Captain Belieber


The Rolling Rocks have a new website feature for the 2015 – 2016 season! Every couple of weeks we will bring you an exclusive Q&A session with someone involved in the Rocks organisation, ranging from players to match night crew members.

First up in our Back To Back Three feature is Rocks captain Kieron Achara.

1. Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I actually don’t have any rituals per se. I do leave my jersey on the 3rd chair before the game starts. The 3rd chair represents my little family.”

2. What advice would you give to any kids who want to become future basketball stars?


Will we ever see Justin Bieber in a Rocks jersey?

“My advice would be not to aim to be a star but instead aim to be the best you can be. If you continue to work hard, never give up, and ask for help when needed success is imminent.”

3. Who is your favourite NBA team?

“I love to watch the Spurs. They play team basketball that I love.”

4. What’s your favourite midnight snack?

“I like cashew nuts but chocolate is my weakness.”

5. Which arena in the BBL do you enjoy playing at most?

“Obviously the Emirates is my favourite but asides from that I love the Copper Box. More so because of GB memories.”

6. We heard you’re a fan of One Direction…did you cry when Zayn left?

“I didn’t cry when Zayn left because Bieber is making enough good music at the moment to keep me entertained.”
