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…)

NBA Rookies: Movie Casting

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few weeks ago, the NBA gathered all of this season’s incoming rookies here in the New York area for a few days of seminars as part of the Rookie Transition Program. The goal of the classes is to educate and inform, as the young players learn about how to handle various situations they may encounter.

But before the classes started, we began by having a little fun. At the Rookie Photo Shoot at the Knicks’ practice facility in Tarrytown, New York, we corralled as many rookies as we could and asked them some unconventional questions in order to find out the inside stuff.

We’ve been rolling out videos the last few days. Today’s final question: Who would play you in the movie of your life?

Blake held in check in Orlando

By Drew Packham

In case you missed it, the Magic did a decent job keeping Bad Blake from going off Tuesday night.

Griffin finished with 10 points and a team-high 12 rebounds for his 43rd double-double on the season, but the Clippers fell 101-85 in Orlando.

Despite the low scoring output, Griffin had a few highlights, including a pair of monster dunks.
