Dan Clark – GB Stalwart – Hoopsfix Podcast Ep.15

Following on from Great Britain’s qualification for Eurobasket 2017, it seemed an appropriate time to get one of the mainstays and leaders of the team, Dan Clark, on the Hoopsfix Podcast.

On an overcast day last weekend we sat down in the Olympic Park to talk this year’s qualifying campaign and GB in general. In this hour long episode, hear from Dan on subjects such as:

  • How he feels about this year’s qualifying campaign and the team’s performance
  • Who he thought had particularly strong performances for GB this year
  • His thoughts on what Coach Joe Prunty has brought to the GB programme
  • What it took to get Ben Gordon to suit up this year and how it was to play with him
  • Whether or not he believes we’ll see Luol Deng and Joel Freeland return to GB next year
  • When he thought the team put in their best performance of the qualifiers
  • The embarrassment he felt in losing to Luxembourg in the final game of the summer
  • His disappointment at the lack of crowds at this year’s home qualifiers at the Copper Box
  • The frustrations he has with the lack of progress the British Basketball Federation has shown
  • How much he would love to play domestically, if the league was stronger; competitively & financially
  • The potential for suiting up for the England Senior team at the Commonwealth Games in 2018
  • His advice to British players looking for contracts to play in Europe
  • How much the economical situation has changed in Europe since he first headed to Spain at 14
  • How hard (and expensive!) it is to find somewhere to work out when he comes home during the summer
  • And much, much, more!

As always, I’d love to get your feedback, come back after you’ve listened and lets get some discussion going in the comments.
