OFF THE COURT I heard that you are very passionate about dogs. Tell me why and about your support? JI: I just love dogs! I donate to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA, every single year. Our family has always had dogs. Dogs are cooler than people. Would you say, less complicated than humans [laughs]? JI: In large parts, but I don't know. I'm not different than anyone else that loves dogs. They're just so much fun to be around, and I like cats too as well. Yeah, I was wondering about cats, too! JI: Yeah, I do. I just love animals. They play such an important role in our lives nowadays. They do so many incredible things. They bring so much joy to people and they certainly bring joy to me. Do you support anything else, besides ASPCA? I know that your mother had cancer and that she's a survivor. JI: Yeah, I've done a charity event for years that has donated the proceeds to UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Centre in North Carolina ( in Chapel Hill hospital, where my mom was treated. They have the greatest doctors in the world. She was fortunate to be so close to there when she came down with colon cancer. You know, I think it's very important to give back, of course. The cancer hit so close to home with me and with my family. And those doctors, I've said it a bunch, they saved her life. We are indeed lucky to have such great treatment so close to us.
