Ron Baker here, excited to be here with everyone, feel free to AMA.
I'm currently a rookie for for the NY Knicks. We finish our last game of the season this Wednesday against the Sixers. What a fast season it's been.
I'm also an author of a children's book, "You're Too BIG To Dream Small". I got the motivation from my mother, who is a school teacher to publish this book. It shares my life long story. Take a look at it here: http://www.krakenbooks.com/toobig/

I came here to tell you that on a daily basis we share the same exhilarating feeling. Every morning I step foot in my Silver Hyundai Sonata for my commute to work. I caress the leather steering wheel while the power of 145 horses streaks through my veins. I can truly say that me and Ron Baker are the only ones who know this feeling (give or take a few hundred thousand people). My boss and co-workers truly know that when they see this stallion pull up to the office, indeed, business is coming.
Also, can we play one on one? If I win I receive a signed copy of your book. If I lose I still receive a signed copy of your book, because, well, Ron Baker the Shot Maker has a soft spot for his fans.

Why did you choose number 31?
[–]Rdbaker123[S] 178 指標 12小時前
When i was in elementary school in Healy, KS my parents were both coaches. My dad coached basketball and baseball. One of his athletes, Clint Johnson, coached my 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade rec basketball and baseball teams. When i was in 5th grade, Clint passed away. His number was 31. In 6th grade at Healy, we were allowed to play junior high sports. The number i chose was 31, for him. Ever since then, I've tried to pick that number while i play the game. Clint was someone i looked up to at a young age. I know he's proud of me. I'm still really close with his 2 brothers, Luke(2 years older then me) and Mark(6 years older then me).

Ron! Thank you for doing this, just want to let you know you've quickly become one of my favorite Knicks!
1. What's been the biggest adjustment for you this season?
2. What do you plan on working on this offseason?
[–]Rdbaker123[S] 120 指標 13小時前
Biggest adjustment, has to be the turnaround from game to game. 5 games in 7 days is extremely tough.
Always like to be more efficient. Couple things ill be working on, are: Ball screen reads, perimeter shooting, finishing at the rim and in the paint.
