Trying 2 Stay Alive - Nov 21, 2012

Cao to all my good people out here in Montenegro and hello Eurobasket. Sorry I havent blogged in a couple of weeks, I have been really busy or too tired to even think about blogging. Well let me tell you how team IBAR is doing so far being that its the clubs first time competing in the top league A1 League. After the first 5 games of the season, we are now 2-3 tied for 5th place with three other clubs. Lately we've won two games in a row one of those wins was against Lovcen at home in the first round of the Montenegro cup games, as a team we played great together a lot of my teammates really stepped up on the defensive end and made shots. Lately most of the teams are now doubling me or sending two defenders at me soon as I cross half court and when my teammates step up like they did it will be pretty tough trying to beat us, especially at home in Rozaje. For the fans, this was the first time I have seen our fans come out in full force to support what we have here in Rozaje.

I can say for myself that they are one of the main reasons why we pulled off the upset over Lovcen. And just a few days later we had our 5th league game at home against KK Center (thats like a rivalry game since we are just a hour apart from each other. The fans really packed the house that night). Center gave us a pretty tough game since they still had no wins under their belt coming in. It took us until the late 4th quarter to put them away for good, but it was a really great game. The fans were just awesome. I have never seen anything like it. They were chanting my name during the game (that had me fired up).

After the game it was like a big party outside the gym. All of the fans stayed until we came out of the locker room to show us even more support and love, they even picked me up and carried me around the parking lot for a few seconds (at that moment I really felt like a rock star lol). That one moment was something I will never forget in my life.

In the meantime Im currently still leading the league in scoring and in index points. In 5 games Im averaging 30.6mpg 22.5ppg 2.2apg 2spg and shooting a blazing shooting percentage from the field. 2ptFG 63.4% (26/41) 3ptFG 55% (11/20) FT 78.1% (25/32) Im a true believer in hard work and I can tell that it is paying off. All of those 4am wake up calls, heading to the gym while most players are probably still asleep, at the gym working on my game putting up game like shots are all paying off. I take a lot of pride in shooting and ball handling drills because as a guard if you can master both of those you will most likely always have a job playing somewhere on a professional team. You tell me, who wouldn't want a player that can knock down shots and handle the rock? To me thats a dream playmaker to have on the roster.

Before I go I want to say Happy early Thanksgiving to my family and friends back home in America and a special s/o to my home town Rosharon, Texas. I hope you all enjoy and have a safe holiday. Dont worry about me the only thing I will be missing and wanting is the honey roasted ham and turkey legs with my grandmas favorite dressing mmmmm! Yall just dont know thats some good eating, but I will be here in Montenegro grinding as usual.

God Bless!

Home Sweat Home- Dec.17, 2012  (by Eurobasket Center)

It's winter here in Rozaje the northern part of Montenegro is very cold, ICE cold if you ask me, especially being born and raised in the southern part of Texas. It sometimes snows non-stop but it's a very beautiful site to see when the tallest trees and mountains are covered in thick snow while the river water streams are slowly flowing [read more]
