  10. What is it like to be an NBA player

20. Who do you think are the top 5 greatest NBA players of all time and why

Nik as an actual person was very nice but there were some things that he said that I would disagree with…

When I asked him “Who do you think is going to win MVP this year?” He responded by saying “I think Westbrook is going to win but I personally think that Lebron James deserves it”. It got even worse when I asked him who do you think is going to win the championship this year? He awnsered by saying “I think the Cav’s are going to win”. (Most of you know that I am a warriors fan and that the warriors lost to the Cav’s in the finals last year Cough* Cough* Rush. As a warriors fan I was deeply offended.) But somehow it got worst when I asked him my final question. “Who do you think are the top 5 greatest NBA players of all time and why?”. He answered by saying I am going to put Jordan at #1 but if Lebron won another championship I will put Lebron at  #1. His top 5 was so twisted that he didn’t even put Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in it. Thank you for reading, Hope you enjoy! P.S. Boo Cav’s!
