Greg's Articles

So how has the transition been from playing college ball in the states to playing in Europe?
I wasnt really sure what to think when I came to Europe to play. I was really opened minded and was up for everything that was ahead of me. In college we were spoiled. We had sports trainers, now I get my ankle taped by my coach. I had a locker in our locker room, now I bring my bag with me everywhere and change where ever I can. In college I was thankful for down time because between practices and school I was exhausted. Now down time means sleeping, watching T.V. and lifting weights. I cant wait for practice because it gives me something to do.

What is it like living in Finland?
I am enjoying Finland. For the most part everyone speaks English which isnt intimidating at all. People here are very nice and welcoming.

Have there been any barriers to your success so far. Such as language, culture or even the food that you are eating?
I wouldnt say that there have been barriers since I have been here. I am an open minded person so I can try most things once and decide if I like them or not. My coach sometimes does go off on tangents in Finnish, but there is always a teammate that will translate for me. The one thing that I havent gotten use to is when people in Finland enter homes, gyms or places where they will be for an extended periods of time, they take their shoes off.

How have your new teammates adjusted to your arrival?
My teammates love me. I am the kind of person that can talk to a wall so I wasnt nervous about making new friends with my teammates. I think they like my personality and the fact that I really care about our team and how we do. We have really bonded and I consider a lot of these girls my friends and I am sure that I will continue to talk to them once I leave.

Overall how would you rate your experience playing for Huima and living in Finland?
For this being my rookie season, I would rate Finland pretty high. I am on a team that has the potential to win the whole thing. My team has given me a chance to get my foot in the door as a professional basketball player.
