Interview with Chris Garnett - Feb 9, 2012

EUROBASKET HAS THE PLEASURE OF SITTING DOWN WITH FIBA ASIAN VETERAN CHRIS GARNETT, RECENT ADDITION TO TOCHIGI BREX IN THE JAPANESE JBL. THE EXPERIENCED BIG MAN WAS SIGNED TO HELP SOLIDIFY THE POST AND PROVIDE LEADERSHIP TO THE CLUB BY VIRTUE OF HIS SUCCESS IN THE REGION. WE SAT DOWN BRIEFLY WITH LAST YEAR'S ALL ASEAN LEAGUE BIG MAN.

EU: Chris, it is such a pleasure seeing you now in Japan's Top League. How have you found it here so far?
CG: Thank you. First, I must say that Japan is an incredibly beautiful country, and then I must say that Japans Top League has a lot of talent. Basketball is certainly up and rising here and Japan should be recognized around the world for having very competitive basketball in this country. Talented players like Yuta Tabuse, the first and only Japanese player to play in the NBA, J.R. Sakuragai, Chris Moss, Ivan McFarlin, and many others right here in Japan who can easily compete and prevail in top-notch American, European, and Asian leagues.

EU: We see that the Club opted to go with a savvy vet to start the second half of the season. How smoothly or not has the addition to the team been?
CG: Transitioning to a new Club can prove to be a bit rough at times due to the number of plays that I had to learn in a short timeframe, as well as learning team members style of play, basketball habits, and personalities. Its about meshing and bonding with your team members to create a winning chemistry on and off the court. I hope to be an asset to my Club by bringing the experience, work ethics, and skills needed as the backbone of any winning team.

EU: We can see from the stats that you are seemingly not getting much the on the floor, although each time you play 10 minutes you are only 1 rebound or 1 point away from a double double. Have you any thoughts on this?
CG: Coach Palmer, who is an outstanding coach, has certain plays that he likes to run and those plays do not necessarily call for a lot of interaction on my part right now. The JBL limits foreign players to only one in the game at any given time, and Ivan (the other foreign player) does a great job when I am not in the game. So, for every minute that I am in the game, I try to produce like we are up 1 with 30 seconds left in the game. Head Coach knows best, and I am hopeful that my playing time will increase.

EU: From a mathematical standpoint, you are averaging 1 point and 1 rebound for every minute and a half played. That should equate into All Star numbers given there is adequate time on the floor. Is the club still familiarizing themselves to you?
CG: I agree. That should equal to some big numbers, and I am optimistic that I will be given adequate time on the floor. In the meanwhile, the familiarity between me and the Club has been solidified.

EU: I have heard and read quite a bit of things coming from the ASEAN League questioning your return there. Have any of the media, press or fans from last season reached out to you? Seeing that you are now in the Top League in the Region, what are your thoughts on returning to familiar haunts?
CG: While the media or press or fans have not reached out to me, I thoroughly enjoyed playing in the ASEAN League. If the opportunity presented itself with the right circumstances, there is a possibility that I might consider it. The ASEAN fans and coaches were some of the greatest. I can only hope that playing in the Top League in the Region will have its rewards.

EU: Seven rounds and fourteen games remaining in this second half of the season, do you feel that the Club can make the needed adjustments to reach the playoffs? Currently Tochigi is sitting only 2 games behind Panasonic for the 4th place in the League. Having seen the Clubs here, what are your thoughts on reaching 4th?
CG: There is a tremendous amount of talent in this League, and everybody is playing tough, hard ball to make the playoffs. For every best foot put forward by the other Club, Tochigi has got to bring one better. I am ready, willing, and able to make any adjustments needed to help take Tochigi to the playoffs and to the championship. As a Team and Club with a smart Head Coach, I know we can do it.

EU: There has also been talk of a spring/summer signing in Latin America for you. How much interest do you have in another 10-11 month stint of professional play? Last year, we saw you depart the ASEAN League and finish the regular season in Turkey only then to depart for Qatar for Cup competition.
CG: Im laughing hysterically because the rumor mill is going 150 mph. Under the right circumstances, another 10-11 months of play would be very much welcomed. I can easily adapt to most situations. Right now, I have several irons in the fire as far as the spring and summer and I cant pinpoint exactly where I will be or what I will be doing. After the JBL season ends, I will focus more on which direction I will be headed.

EU: Would you like to leave anything with us as you head into the stretch run?
CG: I cant leave without giving a shout-out to my fan base and to my friends in distant lands where I have traveled. I want to say thank you to all of my wonderful fans and friends who have given of their time and energy to come together and support me and my teammates now and over the years. You put the F in Fans when it comes to loyalty, support, and commitment and I love you all. And Sports Fans, I read in the Health Prevention magazine that there are actual health benefits of being a sports fan. Being a sports fan inspires you to get active; watching Live Sports is a workout in itself; you will live longer; its good for your relationships; and it will make you smarter. So, until we see each other again, Good Health To You!

EUROBASKET WOULD LIKE TO WISH CHRIS THE BEST AS HE MAKES THE PUSH FOR STRONG PLAYOFF POSITION IN THE JAPANESE JBL. WE KNOW THAT ONLY GREAT THINGS WILL COME WHERE HE IS CONCERNED. WE ARE ANXIOUS TO SEE THE TOCHIGI CLUB AND THE 2ND HALF OF THE JBL. BEST WISHES CHRIS!
