The steal of the draft in all of San Antonio fans mind was that of DeJuan Blair. When he slipped down to San Antonio and they picked him I thought it was a very, very good pick. He proved to be just that.
Blair recently sat down with the Pittsburgh Gazzette during his summer basketball camp that he is holding there. He answered some questions on his first season with San Antonio and what he plans on doing to improve.
Continue after the jump to check it out.
On his experience in the NBA:
“It was wonderful, just getting experience,” Blair said. “That was the best thing. I’ll know next year what’s going to go down. I was just trying to have fun.”
On the series with the Dallas Mavericks in the playoffs:
“That rivalry is like West Virginia and Pitt,” Blair said. “It was crazy. I loved it.”
Thoughts on their series with the Phoenix Suns:
“Phoenix was a tough matchup for us,” Blair said. “They made a lot of 3-pointers. They shot well. We played well, but their shots went in. It was a big learning experience for us.”
His favorite part of his first season:
“My favorite part of my first season was just making it,” Blair said. “I didn’t think I was going to make it at all. I went through all of that stuff, my name not being called [in the first round]. I had some doubts. I definitely had some doubts.”
What he plans on improving for next season:
“I’m just trying to get better in all aspects of my game,” Blair said. “I want to keep having fun and keep getting better.”
