NBA INTERVIEW
Terrell Brandon Interview

By INSIDEHOOPS.COM                October 15, 2001

Recorded towards the end of last season.

Jeff Lenchiner: Terrell, talk to me about NBA defensive rule changes - how you feel about zone defenses being allowed?

Terrell Brandon: I would rather (they were) not, but it's been done, so...

Jeff: If you were on the committee making the decision to legalize zones, would you have done it?

Terrell: If I was on the committee? Are you going to say that?

Jeff: Yeah.

Terrell: Ok, well since you asked me, if I was on the committee I wouldn't go for it, I think. College and high school run the zone. I haven't run zone in ten years, so (laughs) I have to refresh myself and go back to some of my college tapes, man.

Jeff: Well, one reason they did it was please the fans - to move things around more, break up all the isolation plays, and I'm just picturing you or someone busting past a defender and always running into help around the basket...

Terrell: Well, you look at our team, though - we're a jumpshot-shooting team, and so this is going to benefit our team, a lot more than other teams, because we can shoot from the outside perimeter. And more than one person, I mean we have big guys who can shoot perimeter, guards who can shoot as well, so, if they want to sit back in the zone, we're going to kind of go ahead and do it, and we're gonna have some plays for them.

Jeff: So the zone won't be helping you as a point guard but it'll help the Wolves as a team.

Terrell: No question.
