How would you describe your game? Your dominance at the end of the Hapoel game as a 4 was impressive, your controlled the game. It was like that for 40 minutes. In this respect, it is possible to watch you at much higher levels. How do you see the possibility of returning to the NBA? Bonzie Colson: It has been my target since I came here. That’s my goal and also having played in Europe will help me when I get there. Playing in the NBA is easier than playing in Europe. There is more space. The three-second rule doesn’t exist here. There are many different rules. That’s why players are constantly changing places. Scoring is easier in the NBA. Because first of all, much more space is opening up. Also here are more systems. Every country has a system. A running game is being played in Spain. There is a game based on the physical struggle in Turkey. Every country has a different style of basketball. The NBA is opening up. There is a system, but you can’t be as aggressive as here. In Europe, you can be aggressive, push, hit, do a lot of things, but in the NBA you can’t do that. That’s why some of the players who play here look good there.
Traveling to Europe after your Bucks career… At what point did you decide it’s (the NBA) not working anymore? Bonzie Colson: I wouldn’t say it wasn’t working anymore. I was young, well I’m still young, so I decided I could do a year overseas and then come back (to the NBA). Scouts are still looking overseas, I could try something new. Then COVID hit, so I knew I was kind of in-between Europe and the NBA. So far has been a great opportunity. My goal is still to get back to the NBA for sure but I think it was great to do that and I’ve been doing well.
Malcolm Brogdon and three Milwaukee Bucks teammates — Donte DiVincenzo, Tim Frazier and Bonzie Colson — watched intently at The Mecca Sports Bar and Grill in Milwaukee as Toronto Raptor Kawhi Leonard’s game-winning shot attempt playfully bounced on the rim. After what seemed like minutes to Brogdon, the Bucks learned they would be playing the Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals, as Leonard’s buzzer-beater dropped through the net in the deciding Game 7 that eliminated the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bucks will face the Raptors in Game 1 on Wednesday in Milwaukee.
