Bobby Brown
Eurobasket had the pleasure of sitting with Montepaschi Siena superstar - Bobby Brown (188-PG-84, college: CS Fullerton)

1. What kind of man is Bobby Brown in private life?
I am A hard-working man, family guy. I miss my family a lot, I talk with them a LOT, I think I am positive guy, I love to laugh, I love to be around people, IM A PEOPLE PERSON JUST A FUN LOVING GUY.

2. Do you like Italian lifestyle? The country and the people?
Obviously, I like it a lot. I like this city, also other: Florence, Rome. The food here is amazing, I love Italian food. Shopping here is great. Life in Italy is real good taking the countries I played in this is one of the top.

3. In Montepaschi Siena you replaced GRANDE Bo McCalebb, who won Euroleague Alphonso Ford Throphy last season. Was it a big challenge for you?
Yeah, definitely it was a big challenge when I come here. My agent told me before I came here: U know U are going to Siena replacing a good player Bo McCalleb, you have to fill those shoes, are U ready for this challenge? And I told them I was, we made the deal complete. I came here, I tried to play hard, try to be consistent and help the team win. So far, things have been going good.

4. Few weeks ago U had opportunity to play against Bo, and both you and your team played better than him and Montepaschi. What was your teams attitude to that game? And what was your approach?
It was a big motivation for us to go there and play in tough environment and try to win. We know all the things as far as coaching, they were understanding both, switching teams
We came out victorious, it was a big win for us. We were happy and pround. I think it was a big motivation for everybody to try win this game.

5. You have played for Polish Champions Asseco Prokom Gdynia in 2010, how do you recall this period? It wasnt really successful season for U, was it?
Definitely, it wasnt good season for me. It was a tough one for me that season or half a season I played. my euroleague experience wasnt so great. But I think it motivated me to prove everybody to get back to that level, and show people who complained. You know when I left there, I cleared my mind and said I wanna be a complete player and show people I can play this game and I can play on this level. That was my motivation.

6. Few weeks ago U have been to Gdynia again. How did it feel like?
I felt good going back to Gdynia. I've been playing for a while since that happened and I think I let it all out on the court and I tried to win the game as much as possible. That was definitely motivational game for me given the situation I was in. and that was fine.

7. Is there anything you particularly miss from Poland?
Not really. There was freezing cold there. But I miss some of Polish teammates I kind of miss there were some good guys, they showed me around the city and are definitely good friends of mine.

8. How would you summarize your time in NBA? In which team have U felt the best?
My NBA experience was amazing. It was the best job Ive ever had. NBA is a like the best job ever. I get to be at home and play in front of my family in LA. But the best experience was when I played was New Orleans. We had a great coach, a balanced guy, he showed me the ropes, taught me lot of stuff on how to be complete point guard on and off the court, maturity things, it's definitely being like brothers for me. But I have to say New orleans was the best experience.

9. European basketball is very different than American, isnt it? Which style do you prefer?
I prefer NBA style. There is a lot more room to operate as far as a point guard.
It's easier for guards like myself to create more than in European game.

10. Uve been chosen MVP of the week three times this season, U scored 41 points against Fenerbahce. There are some gossips that U will go back to NBA after this season. Is there any chance for it?
Well have to see in summer. If there is a chance for me to go back to NBA that would be great for me and my family, but if there is a great chance for me come back play on a Euroleague team or come back to Siena, that would be great as well. I will have to see what happens in the summertime. So far, its looking ok for both situations.

11. What do you do in your spare time? What are your passions?
Spare time I sleep a lot, I eat a lot, and I am watching a lot of movies. I have a Play station 3 but I really dont play it that much. Usually just watching music, surfing the web, do some online shopping, but mainly sleeping a lot.

12. Your favorite team?
Basketball team I really dont have a favorite team, I follow all my buddies that play different teams.

13. Movie?
My favorite movie right now it Dark night rises The new Batman movie. I watched it again for the fourth time last night.. it's pretty good.

14. What kind of music do listen to?
I listen to all music alternative, hip-hop, rap,R&B, I dont listen country music, but I will allow it a bit. I listen to all genres.

15. U play with no 6 on ur shirt. Is it your favorite number? Does this number have any meaning for U ?
Yeah, It does. My first professional number in Berlin, and we won championship this time. So I got It again and hopefully we'll win championship again. I also had it in NBA as well, but it's definitely because it's my first professional number. My favorite number is number 3, but they didn't have it here.

16. Who is your idol on the court? And out of the court?
Ben Davis, he's retired now. when he played he was my idol. I grew up watching him playing in LA. And definitely playing pick-up and 1-on-1 with him was a big help for me. He's my idol.
Out of court my dad, hes been there for me since I was a little kid, since I was born. He showed me the difference between the right and wrong, respecting people. Just being an adult, being respectable kid growing up. He showed me the ropes, he taught me a lot and he's always been one of my big fans him and my mum that's who I look up to.
