On The Clock With Meyers Leonard

By DHawes22 Posted in: Blazers
This past Media Day, I was fortunate enough to be able to sit down and interview the Trail Blazers and Head Coach Terry Stotts ... But these aren't your average, run-of-the-mill basketball questions. Without further ado, here is the next installment of "On The Clock" with Meyers Leonard.

Instagram or Twitter?

Meyers Leonard: Tie

If you didn’t attend Illinois, you would have played college basketball where??

ML: Nowhere

Who is the one former NBA legend you would love to match up with 1-on-1?

ML: Big Mike

What’s better: Finishing off an alley-oop or sending your opponent’s shot into the third row?

ML: Both

If you weren’t in the NBA, what sport would you go pro in and at what position?

ML: Baseball pitcher (Ed Note: In terms of Photoshopping players’ heads onto different bodies, this is, by far, my masterpiece to date. I also put Meyers in a Cards uniforms, because that’s his squad.)

Who is your favorite baseball player?

ML: Albert Pujols (Ed Note: Meyers said he is a big time St. Louis Cards fan and when I asked him on October 1st if they would make the playoffs, he believed they would. Not only did they make the playoffs, but they advanced to the NLCS.)

Who’s winning the Super Bowl this year?

ML: Packers (Ed Note: I asked Meyers if the St. Louis Rams were his NFL team since he was such a huge Cards fan, but he stated he was a Colts fan, through and through. He’s got to be thrilled Indianapolis is currently 6-4 and in the middle of the AFC playoff race. )

If you didn’t have to take care of the Lakers on Halloween, what would you have dressed up as this year?

ML: Batman. A custom Batman costume would be perfect.

ML: The Dark Knight. The Joker sets it apart.

Better trilogy: Back to the Future, Star Wars or Friday?

ML: Star Wars. It’s not even close.

If your house caught on fire and you could save only three things, what would they be?

ML: My Xbox, my cat Bonnie, and cellphone. (Ed Note: Meyers made sure Bonnie’s name would be spelled correctly in this blog.)

Madden or NBA 2K?

ML: Call of Duty

What’s currently being played on your iPod?

ML: Everything. Country. Rap. Hip-Hop. Chris Bown. Jason Aldeen. Luke Brian. Darius Rucker.

What was your favorite cartoon to watch growing up?

ML: Spongebob. He’s a beast and I can name so many lines. ( Ed Note: Easily my favorite response from all of my interviews on Media Day.)

If you could own any exotic animal, what would it be?

ML: Lion

Are you a dog or cat person?

ML: I never grew up around dogs, but I would love to get a Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky mix.

ML: Sinju

What’s the one snack food you can’t live without?
