By Mohammad Ahmadi - Eurobasket Iran
Sitting Here at 3 am on the Rooftop of the Merter Green Park Hotel and Resort in Istanbul Turkey With Mr.Gentry Lewis (206-F/C-81, college: Philander Smith) (206-F/C-81, college: Philander Smith)

So Lets Get Started Where Should I Begin:

Hello Gentry how are you in these days?

I am fine just grinding in the gym trying to get back. Working hard training to get in better shape basically. Working is how I will describe it re-inventing myself in other words...

So that's all you have been doing as of late?

Basically trying to get back in the swing of things and get my feet back under me and get reacquainted into the basketball world..

Why did you take a break from basketball was it because of injury or something especially after the season you had in Saudi Arabia something close to a triple double I recall 23 ppg 15rpg and 7apg why now or then rather?

No injury my body is great. I took a break because I felt I needed to take advantage of a business opportunity that presented itself and also Real Estate School. Even with the Passion and Love I have for the game of basketball I wanted to try something different for a season. I love basketball but I took a risk to take time off after a good season to put myself in a better position for my life after basketball. Maybe it was a mistake or bad timing but I have to move on and continue pursuing my opportunities to do what I love and thats play basketball.The good thing was I never stopped working out or being around the game.I just wasnt on a team .

Understandable and Commendable so it took a while to accomplish or did other things delay your return?

Well honestly both.. Getting the business up and running took longer than i expected.It required me to be involved alot in the beginning of the project.I also had a very tragic death in the family that I had to deal with. I think that took a big part out me and in turn made me look at life different. But with the help of God and my family through all of that stuff I became a stronger man.

I know MR Agency in partner with Mega Sport Agency in Italy are working with some teams here in Middle Eastern Countries as well as Europe on securing a deal.Correct?

Yes they are working hard to get a deal lined up for this season.I know that teams are starting to make changes and also finding new sponsors at this time so Im hopeful that ill be signing somewhere pretty soon.. I'm ready to actually get back on the court and experience the camaraderie of being on a team but mainly helping the team that signs me win basketball games.

Some people believe that you are Pure Position 4 , that means that you are completely a Power Forward, what do you think?

I'm not agreed, I have been playing a whole season as CENTER , and if needed Power Forward. I use my big body and my experience in playing Center so I am a PowerForward/Center player.
Yes, I agree with you because I have seen your game playing as Center all the time and you did really good.

Gentry thanks for your time and good luck this season wherever you may land I know you will do well

No problem and Thank you Mohammed.
