Brandon Shingles: Floor General and 'not your typical American player' - Jul 24, 2013


POSTED BY:

Shingles
"Brandon is not your typical American player who only wants to score. He makes each of his teammates better", Marco Klingberg (185-G/F-74) once said about Brandon Shingles (191-G-87, college: Morehead St.) in an articles published by local newspaper Mitteldeutsche Zeitung. Klingberg knows what he is talking about. Shingles was his teammate in Aschersleben and Magdeburg, Klingberg enjoyed a career in the BBL, 2. Bundesliga and Regionalliga that lasted more than a decade, he played with and against plenty of American athletes.

In an attempt to characterize Shingles' game, descriptions like "floor general" and "pass first point guard" come into play. In his two years at NCAA D1 school Morehead State his assist production and leadership guided the Eagles to back-to-back winning seasons. In his post-college career he was asked to take on a greater scoring load and he delivered. "It's important, but its not my main priority. Winning is the ultimate goal", Shingles said. "So far, being a true point guard throughout has gotten me to this point of my career. Scoring has never been a problem for me, and I continue to expand that aspect of my game, but my job as a point guard is to help get my teammates the ball when and where they need it."

In college many of his passes found the hands of Kenneth Faried (203-F-89, college: Morehead St.), now a workhorse for the Denver Nuggets in the NBA. "It doesnt surprise me at all", Shingles said about how quickly his former teammate has become a key player on an NBA squad, "I always knew he would be in the league. Even more, I knew once he got to show off his entire skill set that he would be a household name almost instantly."

The Albany, Georgia native joined the Aschersleben Tigers for his first season overseas in 2010, followed by stints in the British Basketball League, Magdeburg and most recently Kosovo. "I was called for the second half of the season to KB Drita", the 26-year-old said about his Kosovo spell and added: "They were on the verge of being out of the top league, and my team managed to pull them right back into it. I learned a lot from a professional aspect during my time there. I averaged a solid 13 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds a game."
The club, located in the city of Gjilan close to the Serbian border, eventually finished the season sixth in the 8-team SuperLeague. "Kosovo was not nearly as rough as the most of the US population perceives it", Shingles said. "The people there really appreciate Americans, and they are truly passionate about basketball. The fans were always screaming, jumping, and cheering: win or lose. As a player, we all thrive in that type of atmosphere."

Looking at the upcoming season, Shingles wouldn't mind heading back to Germany to pick up where he left off. In the 2011-12 campaign he averaged 16.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2 steals per game for the Magdeburg Eagles. In his first season in Germany, Shingles had led Aschersleben to the 2. Regionalliga championship title and made the transition from college to pro seamlessly. "First of all, I had a great first year in Aschersleben. I was blessed with the teammates, coaches, staff, and fans", he told Eurobasket.com. "The adjustments I had to make were minor adjustments: footwork, regulations, and most of all the pick and roll and how to use it more affectively. I give all the credit to my coach, Nandor Kovacs, for all the time and knowledge he shared in developing me." After only a couple of team practices Coach Kovavcs knew about Shingles' ability to create, his passion for the game and his scoring skills. Other coaches might not be aware, but he wants to change it. "To make my skeptics into believers", Shingles said about his plans for the 2013-14 season, "I want to prove that I am capable of competing on a high level, time and time again."

The man who fed Faried the ball for thunderous dunks and easy lay-ups at Morehead State recently returned to his alma mater to help the NBA star put on a camp. It has been only one stop during a busy summer. "I have been spending time every day polishing my skills, and expanding my all-around game. I have also been working at numerous basketball camps including 5-Star Basketball Camp. I love the game, and I have a real passion for helping the youth work on their craft."
