We had the opportunity to sit down and chat with the Memphis Grizzlies’ Rudy Gay at the recent NBA 2K8 media event at Rucker Park in New York. Matt Blumenthal conducted the interview.
Operation Sports: "The big new feature for NBA 2K8 is the slam dunk contest. How do you compare your dunking ability to your peers? When was the first time you ever dunked?"
Rudy Gay: "I consider myself a good dunker, but there are a lot of guys out there who are really athletic and do some crazy things in the air. I can’t say I’m the best at anything like that. My first dunk was in 8th grade going into 9th grade, man that was a great time. It wasn’t that hard."
