Sooner great feeling at home in San Antonio



Q: What did you learn at OU that helps you today with the Stars?

A: It’s a lot about body language. Obviously I’m an aggressive player. I have a lot of emotions and stuff like that. Coach (Sherri) Coale helped me a lot to figure that out: When to be really passionate and when to calm it down, because the team is always looking at you. I knew I couldn’t come in here screaming at veteran players. She helped me figure out my emotions.

Q: What do you miss most about Oklahoma?

A: I miss everything about it. Honestly, it was probably the best four years that I’ve had away from home. I really grew up out there. I had amazing friends, great teammates, great coaches. The fans were amazing. You can tell when we’re in Tulsa, they all come out. It’s incredible the support that we have. I get tweets (@justDROB) every day. I miss everything about it. Even from the academic standpoint, our professors were amazing. The atmosphere of Norman is incredible.

Q: How would you describe San Antonio?

A: It is bigger, but I think it has the same feel. To me it’s not that quick of a pace. Obviously, I’m from California. It’s a different transition. But everything is really spread out here. In Norman, there are a couple of main streets and everybody knows everybody. It wasn’t a bad transition for me once I figured out how to get from the apartments. I think it’s still the same feel as the support (at OU).


Q: How tough is it to watch the Spurs and Thunder play in the conference finals?

A: I have to root for the Spurs. I just really enjoy watching them. I like to watch Patty (Mills) and Tony (Parker) play. It’s definitely hard because when I was in Oklahoma, I went to all the Thunder games and I supported them. This is home now.
