A Yeah, she noticed it after a while. Where did you get all these shoes from? I told her and she said, “Just tell me if you want shoes.” It took a while, but it was worth it.

 

Q How many pair do you own?

A Over 100, probably 150 or so.

 

Q Is there a prized pair in there?

A I have a few. I’d probably say my Olympic Jordan 6s that came out in 1996. I have those that are still in the box and I wore one time. I’d say a lot of shoe collectors would like to grab those off me.

 

Q How many still fit?

A I was growing when I was still in high school. I have a lot of size 13s that I just kept for hand-me-downs or a raffle thing. But I have a lot of size 14s and 15s, which is I what I wear now.

 

Q Have you worn most of them?

A Out of 100, I’ve probably worn 25 or 30. I just keep a lot of them in the box for myself or for hand-me-downs, whenever I have kids.

 

Q Do you wear the same shoes every night?

A I change every night, pretty much. I’ve done that since high school, college. I’m always wearing different shoes every game: Jordan, Nike, adidas. I wear pretty much anything. I’m not [signed] with anybody right now.

 

Q How many do you keep in your locker?
