The NBA regular season is off to a fast paced, exciting start as fans witnessed to some jaw dropping performances. As a treat to the loyalty and bond they share with hoop fans worldwide, the NBA created a dope experience to let their fans inside the world of your favorite baller on and off the court. Players league wide took the time out to answer some intriguing questions while letting out interesting cool facts about themselves. For instance, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant likes to listen to “Come Go With Me” by Teddy Pendergrass. Miami Heat guard Dywane Wade was inspired to play basketball after watching the 1991 NBA Finals when he was nine years old.

Newly acquired Knicks forward Kyle O’Quinn‘s favorite show to watch is “Martin” and the “Big Ticket” himself, Kevin Garnett was the inspiration for him playing basketball. His teammate and starting center Robin Lopez believes that Carmelo Anthony is the best dressed teammate. In addition, he believes that if he wasn’t a NBA player, he would’ve been a cartoonist. Brandon Rush from the reigning world champion Golden State Warriors has “Where Are You Now“,  “What Do You Mean” by Justin Bieber and “Gangnam Style” by Psy on his playlist and also believes he would be a cool magician if he wasn’t a NBA player.
