Omari Knox: Spurring the Spurs - Jan 12, 2013


POSTED BY:
MORITZ KORFF

Moritz's Articles


Omari Knox
The Dachau Spurs knew what they would get, when they decided to sign Omari Knox (188-G-86, college: Bloomfield) for the 2012-13 season: A versatile, hardworking athlete with an open-minded character who will excel on both ends of the floor, a scoring threat and a player who shows terrific rebounding abilities for a guard.

They knew because it would be an encore. From 2009 to 2011 Knox and his compatriot Anthony Pettaway (203-C-87, college: Defiance) emerged as a highly productive duo in the 1. Regionalliga South-East and guided the Spurs to their greatest success in recent years, finishing the 2010-11 season in third place. While Pettaway would move on to Pro B team SC Rist Wedel that year and put up impressive numbers in the higher league the following season as well, Knox experienced the downside of professional basketball. The 26-year-old was still a free agent when the 2011-12 campaign kicked off and eventually would sit out a year, despite all the success that he had while playing in Dachau, despite earning Eurobasket.com All-RLSO Second Team honors and scoring almost 23 points a game. Thus, the Spurs knew what they would get bringing back Knox last summer, but would he be able to pick up where he had left off?
"I have to admit, it was very difficult to get back into game shape after sitting out a year", Knox said. "Even though I had been practicing with the high school players I was coaching, it didn't really compare to the type of workout I would put myself through when training for my own upcoming season. I started working out last February, not sure of whether I would even have a contract for the following season. I'm happy to say that the hard work is definitely paying off." Instead of playing, he taught the game of basketball at the Dwight Englewood School in Englewood, NJ. Knox said: "I was the head coach for the Freshmen team and assistant forboth theJunior-Varsity and Varsity teams. I enjoyed the experience very much. Dwight Englewood is a very prestigious school academically, and does not get a large pool of athletic talent. However, the head coach there, Eli Goldberger does a great job getting the kids to play hard for him. Last season we were able to continue the school's winning ways and finished with a record of 22-5, losing to nationally #1 ranked St. Anthony's in the third round of the state tournament. Coaching last season was quite an experience for me and I think it also helped with my growth as a player. It is definitely one of the things that I want to pursue when I am finished with my playing career."

Averaging 24.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.8 steals a game this season the Brooklyn, New York, native is back in production mode and simply indispensable on a somewhat pressured Dachau team. "At 4-9we have definitely been struggling this season. Our team is pretty young and lacks experience. We don't have a hugefrontcourtand have had to try and find different ways to make up for it. We always play hard which is why we have been able to compete and be in close games, losing only by a few points. However, having a thin roster has also been a major problem for us", Knox told Eurobasket.com.

Being short of bigs and without notable presence in the paint Dachau coach Florian Kroepelin is happy to have the best rebounding guard of the Regionalliga on his team. Standing only 6'2'' tall does not affect Knox's proficiency in clearing the boards. "I've always tried to be a good rebounder from the guard position", Knox said. "Even in college I was pretty good [he averaged 7.1 and 6.7 rebounds per game respectively in his last two years at NCAA D2 school Bloomfield]. Many guards don't really make the effort to go after the rebound. On the offensive end it gives you the opportunity to score more points. On the defensive end, it takes some of the pressure off of the big guys when the team has a guard who can help rebound. Not to mention, I don't have to wait for an outlet pass, and can start the break right away."

Those fast breaks will often end with Knox slashing to the hole, while outside shooting is not that much of a factor in his game as it used to be at an earlier stage of his career. In 13 games played this season, Knox hit a solid 39.2% (20/51) from beyond the arc, but due to his role in Dachau he is scoring less from the perimeter compared to his college days at Bloomfield, when he ranked amongst the top shooter in all of NCAA D2, nailing 91 of his 227 three point attempts as a senior. "I was actually thinking about this while working out at my old college over the Christmas break", Knox said, who continued: "When I first got to college, I worked on my three point shooting regularly because it was a weakness in my game. I eventually became a good shooter. When I got to Europe I felt like I needed to become more of a threat. I felt like I needed to be much more than a three point shooter, so I've worked on other aspects of my game. One of the areas I've worked heavily on improving is my mid-range game, which has really been beneficial this season."

Taking on the Dachau Spurs, any opposing team in the RLSO will focus on giving Knox a hard time to be as efficient as he usually is. And his teammates will look for him, when the game is heating up. Is there a way of learning how to become a difference maker and a clutch player? Knox said: "I think that being a go-to-guy is something that you can learn over time, and not necessarily have to be born with. I think it depends on a number of things like talent and work ethic, but most importantly the player has to be tough mentally."

Currently in his third season with the Spurs, the Brooklyn native has "grown to love it in Bavaria" and relishes the "pretty quiet and relaxing" city of Dachau as well as being close to the Bavarian capital: "Whenever I want to get out and enjoy myself I am only 15 minutes from Munich", he said. But though Dachau feels like home away from home, making the transition to a league above the RLSO for next season after dominating this competition for three years, sounds like an appealing challenge without a doubt as Knox said: "I wish there were a few more Bundesliga teams in Bavaria because I would love to stay in the area, but of course I would like to play at a higher level as well. Hopefully, I attract the interest of some of them this year."
