TENNESSEE GUARD SEMEKA RANDALL IS IN OUR HOT SEAT
WNBA.com Asks the Tough Questions
Q: It is the year 2017 and the WNBA and NBA are now a co-ed league. You just graduated from Tennessee and Ray Allen just graduated from Connecticut, and you both are being considered for the No. 1 spot. Tell me why you should be the No. 1 pick over Ray in the new co-ed NBA.
Randall: Women bring so much fun and enthusiasm to the game, Ray may be able to hit a few shots here and there, but the females can get you pumped up and riled up in the game, and hit the shots.
Q: Let's say the WNBA just changed the uniforms to resemble the uniforms the Australian National Team plays in -- would you decide not to go into the league?
Randall: Oh no. See ... I wouldn't do that. I am not going out like that.
Q: In the movie A League of Their Own, in an effort to get fans into women's baseball, they would give a kiss to the person who catches a foul ball. Would you kiss a fan every time you fouled someone?
Randall: Sure I would do it ... if Vince Carter, my boyfriend Tony and my momma were in the stands, I would kiss them. You can't just kiss up on every body -- you don't know where everybody's lips have been and if they brush their teeth.
Randall: I would lose my hearing 'cause I like to tune people out anyway. The second one is my sight 'cause I don't have to see anyone I don't want to see. So I don't have to hear anyone's mess. I would just sit and twiddle my thumbs and sing ... I can't sing but it doesn't matter 'cause I won't be able to hear it anyway.
Randall: I guess goober. Ya see, you can't really define goober -- we are an odd breed. We are a mix of silly and a little goofy ... We just make you laugh and have a good time. Every time you see us, we put a smile on your face.
Q: Would you rather increase your IQ by forty points or your game by forty points?
Randall: Well, since this is the next level and you want to be the best you can be, I want to increase my game. We can wait till the offseason to increase my IQ -- I have nine months for that.
Randall: Every year?!? I would do it. I would give some to charity and my momma and my dog Scrappy -- because he needs dog food and a nice little house and a platinum dog collar and he would be at the spa every day chilling.
Q: Would you be a member of Destiny's Child knowing that you would be kicked out in a few months?
Randall: I would be there and I would just use that as a starting point for me to do my own thing ... 'cause the club is jumpin' jumpin'!
