Q: You have to guard some of the best players in the league in Lebron, KD, Melo and others, what is going through your head in those situations? How to you prep the pregame for these match ups?

CP: Love the challenge of guarding a superstar. Trying to make it as difficult as possible for them and give up no easy baskets.

Q: Are there any particular older players that you have somewhat tried to model your game after? Anyone who you looked up to and wanted to play like?

CP: Grant Hill, Scottie Pippen, and of course Kevin McHale.

Q: If a massive free-for-all brawl broke out in the locker room, which Rocket would go down immediately or refuse to participate?
