Hey, guys, I'm doing this AMA In the Middle of Anywhere, thanks to U.S. Cellular, and I'm excited to answer your questions. Besides basketball, I'm a fashion designer with my own line, and I have a foundation that is very near and dear to my heart. The Why Not? Foundation where we inspire children to never give up.

So, ask me about life as a pro player, growing up in L.A. or even fashion advice.

I have someone to help me write and navigate this crazy site.


Gotta run! Thanks reddit: https://twitter.com/USCellular/status/654411623675789312
