"Playing NBA basketball was my first dream. I always followed the 76ers when they had Bobby Jones, Mo Cheeks and I could go on. Now, I don't consider myself a die-hard NBA fan. I follow the Orlando Magic because Shaq played at LSU. I never played with him down there because his first year was when I played baseball only."
