19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Backward because I don’t want to know what lies ahead of me. I can also change some of the things I’ve done or said.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask John Callipari if he cheats to get his players. Although I don’t think he does.
