He spoke to after the tough 99-77 loss to the Fraport Skyliners.

The Rostock Seawolves suffered a tough 99-77 loss to the Fraport Skyliners. Rostock SeaWolves entered the game having won 3 of 4 games. Did the SeaWolves underestimate the Fraport Skyliners?

No we didn’t.

After 40 minutes is it fair to say they don’t look anything like a last placed team?

They are a strong team.

You were a rookie in the Ukraine when Jordan Thoeodre last played in Germany in the BBL for the Fraport Skyliners helping them win the Fiba Europe Cup. What did you know about him and how did the team prepare for him?

He is a really good point guard and controlled the offense.

Did his game fill up a good majority of the scouting report.

Yes it did.

The Fraport Skyliners came out quickly leading 24-16 after 10 minutes and Rostock had to play pick up basketball the whole afternoon. Frankfurt’s three pointer was falling early. The 15 three’s Frankfurt made in the first game against Rostock must have been on the scouting report for this game.

Yes they shot it well.

The Rostock Seawolves trailed only 42-38 at the break. What was key for Rostock staying in the game besides showing those impressive fighting qualities?

We just tried to stay together on both sides.

The Fraport Skyliners exploded in the third quarter for 33 points. What did head coach Christian Held tell the team to do going in the third quarter and why couldn’t the team execute defensively?

They made some tough shots and we did not have a good defensive quarter.

What adjustments did you see the Fraport Skyliners make on the defensive end in this game in comparison to the first game in December in Frankfurt where you scored 6 points more? Did you see a different defensive identity under new head coach Klaus Perwas?

Not really , they played a really solid game.

In the fourth quarter the Fraport Skyliners continued to play their game and the Rostock Seawolves couldn’t get over the hump. Of course Jordan Theodore was a huge factor, but did you see a different kind of Frankfurt mentality under new general Jordan Theodore?

Sure, he is a veteran.

What was your impression of Jordan Theodore? How crazy is it to come in and just dominate as if he had always been there?

Great player and really knows how to run the show.

Did you sense a special chemistry between Jordan Theodore and Quantez Robertson. If Frankfurt keeps this up, do you think that Frankfurt could go on a late season run and not have to worry about moving down?

Who knows. It will be interesting.

The Rostock SeaWolves still have every chance of reaching the playoffs. How confident are you that the team will turn it around in the next game against Heidelberg?

We will have a good week of practice and shake it off.

How motivated will the guys be for Alba Berlin and FC Bayern Munich? You lost both games easily at home? What are you most looking forward to in these games?

Just looking forward to putting together a good 40 mins both games.

Roy Krupnikas played his 4th BBL game of season. What has he improved most this season?

He is a great talent and has a bright future. He is learning fast.

Now that you have the German citizenship, what has given you the most gratification this season as a veteran playing with so many American players?

I’m not sure but it’s fun playing and I don’t take it for granted.

Now that Lebron James dethroned Kareem Abdul Jabbar as the NBA all-time leading scorer, is he now the real GOAT?


Who will reach the NBA final and win it all this year?

Lakers vs Celtics Lakers in 6.

Thanks Chris for the chat.
