Interview with Coach Ronen Ginzburg - Jun 6, 2013

Originally joining CEZ Basketball Nymburk in 2006-07 as an Assistant Coach under Muli Katzurin (agency: Avi Zilberman ), Ronen Ginzburg has been part of one of the most historic runs in recent European basketball history. Head Coach for the past three seasons Ginzburg just piloted his squad to their 10th consecutive Czech league title, defeating BK Prostejov 3-0 in an abridged Finals series last week. Now after seven years of extraordinary success both in the Czech NBL as well as internationally in Eurocup, Adriatic League and VTB United League competitions, Ginzburg is moving on, leaving his position at CEZ Basketball Nymburk to take the next step in his coaching career. The Israeli native spent some time to speak with about his time in Nymburk and what he will remember and take away from his time with the undisputed kings of Czech Basketball.

Q. After leading CEZ Basketball Nymburk to a remarkable 10th consecutive NBL title, why leave now?
A. After spending the most challenging years of my life in Nymburk with great achievement in Europe, I have decided to move on to the next stage of my career. I think it is beneficial for both sides.

Q. Being with CEZ Basketball Nymburk for seven seasons, four as an assistant and now the last three as head coach, what has been the most memorable part of your time here and what lessons learned will you take away as you continue your career?
A. It is very difficult to point to a specific moment because I enjoyed nearly every day here, but still the greatest moment would have to be defeating CSKA Moscow (2012, VTB United League), when 10,000 people went crazy and cheered for us. Also the win against Bilbao this year was very memorable. I am taking with me for the future the belief that the quality of good people and commitment can lead you forwards towards great success.

Q. I think when people read or hear about the repeated success of Nymburk they assume that the winning comes easy or is because the league is not competitive. But, you being there for the past seven seasons, tell me how hard and how much more work did it take to keep the team constantly focused on the task at hand which at the end of the day was defending your title?
A. From the outside it ma look easy, but we were confronted with a lot of pressure during the season because we played three times a week and our opponents in the NBL did not. We were the team with something to lose. I think that in Czech league play we faced several good teams during the season, but we came to every game focused to win.

Q. Over the past several seasons Nymburk has gained notoriety across European basketball by their competitive showings in Eurocup, Adriatic League and VTB United League competitions. In 2012 the team nearly played an entire NBA 82 game schedule (when you combine all of the competitions), which is unheard of in European basketball. Of all the competitions the team took part in, which was the most challenging and for you personally, was one or another most rewarding to compete in?
A. Like you said its unheard of to play three times a week in Europe. It was a great experience for me to compete in such high levels of competition. I think that the Eurocup and VTB United leagues where the most challenging.

Q. Despite Nymburk's incredible consistency over the past decade, the team did go through a lot of roster turnover each year. Whether it was changing import players or seeing mainstays like Pavel Pumprla go abroad, the club maintained its consistent winning ways. What was your main focus when assembling the team each season and then getting them to be such a cohesive group right from the start?
A. This is the problem of small, successful teams; that the players go to bigger money clubs. So, every year we start from the beginning, but most of the years we have the top domestic players which help us to get the new players fit into our system. It was always the task of players, coaches and spirit of the Nymburk organization.

Q. As you move on in your career, what are some of the missed opportunities you would go back and hope to change? Barely missing out on qualifying for the Euroleague regular season?
A. I don't think that we missed some target. During the years we achieved the goals that we aimed for. Of course we were disappointed after we lost in the qualification stage for the Euroleague regular season, but it wasn't our goal and I am not sure that the club was ready to play in Euroleague in 2012.

Q. Prior to joining CEZ Basketball Nymburk you spent several seasons at home coaching in both the Israeli National and Premier leagues. What led you to decide that coming to the Czech Republic, as an assistant, was the right career choice?
A. I think it was a great decision from my side. I fulfilled my dream of coaching in Europe. I was lucky enough to work with Muli (Katzurin) and to work in a professionally organized club like Nymburk.

Q. Finally, as a parting message to the fans of CEZ Basketball Nymburk and the Mattoni NBL, what would you like to say to the fans and how would you like them to remember "Neno" Ginzburg?
A. I came to Nymburk 7 years ago with Muli and Nymburk was a small club on the European level. I leave Nymburk now when Nymburk is on the cusp of the Euroleague; I feel proud about my achievements.
I would like to thank a few people who have helped make my time at Nymburk as successful as it has been;
I give thanks to Muli who chose me to be on his staff back in 2006.
I want to thank my assistant for the last 3 years Oren Amiel who did a great job.
Thanks to all of the staff in Nymburk and the management which showed faith in me as Head Coach.
And of course, to thank all of the fans, who probably had the hardest job, traveling with us throughout Europe to support the club no matter where we went to play.
