Interview with Rayyan's Marlon Parmer - Apr 22, 2008

Marlon
Parmer

A day after Al Rayyan's Emir Cup victory, point guard Marlon Parmer (191-G-80, agency: HM Sports Agency, college: Ky Wesleyan) kindly sat down with me for an interview.

Amir: What's up Marlon? Congratulations on your victory yesterday.
Marlon: Thanks Amir. It feels good.

What made you decide to come back to Qatar?
Well, I felt that Rayyan would be a good situation for me and I felt that I could come in and help this team.


I have to ask you then: How would you rate the competition here in Qatar:
Overall, Qatar has a pretty competitive league. I believe that the level is not as good as it could be because of the one-import rule, but I don'
t believe that I've played in a more athletic league.


You were in Estonia earlier this year. How was your experience there?
Life was great there and the people were very nice. The playing, though, was not where I expected it to be. On the whole, it was a great experience.


So why did you leave?
The team felt that they could save money. It was a business move.


When you left, your former team BC Kalev/Cramo Tallinn were undefeated in the league and in first place. However, since then, they've lost three crucial games and ended up losing the league title to rivals Tartu likool/Rock. What did that tell you?
It makes you understand your worth as a player. You feel bad for the players because they are good people, but I saw it coming because Rock is a great team.

Then you come to a Rayyan team that lost the league title to Al Jaysh Army SC and you were expected to come in to help them win the Heir Apparent and Kings Cups, right away. Did you feel any added pressure?
Sure, of course I felt pressure, even though I have played under similiar circumstances before. There were nights where I couldn't sleep because I was anxious, but with leader like Yaseen Ismail (204-F-80), it makes the adjustment that much easier.


So you play your first game, you foul out and Rayyan loses. What was going through your mind at that moment?
Not only did I lose, I lost to my former team (Qatar Club). I was a bit down, which is normal, but I knew that it was just a matter of time before it clicked. The only problem was that we didn't have much time and I was just hoping that it would be sooner than later.


You got a rematch with Qatar in the finals of the Heir Apparent Cup, but this time you guys got the better of them when it counted most, with you scoring 23 points and playing an great game overall. Tell me about that.
It felt great! My teammates were great. It was a team effort and when it was money time we knew what we had to do.


But come on; don't tell me that this victory wasn't that much sweeter because it was Qatar.

D1 Round 10: Al Gharafa beats Al Sadd in a derby game - 7 days ago
The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Doha: Al Gharafa (#2) and Al Sadd (#7). Al Sadd was smashed at home by 21 points 62-83 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Al Sadd. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 6-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 83-62. Al Gharafa looked well-organized offensively handing out...   [read more]
