Interview with player Chudney Gray - Mar 26, 2019

Chudney Gray (188-G-78, college: St.John's) former player of Guerreros de Bogota (Colombia-Liga DirecTV) in an old interview:

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for allowing me this wonderful opportunity. Your kindness and sincerity is greatly appreciated.

Tell us how you decided to become professional basketball player

I started playing basketball at a very young age. I would say around 4 or 5 years old. My dad was very instrumental in helping me develop the work ethic and tenacity that helped propel me from one level to the next. I grew up in a basketball family. Most of my uncles and cousins all played the game. Constant exposure allowed my love for basketball to continually grow. By the time my 10th birthday came around, I had it all figured out. This was my calling. It would be something that I would love to do for a living. Sharing those aspirations with my dad, allowed me to grow and become singular in my pursuit to becoming the best basketball player I could possibly be. My dad was my foundation. He was tough, stern and wouldn't allow mediocrity. He possessed a "my way or the highway" attitude. His attention to detail drove me crazy. At the time, I hated his stance, not realizing he was putting me in position to be successful. We established a rigorous regimen and increasing my workload instantaneously took my game to another level. The consistency with which I approached the game helped set me apart from my peers, ultimately landing me at one of the top high schools in New York City (Rice High School). It later led me to signing on collegiately at St John's University.

Inform us about your first team and what you remember most from that period?

My first international experience took place in the year of 2000. Shortly after graduating from St. John's University, I was offered a contract to play for Apoel, a team located in Cyprus. Tip-toeing the lines of Greece, Cyprus would be the place where I'd kick start my career. What sticks out the most during this particular time in my life was having to deal with the naysayers and doubters. It was time to silence all of my critics. Coming out of college, I didn't get the full opportunity to display my true skill set. I fell into a role that didn't require much scoring. My job was to run the team, limit turnovers and to make sound basketball plays. My transformation from being a marginal collegiate player to one of the league's top performers required an insurmountable amount of focus and will. After posting a great rookie season, I was able to lead my team to the league championship as well as help bring home the Cypriot Cup.

Which country you enjoyed most to live in and which one to play?

I've been truly blessed to have played 14 professional years in over 30 different countries. My favorite places would include Korea, China, Poland, Russia, Dubai, Cyprus, Lebanon, Kuwait, and the Dominican Republic. The cultural diversity along with the multitude of tradition provided an overview that made my experience a lasting one. I've always lived through a lens by consistently taking pictures, collecting my game worn uniforms and documenting each season. This has afforded me the opportunity to capture both time and place, reliving certain moments and understanding how far I've come with each passing year.

Do you still have contact with any of your former teammates? What are they doing now?

Without a doubt. I've built relationships that will last a life time. Being in a team environment for 9-10 months at a time forms a brotherhood of special bonds that translate both on and off the court. I love my teammates. The camaraderie that we develop over such a short period of time is priceless. Having everyone on the same page with identical goals definitely increases the chances of doing great things. The road isn't always smooth but the ride is well worth it.
With the influx of social media, everyone becomes easily accessible. It helps keeping up with one another fun and very easy. Some of my former teammates are still playing internationally while others are finding their footing in the workforce. It's a journey that we all sit back and laugh about. Understanding that our playing days will all end one day, can become quite scary, but as long as you're prepared, it makes for a wonderful end to a storied career.

Which game from your career as a player you will never forget?
