Kerron welcome back to the Beko BBL and the MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. When looking back at the success of the team last season as well as your role, why didn´t you just remain this season?

It was just a decision I made at the time that I thought was best for me.

What did you miss most from last season? The great coaching of John Patrick, the yummy Spätzle(curled noodles) or getting nice screens from Jon Brockman?

Hahaha all 3 JP is the best coach I’ve had since becoming a pro and Brock definitely helps you get open. So for me coming back was a no brainier.
