Interview with David Weaver - Jul 11, 2017

David Weaver
David Weaver (207-C-87, college: Wake Forest) former player of Nagoya Diamond Dolphins (Japan-B League) gave an interview:

Why you decided to be a pro player.

It was always a child-hood dream to play pro basketball. I would play for hours as a young kid dreaming of the day people would come to arenas or turn on the television to watch my play. Growing up, I thought the only option was NBA, but after college I learned how great playing outside the USA could be.

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.

The basketball market is often hard to navigate. Getting an offer early in the off-season is sometimes a blessing or a curse. Knowing how unpredictable the market is with so little spots, you want to secure a job early. It is extremely hard to wait. If the offer is ideal, some people pass on it hoping for something better, but that is a tough gamble. I have played both sides of this situation. It's a frustrating process sometimes.

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

I think the best overall game I had was last season in Turkey. I was playing for Afyon and we played Acibadem at home. Winning this game was very important for our playoff chances. I was on fire this game. I did not miss a shot all night, until my last free-throw in the final minute of the match. I finished with 27pts 10rebs and 2blocks, shooting 9-9 (2fg) 2-2 (3fg) 3-4 (ft). The whole city was proud of our performance. I'll remember this match forever.

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