Brice Johnson interview on Grayson Allen.

In anticipation of tonight's NBA Draft, North Carolina forward Brice Johnson did a feature for The Player's Tribune about his time playing for the Tar Heels.

Johnson also took part in a quick version of the always-fun "First Thing That Pops" game, where you're given a word or topic and asked to immediately say the first thing that pops into your mind. Johnson was asked about the NBA city he's most excited to play in (New York), the player he most wants to play with (CP3) and other topics, but he saved the best for last when discussing UNC's top rival.

When given the word Duke, Johnson responds by saying how he gave them 19 and 21 in Cameron (it was actually 18), and referring to Blue Devil star Grayson Allen, Johnson said he "likes to trip people."

Johnson is of course referring to Allen's controversial "trips" of players from Louisville and Florida State last season. Duke fans probably won't enjoy hearing his interview.
