Antonio Russell of Kristiansand Pirates interviewed by Eurobasket - Oct 27, 2010

Greg's Articles

Eurobasket: Antonio Russell (183-G-84, college: W.Carolina), Congratulations on your excellent start to your season! After 7 games, you are leading the BLNO scoring with 3O.7 points per game, and have helped the Pirates to already win 3 games in league play.

Antonio: Thank you, I am enjoying playing in Norway, its a bit different from Germany where I played for the past two seasons (Aachen Muskateers Regionaliga West), Id say the BLNO allows more physical play than the German leagues do, but I feel like Im on top of my game and helping my teammates as well.

Eurobasket: Thats interesting, are you saying that the BLNO allows more fouling or hand-checking, this type of thing?

Antonio: Well I seem to be attracting a crowd when I have the ball, and maybe the defense in Norway is more aggressive on the perimeter than I am used to. But Ive made adjustments and I am thriving under Coach Mobbs system where its basically attack the basket on offense, so we are utilizing my shooting and penetration skills effectively so far Id say.

Eurobasket: Nice, how are your teammates feeling about you being the top scorer in most games?

Antonio: My teammates are great, they realize I have the abiity to break down the defense and either dish or score, our main focus is on getting wins, I dont get caught up in how many points Im scoring and neither do my teammates. In the end, If were getting the w it doesnt matter who scored what. Coach (Dan Mobbs ) has a nice system that rewards maximum effort from our players, including me, and its all focused on finding a way to win. Right now my role is to break down the defense and create scoring opportunities for myself and for my teammates, thats what a good point guard does. In our last game (Gimle) my top assignment or role was actually defense, and even though I scored 42, Coach pointed out after the game that my role defensively had more importance in the win than me scoring points.

Eurobasket: So Antonio, things are looking up for you and the Pirates, what are your plans for the future?

Antonio: Well right now Im enjoying life in Norway, its a beautiful country and although its hard living away from my wife and newborn son (Asante), Im focused on helping the Pirates win games by playing hard and doing the right thing both on and off the court. Who knows what will happen for the rest of this season and next year? Ive just gotta take it as it comes and leave it all on the court, thats the way Ive always operated, no point changing now.

Eurobasket: Ok, Antonio Russell of Kristiansand Pirates (BLNO) thanks so much for your time and best of luck to you in the coming games!
