"I am already tired", said zachary wright after the 57:62 opening defeat "of his" teams of bosnia and herzegovina against latvia at the european championship in group B in jesenice. The new brose baskets' point guard at times dragged himself around the field of the podmezakla arena, where the cracks of slovenia's most famous field hockey club usually skate, as if he had been in a serious fight in an ice hockey game. But when the 28-year-old, 1.89-meter big man stepped on the gas, made the game fast and even went to the basket himself, the bosnians were also successful. We talked to wright, who comes from texas and has already been around a lot in europe.
If you advance one round with your team, you might meet germany with your new teammates from bamberg, karsten tadda and maik zirbes. What do you think about it?
Zack wright: that would be cool. We have already played against each other at the supercup and talked, but an EM is something else. But we have to take one step at a time before we can look forward to a duel with germany.
How does it happen that a boy from texas plays for the national team of bosnia and herzegovina??
The initiative came from my coach when I was playing in croatia. He told me that I am a candidate for bosnia. I have expressed interest. So I can play competitions at a high level and more games. I also help the team. Then the einburger process started – and now I am here.
But that makes the summer very long.
Oh yes. It is physically and mentally very demanding, but it challenges you and makes you better when you play such a long season for almost the whole year.
And then comes bamberg with the bundesliga and euroleague season.
Yes, but it's not as tough as last year in russia when we had three games a week. We had almost 80 games and very long trips in russia. It will not be so hard in bamberg. There is little time now to get to know my new team and colleagues in bamberg, but i am looking forward to bamberg.
Are you worried about arriving in bamberg very tired??
The eurobasket is already a heavy burden when you play five games in six days and, if we advance, another three games in five days. Together with the preparation, that's a lot of matches. I'll be mude for sure, ah, i'm mude already.
Have you already contacted bamberg's coach chris fleming if you can get a few days off??
I am not sure. It is a difficult decision. I hope I can recover a bit, but I have to get to know my team and the systems. But i heard you have a good environment in bamberg and good physiotherapists.
