It's half time now. He'll probably be on in the next 5-10 minutes.

Just talked for a minute, will talk more after commercials.

Basic stuff so far:

How well do you think you'll do in the all-star game now that it's your third.

Answer was basically the first two were to get his feet wet and now that he's established, and it's LA, he might have to pull something out of his bag of tricks.

Difference between Carlisle and Isiah.

Answer was Rick tells you what he wants and if he doesn't get it you sit, Isiah was more intense/yelled/sometimes tore up the lockerroom. Both want to win badly.

Difference between Artest '03 and Artest '04.

Answer was last year he tried to get attention by doing things outside of the game, this year he's more comfortable and is focusing on playing the game.

Like I said, basics.

We'll see what's said coming up here now.

Less spectacular second half.

Asked him about his career, he reiterated his mindset of being one of the best power fowards in the league, always working hard, doing the dirty work, and always improving.

Also telling Chuck that he knows he's picked Indy the past couple years to come out of the East, and that this was the year it happens.

Past that, it was just joking around from the studio crew.
