I met Ray just after his rookie season at a Nike Hoop Camp in Barcelona in 1997. As a young journalist for the largest German basketball magazine I got to interview both him and Kobe Bryant in the same summer just weeks apart from each other. Kobe was visiting Paris. Ray was in Barcelona. So I went. Kobe first, Ray second. No preference. That’s just how the schedule worked out.
Now this may all sound like it was a routine gig for me but I remember I was really nervous. After all, these two were my first field Nike Air Max Tavas Donneassignments. Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Rosa I had telephone Nike Air Max 2016 Womens interviews Adidas NMD Femme with NBA players before, but this was my first real sit-down. That Kobe session went well. I mean, interviewing an 18-year old, skinny kid who really didn’t do much in his first season was not hard. And although I did ask about the airballs in Utah, Kobe was very open and relaxed during the interview. Even outright friendly. Ray Allen was not. Now 20 years later, I think I know why.
But first, I want to tell you about the interview which to this day I consider one of the worst I ever had.
Interviews are usually just as different from each other as the people you ask the questions. No two are completely alike. For example you can have funny interviews where it’s hard to stay professional (Dirk), boring interviews where it seems the guy just gives you the same soundbite over and over again (MJ)Nike Roshe Run Dames , Adidas Superstar Dames interesting Nike Air Max 90 Donne Nero interviews that Nike Roshe Run Donne are more like conversations which go way beyond basketball (Kobe), professional interviews that don’t even reveal one tiny bit of someone’s soul (Harden) and then there are interviews where you get the strong impression that the person doesn’t even want to be interviewed. That was Ray Allen.
