What is your favorite Bucks jersey?

My favorite jersey are the black ones. They are pretty sick. I can't wait to see what they do in the future.

Which player on the team do you feel you relate to the most? Why?

I feel that I relate to Giannis the most. I feel like we have a similar humor and we would get along pretty well. He is also very family oriented which I like.

What All Star weekend event would you want to participate in? Why?

I would have to be in the Dunk Contest. It is the most exciting and creative event they have during the weekend. I might be small, but I've been practicing some major dunks

What is something people don't know about you?

Lately I've been brushing my teeth with warm water. Try it. It's weird, yet refreshing.

How many thunder sticks have you blown up in your Hoop Troop career?

I would not be surprised if it is close to 10,000.

Which Bucks player would you challenge to an arm wrestling competition?

I would want to arm wrestle Greg Monroe. I have done some competitions in the past and always start with the biggest guy to prove my doubters.

What's your hidden talent?

I'm really good at staring contests.

If your life had a theme song, what would it be?

Can't Tell Me Nothing -Kanye West.

Most memorable Hoop Troop experience:

I have always loved being apart of all the Hoop Troop community events because of the positive influence we have on people that truly make fans days. Going to the Children's Hospital this year has been one of my favorite experiences because the whole team and coaches came to spend some time with the kids. It's just amazing seeing what the players, coaches, and game entertainment can do for fans and Milwaukee.
