Interview with Akeem Scott, Team Jamaica - Aug 3, 2010

Before the Centrobasket Tournament, you mentioned that you weren't going to be scoring much in your role with Team Jamaica. Fast forward to the CAC Games and you're second on the team in scoring. Did the coaching staff adjust their strategy or did that happen more informally?

You know I came into this summer with a point guard mentality, pass first pass second, and if that don't work pull out my Scoring Game from my Pumpa backpack!! My team was in trouble. We didn't have a full roster and players got hurt. There was only one option left, play the PG position with the intentions to score!

Has playing for a national team felt any different from playing for a professional team? What have you learned in your first run with Team Jamaica?

Playing with the national team is very different than with a professional team. On the NT there are 12 of your country's best players trying to represent their nation as best as possible. It made me love basketball a little more than I did!! I've learn with my Jamaican NT no task is too big no matter who get hurt sick or just can't show up.

Is Team Jamaica done for the summer? When do you start transitioning back to the professional side?

Yes, Team Jamaica is done for the summer, 4-4 overall without any of our NBA PLAYERS, I would say that's not bad! And now its time for me to start talking to my agent Paul Kevin and see what Euro team I can help to a CHAMPIONSHIP.

Any other thoughts?
Last but not least I just want to thank everybody who supported team JAMROCK in both Centro Basket and C.A.C games. To all National Teams Players out there it was good battling you guys and I wish the best for yal this upcoming season.
P.S just stay out my WAY! LOL 2008 MVP and Finnish national Champ said so! Hahaaaa. God bless guys and keep working hard.

Zornotza inks Khalid Mutakabbir - 3 days ago
Ametx Zornotza (LEB Silver) signed 26-year old American (has also Jamaican passport) guard Khalid Mutakabbir (193-86kg-91, college: Presbyterian, agency: Duran International). He played recently at Palma in the LEB Gold, but was released by the team last month. In 6 games he had 5.5ppg and 3.2rpg this season. LEB Silver will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. The last season Mutakabbir played also at Palma (also in LEB Gold) where in 8 games he recorded 8.6ppg,...   [read more]

Akeem Scott's double-double lands him Player of the Week award among Jamaicans playing currently abroad: - 10 days ago
Traditionally, every week we bring you a list of the top performances of Jamaicans who are currently playing abroad. This week's number one is an experienced former international guard Akeem Scott (185-83). Scott could not help Universidad de Concepcion (20-10) in their last game. Despite his very good performance the second-placed Universidad de Concepcion (20-10) lost in an overtime 81-85 on the road to the lower-ranked (#5) CD Tinguiririca San Fernando in the Conferencia Centro.    [read more]
