I play for the Luxembourger team BBC Sparta Bertrange as a Small Forward and a modern Power Forward.

Despite my height, I am quick on my feet, change well directions and can handle the ball well even under pressure. I shoot the ball with remarkably high accuracy, especially off the dribbling, and I also enjoy creating for my teammates. I really like running the Pick ‘n’ roll as the ballhandler and this way can create for others and find the open man for the best shot or use the screen to score myself. On the defensive side, I can play exceptionally well 1on1 defence, even against shorter and quicker opponents. I play fundamentally well, intercepting passes and blocking shots with my long arms.

At the position 4 (PF), my height plays a bigger role as I get the ball more in the post, where with the help of height, footwork and strength, I can finish against any defender. Thanks to my strength, I am also able to establish a good position in the post. At this position, I set more screens getting my teammates free and rolling inside to finish strong. If I get the ball on the perimeter, I can use my 1on1 moves to get to the rim or shoot from outside.

I also serve as a good passer, either from the post, finding the open man on the perimeter or the cutting teammate or from the perimeter. Defensively, I use my body correctly to defend opponents in the post and box them out for the rebound. I block a lot of shots or at least contest them to make it difficult for my opponent.

Some more good aspects in my game are my athleticism and explosiveness. I would also characterize myself as a player for the “dirty work”, as I dive on every loose ball, I get a lot of rebounds, fight for them and I draw a lot of fouls on both sides of the court.
