Boiler Bits: JaJuan Johnson

Junior center JaJuan Johnson took time before Monday's practice to answer some random questions.

If you could have a super power, what would it be? I would like to fly.

That'd be scary with your wingspan. (laughs)

What was your favorite toy as a kid? I was a big fan of Batman, so anything Batman.

You don't have like a Batman tattoo or anything, do you? No, no.

I did notice you had earrings in the other day. Yeah.

Were they (little diamond studs) real? Yeah. (But) Those are super small. So that doesn't count right now. (laughs)

Is there a TV show you can't miss? Right now, I like "The Cleveland Show."

Spin-off of "Family Guy." So you watch "Family Guy" still? Yeah, I still watch "Family Guy," but "The Cleveland Show" I've been trying to watch every Sunday when it comes on.

Would you be a good reality TV star? I don't think so. I couldn't do that stuff just because I'd be scared to see who's watching.

What about the talent show one? Do you have a hidden talent? I have no hidden talents. It's just basketball.

Any weird dreams lately? Recently, it was kind of like I was watching like a horror, mystery type movie thing. But I wasn't really in it. I was just watching everything take place and how they solved the mystery. I thought that was kind of weird.

What's your motivation in life? Just wanting to be successful. My family, mostly my mom, motivates me to do better. I have to do something with my life. Being this tall and not doing anything in your life, it would be bad. (laughs)

What's a trait that defines you? Hard working. My whole life it seems like I've always had to really work for things that I really wanted to accomplish.

You're on a road trip and stop to get gas. What snacks do you buy? Always grab some chips.

What kind of chips? That's vague. Yeah, that is vague. I like Doritos. Get some Sour Gummi Worms and some Skittles.

What's the beverage choice? Just Gatorade. I always drink Gatorade.

Any specific flavor? Orange or Strawberry.
