Mike Dunleavy joined NBA.com for a live chat shortly after being drafted by the Warriors with the third pick overall.
Mike are happy with the Warriors choosing you?
I'm really excited about it. They've got a good young group of talent that I look forward to contributing to.
Lou (Phoenix, AZ) :
How much of an influence did your father have on your game while growing up?
He's had a big influence both on and off the court and he's really helped me out with my basketball skills and with my recent decision.
Sam (Folsom, CA):
Mike, how does it feel to play for a team that already has such young players as Jason Richardson and Gilbert Arenas
I'm excited about it. I think I fit right in. Although the guys are young, they have the mindset to improve and win as soon as possible and I want to bring a winning attitude myself.
Mike D. - What was the best thing that Coach K taught you that will help you the most in the NBA?
I think Coach has helped me out a lot with basketball. I've learned more from him about how to conduct yourself off the basketball court, which I think will carry me very far in life.
Mike I which position do you see your self coming season? Starting on SF or PF? Or maybe a 6th man? What do you think?
First and foremost, I think I'm just a basketball player, but I see myself playing small forward.
Mike, What is the thing you will miss most at Duke?
The thing I'll miss the most about college is my teammates who I enjoyed playing with and building relationships with over the past three years.
Mike- How do you think you'll be able to adjust to the nba your rookie season?
The biggest adjustment for me will be getting used to the style of play and the NBA lifestyle.
Thanks to Mike Dunleavy for stopping by!
