Pekka
Salminen
Eurobasket. proudly presents an interview with a coach that is well known to Swedish basketball fans - Pekka Salminen Coach Salminen has won two Swedish Championships with Solna Vikings in 2003 and 2008 and also has a silver from 2009 and is curently the assistant coach on the Finnish national team that finished an impressive ninth at the last Euro Championships.

Hello Coach Pekka,


1.How are you? Hows the season so far?
-Life is good, team playing well enough at the moment. We had a nightmare season with injuries and illness, but we are still in the fight for playoffs spot (four best teams-the winner will qualify for the Finnish league. Our position is 3rd right now)

2. How was your experience in Sweden? What are your best moments?
-Everybody who involved with sports understands this: winning. Two championships with great players and staff. But still have to say my last team in Solna (2009), also hit big time with injuries and problems is a great moment as well. Won the q-finals 3-2, semis 3-2 and lost the finals 3-4, we did not win it, but those guys were plain great

3. How Swedes are different from Finish basketball players/coaches and filosophies?
-Basketball is basketball.
-In Sweden the thing was teamwork, at least for me. In Finland at the club level there is a lot of smart X&O guys that run their stuff. And there are way more foreign players and coaches in Sweden, Coaches and players with different backround make the game more varied, versatile.
-A huge difference can be found at the national team level: There is "our game"-playbook in Finland that goes all the way through U14 to senior national teams. so all the national teams play the same way.
-Sweden has a lot of talent, also have to respect the fact that they have most of their youth teams competing in A-groups

4. What was your role as an assistant to HC Dettman on Finish National Team?
-A great Coaching Staff starts with a good boss: Dettmann. I have been involved more with the defensive part, but the other coaches Jukka Toijala and Lassi Tuovi have done their share with D also.

5.In the National Team, you were responsible for everything on team defense? Goals/expectations to repeat success at this years EC in Slovenia?

-Tough group...for everybody. We have to remember that we played the qualifications without our main PG Teemu Rannikko (Petteri Koponen, U OK also) . He will be back and we will be ready

6. What are your plans to coach abroad again? Rivalry with Sweden (will meet in EC in grou play in Slovenia)?

-All depends on my personal life, kids and stuff. Loved Sweden, so.... Sweden-we will enjoy this game, when ever Sverige and Suomi play, any sport, it is a great game!

7. Next Finnish star male player to move abroad and play proffessional?

-Carl Lindbom. 206cm, position 3, works harder than anybody. On the other hand he has already played some in Germany, so a clear Euro Rookie...have a look at Joonas Lehtoranta

8. How is basketball doing n Finland? Easy to recruit young players to the sport? Clubs stable econimcly or also feeling crisis?

-BB is a small sport. Our only spectator sport is Icehockey and together with football they dominate at youth level, thinking about how many kids play the sport. Basketball has gotten more and more publicity after our Eurobasket success, but the media coverage is still relatively modest. Biggest problem is that there are NO clubs in the Finnish league from the metropolitan Helsinki area. This is of course cause of economical issues. My Former teams Espoon Honka and ToPo were kicked from the league due to economical stuff. It looks like the financial part is Ok at the countryside, smaller cities where the team can be the most important sports team in the area and they get the local media involved. BTW : Look at Joensuun Katajas success at Euro-challenge

9. What would be your advice to young coaches?

-Listen to older ones, they may have forgotten something, but they most likely still know a lot!

10. What difference does it make average player from great player?

-The fire, the dedication.

Thank you for your time Coach Salminen. Eurobasket and Tamara Ruzic wish you a lot of success for the rest of the season and in play offs.
