How's life going after college?

Robert Sacre: Oh, it's going great. You know, it's all I wanted, it's basically playing basketball. Basketball is my life, and that's what I'm focusing on right now.

How's your daily routine after leaving the university?

RS: It's different, but I love just playing. That's what I've been doing, and I feel like I got a lot better.

You're training at the IMG basketball facilities. How's that compared to the competitive level in college?

RS: They're putting me through NBA drills and they put me through long days of what you will experience in the NBA. So they are getting me prepared and I feel like I'm ready for the challenge of whoever's team I work out. I'm really excited.

What do you think you need to improve as a player to have a good career in the NBA?

RS: I think I just need to improve my offensive game. Or maybe it's more about showcasing it, to have the ability to show my game off. That's all that I really need to do. Obviously there are things you can improve on every day, and you can always improve your game. But I feel that I just need to showcase that and I have the ability now to be outside of the college game and display my game.

What are your expectations for the draft?

RS: I don’t really know what my expectations are. Probably not just to be drafted but to be able to contribute to that team.

Do you have any team or any city you would like to play for?

RS: I'm really open to whatever is be the best fit for me. I have a great ability to be dynamic and play for a lot of teams, so it doesn’t really matter to me as long as I get the opportunity to just play.

How do you get ready for the process of interviewing with teams and general managers that could be interested in you?

RS: IMG does a great job of preparing me for questionings and interviews. I think I am really ready for any question or anything that they bring to the table. I've prepared myself so well down here that I am ready to go and I'm excited to be able to showcase all of my abilities

Would you consider the idea of playing overseas?

RS:  Right now I am just focused on the NBA. About overseas, if that is the opportunity and that is what pays the bills, that’s fine. But I am really not thinking about that right now. It's all about the NBA.

As a basketball player raised in Vancouver, what does a player like Steve Nash mean to you?

RS: Steve Nash is a great player and he shows that it doesn’t matter where you are from… If you are good, you will be seen and you will have the ability to shine. He is kinda like the first diamond in the rough out of Canada, a person who no one really knew about or talked about and he went to a small college like Santa Clara. No one really talked about him, but he kept working on his game and it shows that if you keep working on your game the sky is the limit.

What do you think about Steve Nash being involved with the Canadian National Team as a general manager?

RS: I know he's going to make great decisions for Canadian basketball.

What NBA player are you looking forward to playing against?

RS: All of them. I'm excited to just be in the league and being able to have the challenge to play anybody. I'm hungry to be the best post player in the world and compare myself to the best players in the world.

What are you going to be miss the most from college?

RS: I'm going to miss the camarederie. I'm going to miss the team and those guys. Just the whole team environment. But hopefully I can bring some of that to whatever team I play for.
