On The Clock With Wesley Matthews

By DHawes22 Posted in: WesleyMatthews
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 Wesley Matthews.

What's your favorite character on Martin?

Wesley Matthews: Martin, Cole, and Bruh Man (Ed Note: Wes originally said just Martin and Cole, but when I told him my favorite was Bruh Man he said to throw him in the mix too.)

What's your favorite character on Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

WM: Hilary and Carlton (Ed Note: This wasn't in my original list of questions but when I asked Wesley about his favorite character on Martin he said he actually liked Fresh Prince of Bel Air the best.)

Can you do the Carlton dance?

WM: Yes! I can do the Carlton dance.

What's your favorite cartoon?

WM:Phineas and Ferb

What's your favorite Friday movie?

WM: First one

Smokey or Dey-Dey?

WM: Dey-Dey

Where's your favorite place to eat in Portland?

WM: Jake's

What's the snack food you can't live without?

WM: Those Franz molasses cookies

What's your least favorite food?

WM: Unknown

If you didn't attend Marquette, you would have played basketball where?

WM: No idea. Marquette or bust.

WM: Goal scorer

WM: Concords

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

WM: Hersey Hawkins in his prime

Who's winning the Super Bowl this year?

WM: Vikings! ( Ed Note: I knew he'd go there, so I had to make sure to follow up with the next question. To his credit, Wes' Vikings overachieved and exceeded expectations this season. From having the 3rd pick in the draft to making the playoffs, it was a nice bounce back season for both the Vikes and Adrian Peterson who nearly set the single-season rushing record.)

Besides the Vikings?

WM: Probably the 49ers (Ed Note: I had to mention that, that was my team. But also gave props to the Vikings for dominating my squad back in Week 3.)

WM: Christina Millian

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

WM: Iron Man (Ed Note: And he did! The above photo was taken from his Instagram account after the Trail Blazers did indeed handle their business against the Lakers on Halloween night.
