    Hey Elie,
    I have e-mailed you before and I really enjoy the way you interview the players. I am majoring in broadcasting/journalism and will be finishing up school at Cal State LA and was just wondering what were some rules or guidelines to follow when interviewing players. I want to make sure if and when I interview players that they know I respect them and their time.

    Thanks, Andrew Wester.

    Elie, how does it feel to be at a losing end in a bet with Kobe? What was harder–having to make yourself believe that Kobe made that half-court left-handed shot or having to do the 200 push-ups?

    HAHAHA! That was a classic though. I remember the time that happened, Paul Sunderland was still the Laker announcer.
