Heath tosses in a Baron Davis highlight film -- "Baron's like my older brother. We go way back." -- and plops on the couch. When asked to sit like he always does in his throne, Heath grabs a pillow and watches Davis for eight minutes.

Heath has an extensive movie collection, though nowhere near Gilbert Arenas'. Among his collection is "The Godfather" trilogy and "He Got Game." But Heath's favorite movie is "The Greatest Game Ever Played." Well, besides the BD highlight videos.There was one video in his collection that raised some eyebrows, but Heath made me promise I wouldn't write about it. We'll leave it at that.

Heath had to have a little Feng Shui in his apartment, which he decorated with the help of his girlfriend, former SDSU women's basketball player Michelle Strawberry. The label that Heath says best defines him is tranquility.

Heath lives and dies by "Bottoms." He was in 11th grade when he got the name tattooed onto his arm, after he felt he had earned it by putting time in the gym.
