You missed a month on account of an injury. How tough was this period for you?

It was difficult because we all came back after Christmas with a lot of energy for a fresh start in 2013, but then I got injured after a few days in practice. It was very frustrating for me, but these things happen.


When you look back at your career, you have had luck not having injury problems.

Yes that is correct. I missed a season at North Carolina State, but other than that I have been fortunate. In my 2.5 years at Chalon before this injury, I missed only one game.

What is always the most difficult thing for a player during an injury?

Watching your team on the court and seeing things happen on the court and physically not being able to help them.

Was Chalon able to compensate your loss during your injury?

I think that they did a good job. We lost to Gravelines by 30 points and lost in the cup to a PRO B team, but since then have won three games in a row.


After winning the double last season, Chalon is strong again and are near the top of the standings. What makes them so strong this season?

I think that we have experience and have many returning players and that we have a good chemistry. We like playing on the court together. It is still a building process.

Talk a little about the players that Chalon have added and made you stronger.

We have Sheldon Williams who played at Duke and was in the NBA. I have known him for many years. He is a great guy on and off the court. We also added marcus DEnmon who is very athletic and Kevin Houston who is a point guard with PRO A experience. I played against him two seasons ago. All three guys are great and there is no negativity at all.

How important and difficult was it to keep Blake Schilb?

It was difficult keeping him. He was the PRO A MVP last season and was in demand before and during the season. His contract ends after this season and I am sure there will be even more demand for him.


How much fun is it playing with Sheldon Williams?

It is always fun with him. Recently his old school Duke beat mine North Carolina State and he came into the locker room with a Duke shirt and teased me. I then reminded him that we beat them a month ago. We like teasing each other about basketball and the good old days.

How did you play against Duke and Sheldon Williams with North Carolina State back in the day?

I remember beating them at home when they were ranked number one in the nation. All our fans ran on the court. It was a very special moment in my career. We lost too them in a ACC semi final where we were leading for most of the game. He and JJ Redick had great games. I believe we won only once in six games.

What has been the most amazing thing that you have seen Sheldon Williams do on the court?

He is an incredible player. His moves are most amazing. He just likes to go through the defense and somehow gets off a shot in traffic and it goes in. Along the way everyone else falls down, because he is so strong.


How much potential does a Marcus Denmon have?

He was drafted by the San Antonio Spurs. He is a two guard and we are trying to help him become a one. He is an unbelievable shooter and is still young and very gifted. He was injured for three months which has hurt.

Did it surprise you that a guy of Denmons skill played at Jimmy Mckinneys school Missouri?

No it doesnt. I asked Him about Jimmy, but he never played with him, but had heard of him as he came the year Jimmy went pro.


You are playing another solid season. Has anything changed with your role?

Nothing has really changed. My role is still to shoot three pointers, be smart and make room for Williams and Schilb.

You are shooting over 40% from downtown for the second consecutive season. What is your secret to the Evti swish being so consistent?

Just much practice and having confidence. I am more confident than ever with my shot.

What has improved most with your game since you have come to Chalon?

I think that I have become a better shooter. I read the defense better which lets me get my shot off better. I alos am a better defender.

You played nine games in the Euroleague. What was your fondest memory of the Euroleague?

My nicest memory was beating Siena at home in overtime. We lost many close games and were so close to qualifying. The margin of error is very small in the Euroleague.

Who was the toughest guy you played against in the Euroleague?

Deon Thompson from Alba Berlin. It was hard adjusting our defense to his game. I know him since many years since we have played against each other each summer for the last 5-7 years. It was really hard to stop him.

How surprised are you that your friend Greg Jenkins is playing in the third league in France?

Wow I was not aware of that. I have not spoken to him since last season. Players sometimes go through hard times. Sometimes it is hard to get a job as there are many players and less jobs. Some players have less luck and before they know it end up in lower leagues.

Are you still making drawings?

Not as much as before, but every now and then I draw with my son.

With what ex Skyliners do you have the most contact to?

Derrick Allen and Koko Archibong.

Videos of little boys making incredible shots have been popping up. When will your son be in a basketball video?

I saw that video of that two year old boy making incredible shots. My son saw that video and was jumping up and down and grabbed the ball. My son not as talented yet, but he is younger and practicing.

Who will win Oscar as best film?

I have no idea. I have been watching a great show Revenge.


When will you return to Frankfurt?

I dont know, but maybe in the summer. I want to show my wife where I lived for two years.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

Revenge.

Thanks Evti for the chat.
