Getting to Know Nate Bowie - Aug 14, 2012

The Georgian Superleague and Energy Invest Rustavi is the new home for Nate Bowie this season. The 26-year old Bowie joins Rustavi after a well-traveled 2011-12 season which saw him lead the Portugal LPB league in scoring over 15 games only to have the team run into financial problems and force his departure to Qatar where he appeared in one tournament for AlAhli Sports Club Doha. Though well-traveled, Bowies journey is nothing compared to the one he made from toiling in the US minor leagues working and waiting on a chance to prove his game in Europe. A star both in Junior College and at Central Arkansas (Southland Conference leading scorer, 2007-08) Bowies professional journey has taken him from NBA D-League hopeful to Vancouver, Canada to Spain, Portugal, Qatar and now Georgia. The 6-0 point guard took some time to talk about his career journey, achievements, hopes and aspirations for the upcoming 2012-13 season.

Q.I guess the first question should be what led you to signing with Energy Invest

A. Well coming off a solid season I wanted to make sure that which ever team that I choose to go with for the 2012-2013 season
would be a team that wants to be better. Better meaning the team wants to improve from last season.
Rustavi was formally in the Eurochallenge and has won, meaning Superleague titles, so in knowing that they want to get back
to their winning ways the choice was pretty easy.

Q.What have you learned about Georgia the country since signing? When will you join the team for training camp?

A. Before I sign with any team I like to do my own research pertaining to the country as well as the team. I found out many things that were pretty interesting to me. What I found interesting was the actual scenery. From the snow capped Caucasus mountains to the Black Sea which borders the coastline. I always wanted to put my feet in the Black Sea and now I can. Also learned that for a long, long time Russia had a major effect onGeorgians and just recently they have became more into their own culture. As far as the people they consider guests (foreigners) a blessing and welcome us with obsessive hospitality.

Q.You played with Terceira Basket for two seasons, first helping get them promoted from the Proliga to the LPB. What was the difference in the leagues and what changed with the team in the second season that things did not work out financially?

A. Well I think anytime you win a championship and play at the highest level professionalism is the biggest difference depending on the teams. But as far as the league their isn't really a difference just simply size. Our second season we put together a nice team to cause some noise, but with the management not being honest and taking money this can cause a team willingness to play and perform very unlikely especially import players that's coming from a distance to help a team succeed. So in saying that I do wish the best for Terceira.

Q.What were your thoughts about Qatar during your short stay there?
Is it somewhere you would consider playing again?

A. Qatar by far as hospitality and first impression was the best, not taking anything away from my friends in Spain. But first impression is everything and making someone feel at home can really do a lot for a player. And that's what the team did in Qatar. Playing a whole season right now their, at my age, No. I say no because I like the style of Europe and think this is the best place for me right now in my career. But playing in Qatar at an older age would for sure be an idea I will take into consideration.

Q.Going back to when you graduated from Central Arkansas, what was your outlook on your career? What was the first step you thought you would make? Was it the D-League?

A. Truthfully after leading a D1 conference in scoring I thought my career would start at a really high level, but bad chooses with picking agents really hurt me. But I regret nothing, because if I hadn't took this path in my life I wouldn't have never met such wonderful people. So I regret nothing. Signing a contract with the D-League was very exciting but with life comes lessons and you just learn that everything is not for everyone.

Q.You have had a very successful career, going all the way back to your first days at Colby JC, but have somehow remained relatively under the radar.
Is this something that bothers or motivates you?

A. Yes for sure. This is what motivates me each and every time I step on the court. I have something to prove regardless if I was playing in the Euroleague or the NBA because I know where I came from and how hard it was. You just learn that it's now how good you are but who you know. If the right people are in your corner and want you to succeed than you will. I'm improving each and every year so i am happy with the steps I'm taking to the top. Georgia is a better league than Portugal having teams playing in the Eurochallenge as well as NBA guys like Sundiata Gaines. So it will be a difference experience that I'm waiting to take on by the horns.

Q.What is your ultimate career goal as a player? What is your greatest achievement so far?

A. My ultimate goal each and every year is to get to the highest level that I can get to and just enjoy life one step at a time. If I stop playing right now I have many stories to tell my children (once I have some lol), so I'm very blessed. I think my greatest achievement isn't just pertaining to basketball but off the court meeting some that you can share your success with and start a family with. 2011-2012 was full of bumpy rides but mellowed out for sure and was one of my best years yet.

Q.What can the fans of your new team expect from Nate Bowie this season?

A. They can expect a season of full excitement and fun packed day in and day out. Better watch out because Rustavi have a few surprises up their sleeves lol.

I want to thank my good friend Surujh Roopnarine for taking time out to do this interview. I also want to thank my good friend Richard Rivera who is the Owner over my endorsement brand Two-DaHole this is going to be a big year. www.2dahole.com ya support my brand which comes from a lot of hard work. You can go to Facebook and like or add Two-DaHole page. Also thanks AGSS.

Always remember the reason people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten.
