everyone in my house has to know how to play."

If I were commissioner for a day, I would ... give everyone bonuses.
