Q & A with Marcus Williams - Apr 8, 2012

The CBA's most surprising team, and finish was undoubtedly from the Shanxi ZhongYu Brave Dragons, led by super talented swingman, Marcus Williams. I caught up with Marcus when he returned from his MVP season with Shanxi and asked him a few questions. Here is our interview.

Q. Now that the 2011-12 CBA season is officially over, what are you taking away from this season?

Marcus: The CBA is really a growing league and the talent local and foreign gets better and better every year. This season was really exciting with some parody and some big upsets it really made this season one to remember and it was really a pleasure being apart of it.

Q. With the NBA lockout this summer, were you ever worried about your job security?

Marcus: This past summer i felt like i had played well enough the past season to have an opportunity to play in the CBA for another season. Not knowing what team i would be playing for or if i would even be in china was tough. Also there was a lot of things up in the air with the NBA lockout so i could never get too comfortable. I just wanted to land in a good situation if the basketball is good I'm good.

Q. In most of the fans and CBA eyes, you were the clear cut MVP of the Foreigners, what do you think about that?

Marcus: Its definitely a honor and there were so many great players this season in the CBA. This season i wanted to challenge myself for sure. This season was about the city of Taiyuan, The fans , the Shanxi basketball club and us have a historical season. it was great to be apart of it and my teammates and coaches made it easy for me to be comfortable, play my game and be successful.

Q. The success your team, Shanxi had this season was unparalleled, what contributed to the teams success?

Marcus: We really just got better. The season started of tough for us but we had some great leadership from our chinese players and me and charles and we brought things together. Our big men got a lot better and played a lot more physical. We built team chemistry and really made each other better.

Q. Your old team, Zhejiang C. signed arguably one of the biggest names in CBA history, in JR Smith instead of bringing you back, were you surprised?

Marcus: I was a little surprised since i had been there for the past two seasons and we had a good years that past season. But CBA is like the NBA its a business teams and players make decisions and thats just a part of it.

Q. Finally, what do you think about the Shanxi fans and CBA fans in general compared to the ones in the states?

Marcus: I have got to say Shanxi has the best fans i have ever seen or heard in my basketball career. It was standing room only at every home game and the support and love they showed us through out the season was unbelievable. The fans in China really love basketball its a big reason why i love playing in china it really reminds of me the atmosphere in college basketball games.

Thank you for your time Marcus, and congratulations on your success this season!!!
