Q AWhat do you hope your legacy in Aus­tralian bas­ket­ball will be?

At the end of the day, I would want peo­ple to see me as a hard worker who got ev­ery bit out of their body tal­ent wise. And some­one that never backed down. The op­po­si­tion fans al­ways hated me, which was all good with me, but if I played for their team, they al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated what I did on a nightly ba­sis. I guess my great­est mo­ment was al­ways pulling on the green and gold and be­ing able to be a steady con­trib­u­tor for al­most a decade for the Aus­tralian Boomers.

NBL cham­pi­onship and two Olympic Games or maybe some­thing else, what is the high­light of your ca­reer?

AProb­a­bly the gold medal at 2006 Com­mon­wealth Games sim­ply for the fact it was in Mel­bourne. I got to play in front of 10,000 peo­ple with a gold medal on the line and hav­ing a de­cent game my­self. The mem­o­ries of run­ning around the court at the end and hav­ing all those peo­ple cel­e­brate with you, is some­thing that will stick in my mind for the rest of my life.
