Jeff Adrien Interview

Tue, 06/02/2009 - 12:20am

Hi Jeff, tell me... how did it go in Chicago?

It was cool. Being at the combine was an honor, you know. I'm able to play against some great players I'm just happy to get the opportunity to show what I can do on out there.

 
 


Jeff Adrien
 

Which trainer have you enjoyed working with most throughout the draft process?

I've been working out in San Francisco with Bob Hill And Frank Matrisciano. Bob Hill is teaching so much about the game, teaching me new moves, and I get to go up against Blake Griffin and his brother everyday. It's been great preparation out in S.F.

What are you hearing about where you might be taken and who has expressed interest in you?

I haven't really heard a whole lot about that. I just want to get in right now.

Who have you worked out with so far?

I've worked out for the Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat, and then in Houston it was a three team workout with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Memphis Grizzlies and the Boston Celtics.

How tall are you really?

I'm 6'6"1/2, with a 7'2" wingspan.

What have you worked on most from last year to this year, and right now as you prepare for the draft?

Getting stronger and working on quickness. I know I'm not going to be an incoming star. You know, I understand that, but I'm always gunna stick my nose into it and get loose balls, and I try to emphasize having fun. You got to enjoy the game. I'm working on a lot. Expanding the range on my jumper, just putting in the time.

You're looking to be in the NBA next year, in your everyday life, everyone is probably giving you advice. How do you filter all of this and who in your life has always given you advice you can count on?

I'm just trying to take it day by day. Everyday I try to work harder. My agent at Priority Sports gives me advice to get me motivated for these workouts, which helps. Friends are showing support that grew up with me in Brookline, MA. It's a long process but if you want to make it, you got to get in front of as many teams as possible, have them get to know your personality.

Okay. Let's talk about your personality. You're looked at as a guy who can add leadership and toughness to a team. Was there something about the way you were brought up that made you this way?

Growing up in Brookline - where I grew up at - it was tough sometimes. My mom was out there workin', and it wasn't easy. She'd give you a few bucks to go buy some food and you had to be smart with that money. I was out there playing with older guys, bullying you on the court, telling you you're not good enough. I'm undersized, you know, and that's always been my thing - I can't be the tallest guy on the court, but I can be the toughest.

Which NBA player did you imitate growing up?

I used to imitate the guards. Well, except for Hakeem. I was trying to be Michael Jordan, Penny Hardaway, McGrady. I used to watch watch Hakeem's moves too though, and I got a little "dream shake." I don't use it a lot, but it's there.

Who would you compare yourself to right now?

I still think I could be like Mike! No, I'm just playing. There are a lot of undersized power forwards who have had great success, and their helping me out. Craig Smith, Paul Millsap, Glen Davis, Leon Powe, Evans from Philadelphia, and in Houston they got several of those kinda guys. Those guys are opening doors for people like me, and people out there are watching that.

Alright, Jeff. Last question. Who is going to win the NBA Championship this year?

Oh man. It's up in the air. Everything's wide open as of now. Last year, you saw two top teams with Boston and L.A., but this year things are a little more balanced. I thought Boston was going to go further, but they lost to a good Orlando team. I think the team that shows the most toughness is going to take the ring.

Brown speaks well and he's

Brown speaks well and he's humble. Not to mention he knows were he came from as a basketball player. Basketball Players with that attitude will always be Winners like Brown. He would fit perfect on the Raptors or Nets.I think Raptors would be better for him cause the Small Forward is open up there.

He pointed to numerous examples of online graphics web-apps, such as Aviary and Picnik, and asked who in the free software realm was trying to compete.

Other Güzel Sözler talks highlighted successes Burçlar in free graphics software, Gazeteler such as Stani Michiels' contest-winning design Çet Sohbet for a commemorative Dutch 5-Euro coin, a report from Güzel Sözler the Brussels-based studio Open Source Publishing, and Canlı tv Kaveh Bazargan's River Valley Technology, a company that uses Canlı Radyo free software to process the complex typesetting requirements of mathematical and scientific journals.
