Exclusive interview with Israeli National Team head coach - Arik Shivek - Jun 27, 2012

Arik Shivek
Eurobasket recently had the pleasure os sitting and chatting with famed Israeli coach Arik Shivek (agency: Avi Zilberman ). Recently completing the season in the Belgium Ethias League, he was able to share some of this thoughts, as we sat with a living legend.

EU: Coach, it is a true joy to be able to chat with you. How have you found this last tour of duty in the Belgian League?
AS:level is lower than last year...competition was bigger because Charleroi was a bit weaker than last year, Antwerp and Oostende really upgraded their level both teams controlled the league all season. There were both teams controlling the league all season, those three teams, then 4-6 and lastly 7-9 was how I viewed the way the things came out....lets go team by team
Charleroi was very unlucky with injuries early in the season.
Oostende-made changes with players that really fit the system and they were the best team . With those great moves they deserved the title, even though they won with a lucky basket.
Antwerp-should be quite disappointed because in the money time, they failed in both competitions, they had home advantage in the playoffs and lost in the semifinals and they had home advantage in the cup and they lost it. They played good basketball in the season And after leading the league all season, they failed and were really disappointing. They had home court advantage in the Cup and lost in the semifinals,. In the league they were really good but in the playoffs and in the Cup, they were really disappointing.
Us (Mons), Aalst, Lueven- these three teams were ok but not more than ok
my team was suffering what happened with juan carter and sean singletary., these two really affected our season, but we did the unbelievable in the end we stepped up reaching the final four
The last 3- Ghent,Liege and Pepinster it was all about budget. The teams with low budget showed it in how they finished in the league.

EU: Having coached abroad, not only in your home country of Israel, but also in Holland and most recently in Belgium, what is your view of the level of play across the different regions?
AS: Its hard to compare the Israeli league with the Dutch and Belgian, mainly due to the number of foreigners. I think that Israeli players are better, most of them, than the Belgian and the Dutch players. In addition to the Dutch and Belgian players,you add in the American players; and the Belgian league is a very competitive and a good league. Now the Dutch league in my times, now now, 4-5 years ago was a very competitive league with 5 or 6 good teams, with very god Americans. Proof of that is what we did in Europe; quarterfinals, we beat Jerusalem, Dynamo Moscow Region, we beat very good teams..we beat Mons. But these days the leagues are very similar, the Dutch league has gotten weaker but it was much stronger in my days.

EU: What is your take on recent rule changes? For example. The moving blocks that become prevalent in almost every league imaginable, Can you tell us more on that?
AS: I like them (rule changes)..each year they (FIBA) emphasize one rule and you can see its impact in the games. I would like the refs to look closely at these rules but not as its the Bible. They should take them on their own interpretation, that is what makes the job of being a ref so difficult. When the calls affect the way that the coach can coach games, I don't think its the right thing. If you have to change the way that you coach the games, it is the wrong thing. But like I said, I like the new rules.

EU: How do you see the evolution of the game, over the course of your career? Having been a part of epic games in Euro competition and also National Team Games.
AS: I see the game becoming more up tempo, with individual skills taking a larger role now than when I started coaching. We see a lot of one on one play, I actually use a lot of one on one play, the level of individual skill has affected the game positively. The key is to see coaches adapt to the changes in the speed of the game and other ways, the best coaches are also changing as the game changes.

EU: From scouting and observing games, one can see a type of shift in focus from a focus on coaching to a more focus on players and their wants/desires,etc. Not only in the NBA, but also in countries like Holland and France we have seen players doing things quite out of character on the part of a player. How do you feel this type of behavior impacts the game?
AS: Basketball, as we both knw is an emotional game. I think that in the course of the action, players can say or do what they do and when dealing with a coach or a ref it is ok to say things in their ear or up close, but making a cinema out of the situation is unacceptable.

EU: We have heard rumblings of you rejoining the Israeli National Team in the weeks to come. Can you tell us more about this?
AS: Yes, I have returned to the National Team and we will be preparing for the European Qualifiers later this year.

EU: What are you plans for the upcoming season 2012/2013?
AS: I have signed on with the Israeli National Team, long term and I will also be the CO of ALL junior national teams as well.

EU: Do you want to share anything with your fan base, not only in Israel but also in Holland and in Belgium and across the globe?
AS: Speaking of the fans, I have a great appreciation for them, and I know that as they cheer and support you, they can also take that support from you and boo. As such, they are very important and I appreciate what they do to the game.

EU: Any other closing thoughts?
AS: As long as OUR hobby is our job, we have to shut up ad say thanks to GOD

EUROBASKET WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS TIME TO CONGRATULATE COACH SHIVEK ON ANOTHER SEASON IN BELGIUM. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO WISH HIM THE VERY BEST IN HIS NEXT ENDEAVORS, WHEREEVER THEY MAY BE AND WE LOOK TO HERE GREAT THINGS FROM HIM IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE. BEST SWISHES COACH!

Belgian Top Division I round 22 best performance: Francois Lhoest (by Court Side) - 7 hours ago
Former international Power forward Francois Lhoest (196-F/C-85) put on an amazing game in the last round for Ninane, receiving a Court Side Top Division I Player of the Week award for round 22. The 31-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 19 rebounds, while his team beat Ieper (#11, 8-13) 94-87. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Ninane is placed at 10th position in Belgian Top Division I. Ninane is rather...   [read more]
