The Questions with Marcus Camby

Nuggets Center

What was your welcome-to- the-NBA moment?
Putting up 29 points against the Knicks in the Garden [with Toronto as a rookie in 1996]. That's the best moment so far in my career.

This is an article from the April 18, 2005 issue

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I shot an air ball at the free throw line as a rookie. My mom and my sisters got on me about it, heckling me.

Your favorite off-day activity?
Bowling. I like to bowl with Voshon [Lenard, a teammate]. I'm not that good. I probably have a 175 average. I don't have the spin. I've got a straight ball.

If I weren't in the NBA, I'd be ...
A school principal. That's something that I really want to do and am looking forward to doing after my [playing] days are over.

If I were commissioner for a day, I'd ...
Make the schedule a lot shorter. Eighty-two games is a long, long season. I'd cut it down to 65.

Last Week

Camby, who studied education at UMass, averaged 11.7 rebounds and 10.0 points in three victories.

This Week

Camby and the hot Nuggets could wrest the West's No. 6 seed from Houston on Saturday.
