the most dangerous player in the ebc, recently hooked up with the nbdl’s sioux falls skyforce, after having spent the first part of the season with cholet basket, in the top french division. we caught up with corey willimas and had 187 drop the 411.
1. yo homicide, you spent the first part of the season playing for traditional french league powerhouse cholet basket, what was best about coming home for x-mas.
the best thing about coming home for x mas was seeing my faminly, i missed them a lot.
2. was the french game, league & vibe what you had hoped for?
the french league is definately a good league, but my situation wasn’t what I thought it would be. in the past, anywhere I played in my career I played at least 30 minutes a game, and i would always have a chance to produce and play my game. I would always have an effect on the game, I would at least have my team in a position to either win or lose the game, and in cholet that wasn’t the situation. though I really liked coach erman kunter a lot, he knows basketball. he wanted me to come back, but ultimately it wasnt the right situation I was looking for and still, i played 8 games and we won 6 of 8 games.
4. you just signed with the nbdl’s sioux falls skyforce. how did that happen and what can you say about the team and situation after the first couple days?
THIS WAS THE TEAM I PLAYED FOR IN THE CBA LAST YEAR, I KNOW THE SYSTEM, I KNOW THE WAY THEY WANNA PLAY, I KNOW I WILL AT LEAST PLAY 30 MINUTES A GAME IN WHICH I WILL HAVE A GREAT CHANCE TO PRODUCE ON THE COURT, AND BY DOING SO I GIVE MYSELF A CHANCE TO FOLLOW MY DREAMS AND MAKE THE NBA. I WENT THROUGH THE CBA LAST YEAR AND DID WELL, AND IM GOING TO DO IT ONE MORE TIME IN THE NBDL AND WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. the first couple of days have going down well, im just getting adjusted to my teammtes, im happy here and just ready to do what i do baby.
5. what are the realistic chances of going from nbdl to nba? is that what you are gunning for, or rather a european contract?
my chances are real and im definately gunning for the NBA, but at the end of the day, i just want to have a successful season in the nbdl, i did it last year in the CBA if I do it this year in their minor league, the can’t deny me. if the NBA dosen’t happen at least I gave it my all and I will definately play in Europe next year.
6. what are your personal on-court goals for this season?
BE THE BEST POINT GUARD IN THE NBDL THIS YEAR
WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP THIS SEASON
LEAD THE LEAGUE IN ASSISTS
THIS SUMMER KILL EVERYONE IN THE STREETS REPPIN K1X!!!!
7. I know you must be dying to get out and face the competition in ny this summer…
this is what i love to do , i talk about streetball more than i talk about the league that im in.
this summer there’s going to be a lot of love for homicide, but there’s going be alot of hate as well and im looing forward to be defending my crown. the funny thing about it all is that I was always hunter and now im the hunted so we will see at the end of 2007 who will wear the streetball crown of ny…..BX ALL DAY, HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL, 187
look out for homicide preaching the streetball gospel, on k1x.com very soon….
