Anton Erlandsson

Name: Anton Where are you from? Sweden How old are you? 13 When did you start playing the game? 12 What made you interested in playing basketball? The teamwork,and the hustle Do you remember your first organized basketball game? Yes, i rode the bench, and the first play i made i went to the wrong basket 😛 How did you play and how did it make you feel? i feelt happy because i knew i wanted to improve from that first game. When did you begin to take basketball seriously and why? i think after this years summer break. i had gone into a relationship, and after a heart break with her i noticed that basketball helped me. the guys i played ball with were still there, and i knew they always would be there to help me. Does your family support you playing basketball? Yes, but they always preach academics first, and i do put effort into both the court and the classroom. What influenced you to play basketball? i think Vince Carter, when i saw him fly on youtube, i think it was the dunk contest. it was just a sensation, and i feelt like something had happened. What is your favorite aspect of playing basketball? The intensity down the stretch, when down by a few. 10 sweaty teens who can put aside all their problems to win a game of pure passion and will. seeing them give up their bodies just to earn an extra point or two is perfect. What is your motivation to play? I want to be great, i want to be accepted by my friends as a basketballer. i strive to achieve the best i can be, i love the game to much to completely walk away...
