Nick thanks for talking to germanhoops.com! Where are you at the moment and how isbasketball life treating you at the moment?
Right now I’m just at home with my fiancé enjoying some downtime on our off day.
Congrats on the amazing quick start as your 10-0 with the Bayer Giants Leverkusen. If somebody had told you in pre season that the team would have begun at 10-0 what would you have said?
Basketball life wise I’m great. Our team is 10-0 and I have no complaints. We have been playing great basketball. If someone would have told me we would be 10-0 I’m not sure if I would have believed it. I think we all knew when we first came together as a team we were very capable of having a good season.
Have you ever registered a start like this in your career? How does it feel reeling off so many wins in a row?
I’ve had a year like that when I was in high school I was lucky enough to have a great team then. It feels great I think the most exciting time we have in the week is after the game. During the week, we are just fully focused on the next game.
