Alt om NBA har laget en presentasjon av de nye utenlandske spillerne i BLNO. Her er våre nye siden sist sesong:
Kenneth Carpenter, USA
I grew up in Detroit, Michigan. Before coming to Norway I played my first year professionally in the United Kingdom British basketball league for the Glasgow Rocks.
Before playing professionally I played four years of Div 1 basketball at Cleveland State University. The welcome In Norway has been good. I’m a really laid back guy so I don’t do much outside of basketball.
Best player I’ve ever played with Rob Edwards at Cleveland State University. Favorite NBA team is the Los Angeles Lakers and my favorite player Paul George.
Nestor Lasuncion, Spania
So I grew up in Barcelona, Spain. Started to play basketball on the park, where I still go every summer to still play 3v3 (a big shoutout to my 3v3 community Streetball Barcelona Sants), and very quickly got involved with a club back home, where I properly learned how to play. Then because of family reasons I had to move to Toledo, a city close to Madrid, and over there I developed even more. At the age of 14 I broke my right ankle, had surgery and almost couldn’t play basketball anymore, but against all odds, I got back at it and got the chance to be coached by two of the greatest basketball coaches in Spain. After a while, I had to take a gap year, taking care of stuff back home, and I got a scholarship to study in univeristy and play ball in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
Over there I got involved with the Glasgow Rocks, that play in the BBL. My last year met Bouna Ndaye, got great friendship with him and he pretty much convinced me and Fyllingen Basket to reach an agreement. That’s why I’m here. The welcome here has been great because everybody has been trying to make me feel loved. As well, I knew my teammate Kenny Carpenter from before, so was an even easier way to fit in.
The best players I’ve ever played with…one of them has to be Bouna, another one is Kenny, also Nate Britt (won the NCAA tournament with UNC Tar Heels) when I played with him two seasons ago in Glasgow. Another player is Kieron Achara, an all time greatest of British Basketball. Daniel Perez, who still plays ACB in Manresa, he has the all time record of assists in an ACB game (16). I know him from playing 3v3 in the park. And there’s a lot many more players I wish I could name, but the list would go so far. Kofi Josephs, Earl Brown Jr., Hayden Lescault, Nelson Martinez, Larry Ewulu, Bantu Borroughs, Gareth Murray, Luis Figueroa, and many many more, as well as coaches.
My favorite NBA team…I can’t say I like any in particular, I rather watch Euroleague. And NBA players…Luka Doncic, Giannis, Mike Conley.
