Forrest, thanks for talking to German Hoops. You started the season in Belgium. Did you have any chance of seeing Germany or is this the first time that you’re here?
I didn’t get to see much of Germany when I last came. But I hope I get to now that I am here playing.
What do you know in general about the country Germany and it´s basketball? Do you have any friends playing here?
I don’t know much about basketball in Germany. I know a few guys that played in Germany before and they all have nothing but good things to say.
What was most appealing thing about the ETB Wohnbau Baskets that led you to sign here?
What made me sign with ETB was the opportunity to play a big role in the success of the team moving forward.
