Q: You were born and raised in Sweden, what was it like growing up in a place so different from small-town Corvallis, Ore.?
A: The biggest difference is how they treat us with sports. Back home, nobody cares about me being a basketball player. But I felt like when I came here, I’m all of a sudden somebody important to people. So I’m not used to that yet, I see myself as everybody else.
Q: Sweden has beautiful people, blondes or brunettes?
Q: A very romantic holiday is [today], Valentine’s Day, do you celebrate it in Sweden?
A: Yes, we have Valentine’s Day too. We celebrate it the same way as here.
Q: What’s your perfect date?
A: Well, I don’t believe that there’s such a thing as a “perfect date,” but definitely a perfect couple. But if I had to pick a perfect date, we would go out to dinner, just me and her, talk about everything. But the most important part is when you get home that you get together with your girl. You set the mood with candles and let her know what’s important with you two.
Q: Have you ever been on a date where you wanted to get up and leave?
A: No. I mean of course I haven’t always clicked with everybody, but I don’t feel that any girl I’ve gone out with is a dumb girl or ugly girl, everybody’s beautiful in their own single way.
Q: Do you have a valentine on this Valentine’s Day?
A: I do not.
Q: So how will you celebrate? Alone?
A: Well, we’re traveling, so I have my teammates.
