Interviews with the Polonia All-Stars!

While at the Hotel in Kalisz,  I interviewed guys that were staying close to my room.  The first series of interviews are a joint interview with Darnell Hinson and Tony Easley followed by a separate interview with Harding Nana.  Each player has a different story all very interesting and informative take a look! The next day Harding went on and won the All-Star game MVP with his great performance for the South team that I was a part of.

PLK All-Star Game: Polonia and Slam Dunks Ruled

Courageous Harding Nana became the Best player of the All-Star game played in Kalisz. Polonia Warszawa Forward had 26 points and 7 rebounds. Nana wasn’t only shining during play time but he started while the player presentation was under way. As usual during these events the Polonia Forward had to show his dancing skills. In the whole game South team represented by Nana was better. Led by coach Jacek Winnicki team won against North 121:117.

This was definitely some great fun, game was important for the players also. We wanted to rest a bit and play this game relaxed – Said the All-Star Game MVP, Harding Nana

The awards as well as the final game score were nothing as effective as the actions by Cameron Bennerman and Eddie Miller. Bennerman was running on the court in green shoes which were supposedly sent to the player by Kobe Bryant himself. Bennerman most of all was flying to the baskets during this all-star game just like Bryant in his youth. He was showing some beautiful slam dunks each time down the court and his teammates were eager to pass him the ball. Shooting Guard of the best team in the league in one of his air craziness caught the ball with his right hand and put it to left and slammed it in the basket!

Many dunks were also made by Tony Easley and Eddie Miller but most of the positive emotions about flying above the rim were made by Łukasz Biedny who in the Slam Dunk Contest beat the previously mentioned Bennerman.

All of the players were involved in having fun around the game. Igor Milicic during the 3point shootout showed a widely known gesture “It’s Over!” that was previously made during the Slam Dunk Contest in 2000 by Vince Carter. Milicic made the gesture while Andrzej Pluta was getting to the court. But the AZS Koszalin Point Guard was mistaken because the Anwil sharpshooter had to leave his crown to Polonia Warszawa player, Darnell Hinson.

I did not know that I would be in the actual competition since I was a fill-in. Before the contest in an interview for www.gotorey.com a website ran by Torey Thomas of PGE Turow Zgorzelec I predicted my win! – said Hinson

Mentioned by Hinson, Torey Thomas was one of the players and viewers who enjoyed the All-Star game most. Turow Point Guard during the shootaround was walking on the court with a camera and recording interviews with almost all of the players.
