Questions From the 6th Man: Aaron Brooks

Get an inside look at Aaron Brooks, as the guard answers an array of questions  – about life on and off the court – submitted by Kings fans via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

AB: “Just keep working – there’s a place for you in the NBA. Every team has a small guard. Don’t let anybody tell you, ‘You can’t do it,’ because it’s possible.”

AB: “I just feel like I’m a more well-rounded person. To adjust and adapt to it, get through it and not complain, I just feel like I’m a more grounded person and a better player. I enjoyed myself in China.”

AB: “I just liked the pieces they have. (DeMarcus) Cousins, Tyreke (Evans), Isaiah (Thomas), (Francisco Garcia) – this is an up-and-coming team and very talented, and I think we can win some games here.”

AB: “I think we play similarly – we like to get up-and-down, run and score. We need to focus on defense a little bit more – I think we all need to do that.”

AB: “80 percent overall. To be honest, I don’t really know exactly what it is, because it’s all abbreviated, but 80 percent is pretty good.”

AB: “(I need to work on) decision-making, (committing fewer) turnovers, my assist-to-turnover (ratio) and being efficient. I don’t know (what the strongest part of my game is) – you’ll have to watch and see.”

AB: “Probably Tyreke – he’s very versatile and can get into the paint. I think we complement each other well because on the outside you have to guard me and (his driving) leaves me open. Everybody’s pretty good, though.”

AB: “Everybody helps each other out. As a veteran in the League, when you’re in the game, you see stuff. As far as practice, we’ve all played basketball for all our lives. About three years of NBA experience is probably not that much, and seeing that I just (arrived) here and some of these guys have been here for a few years, I might ask for a little help myself on plays.”

AB: “Cisco – (I’ll learn) just how to be a veteran, roll with the punches. He’s real chill, laid back (and can) teach me how to salsa.”

AB: “We’ve never raced, but I’m sure he’ll say he’s faster.”

AB: “The fans are dedicated. They’ve always been good fans here, they’ve always had good support. They’re loyal. The city’s been pretty cool – I’m enjoying myself here.”

AB: “Anything is possible. We’re trying to get to the Playoffs – any seed possible – and go from there. We just want to see the crowd rocking. We want to see everybody there, so it’s definitely a goal and motivation for us.”
