You are playing your first season for TBB Trier. How do you like it so far?

I love it here. I love the city, enjoy the people and the TBB Trier organization. The organization really takes care of all the things off the court which makes it easier to concentrate on basketball

Trier is a beautiful area. What are the biggest geographical differences to Stone mountain, Georgia?

I think it is colder in Trier and there are more hills here. In Atlanta is very flat and also no body of water. In Trier there is the river.


You played three seasons in Japan. What was the biggest transition that you had to do coming to the Beko BBL?

Just the style of basketball. In Japan there is more isolation and more like the NBA and team orientated. But I have to say that I have enjoyed my time in the German league and it has been a good experience for me.

Is defense before offense in Trier a mentality that you could become friends with?

Yes I got used to it early. Coach Rodl stressed at the start of the season. We have many great athletes that can play multiple positions and because of that we can do so much on defense. The more defensive stops that we get the better chance we have to win.

What do you like most about the coaching style of Henrik Rodl?

He is a tremendous coach. I like how he is able to relate to his players and is able to get his point across. He is a players coach. He knows exactly what he needs to get out of his players. I really enjoy playing for him.

What is the secret of the early success of the TBB Trier?

I dont think that there is really any secret. We just give very much effort and put in a lot of hardwork. Every guy just wants to sacrifice his body to play defense. Coach has a good scheme and all the players abide by it.

You can play the 3 and 4 position. How much fun is it to play with American Nate Linhart? How do you guys compliment each other best on the court?

Linhart is a great player. He has a great knack for playing defense and getting steals and being in the right place. We both can play multiple positions. We both understand what each guy does which gives us so much more room to do things. If one of us makes a mistake then the other guy picks up the slack.

Who has been the unsung TBB Trier player so far?

Jarrett Howell has been our unsung hero. I dont think he gets the credit that he deserves. He is our floor general and gets everybody going and makes sure that everybody is in the right place.

You have very skinny legs. What were common names that people called you?

I never really heard any names.

Not even chicken legs?

No not that either or at least not to my face.


A hidden strength in your game is your shot blocking. Who was your role model defender?

Scottie Pippen was because of his determination and tenacity to be able to guard all players.

You leave many players behind you when you penetrate with your quick first step. Do you hear trash talking on the court?

Every now and then, because everybody on the court is competitive, but usually not. The Beko BBL is very professional and everybody is very focused on doing their job.

Vitalis Chicoko is a very athletic player. What has been the most amazing thing that you have seen him do?

He is super athletic. He reminds me a lot of me. He can play many different positions and can do so much. I think the most amazing thing that I have seen him do is just the way he uses his long legs. He has grabbed some rebounds that I never would of thought that he could of reached.

Who was your NBA idol as kid?

Kevin Garnett was always my favorite player. I liked his intensity and how hard he played. I never saw him not play hard.


What was your nicest memory at Paine?

Getting player of the year and reaching the conference final.

Your toughest opponent in the NCAA was Cuxhaven American Monya Pratt. What made it so difficult to play against him?

He was one of those players where you knew that he could play. He was just a very tough player and we had many nice battles against each other in college.


What was your biggest advantage being an American in Japan where you played three years?

That I was taller than everyone else.


What is still missing from your ex teammate Devin Searcy to reach the NBA who played shortly with the 76ers?

Nothing is missing. He is very young and will be in the NBA. It is just a matter of time.

What NCAA story would you like to hear from Henrik Rodl from his time at North Carolina?

I asked him how it felt playing at a stage like that where you were always expected to win.


What were the most free throws that you made in a row without missing?

50.

What was your most crazy shot in your career?

I hit two full court shots once with a swish and the other a bank shot using one hand like a football quarterback.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

End of watch. A great football movie.


Thanks Brian for the chat.
