Interview with player Tiras Wade - Sep 16, 2018

Tiras Wade

Tiras Wade (200-F-81, college: La-Lafayette) former player of Saitama Broncos (Japan-B League D3) in an old interview:

Why you decided to be a pro player.

Since I started playing basketball at 12yrs old the NBA was a dream of mine. My junior year of college after reaching the NCAA tournament and avg. 20ppg and getting on the radar opportunities came that would place me in a position to do just that. Unfortunately I did not get drafted but proceeded to play overseas for what has been 10yrs now.

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 very difficult these years in comparison to when I first came out 10yrs ago. There are lot of veteran guys who have excellent resumes with NBA and high level experience still waiting and possibly missing the whole season. I have made the mistake in the past and maybe even this year of turning down pretty good offers in hopes of getting the value you are actually worth in comparison to your production. One thing I learned is its better often to take what is on the table early because those teams that offer you then are the ones who want you the most and will be willing to pay you more most often.

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


Thats a hard one, I just came off of a 30pt game that I would regard as a sweet game because I beat my former team Ittihad to be in tie for 1st place with a chance to win it out right this friday with a win over ansar. In terms of best game statistically it would have to be my 41pt game in italy or 48pt game in phillipines but my most memorable is the 37pt game against NC State that I held the record in their arena until steph curry broke it while playing for davidson university.

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


I would have to say my strong point would have to be my versatility. Being a big shooting guard and being able to play multiple positions. I have been played at spots ranging from the point guard to power forward being able to blow past bigger defenders and post up smaller ones. Physically and skillfully at 33 I'd like to think I don't have any weaknesses as every year you work to fill holes in your game. One attribute that I wish I could increase would be the ability to play better above the rim.

Which player was the hardest opponent to play against?

That's a real tough one, I would have to say professionally Andy Panko would probably be the toughest matchup I had defensively. While in the semi-finals to go to acb his team beat out me and breogan to move back up. He was another big guard even taller and bigger than me at the time and he had poise that enables him to still at his age dominate that league.

Tell about the best teammates you had so far.

Best teammates I have had by far came while I was at breogan in Devin Davis and Maurice Jeffers. Then I was the younger american and they were the older ones and they took me under their wing and taught time a lot of lessons about being successful in this profession.

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