Mayo is the first one up.

And he compares himself to Earl Monroe.

Chris (Dallas, Tx): What classes did enjoy most at USC?
O.J. Mayo: I enjoyed this media class. I forget what it was called. About entertainers and the media. I can use a little bit of what I learned in that class in my life now. It was about, for instance, the difference between different news services and the like.

Yeah, I bet.

Abbott with a dumb question saying "We had heard you'd play with Derrick Rose at Indiana, what happened?" Um, no. Rose always favored Memphis.

Eric Gordon: Towards the end of the first season, the turmoil did affect my status. It was hard core. Towards the end of the season, we lost seven out of nine games. Without Coach Sampson, our whole team was finished. I think Indiana will be pretty good within the next three or four years.

Eric Gordon: I have been hearing I'll be drafted from four to seven. Seattle, Memphis, New York, the Clippers. I have no preference.

Of course he doesn't. Memphis, New York, LA...all the same.

Mike (toronto, on): Eric, a lot of people are comparing you to Ben Gordon of the Bulls. How legit is that? How are you different?

Eric Gordon: It's pretty legit. I'm probably more explosive, and take it to the hole more. I'm a little taller.

Christian (Charlotte,NC): Eric, how do you feel about the criticism being thrown your way, i.e. too short to play 2 guard and weak ball handling?

Eric Gordon: It really doesn't matter. It's all about producing. Ben Gordon of the Bulls is undersized and he's playing almost like an All-Star. I can handle the ball, I was just never asked to play PG in college.

Um, almost like an all star? Thats a pretty liberal use of the word almost.

Also Gordon I don't know if you realized it or not, but there were games where you were asked to play PG.

Eric Gordon: I worked out for Minnesota, Seattle, New York, and the Clippers. All of them were in new gyms. The practice facilities were nice. I could be comfortable at any of those places.
------
That was an unprovoked entry by Gordon. No question prompted it.

Henry Abbott: Are you one of those athletes who is really careful about what you eat?
Eric Gordon: I stay away from a lot of bread. I drink water. I don't eat any dessert. Never.
Eric Gordon: Eating like that, and playing hard every day, I have lost a good 15 pounds.

I doubt that any of the prospects are sitting at a computer typing. I'm sure that Abbott is asking them questions in person or over the phone and transcribing their answers.

OJ, you didn't really have to go to class at USC, did you?

Henry Abbott: You know a lot of NBA players?
Henry Abbott: I know Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye, Mike Bibby, Jason Terry ... they help me. I'm trying to figure this out for myself.

Oops. :lol: Question was supposedly for Bayless.
