He thinks Nick Young is top-two in this rookie class?), you'd think Gilbert would run out of material at some point, but Men's Journal got him for a pretty brief one-page "Exit Interview" on the back page this month, and wouldn't you know, he rewarded that magazine with at least three things that probably deserve separate entries. Maybe four. Ok, maybe five. In no order.
* When asked about his favorite drink, Gil says this:
"I order a Corona and a Shirley Temple, then mix them 50-50 in an extra glass. I've been doing it for about a year now. It tastes like a sweet Corona. I call it the Agent Zero."
* When asked about the worst physical pain he's ever experienced, Gil gives an answer, after the jump, that is possibly offensive and will almost definitely make you cringe:
"When I was new in the NBA the team veterans convinced me to shave, you know, down there, because they said the hair stinks. I used my girlfriend's razor, which was rusty and gave me keloids. The doctor prescribed medicine to dab on, but I just poured it all over. Three days later I woke up screaming. The skin was burnt off my scrotum, down to my crack, everything -- just raw flesh. I still had to run and play, so I used a numbing spray for a month until it healed. Now I use clippers."
* And when asked about his favorite place on earth, Gil says this:
"I'm building it right now in my backyard: a replica of Hugh Hefner's pool, only a little better. It has a grotto and everything, but with flatscreen TVs, a kitchen and a bathroom. No bunnies."
