Aaron thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how was your holiday season?

Hello Miles, I´m currently in Cuxhaven, Germany. My holiday season was celebrated here in Germany and it was good.

What new year resolutions have you set for Aaron Cook the professional player and person?

From a personal standpoint I´ve been focused on learning from past mistakes and ultimately trying to be a better man and husband then I was yesterday. I am a working progress. From a player aspect I´m always training but I´m eating differently at the moment. This is the first time that I´ve focused on what I´m eating and I have seen changes. I feel quicker and my body feels stronger.

You will be starting your 6th professional basketball season. How was the signing process this season? The market has gotten alot tougher in last years. Did you have many more offers than just MBC?

The signing process i thought went well for me. I am happy with the outcome. I had drew some BBL attention but didnt receive any offers.
