Unser neuer amerikanischer Guard Will Figures freut sich riesig auf seine neue Aufgabe und sein erstes Engagement in Europa.
Er wird bereits auf eigenen Wunsch eine Woche vor Trainingsbeginn anreisen um sich an seine neue Umgebung und die Zeitumstellung zu gewöhnen.
Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, Ihm einige Fragen zu stellen:
What did you do the last year/season after finishing the College?
Last year after college my plan was to play overseas, but instead I learn a valuable lesson on trust. I put all my trust into someone that didn't have my best interest in mind and because of that I took a year off and worked harder than I ever had before. Constant basketball workouts so that I will be exactly where I want to in the future.
What did you study?
I studied communications and sociology.
Why would you like to play overseas?
I would love to play overseas because not only am I playing the sport I love, I also get to see part of the world that most people cannot experience.
What is your plan concerning Basketball for the future?
The plan for my future with basketball is to grow and become a better player on the court and better person off the court. I would like to continue playing basketball because it is my passion and craft and I will like see that through till the end.
Are you excited to come over?
I am very excited to come over and play for NOMA Iserlohn. I can't wait to experience everything the country and city has to offer for me. I am eager to meet everyone as well.
What is your main interest besides Basketball?
My main interest besides basketball is the people close to me that support throughout my life.
Do you know something about German Basketball?
I do not know much about German basketball other than it is one of the best places to play.
