Continued: Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum is a shooter, talker

“I think we’d play well together,” he said of Rubio. “At the same time, they’d have to guard us. You look at the NBA now and it’s revolving around two guards who can shoot and create and score for each other, so I think Ricky Rubio and I would be great, just like Steph Curry and Jarrett Jack and Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis [in Milwaukee]. I like to say I shoot better than some of those guys.”

And he can talk with any of them.

He wants to pursue a broadcasting career when he is done playing and wrote for Lehigh’s student paper — “I’m a pretty good writer,” he said — even if he signed a document saying he wouldn’t cover the men’s basketball team because it would have been a conflict of interest.

“I can’t interview myself,” he said, “but God gave me a nice voice so I’m going to use it.”
