I chatted with the Knicks guard — host of a new Esquire Network style series this summer — about being an L.A. son in NYC, his nonprofit Rising Stars of America and a beloved pair of kicks.
Welcome to New York! When you’re homesick for L.A., what do you do?
I haven’t found that place yet. I walk around in TriBeCa. It has a Santa Monica feel to it. It’s hard to find a place. I wish I had more time to spend in Central Park. I’m fascinated by it. There’s a zoo! It’s beautiful and it’s in the middle of the city. Where can you find something like that?
