Adika Peter-McNeilly (190-G-93, college: Ryerson) is a 24 year old 190cm guard that was born in Toronto, Ontario and grew up in Scarborough that is making his professional debut with the MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. He played at : Ryerson College (CIS) from 2013-2017 playing a total of 93 games and as a senior played 25 games averaging 18.6ppg, 7.2rpg, 3.5apg, 2.1spg, FGP: 53.3%, 3PT: 35.0%, FT: 85.0%. His career highlights at Ryerson included winning the 2016 OUA championship and being a 2017 CIS finalist. He spoke to eurobasket earlier in the summer about basketball.

Thanks for talking to eurobasket.com. Your full name is Adika Peter-McNeilly, but your new club MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg titled you as Peter Mcneilly. How do you like to be called best and does a nickname slip in at times?

My first name is Adika and everyone calls me that. Don't have a nickname

Before we get to basketball, I have to ask you about Family Fued and Steve Harvey. You're a huge fan. In every episode, it isn't rare for Harvey to have hilarious lines. Out of all all the shows you have seen, which Harvey line has stuck with you most?

There has been a lot of lines that Steve Harvey gets me laughing at. I think the funniest moments is when he doesn't say anything and he has this blank expression on his face because of the wild answers he hears.

Congrats on signing with German EasyCredit BBL team MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. How was your summer following the transfer market. How did you experience your first contact with an agent and teams looking for your services. What kind of offers did you have?

This first summer transfer window has been an amazing opportunity, I am happy that MHP Riesen saw potential in me and I am excited to put on their jersey and play for the organization, the city, and the fans.

What do you know in general about the country Germany and it's basketball? Some of your teammates from the Canadian national team like the Scrubb brothers have played in Germany. Did you ask them for any last minute advice or other friends like Jahmal Jones who played in the Czech republic or others who have had dealings with playing in Germany?

It really helps having Jahmal Jones and Aaron Best as friends that goes beyond basketball and that I have kept in touch with after their time at Ryerson. They told me that playing professional basketball will be an experience and that I should go out and play as hard as I can.

You had a stellar career at Ryerson improving your points and rebounds each season and like Michael Frazier will be a rookie starting in one of the top leagues in Europe. Patrick has to have high expectations otherwise he would of signed more experienced players. Do you feel pressure coming in and living up to what you achieved on the court in the CIS to let it carry over into the professional ranks.

I feel no pressure, I have played basketball a very long time and I am confident in my abilities. Nothing will be easy, as the league is very good but once again I am excited to go out on the hardwood and play.

We have loud guys on the team, like energy guys, but Adika is a different type of energy. He's always there to help guys with anything they're struggling with,' says your ex teammate Jean-Victor Mukama. Does this special energy trait that you have come from your big focus of family?

Of course it does, my family instilled positive vibes throughout our household that helped each of us grow as individuals and I use those philosophies with basketball and everything I do in life.

You played four years in the Canadian college league CIS which continues to make strides and send more and more Canadians to the professional level. You probably have watched your share of NCAA games over the years, but with your experience in the CIS, how do you feel has this league grown over the years and is it still very far away from being as top level as the NCAA?

The CIS has grown a lot, coming into the league several years ago to now I have seen the shift of players coming and out and playing oversees.

You played four years at Ryerson and to no surprise lost the CIS final to Carleton in 2017, the Golden State Warriors of the CIS. Do you feel like your development playing at a school like Ryerson was better in the long run than if you would have played at a Carleton where the top competition probably wouldn't have hurt, but still would have been a different experience than having played at Ryerson?

I enjoyed my time playing at Ryerson and I've learned a lot playing for coach Roy Rana. He has taught me the game to the best of my abilities and always believed in me. These last four years I've grown so much as a student and basketball player and there are countless people at Ryerson that helped me along the way.

You won the 2017 OUA title against top team Carleton 86-79 where your 29 points, 12 boards and four assists were significant in the win. What will you always remember most from this victory?

Our team perseverance during times of distress and how everyone in the locker room dealt with adversity.

Eight days later you lost the 2017 CIS final to Carleton 78-69? You gave your all with a 23 point game, but as a competitor I am sure even 40 points and the loss would of meant nothing to you. Did this put somewhat of a damper to the end of your CIS career?

We played a hard game and gave it to Carleton as they won another Championship. One game would not define my CIS career, of course a national championship would be nice but I was more than happy with the way we played and how our season was played out.

You had many great games at Ryerson, but was your 36 point explosion/10/13 three's), seven rebounds and six assists against Western your best game as a professional?

It may have been and I have to thank my teammates and the coaching staff in putting confidence in me that game. Having a group of people wanting you to excel feels great.

How did head coach Roy Rana groom and prepare you best for a professional basketball career at Ryerson?

Coach Roy taught me how to work hard and be the best player I can possibly be every time I stepped out on the court, whether that was in practice or individual workouts.


How does your summer workout plan look like on and off the court in 2017?

Every day I am in the gym training with some teammates at Ryerson or in the weight room getting stronger, other than that I was finishing up summer school in preparation to graduate.

If you had to construct your own NBA Rushmore which 4 heads would you chose?

Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, LeBron James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Lebron James failed to win his fourth NBA title and is still three away from Michael Jordan. Where does Lebron stand right now in your opinion in the never ending debate of who is the best of all-time?

LeBron is will always be behind MJ.

There has been criticism of Russell Westbrook to be focusing more on rebounding to help inflate his stats and possibilities of getting triple doubles instead of focusing on his defensive assignments. Do you feel that this is a fair assessment to the player Russell Westbrook?

Russell Westbrook is an amazing player and I love to watch him play. The effort he gives and the will to win the game inspires me to be better whenever I play.

How do you summarize the 2017 NBA Draft. What sleepers do you see playing a role in the NBA?

I think it is too early to know but I try and keep up with the season and let you know.

Where will the journey of the Houston Rockets go this season with Chris Paul and James Harden in the back court. Do they have enough to make a serious run at the title or is something missing?

Both CP3 and Harden are phenomenal players with the very high IQ coming off the pick and roll. This season it is going to be amazing to watch them both work their craft to help the Rockets win basketball games.

What was the last movie that you saw?

Shutter Island on Netflix

Thanks Adika for the chat.
