Tre Brewer
Tre Brewer (198-G-90, college: CS San Bernar.) current player of Bolmar La Paz (Bolivia-Libobasquet) gave an interview

Why you decided to be a pro player.

At an early age everyone has a vision of being a professional, the next big thing. I realized the potential I had to make it to the next level in basketball in 2011 when I attended Div 1 Youngstown state University in Youngstown, Ohio. I knew it would be a tough road to become a pro but my determination to surpass every road block ahead of me just added more drive and fuel to the fire. Transferring my senior year to California State University of San Bernardino to finish up my college career I knew then it was now or never and I had to give it everything I had in order to even have a chance at the next level. I became a professional because it's nothing like lacing up your shoes, seeing your last name on the back of your jersey and having the courage to face every obstacle that comes in your path. That summer I signed my first professional contract to Bayside San Andres In Colombia, South America. Direct tv League. That's when I knew this was the life for me.

There are many players without a job fighting for the same spots, how hard is to wait for your ideal offer and not take the first that comes up considering that the next one may not come soon.

Yes, there are many players with and without jobs fighting for the same opportunity to sign a contract. Getting signed can sometimes be a very long process. A lot of things do come into play, the position you play, your experience, salary and how you conduct yourself as a person and most importantly a "professional". Waiting for the job or offer you want can be a very long process, but personally faith in God and prayers, hard work and dedication has brought me through some tough times when it's definitely a waiting game but when your number is called you must be more than ready!

Which was the best game you had in your career so far?

The best game I've played in my Professional career has been in Europe when I played my second game for Omonia Basketball Club in Nicosia, Cyprus. I had 28 points 45.5% 5 rebs 4 asst and 1 steal verse the 2nd place team in the league AEK.

Tell us your strong point and your weakness in your game.

Being a combo guard (2-1) at my height 6"6 has it advantages. A few of my strong points in my game is my ability to work the mid range area and high post, it doesn't always has to be a 3 point shot. I feel the mid range game is a lost art and I work daily on finding my spots. Keeping my poise playing the point guard position and controlling the game is very very important to me. Having a good handle on the ball, being able to make plays, and being able to create not only for myself but for my teammates around me also is a major key. On defense my ability to guard the point guard and make it difficult for him throughout the game is effective. I try and keep his vision as minimal as possible and keep pressure on him to turn the ball over. With that being said if the point guard is now guarding me, I now can work my low post game and score from there also. Some things I could improve on is getting in the passing lanes a lot more, getting more steals and hitting the offensive rebounds more.

Which player was the hardest opponent to play against?

In my basketball career I've went against and guarded some very good players. CJ Leslie (North Carolina State), Shelvin Mack (Utah Jazz), Norris Cole (Miami Heat). Weather being very quick, crafty, or athletic guarding some of these players with the skill set they have had been a tough task.

Tell about the best teammates you had so far.

Some of the best teammates I've had in my basketball career have been is the most athletic player I've played with Kwame Alexander (Overseas Professional) , Dontell Jefferson (Charlotte Bobcats/Overseas Professional), Theron Laudermill (Overseas Professional) and Eric Wise (Overseas Professional). Every one of these players has brought the best out of me whether it was on the court or on the court learning.

Which coach you want to thank because he made you better player.

I would definitely like to thank a few coaches that have helped me take my game to the next level and took the time to teach me how to play the game of basketball the right way. First, Quincy Brewer head coach of San Bernardino Community College. Second, Allen Caveness my college coach/current head coach of Saint Anthony High school. And lastly David Kleckner current head coach of Etiwanda the high school I attended. All of these coaches have instilled something in me that I will never forget and will always put to use what they taught me in every single game.

Role player in a big team or star in a smaller one?

Role player on a big team, or Star player on a smaller? Hmm tough question lol. The game of basketball must be played "selfless" in order to reach the ultimate goal which is winning. No one wants to be a "star" and lose, have great game but the only thing to show for is your personal stats. When on the other had you can play your role, play your game, and put the team before yourself and in the end result is with a WIN. It's no greater feeling then winning, being a winner and knowing you did your part to contribute.

Which is your favorite basketball shoe? Which one you wear now?

My favorite basketball shoes are, the Jordan 11s, the Nike Kobe 9s and the Nike James Hardens. The shoes I play in now are the 2015 Nike low cut James Hardens. But the Kobe 9s never fail me. Lol

What plans you have for the future?

My plan for the future is to continue to strive for greatness. Allow God to place me in positions that will extend my basketball career. Get on a platform to land a NBA D-League opportunity, NBA opportunity, and more Professional Overseas opportunities. One thing I will do and continue to do is work my way up the latter, personally it wouldn't be any fun if there were no work involved. Always remember God will open doors that you might have thought were closed! To my future plans, Im coming for you!
