Q&A with Marcin Gortat from MG Camp in Lublin

As you know Marcin Gortat during summer organize several basketball camps for children in Poland. After training there is a time for questions about live of basketball player and about NBA. I found some movies at the youtube from his camp in Lublin where he speak about his relations with Robin Lopez, Dwight Howard, about his first game against Shaq and that Dream recently destroyed him 5-0 during play 1on1... So I decided to translate some parts of this Q&A from those videos.

Sorry for my not first-class translation.

Question: Who is your best friend on the team Phoenix Suns?
Answer: I think that probably the whole team. Certainly one of the better, however, is Steve Nash, and reserve center Gareth Siler. Overall, however, we have great staff, which has a very nice atmosphere. We are one big family outside the parquet and during the match, we share the ball and help yourself. Now we need only to have better results.

Question - Did your relation with Robin Lopez, starter, changed?
Marcin had a lollipop, questioner hadn't, so Marcin redone a question to everybody could hear it.
Answer -  Did your relation with Robin Lopez changed? Robin Lopez it's a player who played as starter in Phoenix until there "landed up" Polish Hummer... Don't take this nick so literally, please... until the Pole landed in Phoenix. We haven't good relations, ever. First day I asked Robin where the team training starts - at gym or in the video room. He answered - "I don't know, I didn't find out yet". After two minutes I went to gym, Robin Lopez followed me and turned to video room. Then the coach come - "Where are you. You are 5 minutes late in the very first day." I told - "I didn't know that we started. I asked Robin, he didn't told me about.""How he didn't tell you. Everybody known that we are in the video room." I thought myself "Aha. Ok. I know where we are, I know from where we start". I promised myself that he (Robin) will not catch the ball at training and take my word - in the half of the season I more waited for training than for a match. The boy had so a great chance, he got such a great opportunity to play in the first five as a starter... When I was still in Orlando and played behind Dwight's back I prayed for a chance... He had such a chance for two years and he didn't take advantage of it. So I told - if not you - there is one thousand people for your place. The next in the line was Marcin Gortat, who came and took your place in the team... It's businnes. That's life. I took his place and we (he and people on the camp) hope that I will play for a very long time in this team...


I found later the whole interview in Dziennik Wschodni. Thank to google translator (I know - he is far from perfection) you can read (and sometimes guess what's the matter :D) it here.
