David Tairu
Interview:

What a beautiful story. It's the story of the love of the game of David Tairu (191-G-86, agency: INVICTUS Sports Group, college: Texas Tech), who decided to live his daydream to be a professional basketball player together with his strong Faith and with the positiviness that gives him the correct attitude day after day in everything he does. After playing the last two years at Texas Tech University, he was at the point to understand which direction to give to his playing career. He started the season in the NBL Canada with the Moncton Miracles having but without enough space, then at the beginning of January he showed his best skills in the UBA League with the Cleveland Havok (23.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 20.0 of evaluation on the average in 6 games) but the value of the league could not be enough to put his name on the basketball worldwide map. And so, one day he was told by someone about a new basketball professional camp, INVICTUS USA Camp, that was going to start at the half of January in Las Vegas and New York, realized by a former European player called Zoran Savic, now president of the basketball management agency INVICTUS Sports Group. It was something different from a normal camp, because they were promising to the best selected player a professional contract to go playing in Europe... And so, David Tairu decided to participate. He was the best one of the three days run in Las Vegas, Nevada, a week later he joined the agency as new represented player, and in two weeks he signed a contract until the end of the 2012/2013 season for BC Kavala, Greece. So we come to the present, that sees David surprise everyone game after game: until now he has played 3 games in the Balkan League, averaging 15.7 points (66.7% from 2pt, 33.3% from 3pt and 85.7% from free-throws) more 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 15.7 of personal evaluation in 25' per game, and 3 games in the Esake A1 Greek League averaging 10.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 8.3 of personal evaluation in 24' per game. Most of all, he has immediately conquered everyone for his great attitude and character, and he practice and play day after day with the heart, as well as everyday he is grateful to God for everything he has got.

David, you participated to INVICTUS USA Camp and you got the real chance to start a new career in Europe... How did it go?
"Yes, that's exactly what happened. I decided to participate to INVICTUS USA Camp in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I got to meet Zoran Savic for the first time. It's a kind of a funny story on how I came to the camp: I got a random e-mail from a guy who told me about the camp and that I should come to it. I didn't know anything about it, as well as I didn't know Zoran Savic at the time. We talked back and fourth for about two days before I decided to participate in the camp. I had every intention to come back to Europe to play but I didn't know anybody who could help me, so I had nothing to lose to go to the camp. I went there out of pure Faith and going to the camp was one of the best decisions of my life. I am very grateful for it".

And so you got the chance to sign a professional contract in Greece, for BC Kavala, where you immediately has made yourself be appreciated by everyone...
"The coaching staff and my teammates welcomed me with open arms. They make me feel comfortable to play my game, and when you have a coach who is on your side you will do great things. I am very grateful to be in this position. I always remember that hardwork still has to be done".

Do you think Europe could represent the future for your professional career, or your ambition is to come back playing in the United States?
"I really think that Europe will be it for me, I mean it would be great to go back and play in the United States, but I am really enjoying my time here in Europe and appreciating everything I have the opportunity to live both on and off the basketball court".

Looking behind you, what about the two years spent at Texas Tech University, coached by Pat Knight but also going in touch with his father Bob?
"I really learned a lot from the Knight family, they taught me a lot about playing the game of basketball especially Bob Knight. He would challenge me in practice to make me think more instead of just relying on my talent. I learned a lot about using pump fakes and spacing on the floor".

You have a double USA and Nigerian passport, is it about the origins of your family?
"My family is from Nigeria but I was born in the United States, I still have a lot of family back in Nigeria. I never been to Nigeria yet but I will go someday to visit the rest of my family. We talk on the phone a lot but I never made a visit yet".

What you like the most in playing basketball? And what about being a professional player for you?
"What I like the most about playing basketball is the competition and teamwork. Competition makes the best come out of you and it challenges you to go beyond the norms. What I like the most about being a professional besides being paid for doing what you love, it is that you travel to different countries and you get to see different cultures".

You played in USA, Canada, Iceland, Dubai, Qatar, now Greece: where did you find the highest level until now if you can make a comparison?
"The highest level of competition by far is Greece. The Greek League is very tough, everybody here can run and jump but you really have to think in this League. Knowing when to make the correct pass or knowing when to shoot a good shot. Its not all about run and gun basketball here in Greece and I really like that".

How you describe yourself as a player? Which do you think are your best qualities and where you have to continue improving?
"I would describe myself as just being a basketball player. I try and do as much as i can on the basketball court. Whether it be block shots or steals or scoring or rebounds. I try to do as much as i can to help a team win. So I would just describe myself as a basketball player. I need to improve more on the pick and roll sometimes I miss the pass or the shot so I am improving on reading the pick and roll".

Which is your daydream to follow? And what to say to Zoran and Goran Savic to join it together?
"My dream would be to play and make a career in the Euroleague and win a Euroleague Championship. I know that to attain that comes a lot of hard work and I am willing to put the work in to get there. Zoran and Goran Savic have definitely been a blessing to me. I am very grateful for all of the help that they are doing and I am very glad to be apart of the INVICTU family!"
