Tony Weeden (183-SG-83, college: Chicago St.) former player of Keravnos Strovolou (Cyprus-Division A) gave an interview:

Why you decided to be a pro player.

I decided to become a basketball player because its the one thing that felt natural to me. The one thing that I enjoyed doing and the one thing that helped me get through any tough time in my life. Basketball is just my first love so I wanted to make a career out of it. Everybody says you should enjoy your work so thats just what Im doing.

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.

With so many people fighting for the same jobs and guys taking less money, its hard for you to not jump at the first offer because you never really know whats coming next. On top of that you have to make sure the situation and style of play is right for you to be successful in and that makes it even harder. The offseason brings a lot of mixed emotions with the nervousness and excitement of where this games takes you next. I just feel like I know my worth and Im confident because of the time I put into the game and you usually get what you put in. But I live by faith so Im sure everything will turn out ok.

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

Thats tough to say for me because I have a few that I feel like could be considered my personal best. But if I had to choose a recent one it would be the last game I played in the 2013-14 season in Cyprus. A 39pt 4ast 4reb game is one that you remember just because you feel like everything you imagine when your in the gym alone is happening. It just felt like all the decisions I made happened to be the right ones.

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

Im the type of player that is never satisfied so I would say I could work on my whole game overall. I feel like you can never stop getting better. My strong points are that Im a tough hard nose guard that applies pressure and can shoot the ball really well along with being shifty and being able to create.

Which player was the hardest opponent to play against?

If I had to pick a player that I stood out to me, it would be Brandon Heath. I say him because he was a player that was pretty much the main reason we lost in the finals in Bulgaria 2013-14 season. He just flat out got it done scoring and making his teammates better.

Tell about the best teammates you had so far.
