BLAKE OPTIMISM FOR BRITISH BASKETBALL PART 1 - Sep 8, 2012


POSTED BY:

Anthony
Martin
Paul Blake is one of the most influential men in British Basketball and few, if any, are better placed to comment on the health of the game in Britain. Blakes work load is admirable as he somehow combines being Managing Director of Britains leading franchise, Newcastle Eagles, with being Chairman of the British Basket League.

On the eve of another exciting season Eurobasket spoke with Blake on both the fronts that he leads and invests his time and effort in.

So, Paul putting your Eagles Managing Directors hat on first how do you think the Eagles are looking as they head in to the season?

"I think its a very different team to last year. I think once we finish recruiting we'll be a bit deeper and as a result stronger than last year. But it is very different. I don't think its going to take too long to bed in but I think the supporters are going to have to accept a slightly different style of basketball from what they've seen the last couple of years. It's going to be a very talented team, no question.

The biggest changes from the outside look like the replacement of Paul Gause (180-G-86, agency: I.D.S. Law, college: Seton Hall) and Andrew Thomson (205-F-84, agency: JEMsports, college: Catawba) with Damon Huffman (186-G-85) and Kareem Maddox (202-F/C-89, college: Princeton) who are different types of players to their predecessors?

"Damon is clearly a team leader and we've possibly missed that for several years. I've said often that we've never really replaced T J Walker in that respect and Damon might be the closest we've had in that respect. Kareem from his first year as a pro-basketball player last year is a guy that can do a lot of different things like Andy did. So, we might not see a lot of a difference there in a lot of respects."

And Anthony Martin (186-G-80)? Probably a signing that's come in a little under the radar but the backup point guard that Eagles have been searching for, for a while?

Hes a quality back-up guard and there are some teams in the BBL where he could probably start. Certainly he had offers to go elsewhere but he wanted to come to The Eagles and that's a good sign. He's a solid sixth man. Fab (Flournoy)'s made it clear this year that he personally wants to stay off the point as much as possible and with having the two new options this year that should happen.

So, excited for the forthcoming Eagles season?

Yes, I always am but I have that bit of caution as well until we see how it all beds in. One thing people shouldn't do is compare this years team with last years. Last year was last year and it was great. Now we have to start again and see where that takes us.

In part 2 of the interview Paul talks about his hopes for The British Basketball League going forward.

Manchester drop curtain on Senior Playoff Finals with D1M win - 1 day ago
Manchester retained their D1M Playoff title after a comfortable 73-53 win over Loughborough. A poor 2nd quarter where the Riders fell behind and shot just 2/15 from the floor proved too much to overcome against a well drilled and talented Magic side. Unable to call upon the injured Josh Ward-Hibbert, Loughborough struggled to find answers on offence for the duration. With the game meandering through the 2nd half, an altercation between Lee Goldsborough and Jonas Dieterich during a loose b...   [read more]

Kent add playoff glory to league winning season - 1 day ago
In a tightly contested game that was fit for a final, Kent managed to outlast rivals Thames Valley 90-87. Consistently playing catch up in the final quarter after a poor 3rd period, the Cavs rallied from a double digit deficit before coming up just short on the final buzzer. Trailing by 3 with less than 10 seconds on the clock, Thames Valley had one last roll of the dice to try and force the game into OT. Inbounding the ball to star man Martelle McLemore (197-G/F-88, college: W.Michigan),...   [read more]

Middlesex LTBC take D3 Playoff win after epic battle - 1 day ago
In a Final that should be remembered as an instant classic, both Team Birmingham Elite and Middlesex LTBC left everything out on the court in an attempt to secure the D3M Playoff Championship. Middlesex eventually came out on top, 63-62, but the result was in the balance right up until the final buzzer. In a fixture that had everything, the crowd were treated to a real spectacle to end Playoff Saturday at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester. With the score line separa...   [read more]
