Tobin
Carberry
I've got the opportunity to have a little chat with Tobin Carberry (193-G-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) of Thor Thorl, a team that plays in the top flight of icelandic basketball, the Dominos League.
In his first two seasons in Iceland, he has played at Hottur Egilsstadir (Dominos League). In 22 games he was second best scorer with impressive 28.2ppg and averaged 9.3rpg, 5.0apg and 2.3spg (in top 3) last season. A very impressive year as he was named to Eurobasket.com Icelandic League All-Imports Team and Honorable Mention.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Carberry's team won Icelandic D1 Regular Season in 2015. He was also voted Eurobasket.com All-Icelandic D1 Player of the Year and Eurobasket.com All-Icelandic D1 Import Player of the Year in 2015.
Carberry graduated from LIU Post in 2013 and it is his fourth season as a professional player.

Why did you choose to go overseas? How did you end up in playing in Iceland?

I have always been very passionate about playing basketball and football since I was a young kid. I happened to have a good college career and I was fortunate to make a living playing it. First year out I thought I would end up in Hungary, where my brother played one of his professional years. Not playing my first yea out was a rough time but I eventually landed my first job in Iceland.

Can you tell us your icelandic basketball history?

My first two years in Iceland I was on a team (Hottur Egilsstadir) that is starting to break through as bigger club in Iceland. We had our ups and downs but I am happy to have been a part of helping them build. Now I am on a team (Thor Thorl) that has a chance to do some special things. As I help my team win and reach our highest goals, it will only help me in my future career.

What are the team goals for this season?
We spent some time in Denmark during the preseason and we did very well. We then had an idea of where we were and where we could be at the end of the year. As a team we are taking it day by day. We are trying to improve as much as we can. We are the youngest team in the league but we also have some of the best young talent in Iceland. We also have a good coach that really connects with the young players that we have. The season is young but there is something special about this team.

Do you live in Reykjavik? Can you tell us your typical day in Iceland?

I live in orlakshoefn which is about a hour from Reykjavik. This is my third year in Iceland so I have learned my way around. I just got a Blue Lagoon season pass so I will be there a lot. There are a lot of nice sights to see in Iceland. I love to take pictures. There is an interesting cave right outside of my town that I went to last weekend. My cousin is coming soon, so we will definitely have a lot to do. I have developed many lifelong friendships here in Iceland. Previous years I was always hanging out with my buddy Nockvi and also my old coach Vidar. So living in Iceland is not so isolated for me as I have many friends here.

What part of the icelandic life style do you like the most?
If you are looking for a goodtime you can get that in Reykjavik. If you are into scenery Iceland can be the place for you. I am usually relaxing, watching a lot of film, and hanging out with my girlfriend. The people here in Iceland have been very good to my girlfriend and me. Having her here keeps me from missing home too much.

What are you missing the most from USA?

I miss summer time at home. I miss my mom and dad. I miss my brother who coaches at the University of Long Island. I even miss my nephew who is a knuckle head. I also miss playing summer basketball. I miss playing in the Greater Hartford Pro Am playing with and against great area players like AJ Price, Ryan Gomes, Lamonte Ulmer, Keith Cothran, Doug Wiggins, Ken Horton, UCONN players, and other NBA players which gives me something to look forward to.

What are your favourite hobbies outside basketball?

I like to read. Funny thing is when I was a kid I hated reading. I have read a lot of comic books to keep up with all the movies and tv shows I watch. I also read a lot of psychology books. Not many people know but I have started my masters is psychology and would definitely like to work with kids when my career is over.

What are your favorite team and your favorite NBA player?
I don't have a favorite team or player in the NBA. I do save NBA and other games across Europe and watch them the next day. I am sports junkie and watch all types of sports. I am a diehard Notre Dame football fan. A kid from my hometown that I am pretty close to named CJ Holmes is committed to play football there so he will be my favorite player.

Last book that you read and last movie that you saw?
I have read a lot of Comics but the last book I read was Night of the Assassin by Russell Blake and the last movie I saw was Sunset Park.

Thank you Tobin and good luck for your career.
