You are a rookie and playing your first season overseas. What has been the biggest adjustment in Germany on and off the court?
Yeah being a rookie is interesting on and off the court. On the court has been the traveling violation when I go right. In the US you get a extra step in FIBA you have to put the ball down first, so that has been a adjustment. Also the amount of help off the ball that teams provide. as soon as you go buy your man there are usually one or two guys waiting on you so the side step has become a nice move for me.
