In the Beko BBL in the past there have been teams that have had the luxury of having a trio of players, three amigos or three musketeers however one wants to describe it that have helped their respective teams in special ways, be it in scoring, winning titles or just bringing a team to new heights. In the heyday of the Frankfurt Skyliners glory days, the team had the Bermuda triangle of Americans mr everything Chris Williams, in the corner parked Tyrone Ellis and Skyliner legend Pascal Roller who helped carry the team to the 2004 title and 2005 Beko BBL final. In Paderborn, you had the three musketeers of slick scoring Tim Black who led the Beko BBL in scoring in 2008. The heart and soul of the team Marius Nolte and Mr versatile Steven Esterkamp who helped carry the small town to the Beko BBL in 2006 winning 50 games in a row in the second Bundesliga. This season the Telekom Baskets Bonn have a trio of Americans with three ex NBA Draft picks of Jared Jordan who is the best point guard in the Beko BBL that led the Greece league in assists in 2011 and Beko BBL in 2012 and should be in the NBA now, Patrick Ewing jr who has a name that makes basketball cracks heads turn and could have a private competition with FC Bayern Munich as too which name is more famous in the world in their respective sports or Robert Vaden who can shoot out the lights on any given night and could probably make a swish shot from the top of the Chase tower in Indianapolis if a basket was on the ground. When seeing these three names, one can ask the question if they are the most talented trio of Americans ever to have set foot in Bonn? “Bonn had a good combination of Americans in the last years when you look at guys like ex NBA player Edward Basden, Winsome Frazier or EJ Rowland. Mike Koch always does a good job finding good Americans. Last season he brought in Tony Gaffney. I saw Patrick Ewing play at Georgetown at the NCAA Final 4. He had the skills, but not so much that fluid explosiveness, but that can be at age 22. Big guys often develop later. I was surprised he didn´t land in the NBA. I saw video of him this season and I like how he plays. He plays no real role in the Bonn offense. He lives off his rebounding. He goes there where it hurts. It is hard to say if this is the best group of Americans ever, but they will be a force. Vaden is your typical touch and shoot player. One also can´t forget what Koch has done with German players. He did a good job developing Alex King further. One thought that King would sink after he left the Skyliners, but he developed well in Bonn”, stressed basketball expert Steven Clauss. One Skyliner isn´t about to let a famous name ruffle his feathers. “Ewing is just another opponent. A name is a name”, smiled Zach Peacock.
Since head coach Michael Koch has had free reigns of gobbling up players each new season, his trust in American players and their abilities has been as strong as the Boston Bruins belief that their 2011 Stanley Cup win was no fluke and waiting another 39 years for the next one is out of the question, American singer Rihanna confident that her new album Talk Talk talk with hit single Take A Bow is a track that many people will rap about for years to come or Lindsay Lohan somehow not abruptly disappearing, but continuing to hang around in the news showing her support for legend Marilyn Monroe in her own essay for a new coffee book. In the last six years with 71 players on the roster, Koch has picked 38 Americans. It has been no secret that Michael Koch Has had faith in the Americans the last years as much as Skyliner fans have seeing Quantez Robertson take new athletic and breathtaking lift offs to the basket this season, Bastian Schweinsetiger doing some more trick shots with the basketball, or Dashaun Wood feeding Derrick Allen an ally-op pass, but being rejected from behind at the second from Super Tez Robertson. However after not reaching the playoffs in 2010-2011 for only the second time in their basketball existence, the German coach decided to go in another direction supplementing the roster with only three Americans in 2011-2012 which could give the few Mcdonalds in the Rhine city less business now with less of an influx of Americans playing there. For some Americans going to Mcdonalds is about as regular as Germans going to the beer garden, going to Mallorca for vacation for driving a Volkswagen and sometimes when your in a new country and are shy and see the big yellow arches, one just can´t resist. “I actually only visit Mcdonalds about once a month in Europe, but I think the Americans rather have a greasy Big Mac and French fries then good tasty Wiener Schnitzel”, smiled ex Beko BBL player Steven Wright. With less Americans and players from other countries, there might be an influx to taste the real German classic food. “The Mcdonalds might be down, but the Wiener Schnitzel will be up”, laughed EnBW Ludwigsburg Mark Dorris. Koch had the right feeling last season reaching the Beko BBL playoffs again even if it was on the last game day.
The Telekom Baskets Bonn have been in the playoffs since 1997 almost as often as Allen Iverson said “Practice” in his infamous press conference as the club of coach Michael Koch missed just two times in 2005 and in 2011, but have the cruel distinction of not being able to win the big title losing five finals and two cup finals that brings back memories to the NFL Buffalo Bills of the 90s as they perished in four Superbowl finals. The Telekom Baskets Bonn were BBL finalists in 1997,1999, 2001, 2008 and 2009 and Cup finalists in 2005 and 2009. If you lose one final, try try again and if you lose a second consecutive final try try again, but if you reach a third final then the team has to finally win or forever be classified as the German basketball version of the Buffalo Bills football team that had the distinction of being second way too many times. A Michael Phelps has never worried about being second since he has won 11 gold medals at the Olympics, two bronze medals, but no silver medals before the 2012 Olympics. Being second hurts about as much as catching someone cheating, but in the BBL with guys coming and going, the trademark of always finishing second shouldn´t really effect a team mentally as much as one might think. “I don’t think that it takes a toll on the team. Teams are usually building new teams each year. But with Bonn that has kept a good core of guys from the last years, that should help the team more than hurt it when it comes to winning a title”, added ex Gloria Giants Duesseldorf guard Steven Wright.
However in 2010-2011 was a season to forget for the Telekom Baskets Bonn as they finished in 13th place with a record of 14-20. It is always difficult enough to be known as a team not being able to win a title, but not reaching the playoffs is about as unexpected as Bayern Munich soccer team losing games at the moment with their unbeaten record, Paris Hilton refraining from wearing big sunglasses anywhere as that fetish seems to have returned to her, or Boris Becker ever forgetting what happened in a London hotel closet. Bonn had a very talented team in 2010-2011 with seven Americans and at times were carried in many games by the trio of Nic Wise, Folarian Campbell and Jeremy Hunt that averaged 38 points out of the team total 71 points per game, however the team play just wasn´t consistent enough. “They had some great individual players, but they just didn´t seem to gell”, added ex Phoenix Hagen guard Mark Dorris. Their biggest wins were against BG Goettingen, The EWE Baskets Oldenburg and The Artland Dragons. A big five game winning streak in December helped the team in the first half, but in the second half of the season the team seemed to falter as they finished the season from February to May with a 2-12 record and raised many questions. “I think that they had too many players that wanted to much for themselves than for the team”, remembered ex Tuebingen guard Steven Wright. In those 12 games, the team lost only three games by less than five points and lost the rest pretty easily.
With the misfortune of last year, the club decided to revamp and made a total facelift saying farewell to 10 players. They kept the support and back bone of the team with Beko BBL dinosaur Chris Ensminger and young Germans Fabian Thulig and Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann. The team also kept long time coach Michael Koch who keeps the patience and trust of management and has a contract until 2013. The team brought in versatile power forward Tony Gaffney who has been with the Boston Celtics and Assist magnet Jared Jordan who returns back to the club after a year in Greece to round out the American trio. To help fill the void of new extra Americans, the team got two players from Lithuvania with Simonas Serapinas and Benas Veikalis and Zvonko Buljan. Koch also has trust in Germans Daniel Hain and Andrej Mangold. Koch works now with a 10 man roster and sees his switch from American ball to European ball as positive. “It is easier to integrate Europeans into a team than it is Americans who tend to think I before we”, stressed Michael Koch. This season, the Telekom Baskets started off hot winning their first five games including home games against FC Bayern Munich and the EWE Baskets Oldenburg. Soon after followed a five game losing streak where they lost three homes games in a row. Since then they have been a very up and down team never having more than a three game winning streak. Their biggest wins of the season since Christmas have been home games against Alba Berlin and the Artland Dragons. They were able to sweep the season series with Oldenburg. Their biggest problem has simply been depth. They have a very thin roster and the recent removal of Zvonko Buljan didn´t help their run in the playoffs if they make it. In a do or die game on the last game day, the team kept their composure and nerves giving the Fraport Skyliners a rude kick into early summer vacation. The team finished the season with a 18-16 record sneaking into the Beko BBL playoffs and having a date with the mighty Brose Baskets Bamberg. After a surprise 75-74 win Bamberg in game one something no Beko BBL team ahd done in 2 years dating back to the Deutsche Bank Skyliners, they lost the next three games as Bamberg went on to win the Beko BBL title
This season Michael Koch was back at the drawing board and was able to construct another very interesting team that will be fighting for the playoffs. As it is every season, there is always the difficulty of keeping talented players that had good seasons and get tempted by the big money. One of these players was Tony Gaffney who went to the ACB in Spain. The combination of Jared Jordan to Tony Gaffney ally-ops were about as usual at least each game as a Konstantin Klein to Johannes Voigtmann give and go play is with the Fraport Skyliners. The team also said farewell to mini microwave Taylor Battle and Simonas Serapinas and little used German Daniel Hain. The team was able to keep dinosaur Chris Ensminger that is turning 39, but always seems to stay at the age of 28 in body on the court and top playmaker Jared Jordan who will be the key to the success of the team. Benas Veikalas was also kept as well as Germans Andrej Mangold, Fabian Thulig and Jonas Wohlfarth-Bottermann. The team picked up four new players with three Americans and one German. The most famous name is Patrick Ewing jr who has NBA experience and is playing his first season in Europe and the club hopes that he will be even a bigger presence under the boards than Tony Gaffney was. Robert Vaden also has NBA experience as well as European experience. He is about as deadly a shooter as they come and will give the team a lot of depth from outside as well as from the mid distance where he hits a majority of his shots. Koch also brought in a rookie with Kyle Weems who is a power forward and played at Missouri State. He lost seven pounds during the summer and is agile enough to play the position three if needed. Finally Koch brought in David Mccray who had played in Ludwigsburg since 2007, but never was able to make the big breakthrough. He now has a new chance and is known as a rugged defender that can score when needed and runs around the court like the brother of Derrick Allen with his hectic play. He also is like an extra assistant coach on the court which can always be beneficial. The strength of the Telekom Baskets Bonn this season will be their quickness. With Jordan you have a passer that can find any teammate at any time. He will be the main force on keeping the offense going. The team also is looking forward to playing defense and have two pit bull dogs with Germans David Mccray and Andrej Mangold. A weakness could be the boards if the project isn´t done properly. Ensminger is turning 39 and one can never know if an injury will occur. The back up center is little used German Wolfarth-Bottermann. He will have to give stability and the team will have to pride team rebounding as a whole. Bonn will have to stay healthy if they want to have a chance of reaching the Beko BBL playoffs this season. “I like how Bonn play this season. They will play well. They have good gaurds and inside players. All in all a good mix of Indians and chiefs. They play disciplined basketball like bringing the ball to Ensminger and like to change the rhythm on defense. I think that Koch has done a good job this year with finding the right quality of players that will mesh together”, said basketball expert Steven Clauss.
In the last Six seasons, The Deutsche Bank Skyliners only have a 5-12 record. It doesn´t matter if Frankfurt played at the old gym or in the new arena, Frankfurt is 0-9 in this time. The last time, The Deutsche Bank Skyliners won in Bonn, New England patriot Tom Brady had not sipped champagne yet as a third Super Bowl winner, Jurgen Klinsmann was still coach of the German national soccer team, Paul Potts was still selling cell phones and singing in front of the mirror and the terrifying Tsunami was only a few days old as Frankfurt won in Bonn on January 1st 2005 with a 79-67 win as Chris Williams exploded with 27 points and 16 rebounds.In the 2010-2011 season the Skyliners lost a tight 92-89 game shortly before the new year as Nic wise took control in crunch time.The 20 point, eight rebound and seven assist performance didn´t help in the losing cause from Dashaun Wood. Frankfurt got revenge in the return date in the Ballsporthalle as they took apart Bonn 78-60 as Dashaun Wood led all scorers with 20 points and no Bonn player scored in double figures. In their first meeting last season, the Telekom Baskets Bonn won 79-64 as Bonn was leading 41-34 at halftime and had a strong 22-12 third quarter that iced the cake for the win. Simonas Serapinas Led Bonn with 20 points, while the two ex Skyliners Justin Gray contributed 21 points and Jon Leuer 16 points. Frankfurt shot under 40% and were out rebounded badly. In the return game in Bonn, Frankfurt lost 81-62 not reaching the Beko BBL playoffs. The Skyliners had no method of stoping Chris Ensminger that had 24 points. Jermareo Davidosn added 18 points and Jimmy Mckinney had 13 points in his last game as a Skyliner.
The Fraport Skyliners come into the Bonn game resting in last place with a 1-5 record and are looking to snap their three game losing streak and reeling off another bitter loss in which they let Bremerhaven end the game with an 8-0 run losing 74-68. . Rebounding and limiting turnovers continues to be a problem for the Fraport Skyliners. The Telekom Baskets Bonn are resting in ninth place with a 2-2 record and are coming off a loss at home to the Artland Dragons. Bonn is a very strong rebounding team as they average almost 10 rebounds more than Frankfurt per game. Muli Katzurin will have to have his team ready on the boards. “Bonn is very strong inside and have big edge over Skyliners. Sklyiners need to pressure the Bonn guards much and the game will be determined under the boards. Frankfurt has to show enough power under the basket”, warned Steven Clauss. Frankfurt also has to focus on themselves. “We have to come out an dplay our game and not worry so much about the opponent”, stressed Quantez Robertson.
The club did a fantastic job complementing the team with 38 year old 209cm center veteran Chris Ensminger in 2009-2010 and has returned for a fourth season and just keeps going is as known in the BEKO BBL as jiffy popcorn in the states. He is a BBL statesman that has won two BBL titles with Bamberg in 2005 and 2007, had season double double averages in the BBL with ppg and rpg from 2001-2005. He always gives 100% with relentless hard work under the hoop and one has to look closely for him to sneak a smile during a game. He is a strong center with fantastic rebound-skills, can score from the low-post. He is right handed, but shoots FTs with the left hand. His biggest success was with Bamberg, but he also played in Paderborn and MBC. Before he came to Germany, he played in the NCAA with Valparaiso from 1992-1996. Then he got his first experience as a professional basketball player in Portugal, France and New Zealand. In 2010-2011 for Bonn, he played EuroCup: 5 games: 16.0ppg, 10.0rpg, 1.0apg, FGP: 50.0%, FT: 75.0%; German League: 35 games: 12.8ppg, Reb-2(8.5rpg), 1.1apg, FGP: 54.9%, FT: 74.0%. Ensminger may be 37, but his intelligence may out weigh his talent. “Ensminger plays so hard and is always in the right position on the boards. He won´t out jump anyone, but he is pretty smart”, stressed Quentin Pryor. Former teammate Steve Wright has fond memories of the native from Ohio as they were played together in Paderborn. “Chris is smarter than his opponents and always puts himself in the right position. He is extremely disciplined and is a leader. I don´t think there is really a way to stop him as he is very consistent. He was like a big brother for me and when he gave me advice I listened”, added ex New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig guard Steven Wright. The game of Ensminger also seems to have a special taste as he is always a joy to watch. “His hook shot at the 2010 BEKO BBL Allstar game was very nice. He has an old school game so I wasn´t shocked when I saw it. He seems to have a bag of shots like that”, commented Quentin Pryor. Alex King played two seasons with the veteran that plays like a 28 year old. “He is one of the best centers in the league and can do it all under the hoop, pass, and use both hands. He is just a complete player. Of the court he is a quiet player, but one that you can talk to. I have a lot of respect for him”, expressed Alex King. Last season, he played EuroChallenge: 11 games: 12.0ppg, 6.2rpg, 1.3apg, FGP: 60.6%, FT: 70.6%; German League: 37 games: 14.8ppg, Reb-4(7.3rpg), 1.4apg, FGP: 57.3%, FT: 75.4%

He played at Marist from 2003-2007 and finished his last two seasons as the top assist man in the NCAA with 8,5a nd 8,7apg. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers in the second round in 2007. He never played in the NBA, but was always very close as he visited training camps with The New York Knicks in 2007 and New Orleans Hornets in 2008. Before coming to Bonn in 2009, he played for top team Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius (Lithuania-LKL) and had a stint in the D-league for Rio Grande Valley Vipers (D-League): 36 games: 10.9ppg, 3.8rpg, Assists-2(9.0apg), 2.0spg, FGP: 45.9%, 3PT: 28.0%, FT: 70.3%.
