When asked what his favorite thing is about The Palazzo Las Vegas, Chauncey said “Lagasse’s Stadium. It’s a great place to come hang out and watch games. Sunday is always a great day, as they have all of the football games on throughout the day. It’s just a great atmosphere. My favorite dish is Emeril’s New Orleans BBQ Shrimp.”

Remarking on whether or not he thinks Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian’s marriage will last, Chauncey noted “I hope it does. Any union like that, I hope it lasts.”

Commenting on what it feels like to be the first overall draft by The Wizards in 2010, Wall said, “It’s a blessing. It’s a dream come true to this day. I went through a lot of bumps and bruises to get to where I’m at today- nothing came easy.”

When asked if he would ever compete on Dancing with the Stars, Wall said “I might be down in the future. I watched an episode the other day and it’s a great show. It’s just great for athletes to see what dancing skills they have.”
