He told the sports publication: “I met my wife in high school and she would ask me, ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’ I knew I wanted to be in the NBA and be a (general manager).

“She didn’t so much laugh as in shock, like ‘What do you mean? Are you saying this to impress me? Or is this something that you really care about?'”
