“I don’t really go out to eat that often, but when I do, I go to Yao’s. I get the sweet and sour chicken and the shrimp fried rice.”

What’s your shoe size and your favorite pair of shoes ever?

“My shoe size is 16 and may favorite pair of sneakers would have to be, I think they were called foam Penny Hardaways or something like that.

What CD do you have in your CD player right now or music in your mp3 player?

“Well, Jay-Z is my favorite. He’s in all the rotations.”

If you had three hours to yourself to do whatever you wanted, what would it be?
