dude seems pretty smart, currently developing a mobile apps
1. he think he could still compete, and teams, in which he think he could contribute(his wishlist) are: NYK, nets, bulls, lakers
2. when he was asked about who are his current starting five:
GA: LeBron [James] at the 1; Kobe [Bryant] at the 2; Kevin Durant at the 3; Tim Duncan at the 4; and Dwight Howard at the 5.
3. he seems like a big fans of kobe and bron, when asked about all time list:
GA: Yes, I do. I do. LeBron at the 1; Kobe-[Michael] Jordan at the 2-3. If they played in the triangle that's what it would be. My 4? That's a tough one. Hakeem Olajuwon at the 4, and Wilt [Chamberlain] at the 5.
4. when asked about injury advice:
B/R: Is there any advice you would offer Kobe, as someone who worked through injuries, on how to get back and deal with this moving forward?
GA: With him, no, I wouldn't. There's no advice I could give the best player in the world who has been through injury. If I had to give somebody advice, it would have been Derrick Rose .
5. ohh for people who think this dude is delusional,
GA: What he did last year when he missed the whole season was perfect. I loved every moment of it. That's what he should've done. If I could've [waited] longer, that's what I would've done.
When I saw the first preseason game, and everybody was, 'Oh, Derrick Rose is back,' I said to myself, 'He's not going to last 15 games.' Derrick Rose's problem was that, when you land, your knee comes inward. While I'm watching the games, he was—like him and [Russell] Westbrook, they're wild jumpers. Every time he jumps, he's wild. Every time he lands, he's wild. His ability never changed. He never corrected his jumping pattern or his landing pattern.
It was like having a Ferrari on not Ferrari tires. You have it on spare tires. So that's how I would put it: He has a Ferrari engine on spare tires—eventually, they're going to blow.
But when I saw him jumping, I was like, 'Oh man, I wish I could talk to him and say listen, you need to change your game a little bit. You can't go in the lane jumping and exploding like you did. Your body's not ready for it.'
My advice, especially for the first month of basketball, first two months: Just change the way you play. Stay on the ground as much as possible. Don't hit the lane as hard with so much force. That's what you should learn—like with Westbrook. He should have perfected that mid-range game over the summer.
and he's right, both rose and westbrook went down, seems like he knows what he' talking about, and his mobile apps is quite a success
