It’s good. It’s definitely helpful to see some familiar faces. They were on my team my rookie year, so they kind of helped mold my professional career in a way. So it’s good to have them back around, because they’re good friends and good professionals.

I usually play a lot of video games, or spend a lot of time with my dog (the one in my Twitter picture), Kaya.

I would say my best advice is to just let him have fun. If they’re not having fun they’re going to get burned out, maybe switch sports. But if you want to develop the skills, teach them both feet, it’s very important later. So let them have fun.

For funniest, it just depends on the time. But there’s always some good banter between Ryan, Connor, Heath, Dax, and Brandon. They all come up with some pretty good lines at times.

I’m gonna go with Smokin’ Jack’s Rib Shack. Cheap, and good food.

I probably wouldn’t go anywhere to be honest, because I don’t really like driving. But if I had to pick it would probably be just somewhere warm and with my dog.

I still have yet to see the Statue of Liberty, so that’s definitely on my list. Other than that, I wouldn’t mind catching a Yankees game or something like that too.

I played a little bit of basketball in high school and that would’ve been a great sport to play in college in Indiana. If I played in college, I’d probably be starting at the two guard spot.

No story really. I used to listen to a lot of old school rap, and the rapper Easy-E used to say “Easy Duz It,” and one of my friends calls me EZ, so I just kind of put it together. And 17 was the number I wore in Portland.

I didn’t even realize it was up for debate. It’s gotta be Messi.

I’ve been on the road and my Xbox is still in Portland, but overall it’s still at a very high level.

They did a solid job. I imagine they followed their game plan. The whole team put a solid defensive effort in. It’s a hard place to play, so they did their jobs.

It was exciting. Those guys obviously have a reputation for being amazing players and it was helpful that I saw some familiar faces like Dax, Heath, and Kosuke. It’s been a pretty easy transition so far.
