What was your welcome-to-the-NBA moment?
Getting clothes from my teammates. When I first came to the NBA [after playing in Italy], I didn't know you have to dress properly. I was a teammate of Steve Francis in Houston. He bought me a whole wardrobe.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I fell down getting crossed over by [ Orlando's] Grant Hill my first year [2002--03].

Your favorite off-day activity?
Watching TV—especially the HBO series Deadwood, The Sopranos and Rome.

What's one thing about being in the NBA that people don't think about?
That it's 24/7. You live it all the time. Whether it's getting rest, taking care of your body, getting taped up, watching film, getting ready for games or practices.

If I weren't playing basketball, I'd be ...
a reporter, digging for the truth, investigating—whether connected with history or politics or whatever.
