Dime caught up with and of the New Jersey this week. Here's what went down:

Dime: What does your armband say?

: It's a KM6 logo.

Dime: Did you design it yourself?

KM: No, actually someone else did and I just picked one out.

Dime:Are there a bunch of different designs?

KM: Yeah, yeah. I may switch it up halfway through the season. Give people a different look.

Dime: Maybe put it on your own signature shoe?

KM: No, well, I might. I'm thinking about it but I don't know yet.

Dime: Thank you, Kenyon. We'll be on the lookout for it if you do.

KM: Alright. I gotta run to the bathroom.

Dime: Can I give you a question to think about while you're in there?

KM: You better talk to someone else. I'm going to be a while.


Dime: What is the most memorable NBA moment of your childhood?

: I remember the celebration when the won back to back championships. Also, all the great rivalries between the and . Growing up I used to hate the , still do [laughs].

Dime: What happened to Stanford in the recent tournament?

JC: Montana! Yeah! In our tournament man! In our own tournament, it was the Stanford invitational. We can't be losing that.

Dime: Do you have a car?

JC: [Laughs] Yeah! I just have an Expedition. K-Mart probably has funner toys than I do. I don't have a lot of toys or anything like that.

Dime: What kind of music are you into?

JC: Regular hip-hop. You know, Eminem, Nelly, Snoop Dogg, I like a whole bunch of music. Jay-Z. You can't forget about Jay-Z.

Dime: What are you listening to now?

JC: Right now, I'm listening to a bunch of songs off of Jay-Z's new album. A couple of them are good songs. I like the radio stations, 97.1 and 105.1. I listen to Power [105] and Hot 97. So whatever is hot I listen to.

Dime: What type of music player do you have?

JC: I just have a laptop computer and that's it. I don't have a lot of toys and everything like that. I'm pretty frugal.

Dime: Bought any holiday gifts?

JC: Honestly, there's something that the organization does. We shop for kids who are disadvantaged and we try to make it the best Christmas for them. That's one of the few things I've done. That's basically all. I get gifts for my family stuff and take care of my family during the year. Christmas isn't exactly something I get all geared up for.

Dime: Do you have a favorite drink?

JC: No. I don't really drink that much.

Dime: Do you have a favorite food? You got to have one of those.

JC: Chicken, seafood. I'll eat just about anything. I've tried just about everything just to say I've done it once. Everything from chicken, which is very ordinary, to sea urchin.

Dime: Sea urchin?

JC: Sea urchin.

Dime: Was that a piece of sushi?

JC: Oh yeah. That was part of the sushi platter. I wouldn't recommend the sea urchin. I'd stick with the regular stuff. Sea urchin was very ... different. I'll eat just about anything though.

Dime: All right. Thank you for your time and good luck this season.

JC: No problem. I've got to get a heat pack for me knee now anyway.

Dime: What for? Sympathy pains?

JC: [Laughs]
