Then, I was playing in Toronto, 2005-6.
00:09
Bought this really ignorant chain
00:10
with a bunch of diamonds and it was just stupid.
00:13
It was a really stupid chain.
00:14
It was a waste of money.
00:17
[hip hop beats]
00:19
Sup GQ?
00:20
This is P.J. Tucker, and these are my essentials.
00:24
So, this is my Goyard carryall.
00:27
This is essential for me daily, put all my stuff in it.
00:30
Plane's probably the number one place I'll take it,
00:32
just 'cause it literally has everything
00:33
from my sneakers, to iPad, to you know, my phone chargers,
00:39
everything, so it's a daily user.
00:41
It's always with me.
00:42
I always got some eye wear.
00:44
It's sunny all the time.
00:45
Getting off the plane, traveling.
00:47
These Tom Fords are my favorite right now.
00:50
It's like rose gold cargo.
00:52
I like them, they're stylish,
00:53
but they also work for me on daily use so.
00:57
Especially getting off planes.
01:02
[laughing]
01:06
So, this is Cartier love bracelet.
01:09
Just one of those accessories that I just always have on me.
01:12
So, for me it's essential
01:13
because I wear it every single day.
01:14
[laughs]
01:16
You know, it's one of my more flashier pieces,
01:18
but it's pretty cool.
01:20
So we got the Audemars there,
01:22
probably one of my favorite watches.
01:23
I'm a watch guy, I wear watches every day.
01:25
Just clean, simple, you know it's just a elegant piece.
01:29
My watch collection does not stack up with the league.
01:34
James Harden's collection is pretty sick.
01:36
[laughs]
01:38
He just got into watches and his collection is pretty sick.
01:40
This is my cross that I literally wear every single day.
01:43
I don't take it off.
01:44
Only when I play basketball.
01:45
I like it.
01:46
It's clean.
01:47
It's really cool, but it's just something I'll always
01:49
have on me, so it's always essential.
01:51
One time I did have it on in a game,
01:52
I forgot to take it off.
01:54
That's how much I have it on, though,
01:55
so I like literally just don't tell when it's not on.
01:59
So this is probably the number one essential
02:01
of all essentials for me.
02:02
A fanny, this is funny.
02:03
They probably came back in style, fanny packs,
02:07
but now I couldn't imagine not having it.
02:09
I literally keep everything in my fanny pack
02:11
from phone chargers to ear pods to you name it.
02:16
Cash, cards, everything.
02:18
It's just easy.
02:20
So obviously I wouldn't be me if my essential wasn't shoes.
02:23
[laughs]
02:24
These are my Urchin Rocks.
02:26
I just got these.
02:27
Giuseppe made me these, one on one.
02:30
For some reason I like all red shoes all the time,
02:32
but it was a idea I had after I designed the Rockets
02:35
color way for the team.
02:36
When I started to do mine,
02:37
It was right away I knew,
02:39
with the design of the shoe, I thought it would look
02:40
really cool in like a red, but not just all red,
02:43
but it's the materials, I don't know if you can really see
02:46
between the suede, the zippers, the leather on the zippers,
02:50
like python, suede, really cool.
02:56
[Asian hip hop]
02:59
So I guess I wouldn't be me if I didn't do an on-court shoe
03:02
as well, and then since I'll probably wear these soon,
03:04
I figure I'd do these Undefeated Kobe One.
03:07
One of my favorite color ways of any shoe,
03:10
on one of my favorite shoes, but honestly,
03:13
an on-court shoe is definitely in my essentials,
03:15
because it's what I do.
03:16
Pretty rare Kobe find, purple, purple with the white.
03:20
Really dope, so, excited to wear these on the court.
03:27
The on-court rule?
03:28
On-court rule never really affected me.
03:29
I've always kinda just worn what I wanted to anyways,
03:31
so, you know, I'll get fined and warnings and stuff,
03:34
but, you know, I kinda just always did my own thing,
03:37
and but I like that they did it though,
03:38
because now everybody's just wearing whatever they want.
03:41
It's just showing people's personality.
03:43
You know, their originality, you know.
03:45
I think it's good for the game.
03:47
[electronic hip hop] Another essential.
03:49
It's always in my bag.
03:51
Candles.
03:52
I'm a big candle guy.
03:53
On the road, living in hotels, literally,
03:56
I like to have my own smells in my hotel room,
03:59
so this one just so happened to be my guy Nick Fouquet.
04:02
Candles.
04:02
Gotta have candles.
04:08
Hat box.
04:10
I'm a big hat guy.
04:11
Wear a lot of hats, so I always, you see me traveling,
04:15
you'll probably see me with a hat box because I only brought
04:17
a hat for our event or something.
04:19
Just to keep the brim together.
04:20
It's hard to travel with a hat if it's not on your head,
04:22
so you just keep it safe, make sure when it's in the
04:25
overhead compartment it stays together.
04:28
Yeah, so this is what he just did for me.
04:31
It's kind of dope.
04:32
All of 'em are different.
04:34
He just like, freestyles and makes my style,
04:36
so it's kinda cool.
04:37
Hardware.
04:40
Suit fabric on the inside.
04:43
Like made to measure for your head, too, so,
04:45
it's perfect.
04:49
When I think of the word essential,
04:51
this is essential for me,
04:53
my moisturizer.
04:55
I use it two, three times a day.
04:57
With this, my hands are always moisturized,
04:59
so it's easier to handle the ball, to hold the ball,
05:02
because the NBA ball is like a leather,
05:03
like, your hands gotta be moisturized to be able to grip
05:05
the ball, or the ball's really slick.
05:07
This is my girl Crystal, she's actually, her stuff,
05:11
she makes it.
05:12
She's the best.
05:13
She does my facials, so [laughs] it's her stuff.
05:16
And it's wonderful, it's the best.
05:18
Crystal, you gotta pay me for that plug, too.
05:19
Ugh.
05:21
Thanks for watching.
05:21
This has been my essentials.
