Our second player interview of the season comes courtesy of Hayden Lescault. Hayden has been a key player in the Rocks’ recent winning streak and won the Supporters Club Player of the Month for October award. Here’s what he had to say…
1) Who was your favourite basketball player growing up?
“Allen Iverson. I had about 30 of his basketball cards and wore his jersey all the time.”
2) How does the BBL compare to the German 2nd Division?
“The BBL is a little bit more fast paced with higher scoring games and more excitement, while the German Pro B is more defensive focused and has longer possessions.”
3) What did you major in at University?
4) You’ve credited your older brothers with helping your game. Who was the best out of the 3 of you? Do they still play?
“When we were younger they would dominate me, but comparing our high school careers I would say I have the edge. But Mitch, my oldest brother, would definitely still give me a run for my money in a shooting contest.”
5) Do you do community work most days? What is your favourite aspect of it?
“Ya we do a Jump2It program at primary schools across Glasgow. I just enjoy seeing the excitement on the kids faces while working with us. I think they really enjoy it and learn a lot about living a healthy lifestyle.”
6) If you were the owner of a new NBA team what would you call it? Who would you pick to be in your starting 5 from current NBA players?
“The Pharaohs. My starting 5 would be Steph Curry, James Harden, LeBron, Anthony Davis, Demarcus Cousins.”
