We at Liberty Ballers love getting ideas from you guys via the e-mails. Like Adam Aron, we read every tweet or e-mail and respond with extreme optimism and pat-ourselves-on-the-backism. Recently, one of our dozens of readers, Eric DeBerardinis (I only had to look at his name 5 times to make sure I had it spelled right), sent us an interview he recently did for his NBA radio show at Penn State University with Sports Illustrated writer Lee Jenkins.

For those of you who don't know, Jenkins is the guy who wrote the piece that was in SI a couple weeks ago (give it a read here). In the interview, Jenkins addresses how the article came about (much earlier than you might have anticipated), Andre Iguodala's demeanor, and one thing that was left out of the final version that he found interesting (hint: it's about Doug Collins and waking up at 4:00 AM).

Many thanks to our good friend Eric (@EJDpsu for our Twitter fans) for sending this audio along. His weekly NBA radio show "The Association" airs every Friday at 2:30 PM on ComRadio, the campus radio station at PSU. I believe you can also give it a listen on the PSU ComRadio website.

Hit the jump to listen to the interview.
