Excerpts from the show include:
On coming to play for the Phoenix Suns:
When I got to Phoenix, I got Kevin Johnson, Dan Majerle, Mark West, Oliver Miller and those guys and I told them ‘we are going to get to the finals because I am the best player in the conference and the only guy I think is better than me in basketball is Michael Jordan.’
On his “I am not a role model” Nike commercial:
The role model thing is probably the greatest thing I have done in my career because it started a nationwide debate.
On why he started playing basketball:
“It kept me out of trouble. I wasn’t any good. I wasn’t even good enough to play actually. I played on a recreational league where you have to pay to play.
