Olgun Uluc interviews Mitch Creek

Worth its own topic I think as it's rare you get more than snippets from a player in print.

Here's part of his response to whether signing with SEM is abandoning the NBA dream:

This is something I would appreciate if we could put a bit of an emphasis on. I believe in my self, 100 percent. I have absolute confidence that what I put forth every single night and every single day, in front of the eyes and ears of what is the NBA; I believe that's gonna get me a shot to maybe get a 10 day contract, to hopefully get two, to hopefully get three. I want to push teams to make decisions on me, based on what they think I can bring to the organisation. This is definitely not me throwing in the towel. 100 percent, not even f***ing close. This is about job security, and looking forward to the future. If, for whatever reason, whatsoever, it doesn’t work out over here and I don’t get a 10 day, and we don’t go on to have success personally and as a team, then I’ve gotta have options. I have to have a necessary means to keep myself in a great league, in front of good people, where plenty of attention from the NBA is being paid. Now, I believe the NBL is that kind of league.

Additionally, from Boti's site, presumably transcribed from elsewhere.

Asked whether he was looking forward to his first game against Adelaide, Creek said: "Depending who the owners are at the time, absolutely.

“Some people that work there, absolutely.

“I will walk into that stadium and I will thank the crowd, I'll thank my teammates that I’ve played with from there, I’ll thank the coaches.

“But there’s certain people at that club that I will never thank and I’ll never have any time for again. And I’m glad I got out of that situation with those current people there.

“I’m not here to name names or to shame anyone. The club was phenomenal to me. The entire organisation was amazing over the course of eight years, that turned me from a boy to a man and look, you know, things happen and that’s how it is.

“But yeah, I’m going to go back there with a real chip on my shoulder and they’re going to understand that they shouldn’t have done what they done and I’m going to play every single second of that 40-minute game and yeah, we’re going to try and raise some hell."

No doubt he is pumped but still amazing to read how often he now says " I " . Wonder if he can get the ego back in the bottle

This is an interview where the interviewer is asking Mitch Creek questions about (shock horror) Mitch Creek.

How would you like him to refer to himself?

Or you prefer the Third Person references?

The ego is out of the bottle ...that is the point . Not.blaming him for wanting to set himself up and good on him to get such valuable contract but do not get fooled, Mitch knows how to look after himself first and foremost ....... at one stage Adelaide fans amazingly thought he was doing everything for them and the rest of the players ...........

"Worth its own topic"

Yeah, cos there aren't enough opportunities for people to rehash the Creek saga, and tell us all, again, how much they hate the team's management.

Seriously, if the NBA doesn't work out, Creek should just start making pornos, he'd make a fortune just selling to people on here.

"it's rare you get more than snippets from a player"

Thank God for small mercies

"But yeah, I'm going to go back there with a real dick on my shoulders"

To have a chip on one's shoulder refers to the act of holding a grudge or grievance that readily provokes disputation. It can also mean a person thinking too much of oneself (often without the credentials).

Are Adelaide supports the biggest babies in Australia? Legitimate question.
