Someday, I’d like to be driving a
… Range Rover.

The best part of my hometown is … That everyone supports me and we’re all together. We’re all real close.

My dream city to be living in 10 years from now is … Los Angeles.

The ultimate compliment is when I get compared with … Kevin Durant.

If I could be teammates with one pro athlete in any sport, it’d be … LeBron James.

If I could meet anybody, it would be … Kim Kardashian.

The websites I couldn’t live without are … USATodayHSS.com.

The greatest meal ever is … Japanese food.

Best movie of all-time is … Hunger Games.

My can’t-miss TV show is … Teen Wolf.

My favorite pro team is … Oklahoma City Thunder.

Worst thing about pro sports is … That they don’t work as hard as they did to get there.

Best uniforms in sports belong to … Miami Heat.

One thing my coach always says that I’ll never forget … When you’re not working hard someone else is.

I will consider myself a success when I … Have been in the NBA for about seven years and producing at a high level.

If I won the lottery, the first thing I’d buy is … My mom a house.

If I could tell one person thanks, it would be … My high school coach. For … Pushing me to be better every day; academically and in the gym.

JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …

Thank you Reid Travis!

You probably don’t know this but Reid Travis is a senior at DeLaSalle (Minneapolis, Minn.) who recently announced that, after a big summer on the AAU circuit, he’s decided not to play football in his high school finale.

That’s really smart on so many levels.

His ticket is on the hardwood – with dozens of offers from elite programs – and kudos to him for recognizing that and making a mature decision.

Oh I hear what you’re thinking: “How can you say that! He turned his back on his team!”

No, he chose him; and he did it before the season ever started giving his football team ample time to find a viable replacement under center.

I wish more players would make the hard call; there are plenty of basketball players who wouldn’t have to pay college tuition if they’d just walk onto a football field.

Don’t let your misguided dreams cause the nightmare of student loan payments in the future.

As you were…

WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …

“I am so hungry for football, like y’all don’t even know. You probably think you do but you don’t. Trust me. Real talk.” – Hoover (Birmingham, Ala.) cornerback Marlon Humphrey
