What's up Eurobasket Family,

My name is Kristin Joyner Center for the Gusinje Strsljen. Also known as Kris. I decided to take on the blog for many reasons,one I love the Internet and I also wanted to share my experiences with everyone.

Although my stay here in Plav has only been a week and a few days, it's been a quite interesting one. Dealing with two snow storms and a power outage that was a week and a day long. Big adjustment for a city boy like my self coming way from the capital of the world in my eyes NEW YORK CITY. Where everything is so accessible . Besides all that I am making the best of my stay here in Plav , Montenegro. The people are really friendly, they respect that I came from so far to play for their town. So far I feel welcomed like I've been staying here my whole life. I am truly grateful and appreciative for all the love I received this far. I honestly can't wait to suit up and ball out for the Gusinje Strsljen, Plav and the country of Montenegro.

Stay tuned for my future blogs.

Peace and love

Teamwork make the dream work!- Feb.28, 2013  (by Kristin)

So this weekend we matched against another zeta team who isn't doing so well record wise. Going to any game we always favored as the underdogs. I've learned that being the underdog is not always a bad thing; pressure isn't on us really it's much more on the other team. Who wants to lose to the team with zero wins. Nobody! On paper this team wasn't that much better then us as well. But we always start up slow in every game. But we manage to keep it close [read more]
Tough times don't last, Tough people do!- Feb.20, 2013  (by Kristin)

So I know I missed a week, so I have a lot to touch base on. On another note we took two more tough losses. The toughest thing for me is losing this much;coming from successful programs in the united states. Losing is something I will never settle for or sit right with me. I'm learning that each game has a valued lesson in it for me as I continue my pro career. Dealing with many trails and tribulations adjusting to life here, I use basketball as an escape goat [read more]
I'm Back - Feb.4, 2013  (by Kristin)

What's up Eurobasket fam,I'm back for my second post. Yesterday was my first home game here in Plav. It was definitely long over due, the pressure was on being that Ive been here 3 weeks and no one has seen me play a minute.The atmosphere in the gym was unreal mostly because everyone came to see me play. To my understanding that has been there biggest turn out since starting this team. We were up against Our local rival Berane who is only a 30 minute drive up the road [read more]
