Byron Allen
Byron Allen (203-C-81, college: Northwestern St.) former player of Oita Heat Devils (Japan-BJ League) gave an interview:

Why you decided to be a pro player.

I decided to play Pro Basketball because of my love for the game of Basketball and having the physical abilities to play on a high level. Having a high motor, being a scoring threat that requires a double team, great defensively on positions 1-5, high IQ, and being a leader.

There are many players without a job fighting for the same spots, how hard is to wait for your ideal offer and not take the first that comes up considering that the next one may not come soon.

It is always difficult waiting for a job especially when you are working hard to keep yourself in top shape. Most time you will get several offers though. Pray about it and God will lead you down the right path.

Which was the best game you had in your career so far?

The best game I would say in my Career was my first season overseas in Taiwan with DaCin winning the Championship in game seven. I cried because of all the hard work, fatigue, discipline, dedication, sacrifice had come to an end and we held the Golden Trophy. It was amazing!

Tell us your strong point and your weakness in your game.

My strong point is my ability to get great position for rebounding, scoring, passing, and my ability to quickly adjust to the opponent. My weakness is people stereotype me and think I cannot shoot the ball from the floor! Like your average typical Big guy! Lol...

Which player was the hardest opponent to play against?

My toughest opponent is a tough question to answer, because I've played against some really good players over my career... I say J. R. Sakuragi, Jeff Gibbs, Ricci Philip, Xavier Gibson, Ron Hale, Quincy Davis, Devonne Giles, Dionisio Gomez, and Ramos Peter.

Tell about the best teammates you had so far.

I have been blessed to have some really good teammates with DaCin (Taiwan), AlAhli (Saudi), Mitsubishi (Japan), Taiwan Beer (Taiwan), and Oita (Japan). 2012-2013 Taiwan Beer we really had to bond together even closer and stay mentally tough due to a really bad one year Coach.

Which coach you want to thank because he made you better player.

My first two seasons with coach Chiu Jack of DaCin were amazing and he was an experienced coach who has coached in several countries. That staff in 2008-2010 was amazing along with coach Roman, Bird. The other coach was Sabit Hadzic of Bosnia National Team for eight years! The knowledge, physical training, and skill training is still probably the best I have experienced in the world so far. Those friendships will never be broken.

Role player in a big team or star in a smaller one?

I have played the role player on a big team winning Championships and a star on a smaller team losing while having a great statistical year. The situation changes from season to season. I like to show what I can do offensively, but I like winning more!

Which is your favorite basketball shoe? Which one you wear now?

My favorite shoes were Tim Duncan's which were very comfortable, but I am an Adidas man anyway. Their size 19 are more comfortable.

What plans you have for the future?

I plan on giving Pro Basketball another good push if the opportunity is right. I'm healthy and experienced so that's a blessing. I took off this 2014-15 season for my wife's pregnancy. We are having our first boy in a few days.
