Finding out what the business side of the NBA is all about, getting traded and dealing with not playing much in Portland;
The Clyde Drexler, Tracy Murray – Otis Thorpe, Marcelo Nicola, 1st round draft pick trade;
Houston’s 1995 championship team and not being included on the playoff roster;
The successful expansion 1995-96 Toronto Raptors team, them beating the 72-10 Bulls;
How loyal and trust-worthy Isiah Thomas is;
His time with the Washington Bullets/Wizards and the 50-point game in 1998;
The way he would have been a small-ball power forward in today’s game;
His time in Europe and playing for Željko Obradovič;

    Great stuff – your questions were great, pacing was good. Very professional. Love hearing these ‘lesser known’ players speak about their experiences. Do more!
