A little Q&A with Point Guard Kelvin Parker:

What was your last team and what were your achievements there?

Last year I played with the Austrian Bundesliga champion Oberwart Gunners. We finished 4th in the regular season, before taking the crown by defeating the previous champion Gmunden Swans. I finished as the teams leader in steals, assists and FT%. Also was second in scoring. I finished in the top 10 in assists, steals and 3pt % as well as top 3 in FT%.

What have you been doing since then basketballwise?

Since being home from this summer i have done some travelling with my family and taken them out and around the country to see and enjoy the summer as well as worked with some of the future stars from around Kansas City on the basketball court in individual workout situations. Since the fall i have continued to workout a few kids there but most have left for college. I have played on a exhibition team that has played against some of the colleges in the midwest to help stay in shape. I have been working out at a local university and been very fortunate to have some great facilities to work out in.


Tell us about your basketball experience overseas...

My experiences is that i have been to a few different countries (Norway, Germany, Austria) and all i have felt is safe and welcomed by my home fans. With last year topping it off by winning and bringing the first championship to the city of Oberwart. I think the funniest time I had was when my mother came to visit last year with some of my other relatives and my father and close family friends coming to visit me in Munich. To see the pure joy in their eyes and the relaxation of their hearts to see their son at work and to see these beautiful countries was an overjoying experience for a son to take in. As well as when we had my sons 3rd birthday party at an indoor swim park in the middle of the winter. Some of the silliest exp include being in the spas for the first time where there were NO CLOTHES ALLOWED, then telling the stories to friends and family and seeing the looks of disbelief on their face only to later find out differently once they visit europe.


Where would you like to play ball this season?

I would love to play in a new country just to add to my experience as a player. I think each country will give you a different taste and experience in life. Not to take away from the previous places i have played in because they were all great. I would just like the mental challenge of taking on a new country and trying to create a name and positive vibes in that area. Some of my top countries include that of France, Italy, Spain As those are considered to be top European basketball countries that offer great fan experience as well as a beautifiul architecural design. I have heard some good things about a lot of places but those would definitely be my top 3 choices at this time.


Tell us about your strenghts on court?

Some of the strengths of my game would include my natural leadership skills, followed by my passing and court vision. I love to fool people by making a good pass that they didnt see coming. I love to set people up to get dunked on by a teammate thats a play that gets the team going. I am able to score, and that is something i am constantly looking to improve on wether its a different one on one move every offseason or adding some range to my shot. I just love passing because it includes others. When you are passing the ball well and you start scoring it can give your game balance which is something i love to have at the end of the night. Consistency is also an attribute I have had over the years. This is something that I feel is a big asset. As a point guard the game plan changes but when you are playing with a high basketball I.Q. then you are one step ahead of your opponent. And yes i would consider myself as a High IQ basketball player.

Are there any weaknesses you got to work on?

A weakness in my game i would say is sometimes finishing in traffic going right. My right hand is pretty good as i am a lefty so growing up you are always told and taught you have to be able to use your right but at times when you see a big guy coming over to help you take that glance and then you dont always trust your work that you have put in to master that shot or putting the right spin on a lay- up. I have been spending a lot of time on that to improve that aspect of my game.


What is the ball player Kelvin Parker all about?

At the end of the day Kelvin Parker the player is about winning. I know that every game wont be my best scoring performance or have my best assist to turnover ratio but if i have led my team to one more point more than the opponent then i did the job for that night. Records will come and go, rise and fall. But winning a championship will stand forever. To make my case in proving that Ill give you some proof. I am the all time winningest player from my school Northwest Missouri State's history with 100+ wins. I helped bring a championship to the Vermont Frost Heaves in its inaugural season. And I contributed in a big way to bring the city and great fans of Oberwart its first championship in its 5th try. When youre winning everyone is having fun and your boss is happier about cutting that check.

Where are you right now and are you ready to go anytime?

As far as my availability I am ready and I am hungry. I stay in shape and I take good care of my body. I have been so blessed thus far to not have any major injuries and Im ready to go as of YESTERMONTH!!! When the call comes im ready!
