From the Hall of Famers and on, it was loaded. So, you’re drafted by the Bucks at No. 8. There’s this picture floating around of you in these big-ass shorts. Where’d you get those, man? TJ Ford: “You have to do the rookie-transition program. I don’t know how it was for you, Poz, but they had the gym set up at the Knicks’ practice facility. It’s where you did all the media and you did all the stuff for the video games and that’s where they gave everybody their uniforms. So, when I got there, that’s what the Bucks had sent me. I’m like, ‘Yo… What? What you want me to do with this?’ They were like, ‘That’s all we’ve got. It’s either you wear them or you won’t get these photos.’ I’m like, ‘Shoot, I wanna have my rookie card. I ain’t gonna miss this.’ So hey, we gotta do what we gotta do!”
