Your playing your first season in France for Asvel Villurbane. How do you like it there?

I really am enjoying my time here in France. It was really an easy transition coming to France from Germany. I have to give a lot of credit to my teammates in Frankfurt and coaching staff that got me prepared to play here.

You play in Lyon now. It is an old city. Is the biggest difference to Frankfurt not having skyscrapers?

Yes that is the biggest difference, but there also is no mall here where I live. But I still live close enough that I can walk to practice just like I did in France. Lyon is a nice city and second biggest in France.

Was there a chance last summer that you would of remained with the Fraport Skyliners?

There was some talk in early summer with my agent and Fraport Skyliners, but they didnt know how their budget was going to be so I waited a bit, but as the summer progressed I decided to sign with the team in France.

How were you able to improve as a rookie with the Fraport Skyliners?

I got a lot better as a rookie with Frankfurt. I played with very good players and had a good coaching staff where I could learn a lot from. Justin Gray also helped me a lot who is playing in France now as well. I was always asking him questions and I really learned a lot from him.


What was the most spectacular thing that you saw Quantez Robertson do last season?

I just recently watched the highlight film against ratiopharm Ulm from last season. I remember that Tez was under the basket and the opponent had the ball at center court and he chased him down and stripped the ball from him. You could see just how fast and athletic he was on that play.


Who was your best opponent last season in the Beko BBL?

Bobby Brown was the toughest guy that I played against. He is a great player. He was always tough to guard and you always had to be watching him.

How would you make Jermareo Davidson laugh?

If you go up to him and do his rhymes and raps then he would smile.

What do you miss most from Frankfurt?

I miss living in the mall. It really was a luxury to be able to shop and eat whenever I wanted to and just having it in walking distance.


You played for the New Orleans Hornets Summer league team in 2012. What is your fondest memory of this time?

Just being able to experience it all. It was great playing with and against great NBA players. It was also great to see how NBA player act on and off the court.

What was your impression of Anthony Davis? Do you think that he can become an impact big man like Blake Griffin of Kevin Love in the future?

Yes I think that he can. I didnt have the opportunity to play with him, because he was already preparing for the Olympics with the Dream team 2012.


You havent needed any time to adjust in the French Pro A. How have you been able to make the transition so smooth?

The Fraport Skyliners prepared me well, but also the style of play is very athletic and reminds me of playing during the summer in pick up games. It is very much up and down the style in France.

What is the biggest strength within the team?

We are very versatile as the players can do many different things. We also make the opponent work hard for their shots.


There are only two Americans on the team with you and Tim Abromatis. How are you adjusting to the French way of life?

The transition really has been easy as everyone speaks English. Me and Tim Abromatis are very close and we played against each other in college. I am also learning French now.

What has been the most spectacular thing that you have seen Amara Sy do?

He can do so much, shoot the three, pass or penetrate. He also makes many crazy fade away jumpers that I sometimes have to say wow how did he make that shot with a guy in his face.

Asvel Villurbane had a spectacular victory in the first game of the season beating 2012 France champion Chalon. What will you remember most from his game?

Schilb is a great player. I remember him playing at Loyola here in Chicago. He can do it all, scoring, rebounding and finding the open man. He really knows how to stuff the stat sheet.

Have you found a favorite French food yet?

I havent found a favorite French food yet. It is still the same like in Germany. I go eat at Vaipiano which has great pasta.

How will the Chicago Bulls do this season?

They had a good start and have many good veterans back and I am awaiting the return of Derrick Rose.

Were you surprised how well the New York Knicks started?

I am not surprised with their start. Everyone knew that they can play offense, but they are showing that they play defense this season.

Can we see you in Frankfurt sometime this season?

I want to return and will. We usually have games on Fridays and have the weekend off. I want to come back and watch Tez and support the guys.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

In Time with Justin Timberlake.

Thanks Juice for the chat.
