David Walls Reports:
May 3, 2012
ATLANTA, GA


David Walls interview with UBA All-Star DeAndre Bray (5'6''-G-85, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Jacksonville St.)

DeAndre Bray has been terrorizing the UBA all season with his great play but has now set his focus on the playoffs. Bray is currently leading the UBA playoffs in assists and is playing for the hottest team in the league. We took the time to get a up close and personal interview with DeAndre Bray.

Q: Congratulations on your success in this years playoffs. What do you think is the reason of the success of the Lions?

A: Thanks a lot Mr. Walls. I think my success with the lions is because of the team mind set! We just want to win! My first game with the lions was the first round of the playoffs and they put the ball in my hand like I was a Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) trade! We are just on the same page and we listen to each other no matter what or when!

Q: Why play in the UBA? Why not the ABA, WBA D-League etc.?

A: The UBA gives better chances! The UBA help a lot more than the others leagues probally combined.

Q: The UBA has sent over 80 players overseas in the last 3 years. What does that say about the league and the talent that plays in the league?

A: its talent on every team and each team find new talent during the season because players are getting jobs and leaving. They get players ready for the overseas style of play and what a team is looking for in a player.

Q: You are a great talent. Why do you think you haven't played overseas yet?

A: Thanks Mr. Walls!! I really think it's my height! But I feel like once a team give me a chance to play overseas somewhere they gone really see what I do for a team! I can make any team go! People can see the stats but seeing me in person is even better! You can just see how a game just changes when I'm in! Teams don't know how contagious I am! Hard defense, smart defense, help defense, hustle plays, smart shots, smarts passes, and even players take criticism from each others better!

Q: Well sources say that since the words out on your playoff run you are receiving a lot attention from Iceland and likes of the Harlem Globetrotters. How does that make you feel?

A: once I got the call about the news it made my heart feel better that someone is noticing me for my talent and skills.it would be an honor to be part of the tradition of the Harlem Globetrotters and Washington Generals. They had many legends come thru there!

Q: If anyone follows the UBA they know that youre going to be voted UBA Guard of the Year. How does that make you feel?

A: Receiving this reward would be the best individual reward I ever had! Thats an honor to be at the top of the list with all these great guards in the league!

Q: Jermaine Barnes (6'5''-G/F-82, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Atlanta Christian) was the UBA Most Valuable Player and has 3 UBA titles. I can't help but to notice the rivalry you guys have with him and the GIE Morrow Disciples. Is this a Knicks vs. the Bulls rivalry?

A: Thats a great comparison! They are the team to beat ever year because the talent they have with Jermaine being the ring leader. It's a battle every game.

Q: Barnes was quoted on UBA TV saying 'Bray is the best guard in the UBA'. What I would like to know is who is the best in the UBA (In your opinion)?

A: For the MVP to say that! Excuse me 3 times MVP winner I really feel like Im doing a great job and earned respect in the league!

Q: What are you goals for the offseason and next season?

A: During the off seasons I play in many pro leagues and pro tournament all over but mostly in Atlanta so for the summer I want to win as many championships I can because the more you win the more games you get to show people your skills. I play against a lot of NBA and overseas players in the summer time so just want to continue to hold my own and make a name for myself. For next season hopefully I'm somewhere winning doing something I love and getting paid for it!

Q: Who are some of your major influences and what words of advice can you give younger players who seek to play professional basketball?

A: For a word of advice would be for younger players to learn each level of the game! Know what you can do and what you shouldn't do. Know that your roll for a team can change so know how to be coachable to listen and learn!

Q: There are alot of talented teams left in the UBA Playoffs (Disciples, Havok, Express, Cyclones), who do you think you guys will face in the finals?

A: It is a lot of talented teams with all star players left. I know the Disciples to well not to say them but they lost last year in the first round. That was a shocker! Look at this year we upset the number one team in the first round. Stats don't mean nothing in the playoffs only W's! I know one thing that the lions are here to keep making history!
