Jay-R Strowbridge starts blogging from Montenegro! - Mar 6, 2013

Jay-R
Strowbridge
Welcome Eurobasket Family,

First want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for making all of this possible. I want to my wife, my family, friends and fans for believing in me. Its a privilege and honor to be able to play this game I love in another continent and share my experience with you. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my blog. Special thanks to Eurobasket for allowing me to share my journey with you.

My name is Jay-R Strowbridge (183-PG-88, college: Oregon) and I am the newest member of the KK Danilovgrad family. I was born in Fort Campbell, KY and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. The US is different than Europe but since I have been in Danilovgrad the Strowbridge family has had a smooth transition. Coach Borivoje Stanisic
is one of the main reasons my transition has been so smooth. Coach has been a tremendous help and established a life long relationship. Also, its great to have teammates like Rickey Young (205-F/C-90, agency: BBEH Cokrlija, college: W.Virginia Tech) and Milovan Skendzic (193-G-92) that make sure we felt welcomed. If it had not been for these great group of guys and google translate the transition may have been a tougher, but when you have a team like mine you don't have to worry about that. Also, the people of Danilovgrad are polite and friendly. I have been all over the US various places and Europe, but the hospitality this town has shown to my wife and I has been unbelievable. It is definitely a blessing to be here. We have adjusted well living in Montenegro. Although, we haven't had many inconveniences there are differences between living in the US and Europe. For example, the cost of living is more expensive in the US than Europe, and in Europe many people depend on the transit system whether its a small town/big city. Also, I have noticed the gasoline prices are more expensive in Europe and size of vehicle are drastically smaller in Europe than US. I have noticed that coffee is very big in Europe. I have even seen vending machines that will make fresh coffee for you.

I believe basketball is universal. The goal is to WIN! No matter what country you are in the goal of the game is to score more points than your opponent and stop them from scoring more points than you. The biggest difference I have seen in U.S. style of play vs European basketball is the speed of the game is faster and you have more spacing in the U.S. to create plays. For example, in the NBA/NBA D League you have defensive 3 seconds. D3 doesn't allow anyone to stand no longer than 3 seconds in the paint for help side. This is different because in Europe you can plant a shot blocker in the lane to limit penetration. Another key difference is the physicality of the game. I have experience that its more physical in Europe for imports than it is in the U.S.

A similarity of the Montenegrin league and the leagues I have played in the U.S. are there aren't many imports on each team. This allows the domestic players a opportunity to develop and chance to perform or they will find someone that will compete.

As a team we have been preparing for our game vs Primorje this weekend. The intensity of practice has improved daily and we are taking steps forward to our ultimate goal. The dedication is being revealed because we have guys working out before and after practice to become better players. We must stay focused, stay united, take one game at a time, and compete for 40 minutes. We have a must win game vs Primorje today. Unfortunately, I will not be able to play until the play out but I will be the best sideline coach and supporter I can be. We will get the win but we need our 6th man there (the fans) come out and support us. We cannot do this without you guys. I look forward to the day I put on my blue and white Danilovgrad. I promise the fans we demand respect from opponents in the league. We will not back down from ANYONE. Danilovgrad will be a winning culture and when you play Danilovgrad be prepared for a heavyweight fight for 40 minutes.

Thank you for your time, hope enjoyed reading my first post and stay tuned for more updates from the Strow Show!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13 -
