Team interviews are one of the central components of the NBA Draft process.

It's where NBA executives and coaches can get a feel for the type of person each NBA prospect is before drafting them.

As Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey revealed yesterday in a series of fantastic tweets, sometimes these 19 and-20 year-olds don't give the best answers in job interviews.

Morey says these are questions and answer exchanges from past NBA Drafts:

Do you lead by example or verbally? "I lead verbally, not by example."

— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) May 20, 2014

Did you have any issues with your coach? "Coach and I did not see eye to eye." On what? "Playing time." What else? "He was shorter."

Why do you like rebounding? "I can't do anything without the ball so when I don't have it I have to go get it!"

Which foot did you hurt? "I have been telling people my right foot"

— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) May 20, 2014

Did you have any issues with your coach? "He didn't like when I took early shots." What about when they went in? "Then he liked them."

— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) May 20, 2014

Will sign off with best answer of all time that I tweeted last year as well: Can you pass a drug test? "Today?!?"
