Transition to Germany - Feb 17, 2016

My first month in Germany was a transition period. I had gotten sick because I was getting use to the climate change. I had experience moments also where I was questioning myself if coming to Germany was the right decision. I experienced being paid late due to a communication problem. But after all that I prayed about it and my path had gotten better. I closed out the Christmas break with a 30 plus game even though we lost and was finding my confidence as well as being back to the fit shape I was capable of. Germany compared to the United States would be like the city of Seattle Washington only difference the people have way more personality. I'm frowned upon in public while travelling on the train when I bob my head and sing aloud listening to music. Courtesy is not the German way. But besides that I have met some Germans who don't have those qualities about them. Once the people know you they welcome you more but its just hard shell you have to crack to get there. The food is amazing I don't think I haven't liked anything yet, I eat everything lol. Germany isn't bad at all only time can tell if I stay here longer but I am appreciative of my time here. I wanna shout my teammates and the kids of the youth teams I coach. They brighten up my day and don't know it at times. Continue to follow the journey.

The Last Hoo-rah- Mar.20, 2016  (by Joshua)

Here it is the last game of my season in Germany. I never really thought I was going to make it to this point. It has been a long grind and at the end of the tunnel I hope it all has paid off. My last opponent is TG Dusseldorf and we play away at their home gym. Hopefully we can pull off an upset and win this last hoo-rah of a game. Just a recap on the last derby game we lost by 10 points to ETB Essen but statistically I had 28 points and a lil over 10 rebounds solid stats but no win. So... [read more]
Complacency- Mar.11, 2016  (by Joshua)

Any player can get complacent at times when playing overseas professionally. Sometimes we get caught up in just "going through the motions". But some times just going through them isn't enough or effective to play your game. It takes that extra will power or discipline to be a little more than normal. To be good you gotta wanna be good, to be great you gotta wanna be great. I have been a victim of complaceny this season but I'm working on that so I can finish these last two games strong [read more]
Game Day- Feb.28, 2016  (by Joshua)

It's game day and I always tend to get butterflies before I play. I heard it was for the respect of the game. Last week we had a tough loss to the first place team BG Kamp-Linfort. Out of all the games I played in my entire life I have never gotten blown out the way we did that night. Normally I was on the other end blowing teams out but that game kinda summed up our full season. Now I have to put that game behind us and focus at the new task at hand [read more]
