THE WORLD ACCORDING TO LONNIE

WITH THE 18TH PICK IN THE NBA DRAFT, THE SAN ANTONIO SPURS SELECT ... LONNIE WALKER IV, THE MOST INTERESTING ROOKIE IN THE WORLD
July 02, 2018

ON HIMSELF

"I'm a weird kid. Being uncomfortable is really my comfortable."

ON THE MOST MEMORABLE PREDRAFT QUESTION ASKED BY AN NBA TEAM:

"They asked me, 'If you were a utensil, what utensil would you be?' I said a spork. It's universal. You can be a spoon for cereal or a fork for dinner. They were like, " 'We've never heard that.'"

ON WHETHER HE BELIEVES THE MOON LANDING

"The background, the surroundings—y'all tried to make it look too much like a moon. The details were almost too great. There's no way it looks this nice or is this well done."

ON WHAT HE LEARNED FROM KYRIE IRVING'S "FLAT EARTH" CONTROVERSY:

"I think it played out great. People engaged more on him. Even people that didn't know Kyrie before obviously know about him now. It's good to define who you are. He went to Duke. He's smart, he has his own personality and opinions. When he said that, it was dope. Now you look at everything they're doing [marketing it] and trending with it, it's very intelligent."

ON THE ETHICS OF AQUARIUM SHOWS

"I love dolphins and killer whales. I try to stay away from [organized dolphin shows]. How would a human feel if they were just locked up in a small place for the rest of their life? Doing the same thing over and over again. It's like prison for something they didn't really do."

ON THE PLANET

"In my opinion, Earth is part of an illusion, but I still have things to research. I'm an open-minded person. This isn't something to disrespect Earth. It's a possibility."

ON PREHISTORIC TIMES

"One of my closest friends thinks all humans used to be giants."
