-Let me talk about
what do you off the court, ’cause you do
a lot of great stuff. The Why Not? Foundation. -Yeah, man. To me,
that’s the most important, besides my family, like, the
most important thing I focus on -Yeah.
-…is impacting youth. I think especially
today’s society with social media and everything
else going on in the world, impacting and inspiring youth is
the most important thing to me and the most important thing
I think in the world today that not just myself,
but everybody should focus on. -And it’s called Why Not?
because you’re saying — -Yeah, my Why Not?
It’s just kind of like my motto. It’s kind of what I stand by
since high school, something that I’ve kind of
instilled in my brain and the way I live. -Like, “Why not try”
or “Why not me?” -“Why not you?”
Why not be a doctor? Why not be a NBA player? Because a lot of people
doubt kids, guys like myself, women all across the world. But if you believe in yourself
and tell yourself, “Why not me? Why not?
Why can’t I be a billionaire? Why can’t I be this?
Why can’t I be that?” And I think it’s important that we instill self-confidence
before anything else. -And you’re teaching these kids
self-confidence. [ Cheers and applause ] And the kids look up to you,
and they love you. I think it’s great. You’re doing the thing now
with tech. -Yes. So, I collaborated with a company in L.A.
called Conservation Corps. And they have a great program, just not a lot of people
know about it. And I thought it was a great way for me to kind of start
this year off, this summer off by collaborating with them
and doing a lot of things and working with drones and tech and figuring out different ways to be able to expand,
you know — -Programming and coding
and all that. -Programing and coding.
I grew up in the inner city. And I think, for me,
the program is bringing those kids
out of the inner city and figuring out a way
to be able to understand coding, understanding how to do drone
and all these different things so when there is
a job opportunity, they know exactly
what they’re doing. They understand what it is, and
they can get a job in the world. -Good for you. I think it’s cool
that you’re doing that. [ Cheers and applause ] And then, Honor the Gift. -Yeah.
-Honor the Gift. You’re wearing it tonight, which I love.
-Yeah. -This is your clothing line?
-Yes, it is. -Now, this is cool.
I mean, you do have some good — You have some good fashion.
You have good taste. -I mean, listen, I’m gonna say
not that bad. It’s not that bad. -I’d say it’s probably
like a 95. -If we’re going —
[ Laughter ] -94, 95. -That works. That’s good.
I can stick with that rating. -You’re gonna stick with that
rating on that one? Yeah. I-I learned how to dance — a lot of music video dancing
tonight from J.Lo. -Oh.
-But it turns out — Yeah, exactly, yeah. Well, she’s not the only one
who’s known for their dancing. You have — You have
