Nate Bowie
Eurobasket had the pleasure of interviewing Rustavi Energy (Georgia) super guard- Nate Bowie (183-G-86, college: Cent.Arkansas)

1. We know basketball is what you love to do but what do you do in private life?
Well first off I'm a family man and that's what always comes first. I was blessed to have my significant other with me for the most of this season. I watch a lot of basketball throughout the world. Checking in on my friend Leo Lyons from time to time who plays for Budivelnyk. Also watching a lot of Czech Republic, Cyprus and Portuguese basketball. I talk to my family a lot back home. With the far distance in between us I find myself having them handle a lot of my personal business as well. I'm also a big fan of watching movies and writing.

2. Do you like the country Georgia and the people?
The people here in Georgia are extremely nice. Most people don't have the financial power as we do in the USA but their hearts are very warm. Especially my coaches and president. They really tend to my needs.

3. Rustavi Energy brought you in because they wanted to get back to their winning ways, is this season a big challenge for you?
Well I think every season is a big challenge. As a competitor and athlete you want to get better each year and help your team achieve the goals they expected to achieve before the season.

4. During the first half of the season you had the opportunity to stun Armia (Eurochallenge) at home, What was your mindset to prepare for that game?
I find myself not getting much sleep before games. Before games not particularly this game, I try to watch film of my last game to work on things I need to improved. I knew that Armia had a certain way of playing, so to beat them you have to control the tempo and play the way you always played throughout the season. It was a huge win for the club. Our fans are tremendous. Very special group of people.

5. You have played for Terceira Basket in Portugal last season as well as Al Ahli in Doha Qatar, how was your experience in Portugal? Was it a success for you?
My time in Portugal was a time to remember. The view was amazing since I was located on the island. I find myself going out my back porch and looking at the ocean splash against the sea side if I was having a rough day. The city was great but the front office didn't appreciate the hard work I put into the game of basketball. I would consider the season an individual success getting basically every award to get. But that's not what I step on the floor to get or do, winning is everything and we fell short.

6. Last month you visit and played in Batumi. How did you feel in getting the Eurobasket Player of the Week Award?
It was a huge honor. I try every week to do the things my team needs me to do. And my third Eurobasket Player of The Week Award this season really makes my efforts worth while.

7. Is there anything you miss about Portugal?
The sound of the ocean washing up on the beach. Also I had great teammates.

8. Is there any chance for you to sign a contract with the NBA D-League again or NBA Summer League?
Well me and my agent like to weigh my options for sure. It's not just me I have to think about anymore but what's best for my family as well. If I have a few teams interested than I wouldn't mind working out for them this summer and seeing what comes out of it. I mean who wouldn't?

9. European basketball is really different from American basketball, is this true?
Yes so to speak. You come here and notice the ball is different as well as the 3-Point line and use to be the free throw lane. But the biggest difference is that everything is more clutter. The basketball in the states is an ideal game for people with one on one skills an ability. That's why some guys love it here in Europe. Your mishaps of your basketball skills can really be hidden do to the team game they play a lot overseas.

10. What do you do in your free time?
I love to go out to dinner and enjoy a nice night of jazz. Theirs some nice places in Tbilisi, Georgia that we experienced with that kind of taste.

11. Your favorite team?
Well that's a hard question. I mostly watch teams that my friends play on. But I love to watch Montepaschi Siena. I think they really play the kind of style thats good for Bobby Brown. Love to watch his game. I also like of course Budivelnyk. In the NBA I would have to say Miami Heat, would love to see a repeat.

12. Movie?
My favorite movie right now is Django. The plot was crazy and Samuel L. Jackson played a fine character.

13. What Kind of Music do you listen to?
I love all kinds. If you look in my iPod I have Country, R&B, Rap and even Blues and Jazz. I'm a huge fan of Black Hippy (Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock). Their word play is insane and deep.

14. Who is your idol on the court? And off the court?
My idol on the court is Earl "The Pearl" Monroe. I learned so much from him. Actually I have a few bookmarks of his highlights and games on my computer as we speak. They didn't call him Black Jesus for no reason lol. Off the court I would have to say my Brother Aaron and my pops. My bro was always that guy that said I could do better and to always keep pushing. Nothing was never good enough and tough love was his thing. You don't realize how much that can help you back than but it helps for sure now. My dad is the one that put the rock in my hands and started it all.
