Omarra Merydian (@HeyItsOmarrrr) What is your favorite pump up song before a game?
“’Hit Em Up’ by 2Pac”
Kyle M. (@KCMurph4816s): What is the best game you have ever played (in your opinion)?
“Probably my first game as a rookie just because that was the start of my NBA career.”
Chris Duong (@cypheristikal): Hey DJ, in assessing your own game, how far away are you from being the "superstar post presence" on a championship team that Doc [Rivers] envisioned for you?
“I still have a lot more work to do but I feel like I’m on the right track but it’s definitely a process.”
Effy Singleton: I love that your free throws are getting better! Does that mean that you will soon be making jump shots? Also, who is your best friend on the team since you all seem like such good friends?
“Let’s just focus on the free throws first. I don’t want to step out of the box just yet but I am working on my free throws right now.
“Oh my goodness that is so tough. I’m about to say Blake, we’ve been here the longest together.”
Dallas Feldman: Yo, Jordan! You’re my favorite player! I’m very impressed with the work you have been doing lately! My question for you is, if you could have one superpower what would it be and why?
“Wolverine’s power when he heals, like super healing power. Like if I get shot, the bullet just falls out and my wound just closes back up.”
Jason T (@jayclipper): Hey DJ, What are the goals that you aim to accomplish before your career is up? Keep up the good work!
“I want to be an All-Star, I want to win defensive player of the year multiple years, and I want to win multiple championships.”
Austin Krug (@DatDude_Krug): What went through your mind after you dunked on Brandon Knight last year?
“Initially I was just checking to see if he was alright because he fell kind of hard. Then after that, I really don’t remember much after Chris [Paul] pushed me, I feel like I just kind of blacked out. I know I said a couple bad words but it was fun. It was probably the highlight of my career.”
F Maroni (@EffMaroni): What song do you and Blake Griffin get turnt up to while driving?
“’I Knew You Were Trouble’ by Taylor Swift. I like that song a lot.”
Arturo Zambrano (@artzambrano10): DJ, in all honesty, who would win in a slam dunk contest you or Blake Griffin?
“Me (coughs). It’ll be a nice battle.”
