Interview with with Belgian-Moroccan point guard Karim Nesba - Aug 24, 2012

Karim Nesba
Eurobasket had the pleasure of sitting with Belgian-Moroccan point guard Karim Nesba (188-G-86, agency: Promotex, college: Auburn-Montgomery). Also a member of the Moroccan National Team, he was able to give insights on his dual nationality in both Belgium & Morocco, as well as speak on winning the Championship in Morocco and reaching the CUP FINAL this past season with RSB Berkane.

EU: Karim, how are you doing?
KN: Ozell, I am doing great how are you doing?

EU: I am doing fantastic, am blessed and highly favoured humdullah. We are both finishing Ramadan and it is good to be here with you. Briefly tell us your opinions of the Moroccan National Team this past summer. In a new instalment, you had a new coach, you had some players who had departed the club and returned such as Younes Idrissi or Mohammed Hachad, who was nursing an injury for the past year or so. Tell me more.
KN: Yes we have started with a new everything! New combinations, with a new coach, receiving players back who had been away at college in the States or playing in France and Italy. So we now have everyone back and we have a good team in great shape. We actually qualified for the next African Cup, which is to be held in Abidjan, Cote Dvoir, and next summer.

EU: Where did u guys finish in your stage? I heard that you sounded defeated the National Team of Algeria. Who else was in the stage? Tell us more.
KN: The tournament was in Algeria, we beat both Libya and Algeria so we finished first. That put us in a better group next summer at the next Africa Cup.

EU: Now tell us about this wonderful year that you had in Morocco this past season! Not only did you make it to the Moroccan Cup Final, but you also won the league and now sit as CHAMPION of Morocco.
KN: Yea, it was a fantastic year. We got to the final of the cup losing to AS SALE, in the final by just a few points. Then to be able to bounce back and qualify for the playoffs and there be able to win close games in the playoffs to win the FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP IN CLUB HISTORY!

EU: WOW! THE FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP IN CLUB HISTORY! Is your signing status? Are they calling you to come back for a second go around? Tell us more
KN: Especially now that we are trying to build a strong team, since we are also now going to the African Championship of Clubs, and the Arabic Championships. Havent signed yet though, as the season there starts a bit later in late November or so. I am here back in Belgium, just looking at everything closely as I am look to improve and get to another level as a player. You know, get to another level of competition and not just relax in a league that I know and can play in the rest of my career.

EU: Now you are also a Belgian passport holder. Please tell us of your experiences here in Belgium, as we have heard talk of the level of play going down. Please share your thoughts.
KN: Yes, I was born and raised here in Brussels. The reason that I left early was due to getting a scholarship in the USA at Howard University. So I finished up there, came back and played a season at Bree one year. Then I went to Morocco now for two years. I never really played in Belgium in the top league. The reason being, we Belgian guys are missing. In the top league, you dont see many of us. You have the Americans who come and they play, more or less get our jobs, so to speak. Thats also because there are no real rulesthere are only 8 teams now in division one. There is no team that goes from division 2 to division 1 there are no teams going down. I do think that they will fix this in the next 2 years or so. The good Belgian guys are missing. All of the good Belgian guys are missing, we have the top guys playing abroad, in Italy we have Jonathan Tabu, Sam van Rossum in Spain, a lot of good Belgian players, but not enough to have a good Belgian League.

EU: What are you looking to do? \number 1 to change the situation here in Belgium and Number 2 to change or benefit the situation in Morocco, as you are on the National Team. This is if a change is even possible?
KN: I am going to go where I am needed. I am not going to go into a situation where it is easy. I would rather have a job where I the threat of getting cut or losing my job and being forced to the bench. I dont want a situation where I can just coast and play easy. I want to be pushed. I want to be challenged, have more responsibility. This is what I play for, also a reason why I left Belgium. Most Belgian players they just go to sit on the bench and watch the Americans play, and its as if they think that its normal and they dont want to fight to show the management or the coach that THEY CAN DO IT TOO. I dont see anyone working in the off-season so that they can show that they can kill that guy or this guy. I just see them happy to be there. Hopefully, we can see this change in the near future.

EU: What can we look for from you this season and in the seasons to come?
KN: Well, I look to keep getting better and better. Getting to another stage, I have some workouts and trials In France. SO wherever it is that I end up, you will see me compete as best as I can and compete within my team to make us all better. To be able to stand on the podium with the CUP or trophy as the CHAMPION! It's even better than being the leading scorer or the best scorer of the league THE BEST EXPERIENCE OF ALLBEING THE CHAMPION!

EU: Any words for your fans in both Belgium and Morocco?
KN: Hmm, I dont think I have a lot of fans. I want to call them young brothers, lets say. Guys that I know that want to be pro and want to be basketball players. They have to know that it is very tough. They need to know that they have to studyfind a place where they can study and play basketball. This world of basketball is not easy. It is very rough and there is a lot of competition and there are a lot of risks. They need to ensure that they are very careful and they will be allright.

We at EUROBASKET want to congratulate Karim on winning the CHAMPIONSHIP IN MOROCCO, THE FIRST IN THE HISTORY OF HIS CLUB. POTENTIALLY TO RETURN THERE OR TO MOVE ON TO BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST OR EVEN HERE IN EUROPE.STAY TUINED!
