BJ League、王信凱、Juefan Geiger

Hernando Planells最近收到BJ League擴張球隊Okinawa Golden Kings教練Hernando Planells的email,徵詢台灣是否有適合的球員可以參加該隊。他想尋找的對象是高射手,也認為如果隊上能有一個來自台灣的球員應該還不錯。

他預估該隊應該會有4-5名外籍球員,這也是BJ League球隊的常態,而這名台灣球員或許會是第5外籍球員,月薪在30-40萬日幣之間。

查了一下資料,其實Planells的背景還蠻有趣的。他是西班牙和菲律賓的混血,但是住在美國,曾經在UNLV教練團待過,也執教過小聯盟AAPBL和ABA,曾經為知名球探Marty Blake工作過,今年才30出頭。


Golden Kings name Planells coach

The Ryukyu Golden Kings, one of the bj-league’s two expansion teams for the 2007-08 season, named Hernando Planells Jr. as its first head coach, the Okinawa-based club announced Friday.

The 30-year-old Planells, whose father is Spanish and has lived in Japan, was at the helm of the Wyoming Golden Eagles of the All-American Professional Basketball League in 2005 and the Hollywood Fame of the American Basketball Association last season.

The Los Angeles native’s extensive coaching background also includes stints on UNLV’s staff and stops at Los Angeles and Monrovia high schools in California and Immaculate Heart High School in Tucson, Ariz. He has also been working for Marty Blake’s Court Report staff. Blake is the NBA’s director of scouting.

Tatsuro Kimura, general manager of the Golden Kings, said in a statement that the club selected Planells, whose mentor is ex-NBA coach Don Casey, from more than 10 candidates because his coaching style suits the team, which wants to pursue a fast, high-scoring and entertaining game.

一時之間,倒也想不出來台灣有什麼樣的球員適合,因為真正夠好的高射手,大概都是國手,月薪也都在這個價碼以上。

但陰錯陽差,聽到一個馬路消息說,王信凱對到日本打球很有興趣,而且已經自己透過管道和Okinawa接頭。他的條件並不是Planells尋找的首選,能不能如願到BJ League去打球,要靠實力還要靠一點幸運。有這種心,已經在台灣球員裡算是不錯了,只怕不能堅持下去,或是運氣不好而已。

我為他祝福。

Juefan Geiger也是莫名其妙冒出來的台德混血,身高有205cm,身材壯碩,目前在德國第三級聯盟打球,也剛從學校畢業。奇怪的是26歲還在念書,主修的還是生化方面的科目,有可能是研究所吧。

我們通過幾次email,他對來台灣打球也有高度興趣,但是能不能成行都還要看SBL的新洋將規則如何規定。現行洋將身高限制為200cm,也就是說他只能尋求以本土球員資格加入SBL;而這又要等到他拿得到台灣的身份證才行。

他很有興趣飛來台灣到各隊進行tryout,不過現在我也不跑新聞了,也不知道球隊有沒有興趣。照理說,如果弄得到一個205cm的”本土”球員,應該大家都會前仆後繼才是。

有意者請洽hoopjunkie…哈哈。
