Price: The most
popular sports are Australian rules football and cricket. Basketball would
probably follow. More young kids play basketball over there than any sport,
particularly with guys like Andrew Bogut making a splash in the States.
SI: You hold the
NBA's career free throw mark (90.4%). It must kill you to see players brick
frustrating to watch guys miss free throws so often. My dad was a coach, and
that was one of his pet peeves. And I didn't want my dad to yell at me.
SI: Have you seen
an Aussie rules football game?
Price: I was
watching a lot of it when I was over there. But they call it footy. You gotta
get your lingo right.
