What was your favorite Pop moment? Cory Joseph: My favorite Pop moment … I was in Los Angeles one time and me and Manu (Ginobili) were on the elevator, going back up to my room. He got in the elevator with us and said, “We’re going to dinner if you want to come.” So I didn’t know what to say, and Manu is like “Yeah, sure.” I was like, “OK, I’ll come.” Obviously, a rookie is not going to turn it down. So I went to the dinner, and I remembered he had like four bottles of wine at the table and he was making me try them. You know, I’m coming from college. I didn’t drink wine at all. He was teaching me about the wine and made me try all the different wines, so by the end of the night, I was a little tipsy (laughs). And then the next day we had the Lakers and he put me in to play (laughs).
Did Matt teach you anything about how to save? Cory Joseph: Of course. I remember with Matt, I was eating dinner with him one time and we were talking as I ate. I had a dollar in my pocket or something, and he said, “Just remember, that dollar is two dollars, it’s just not a dollar because you know when you get paid, you get taxed and you have all these expenses. You spend that dollar, that’s two dollars.” I remembered that. I don’t get it. What did he mean two dollars? Cory Joseph: Remember we get taxed like 50 percent basically. After your taxes and agent fees, and all this stuff; so if you have a dollar after taxes, it took you to make two dollars to get that dollar.
