A tough 89-75 loss against the EWE Baskets which has ended the season of Brose Bamberg. How tough is going out like this at a time where the team had found themselves going into the Oldenburg series?

It’s really tough.

Was this one of those games where no matter what you tried as a team, the other team was just better or was this loss credited more to the mistakes that you made as a team?

We weren’t playing our best basketball. And against Oldenburg they quickly take advantage of mental lapses and easy scores.

Did the 11-2 EWE Baskets start in the third quarter decide the game and how much did the early 5th foul of Jordan Crawford hurt?

There are a lot of parts that hurt us in the game. Jordan being one of our best scorers was definitely one of them.

Everyone is always talking about the great play of a Paulding and Mahalbasic, but today it was other guys that really stepped up like Hummer, Boothe and Larson. How tough was it going against them on the defensive end?

With a team like Oldenburg there are so many guys capable of scoring that it’s hard to pinpoint who’s day it will be but I think we gave up to many easy buckets.

Despite losing in the quarterfinals, what positives do you feel could Brose Bamberg take from the Munich tournament?

The positive is that we got to bond during the tournament. It really made us bond with each other and some of the other players and coaches in the hotel.

How did you see the development of young German Nelson Weidemann this season? Is he a guy that will be able to make an impact at the BBL level in the next years?

Sky is the limit for him. He has all the tools, and the more experience he gets, the more dangerous he will be.

You had another strong game with 20 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists. How content were you with your play in Munich considering that you hadn’t played in 3 months competitively?

I’m not content, I play for wins, Not I would have been content if we won.

What is your summary of the Munich tournament for Brose Bamberg? What was your personal highlight during the 2 weeks?

I definitely expected us to better this tournament. But the personal highlight was quality time with my team.

After playing last season in Hungry how do you feel is Kameron Taylor a different and better player than 2 years ago when he ended the season with s.Oliver Wurzburg?

or sure. The goal is to grow each and every year. If I can do that then I know I’m on the right path.

What is the next step for you? Could you imagine remaining with Brose Bamberg or would you want to seek a new challenge elsewhere?

I’m looking forward to expand my game and next year be ready to be a great impact for Bamberg or any other team.

What is something you are looking forward to finally doing again at home once COVID-19 has let up a bit?

Walk in the city and have some family bonding in my city Washington DC. And see BLACK LIVES MATTER PLAZA in DC.

The 2 BBL semi-finals are Ludwigsburg-Ulm and Berlin-Oldenburg. Which 2 teams will make the final and who will take it all?

I like Ludwigsburg and what they have been doing. But it’s anybody’s tourney at this point.

Who would win a one on one tomorrow you or your brother James Robinson?

No one beating me one on one
