Jhonathan thanks for talking to germanhoops.com. Where are you at the moment and hos is life treating you at the moment?
Life is good sir really enjoying the championship and it feels great to just relax for a bit!!
Before we get to Geert Hammink, I want to ask you if you have love for Steph Curry? He just won his 4th NBA title, but has so much haters. Can you understand that? Where do you see Steph Curry right now with the best ever?
I really enjoy Steph Curry. He is a great player in the game and he has changed the way people see it. I think he is one of the best players to play
You just won the BNXT title over Groningen. How do you personally rate this new league combing Belgium and Dutch? Is this a league on the rise?
I think the BNXT league is great opportunity to show what the Dutch players have and show how they stack up with other high level teams.
You just beat Groningen in exciting fashion by a combined score of 3 points in 2 games. Where do you rate this playoff series in all that you have played?
The playoffs series with Donor was great. They played hard and didn’t back down once. But our team stayed together and fought back every time
How blessed do you feel winning 2 titles this season only in your second professional season in Holland? Does that hunger to win more grow 180 degrees?
This series is at the top of my list. It’s a great feeling. I’ve been told not that many people get the chance to win titles so I’m happy to be able to win them with a great group of guys!!
How much credit does Geert Hammink deserve for the success? He came ‘to Leiden 2 years ago and led the team to 3 titles.
Coach is a good one being able to bring guys with different personalities and have us come together.
He had only had 2 years of coaching experience and then wins 3 in the last 2 years. How do you explain his rise as a coach?
He did his thing and it showed. I think his rise as a coach is great. Not too many coaches are able to do what he did and it shows with what he won
Talk a little about his coaching style. He likes to play fast and attractive. How else would you describe his style?
He likes to play fast, active, and under control. He always said we have to play with control Chaos
Talk a little about his strengths. What does he do best from the sidelines each day?
Chaos for our opponents and control for us. He does his best seeing the court and being able to ask us what we see.
Thanks Jhonathan for the chat.
