Here are a few questions taken from Mayberry's interview, but we encourage you to read the whole thing:

***

Q: You’re an extremely loyal guy. What made you feel like it was time for a change?

A: I just felt it was a good opportunity for me and the Jordan Brand. They have a great staff over there that supports their players and I thought it was a good spot for me.

***

Q: For a while there were whispers that you had joined adidas. Was there anything to those rumors, and how close were you to signing with adidas?

A: Nah, I don’t know where that came from. I guess somebody just kind of made that up. They were an option, but they weren’t nowhere close.

***

Q: Does Michael Jordan still handpick the players he wants to represent his brand?

A: Yes. I think so. To my knowledge, I think he wants guys that relate to the brand. I don’t think they want too many guys. But they want guys that relate to the brand.

***

Q: What’s your all-time favorite Jordan’s?

A: The 11s, the Space Jams. (I like) the patent leather. They come in a variety of different colors and they’re comfortable. They’re one of the best ones, I think.

***

Q: What has been your reaction to fans and media that showed so much interest in which shoe company you would endorse?

A: It was crazy. I didn’t know too many people paid attention to that type of stuff, especially when people sign new shoe deals. But I had a lot of attention on it. I didn’t know a lot of people paid that much attention to it, to tell you the truth. It kind of surprised me.
