On this latest special player interview edition of the ELA podcast, Austin caught up with new Zalgiris Kaunas point guard Dee Bost.

With a resumé of pretty constant success in a career that has taken him through the lower levels of Europe to the Polish title and finals MVP with Stelmet Zielona Gora and the Leaders Cup and BCL Final Four with Monaco last season, fans in Lithuania can expect uptempo attacking play and ferocious competitiveness from their new playmaker.

Dee talked to the ELA podcast about a whole bunch of topics, including:

  • The upcoming Euroleague season
  • Bug invasions in Austrian hotels
  • Getting back to Euroleague after a great season in Monaco
  • Looking forward to playing for Sarunas Jasikevicius, and how a video of Saras the coach helped the young family man relate
  • How one coach in particular let him rediscover his own game after “playing like a robot”
  • Playing against his BCL F4 rival and new EA7 Emporio Armani Milano point guard Jordan Theodore
  • His go-to team on FIFA (maybe we should set up an ELA version of FIFA and Chill?)
