NBPA: Reggie Bullock Q&A

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- You wanted to know, and IC asked the questions for you to UNC 2010 commitment Reggie Bullock at the NBPA Camp this week.

Since you are from Kinston, what role if any has Jerry Stackhouse played in your development as a basketball player?

He helped me do some trainings, he helped me work on my game. He has been like a person that I can call and talk to if there is anything going wrong with me or my family -- somebody I can lean on basketball-wise. He played a big role in my life since I've been in high school. He let know some of the things I need to do if I want to go to The League one day -- how to manage my money, he's there to help me.

What is your natural position in college, and what makes you suited to play that position?

My natural position in college is probably two-three, shooting guard or small forward. I can stroke it, I'm a team player, I can find the open man, rebound -- the three-man rebounds -- shoot it like a two. I'm long, I can grab rebounds like a four-man. I'm just an all-around player.

If you had to identify one aspect of your game that you will work on the most between now and the time you arrive at Carolina, what is that one aspect?

Probably ball-handling, just being able to break a man down and get straight to the hole. And getting better on my shots.

Growing up in North Carolina, naturally you are familiar with the in-state rivalries. When you are playing at Carolina, are you looking forward to beating Duke or NC State more and why?

I want to beat Duke because there are some players here who are going to Duke, and we are always talking like, 'We're going to beat y'all in the ACC' or whatever. North Carolina-Duke has always been a rivalry so that is one of the teams I really want to play and be able to beat.

At the end of your career at Carolina, what do you want your legacy to be?

Winning a national championship, hitting the most threes in a game, and just being one of the best players Roy Williams ever coached.

What is your favorite go-to move on offense?

Probably coming off of a pick-and-role, hesitate, and get straight to the hole or if I'm coming out in the middle of the court, I just fake like I'm about to cross-over and just pull up.

What college or NBA player would you say your game resembles the most?

Kevin Durant, that's why I wear number 35. I [emulate] my game after him. I see some of the things he does. He rebounds the ball, he's tall, athletic, shoots like a two-man. He just can do it all.

Who is the best player you have ever played against?

Best player I ever played against? (Pause) I don't know about the best player, but one of the players I played against that made me say 'Woah!' scoring-wise is Malik Wayns.

Have you had a chance to play pick-up with the current players, and what was that like?

I haven't had a chance to play with them since the freshmen got down there, but I played with them last year when Ed Davis and them first got there. It has been really good to go up there. They treat you like family. Just being part of the team, they already treat you like a little brother. It's a place like home, and that is one of the reasons I chose that school.

Do you have a nickname that your friends and teammates call you?

Short for Bullock, they call me 'Baby Bull.' Bullock means 'baby bull,' so they call me 'Bull' or 'Superstar' or 'The Future,' things like that.

Have you thought about a major at UNC?

I probably will major in communications or business administration.

What is something that you think UNC fans would find interesting about you that most people don't know?

Probably that I like to swim. I like to swim, hang out, meet new people.
