Sakakini
Sakakini Sani (204-C-88) is one of the rare Palestinians born & raised in Palestine who got the chance to play professionally abroad, he recently signed a contract with Qingdao Double Star for one season , the team plays in the CBA the first league in China.
After this great achievement as a Palestinian Basketball player, we got the chance to interview him to talk about the game we all love.


o When & How did you start playing Basketball and Who inspired you?
I started playing basketball when i was 6 years old,my father is the one who inspired me, he was a basketball player himself, and is also a basketball coach till today.

oGrowing up and playing in Palestinian Leagues & Palestinian National Team moving to Jordanian Leagues and now in Chineese Leagues - what do you feel is different and what does it add to your career?
I have experienced a huge difference in the three leagues I played in, for instance in Palestine the level is quiet modest and there are no professional players.
In Jordan the level is much better and the players salaries are higher, also on the court there is more contact with the other players, not to mention the chances to participate in international tournaments are higher.
China on the other hand is known to have the best basketball league in Asia and has an excessive number of professional players, they play on a total different level which is higher and more professional.
I have gained a lot of experience and exposure throughout my journey especially from China.

oWhere do you see your basketball career going?
I intend to keep moving forward and reach higher levels, my dream has always been to be a professional player and still is, I aspire to play in the best basketball leagues out there.

o How does it feel to be one of the rare Palestinians playing professionally in China? What did it take?
My feeling is undescribable; to be the only Palestinian playing professionally in China is a huge achievement. It didnt come easily, It took me a lot to reach where I am right now, and I worked really hard.

o What advise can you tell our Palestinian Basketball Players?
Dream big, and work to reach your goals, all things are possible just keep your head in the game and practice till you drop
