- Shaquille O’Neal
- Magic Johnson
You recently played in the great Western Classic, what are some things you learned from yourself and your game?
In the great Western Classic I was playing on a different team than I usually play with and we were missing a few guards. This made me handle the ball more than I usually do. It was great because I was able to get in-game reps. On the other hand it also showed me some flaws in my ball handling and that’s why I am working on my handles.
What are your favorite home cooked meals?
Steak and home made Mac ‘n Cheese
What are your goals when it comes to basketball?
I just want to continue to get better everyday and play at the highest level possible.
Do you have a dream college?
If you could choose 4 other local guys to play with in your class who would they be?
- Aisa Galeai

If the game is on the line and there is 10-seconds left, where do you want the ball for a game winner?
On the right side block.
Is there a player you pattern your game after?
Kai has great height for his age. While he will likely surpass 6’7 he has the athletic ability to perform at a high level at any sport. The fact that he is playing three sports could serve him well on the basketball floor. His hand-eye coordination is elite. He has soft hands and he embraces physical play.
