Hapoel Jerusalem Goes Strawberry Picking - Aug 28, 2011

In 2010, D.J. Strawberry signed a non-guaranteed one-year deal with the New Orleans Hornets and his NBA career appeared to be right on track. Then, a random phone call in January coming from Lithuania changed D.J.'s basketball path, for now. Joining Lietuvos Rytas, the 26-year-old Maryland graduate was introduced for the first time to the point guard position, as Khalid El-Amin suffered a torn quadriceps ending his season, leaving D.J. to pick up the pieces.

'Last year I had to play the unfamiliar point guard position for the first time in my career. It was an interesting experience but this season I'm looking forward to getting back into the mix of playing the combo-guard spot I'm used to.'

Now, after signing a potential 1+1 year deal with Israeli Hapoel Jerusalem, Strawberry has the month of September to raise some eyebrows in the Holy Land and prove his doubters wrong, starting with the team's coaching staff. 'The one month try-out doesn't really matter to me,' Strawberry exclusively told Eurobasket, 'I know what I'm capable of doing on the court, so, as long as I play my game, perform the way I know I can and prove my doubters wrong, I'll be fine and the contract terms don't concern me.'

Negotiations with Hapoel were a long and tough process, how are you feeling now that things have cooled down?

'I'm very glad we got the deal done. I spoke with people from the management and Hapoel is a team I want to play for. I'm ready to come in and do whatever I can to help the team win.'

A basketball specialist describes Strawberry as an improved version of Maccabi Tel Aviv's recent guard Doron Perkins. 'Coming out of college D.J. wasn't even considering playing abroad, J-M is lucky to have him on their roster. His game is very similar to Perkins', but D.J. is more polished.'

'D.J. is a better shooter and more athletic than Perkins. They are the same kind of defender and both bring lots of energy and winning attitudes to their games. If I had to compare
his style of play to someone from the NBA? Can't, D.J. is unique,' added the specialist.

Jerusalem is in a very delicate guard situation, your expectation of adapting and fitting in?

'I want to lead the team and let everything after that play out. I'm really focused on playing and eager to prove everyone wrong and that I'm a good player. I feel good and probably most healthy since I've been in the NBA, and my game is at high level again, so I just want to prove it every night.'

Strawberry knows that if he puts up the right numbers this year, doors on the other side of the Atlantic will reopen, yet, he is focused on here and now 'eventually everyone wants to play in the NBA but I'm not concerned about that when there's not even a league. I'm focused on Jerusalem and helping my new team. Whatever happens after that happens.'

Are you familiar with the NBA names coming into the Israeli league?

'I heard about Jordan Farmar, Trevor Booker, Sean Williams and that Craig Brackins just recently signed in Israel as well, so the league will definitely be good and we will have tough games night in and night out -- I'm really looking forward to it.'

In light of the recent murder charges against NBAer Javaris Crittenton, Strawberry shared his opinion on who could have been a current potential teammate - 'What's happening with Javaris is crazy. I know him personally and he's not even the type of guy to do such a thing, so to see what's going on is very unfortunate.'
