Most people do go back to school and then after two to three years they want to go back to work. After five years of working full-time they want to go back into business again. People who want to continue working as professional athletes are highly valued players.
What exactly do you do?
It’s not exactly something I enjoy doing, but it helps me to see what works in practice and what doesn’t.
What would you like your game to be tomorrow?
To be a great scorer in basketball and to put in the efforts necessary to dominate my game.
You’re a very competitive guy. How much pressure do you feel?
I try to stay out of the limelight. Even if I don’t get an opportunity to play on a team, I’m always available to watch.
Why is it difficult for you to make decisions during the game?
It’s hard because I have to weigh up the consequences of the decision if it’s based on the circumstances. If I have an opportunity to play on a team, and I make a mistake, I have to take responsibility.
What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses?
I love to get to know people. That’s one thing. I’m just excited that you’re even talking to me. I enjoy helping people be better. That’s also why I enjoy learning.
What are your goals with the Lakers?
I would like the Lakers to be a perennial contender. I want that to happen. I also want to be the best player the Lakers will ever have.
What does your team need to be able to do in order to be more competitive?
It’s not simple. When we talk about becoming a perennial contender, we need to be able to execute all the individual parts in a way that we win more games.
What do you see as your biggest strengths?
I’ve said this before and I’ll repeat it. I think I’m good in the post. I can shoot. I can pass the ball. I think I’m very good for the team because I bring both the experience and the ability to be successful, both now and in the future.
What about your weakness?
I’m not very good at putting the ball on the floor without the ball, and I don’t have the best feet.
