When Adam Smith arrived in Bilbao in September, his role was not an easy one. He was recruited to Mirabilla as a substitute for the team’s star Goudelock., a player with huge pedigree who suffered a serious injury in a preseason friendly after being passed over to the Lakers. He was landing on unknown ground, though at least he had the support of Kaisar, with whom he had met the previous year in Israel’s Hapoel Holon. Another milestone in Nomad’s career that crossed him too France, Italy, Turkey, Poland and Greece. But with the passage of time, he has settled into a humble club and has become the scoring reference of the Ponsernau team along with Håkansson.
An athlete with a master’s degree in music production at Georgia Tech, in 2019 he recorded Across the Pond, a ten-song hip-hop album that can be heard on platforms such as Spotify and idolizes Allen Iverson, who like him There is only one boy. , lots of tattoos and long hairstyles. “Everything is going well for me. Throughout the season you know there are going to be ups and downs, but it’s a normal process, we try to stay positive. Everything changes quickly, you have a lot to think about.” There is no time. We are working hard and trying to find the right rhythm as a team”, he reflected. Avoid comparisons with Goudelock, who is in the final stages of recovery from a patellar tendon injury in his left knee. “He’s a great player, I know him well, we are friends, we were friends before. But I have to do my job and find a way to win games.” During his college days at Georgia Tech, he shared a locker room with former man in Black Ben Lammers.
The guard from Jonesboro (Georgia) was involved in a key action in Bilbao Basket’s defeat on Tuesday in the Champions League against Tenerife. Selin was not the kind of player to raise his hand and make a slight impact on the Finnish player’s face. “Tenerife is a great team, they are defending the Champions League title. I know Salin, I faced him last season in the Champions League Final Four, he puts everything on the court, he is very tough and In many actions he shows cruelty, whether he is punished or not is another matter. It’s extremely competitive,” says Smith. Surne’s physical problems caused him to alternate between point guard and guard positions, and he acknowledged that he learned how the team plays to increase the chemistry needed, “I try to contribute where necessary.” I try.” Rivals already know that canceling Hackenson and Smith cost them a lot, as inside play produces very little. So sometimes you have to face two against one. “Each team has its own defined approach. I don’t feel uncomfortable if they double tag me, it gives us an advantage in other positions.”
Haakson, who missed the last two matches in Santiago and Tenerife due to muscle problems, is expected to return the next day. “He is a fantastic player, he works very hard, I didn’t know him. He has earned my full respect. He has a lot of experience in ACB and being around him has helped me learn and gain confidence. All eyes now turn to Granada’s visit to Miribilla on Saturday to break the poor run of results.”Our mindset is to go out and win whoever the opponent is.” They return home and that drives them, with the public as their engine. “It’s unbelievable what they give us both in the Champions League and in the ACB,” concluded Smith.
