Zach LaVine: iPhone or Android?The Minnesota Timberwolves' Slam Dunk Champ Zach Lavine talks about his favorite phone, the gadget he has to have on road trips, his first time doing motion capture for NBA 2K17 and the one thing he wishes his phone could do.
[MUSIC] All right, we are here with Zach Lavi, Minnesota Timberwolves and a Slam Dunk champ. Yeah. Still current Slam Dunk champ. Are you planning a revisit that or what do you think, are we going to see a rematch? Man, I don't even know, man. And how it's, me and you who have ran out of dunks, I feel like. So, I don't know. Maybe, maybe. We saw you do a bunch of dunks here for NBA 2K17. Is this the first time you've done a motion capture session? How was that like for you? Yeah, it was cool. I fell like a Power Ranger in the suit, but it was all good. Getting to see your body in different angles and different cameras and You know like the skeleton. So it was different. Positives of the suit, and maybe negatives of the suit for you [LAUGH] Positives. It attracts heat, so if it's a cold day you stay warm. Negatives. If it's a hot day you're burning up. So- [LAUGH] You know, I was a little itchy. [LAUGH] Itchy inside the suit. Yea. Social media obviously a big thing, and it exploded really to that larger audience at the Dunk Fest. How do you involve yourself with social media whether it's things like Snapchat, Twitter Instagram Mostly Instagram. I don't tweet a lot, I don't got a lot to say. I retweet a lot of stuff but [LAUGH] it's [INAUDIBLE] you know. I post a lot of pictures, a lot of videos. I do a lot of family stuff, a lot of day to day stuff, my workouts. iPhone or Android, what's your phone of choice? I gotta go iPhone man. It's just the go to, the go to. I got a couple of both but Still go to. On the road, you know, I know you travel a lot, with, you know, as a player, but are there any other tech gadgets you like, whether its cameras or things that you're interested in? My PS4 man, I'm good. Yeah, I usually bring my PS4 along on, on a games, on road trips to play. Maybe a pair of scissors [LAUGHTER] Yeah, yeah I don't know Scissor tech? Yeah, scissor tech. Yeah, I don't know, man. Yeah, that's I'm not the biggest gadget guy. I know that you're a busy guy but, with your phone, if there's something that your phone could do for you today that it doesn't do. What do you wish your phone had or could do? It could be anything wacky or it could just be actually practical. I mean auto correct messes up some times so I wish it could just always know exactly what I want to say and how I want to say it in my texts. But then I use my voice text half the time anyway so. We'll talk to Apple about that one for you, right? Right, we should talk to- They need to fix that up. Yeah, they need to know exactly what I wanna say and I might not be the best speller but I want it spelt the correct way too. [LAUGH] Thanks for your time. We appreciate it. Thank you. [MUSIC]
