There are moments in life that may not make sense at the time. It's not until later that you become more wiser.
I understand this more and more because of what I have been through, where I am at in life and where I want to go. Back in high school in Tavares, Florida I needed to decide at that point what I wanted to do with my life, because I was recruited to play college football after starring in high school in football, track and basketball.
Brandyn Curry and his blog are back. After a successful rookie season playing (and writing) in Holland, where the former Harvard University standout guard was an All-Star, won the Dutch Basketball League championship and was named Finals MVP with Den Bosch, Curry now calls Germany's BEKO BBL home this season with Eisbären Bremerhaven and will continue to share his thoughts on playing professional basketball abroad with his blog, "3 Things I Learned This Week Playing Overseas"...
With the 2015-16 season in the books in Chile, we catch up with Valparaiso University alum, Erik Buggs (Player Profle Page), about his third season playing overseas and his first season in Chile where Buggs finished with 14.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4 assists (ranked 9th in the league) and 2.1 steals per game (ranked 7th in the league), while shooting 52% from the field and 32% from 3-pt.
With the playoffs and season coming to an end in Chile, have you had time to look back and reflect on your season?
I would say overall I had a very good season. I set some career-highs in a few statistical areas, led my team to the playoffs, and gave the best team in Chile a good run while doing it. I think this may have been my best season so far in my young pro career. I'm definitely looking forward to getting back on the hardwood and continuing the success I have had from this season!
What are some areas where you feel you grew and developed this season?
I definitely feel like I grew a lot this season mainly in the area of rebounding and just experience overall. As I stated in my blogs earlier, a lot was required of the imports this year and that was something that was very different for me. Being asked to contribute in so many areas of the game was something I had to learn to get used to. As the season progressed I found myself flowing into everything a lot more naturally and it didn't require so much thinking as it did earlier on. This was also my first season as a professional making the postseason and it is always good to have that type of experience under your belt.
