Dime: What do you want to get out of your digital presence?
jose3030: Ultimately the league and sports in general is moving towards instant results and “Hey, I just saw this and I want to see it again” type of deal. I want to be one of the guys that starts the whole process. They don’t have to be near a TV, they can look at it on their iPhone or BlackBerry. It keeps people in-tune without actually having to be there, sitting and watching the TV.
I just do it as a hobby because I have my own career, so I don’t have to do this. It’s possible that I may eventually hand over the keys to somebody else. I just want people to be able to get information they wouldn’t be able to get any other way.
Dime: Who’s the biggest celebrity that has retweeted or reposted your content?
jose3030: I was browsing through a forum about a year ago and people were posting Photoshops of Kobe Bryant after those pictures of him came out of him wearing white looking like a Jedi or something. I posted some pictures on my TwitPics, and before you know it, Ashton Kutcher was like, “Jose, these pictures are hilarious,” and he posted the TwitPic link to Twitter. He’s the biggest one.
Questlove is a good friend and he’s retweeted a lot of things I’ve done. Not really on sports tips, but mostly on music tips. I try to promote music through late-night TV performances and really anything music related on TV.
Dime: Who’s your favorite NBA team and player?
jose3030: My favorite team is the Boston Celtics. I don’t really have a favorite player. If I were to say favorite Celtic I’d say Paul Pierce, but he needs to stop flopping so much (laughs).
Dime: Who do you think is going to win the title this year?
jose3030: I think the Lakers will pull it out in the Western Conference. In the Eastern Conference, Chicago Bulls. I know I’m a Celtics fan, but the Bulls just really put everything together this year. The MVP is definitely Derrick Rose. Between the Lakers and the Bulls I think the Bulls might pull it out.
