Interview with Paul Shirley - Jul 17, 2013

Paul Shirley
Tell us how you decided to become professional basketball player.

I decided that I wanted to play professional basketball sometime around age 12. But I have a feeling that many other people made that same decision. The truth is that others decided if I could be a professional basketball player, based on whether I was good enough, or whether I fit a need they had, or whether I'd ever looked at them funny. I really, really wanted to play basketball for money someday, but it took an incredible number of breaks for that to ever happen.


Your first team in Europe was Panionios from Greece, what you remember most from that period?

For better or worse, what I remember most is the fact that the team paid me only half of what it was supposed to. I enjoyed immensely my time in Greece - the people were warm and friendly, the food was better than I could have imagined, and the lifestyle was delightful. But, as we all now know, at that time it wasn't a place friendly to those who believed in things like binding contracts.


You played in Greece, Spain and Russia. Which country you enjoyed most to live in and which one to play?

I can tell you that I enjoyed Russia the least, but that's only because I felt like I might disappear at any moment.
I'm partial to Spain. Some of that bias could be because it's far easier to learn Spanish than Greek (or Russian), and some of it because I spent more time in Spain than in every other country. But I also think that there's something about Spain, for me at least: some combination of optimism and pessimism that results in exactly the right approach to life, which consists of a healthy skepticism toward authority, devotion to family, and naps.

Do you have still contact with any of your former teammates? What they are doing now?

As has been well-documented (mostly by me), I don't get along all that well with the typical basketball player. That discontent with my colleagues was far worse in America, but it wasn't entirely absent in Europe; I could never understand players who thought about nothing but basketball. However, I did find some gems along the way, and boy were they good folks - people like Chris Anstey, Nenad Markovic, Zan Tabak, Chris Moss, Jeff Nordgaard, Javier Mendiburu, Carlos Cazorla, and Carlos Jimenez.


Tell us few words about your life now? What about your plans and your new job?

I call myself a writer, but that's often hard to say. I just finished my second book, which is a novel about the end of a journeyman American's professional basketball career. (Write what you know, as they say.) I run a website for writers called FlipCollective, I write a weekly column about the NBA for El Pais (during the season), and I run an e-magazine named Cartel. Much of my most well-known writing has to do with basketball, but if, like in my basketball career, others deem my work worthy of their attention, that won't always be the case.

A1 Round 3 of Play-Offs. AGOR overcome Kolossos to advance - 2 days ago
AGOR - Kolossos HH 69-55 AGOR advanced into quarterfinal stage. They overcame Kolossos in the decider. The game was mostly controlled by AGOR. Kolossos HH managed to win second period 23-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a good game for forward Haralampos Giannopoulos (200-89) who led his team to a victory with 20 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo's 30 points make him top Greek player abroad of the week - 2 days ago
We bring you last week's top performances from Greeks who are playing abroad and who all have had prior experience of national team duties at youth or senior level. This week's number one is an international swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo (211-94, agency: Octagon Europe). He could not help the Milwaukee Bucks (42-40) in their last game. Despite Antetokounmpo's very good performance the Milwaukee Bucks (42-40) were crushed 118-93 on the road by the Toronto Raptors.    [read more]
