On The Clock With Joel Freeland

By DHawes22 Posted in: Blazers, joelfreeland
This past Media Day, I was fortunate enough to be able to sit down and interview the Trail Blazers and Head Coach Terry Stotts ... But these aren't your average, run-of-the-mill basketball questions. Without further ado, here is the next installment of "On The Clock" with Joel Freeland.

What's the one thing you miss most about England?

Joel Freeland: Friends and family

Fish and Chips or Shepherd's Pie?

JF: Fish and Chips all day (Ed Note: Joel says he prefers a lighter batter on his fish and chips.)

What's your favorite part about the city of Portland so far?

JF: The weather. It reminds me of home.

What's your favorite food?

JF: Sushi

Have your found good sushi in Portland yet?

JF: Meyers showed me one, but I can't remember the name. Sinju is one of my favorites as well. (Ed Note: Not sure who to give credit to for this Photoshop that Meyers posted on his Instagram account, but if you're out there and reading this right now, kudos! What makes it even better is the two of them are becoming really good friends as pointed out in this story by Erik Gunderson.)

What's your least favorite food?

JF: Cauliflower (Ed Note: Good call, Joel. I'm one of the least pickiest eaters around and even I'm not a fan of that veggie.)

Why did you choose to wear the No. 19?
JF: I've always played with No. 19. No specific reason, really.

Who is the one former, or current, NBA legend you would love to match up with 1-on-1?


If you could do any event in the Olympics, outside of basketball, what event would you do?

JF: 100M Dash (Ed Note: Once again, thanks to super intern, Mario Lucero for the fantastic Photoshop.)

If you weren't in the NBA, what sport would you go pro in and at what position?

JF: Futbol, Center-Stiker (Ed Note: Once again, thanks to super intern, Mario Lucero for the fantastic Photoshop. Also, Joel was adamant about spelling it "futbol" and not "soccer.")

What's your favorite soccer team?

JF: Tottenham Hotspurs

Who's your favorite pair of sneakers?

JF: Any Nikes

What's your favorite movie?

JF: Gladiator

Will we ever see Joel Freeland on Twitter?

JF: No. I was on there before but not again. I'm done will all social media. I just didn't find the enjoyment [in using it].
