The All-Ball Rookie Photoshoot Video Wrap-Up

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Over the last eight days, we’ve been rolling out videos that we filmed a few weeks back at the Rookie Photo Shoot up in Tarrytown, New York. We asked the Rookies a bunch of fun questions, and as you can see in the videos, they played along, some more than other. It seemed that the sense of humor had an direct relationship to height, as guys like Steven Adams, Kelly Olynyk and Anthony Bennett were among the funniest people there. Then again, one of the smaller guys, Shane Larkin, was also a blast to chat with.

I’ll post all the videos below. But first, we ended up asking all the guys eight questions. I’ll post all eight questions here, with my answers in the comments at the bottom. Feel free to drop your answers in the comments at the bottom as well!

1. If they made a signature fragrance just for you, what would it smell like?

2. If you could pick your theme music during introductions, what would it be?

3. What TV show do you have set for a season pass on your DVR?

4. If you were on Iron Chef, what could you cook to win the competition?

5. What is the first concert you ever attended?

6. Who is the most famous person you’ve ever asked for an autograph?

7. What video game could you compete for a world championship in?

8. If they made the movie of your life, who would play you?

AND NOW, ALL THE VIDEOS… (more…)
