Not really Spitty, like all sport now it's just part of the job and all about generating the big bucks.

I can't see how really as even at amateur level local papers etc want to talk to them. Only person I know never gave any interviews had a tremendous stutter and was just unable to do so, but he did do question and answer sessions on the internet. So still a form of interview really.

Bit of a generalization, all the basket ball players I've met have been really funny people with a really naughty sense of humour. I am sure there must be some out there who aren't but not that I've met.

So can the interviewers. They generally ask the most stupid questions.

Anything is possible, I have found, just keep your feet on the ground (this is important to remember).

It depends on if you are interested in Sport, Muddy

I like most sports so it doesn't worry me at all.
