Will John interview



This interview is from a couple weeks ago after a Comets practice. At that time Will was training with the Comets to stay in shape. I wanted to talk to him since he was a local guy and had played with the Wizards for awhile. I had meant to post the interview during the holidays on a slow day, but his signing with the Comets yesterday meant I needed to post sooner rather than later.

I hope to get a quick interview with him today to talk about the signing and loan agreement. In the interview I asked him if he could sign with the Comets on a loan and he thought his team in Croatia would not like that. When I asked a team official about that yesterday, the response was that "Coach Roentved is well respected in a lot of places". I took that to mean that Coach was able to convince the team to make the short term loan.

I do not know the whole story about when he left the Wizards but I do know there was some animosity and hurt feelings at the time. There were some things said on both sides that are not usually said publicly. I think it is clear in the interview that he wants to say more but does not think it is a good time. Perhaps it will never be a good time to talk more about it.

Part 1

Will John talks about where he has been playing, possible transfers, languages he speaks, going to Europe and how that affected his growth as a player, people he has learned from, styles of play
