Jai Lucas
Eurobasket had the pleasure of sitting down with BALTIC LEAGUE PLAYER OF THE WEEK Jai Lucas (177-G, college: Texas). After a brilliant 27 point, 4 assist performance en route to a 36 point victory to put his BK Valmiera club in in sole possession of 3rd place in the Challenge Cup.
EU: Jai,, how have you found playing in Latvia? Most importantly, in the Baltic League?
JL: Playing in Latvia has been an amazing experience for me, being my first time in Europe it has been an easy adjustment. The baltic league has been very enjoyable, being able to see the different styles of basketball in the other baltic countries has been pretty cool.
EU: How did you find out the Latvian LBL? What compelled you to Play in this market? Was BK Valmiera's inclusion in the Baltic League a decision maker for you?
JL: After college I wanted to pursue a professional career in basketball and BK Valmiera was one of the teams that showed a lot of interest in me. I had only heard nothing but good things about Latvia and the LBL. With the team also competing in the BBL I felt this was an opportunity that couldn't be passed up.
EU: Last season, you were in the NCAA, now you are in a premier FIBA Competition in Europe. Please tell us briefly any differences between the US style of play and that of Eastern Europe.
JL: There are a lot of differences between the two, but the main ones that stick out to me are the physicality of the games and the travel call. The travel call has been the hardest for mr to adjust to so far.
EU: Please outline for us briefly, what has been the path that brought you here to Latvia this season, and what do u think is on the horizon for you in the very near future.
JL: The path that brought me here to Latvia has been a long one with its highs and lows. My college didn't career didn't turn out as I had hoped for it to, so it put me in a position of needing somewhere to prove myself. For me it didn't matter where I went I know my skill and what I'm capable of just needed the opportunity. In the future I'm trying to keep the same mind set and do whatever is necessary to get to the highest level of basketball in the world wherever that may be.
EU: We know that you get a lot of questions about your family and the NBA tag that is associated with all of you. Did growing up with an NBA player/coach father help prepare you for playing in Europe?
JL: Yes it did, because he taught me everything I know about basketball and has prepared me for anything that this game can throw at, it prepared me to be able to adjust to the european game and how my game can be effective here
EU: It appears that your ability to run a team and apply pressure defense to opposing guards has wreaked havoc in both the Baltic League and the LBL. Is that going to be an asset as the club enters the 2nd season or second half of the season?
JL: I believe it will be I'am confident with where we are right now and how we are coming together as a team. We just need to continue to get better in the second half of the season so we can be in a good position come playoff time.
EU: We see that you and Ernests Kalve have been forming a very formative duo. He has had a tremendous amount of experience given his youth, Have you any thoughts on him?
JL: I love Ernests' game he is one of the best scorers I have ever played with and I have yet to see anyone better than him in the LBL or BBL. I call him Easy E sometimes because he makes scoring the ball look so easy all the time.
EU: Any outlook for the 2nd half, after January? Both in Latvia and also in the Baltic?
JL: Just to keep up pace at the top of both leagues, so we can be in contention to compete for a championship at the end of the season.
EU: Any thing to share or say to your family or fans back home in the US?
JL: Just to say hello to everyone in Houston and that I'm doing good and I can't wait to see them for the holidays. Also to all of my friends that are also chasing their dream abroad to keep working and grinding it out one day at a time.
