Greg, thanks for talking to German Hoops. It has been almost two years since our season ending interview when you were a member the Niners Chemnitz. Has time flown by since then?
You are welcome Miles. Thanks for reaching out to me for the interview. Yes the time has flown by since we last spoke. As in this business, time does go by fast as your in the seasons.
Before we get back to this season, lets go back briefly to last season where you played in Israel and Argentina. You played only 15 games in total. Was it on the court a season to forget, but memorable off the court as you witnessed two new cultures as you added countries 6 and 7 to your resume in your professional career?
Yes, The Israel second league is a good league. I was there from August to Februry, and then parted ways to sign with a previous powerhouse team in Argentina. Although, both situations at the time was not the best situations for me, that´s why so less games, but I still managed to finish the season off back in Finland, a familiar place for me. It was a blessing to be able to be in Israel to experience all of the biblical historical things that are there. It was definitely a great experience and time there. In Argentina, it was nice there also. The weather was similar to Israel, because I was located in one of the hottest spots in the country. So it made it nicer because of the good weather and being similar to my prior location. Outside of basketball for both countries were great situations. On the court, it was really great competition and leagues, but as an individual, it was not the best fit for me on the teams.
