It's amazing when I think back that I played basketball in Europe for 14 years.  I met a lot of great people and had so many great teammates over the years. I even met my wife playing overseas. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
 
So many experiences, coaches not speaking English, getting hot coins thrown at you by the home crowd, learning to drink bubbled water on the sidelines. Then I think now of the floors I played on overseas. Wood, laminate, a lot of rubber ones, even a team that had a concrete floor inside. 
 
Europe has come a long way since those days and most have turned to wood or laminate wood floors. Being a part of the World Cup gives me a great sense of pride that we are the court these great athletes are playing on. What an accomplishment for our company when we see our logo on the court 6,000 miles away. 

I still can't believe that I played over here and now I have installed a court in Bilbao that is safer for the players and that everybody loves.
