Interview with John Rillie - Oct 18, 2018

John Rillie
John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga) (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga) former NT Australian player in an old interview (2008-9 season): Tell us how you decided to become professional basketball player.

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga): Becoming a pro player was a culmination of hard work and following a dream. From an early age I new I wanted to go to the USA and play college basketball. I was lucky enough to live the dream and have four very enjoyable years in the college system. One year at Tacoma Community College and three years at Gonzaga University. Good times. After college I was fortunate to be offered a pro deal in Australia with the Brisbane Bullets.The start of a fifteen year pro career. Pick the best starting five in your dream team.

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga):

John Stockton - I need someone to get me the rock
Me - Best two guard getting around
Reggie Miller - Stockton would keep both of us happy
Larry Bird - He would be the glue guy. Give us a little of everything.
Moses Malone - I need a bull down low to rebound mine and Reggie's misses. How you stay in shape and still dominating in the NBL league (2008-9 season) ?

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga): Dominating is very kind.The way I feel I have allowed myself a long and successful career is I stay in shape all year round. I love the game of basketball so I will play anywhere, anytime. Inform your daily routine and give some tips to the young players.

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga): Besides the usual time you spend with your team practicing, I always do some work on my own. You need to keep your individual skills sharp and you do not necessarily get this in a team practice. During the season I always make sure I get up at least an extra 250 made shots a day. I always keep count of makes. You played in AEK Athens, why you left from there?

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga): The AEK situation is a very interesting one. Although I was not performing at the level I was hoping, the bank account was very light. When you are responsible for other people (wife and child), it is very important the bank account is getting looked after. History will show i was not the only one in a tough situation there. Whats your opinion about the strength of the Greek league.

John Rillie (195-G-71, college: Gonzaga): I loved playing in the Greek competition and Euroleague. The European style is a lot different to Australia. In Europe it is very tacticial and half court driven. Each possession means a lot to the outcome of the game. Australia is very much run and gun and a whole lot looser. Europe really helped develop areas of my game that needed work to be successful at the international level. Inform us about the best game in your career.
