DP: How about Oliver Miller?
AI: [Laughs] That is terrible. I wouldn't compare [Donovan] to him either. Come on, I can't kill Donovan. I love Donovan.
DP: How close were you to saying, "I'm done with the NBA"?
AI: I was there. It didn't have so much to do with me. It was my wife and kids not knowing where we were going to be living, not knowing where they were going to be going to school. Once I decided to retire, I actually felt good. I was working on trying to get fat, I was able to be around my wife and kids anytime I wanted to, I was a 24/7 dad....
DP: Wait a minute. You were trying to get fat?
AI: Yeah. Usually I'm active and trying to stay in shape and have my body right. At that point I was just lying around.
DP: What did you eat on the first day of retirement?
AI: Fried chicken, lasagna. Everything that was unhealthy. A lot of snacks.
DP: Do you get tired of jokes about your "Practice?" rant?
AI: The only problem I have with it is that I never want kids to feel like there's no need for practice. I enjoy it when people make fun of me about it, I just don't want kids to take it the wrong way.
