Brett Poirier: When did you officially get signed by the team?
Greg Plummer: Thursday of last week
BP: When did you join the team?
GP: I met the team on Friday last week when they were finishing up camp in New Hampshire.
BP: How was your first camp day with the team?
GP: It was good, we got a lot of stuff done. This being my first day, I had the chance to get up to speed with things.
BP: Playing against Summerside last year do you notice any differences in the style of play?
GP: Well this year’s team is totally different than it was last year. That being said it’s still knowing the league and the types of players gives me some advantages.
BP: You’ve had a busy summer, tell me a little more about that.
GP: Early this summer I played with Team Nike, and travelled to the World Basketball Festival in England. We played team London and team Paris. Team London was an all-star team made up of players from all over the UK, team Paris won the Jordan Brand Classic tournament in Europe. We ended up winning both games when we were there.
BP: Storm co-owner Duncan Shaw told me one of his goals for next season was to have a more athletic team then last year, from what you remember do you think that will happen?
GP: Looking at all the players we have in camp right now, all I see is athleticism. I’m not sure what all of the player capabilities from last year were but I can’t see it topping this.
BP: You had high point averages with Saint John last season, do you see that being the case this year?
GP: It’s hard to say, it’s all about the system you’re playing in. Some nights I might, some nights I won’t score many points. That’s not really what I look for anyway’s, if I’m needed to score I will, if I’m not then I’ll look to get my team mates involved.
BP: How was your welcome to the city?
GP: It was really nice, the night we arrived we had a dinner to meet city council and the mayor. It was my first introduction to the people here.
BP: What can the fans expect from you?
GP: I’m going to do whatever it takes to help the team win. I’m personally keyed in to putting a good brand of basketball out on the court and I think those who know the game and those who are learning it will really appreciate how much effort we will all put out. I hope I can fulfil everyone’s expectations as far as having an enjoyable experience when you go to a Storm game.
BP: Thank you for letting me be the first to interview you, and good luck the rest of the week at training camp!
GP: Appreciate it!
