FTBL Owner and Commissioner Dylan W. interviews Alex Kupos.

Dylan sits down in an online meeting with former ranked 10th foreign prospect. Alex Kupos’ rank slowly fell this season as he missed 15 games from a broken arm. He spoke about the issue saying he is healing and that his rankings will soon go back up. That was not the case for Alex as his ranking fell from 10th best foreign to not even top 50. He says he might go back to basketball after this due to the struggle of getting his rankings up. He has played 2 years in Athens, which is also the birthplace of his parents, before moving to London and giving birth to Alex. He wants to keep playing Throwball but feels it is not good for him as he thinks about playing basketball every day. Being only 19 he still has many years left,but he feels basketball would be best for him if he wants to succeed. He had college offers to play basketball before he moved to Athens to play in the FTBL. Alex says, “I want to get my family out of the place they are, I want to go to the NBA. I want to be the next person to rep basketball for Greece like Giannis. My agent and I spoke, there is a spot on the Maine Red Claws.”

Ukao Makalawi Not Deciding to move up in Throwball

Remember the young Kenyan boy I wrote about a couple of months ago, well he will not be moving forward in his throwball career yet after deciding he will not be able to play his first year in college. After playing basketball in his neighborhood, Ukao fell and tore his Achilles. The doctor said it would take at least until next February to heal. He has signed with The University of Arkansas but will just be going to classes and no sports. Many people are sad due to the hype Mr.Makalawi had been getting. After writing that last article about him, he moved from 5th best foreigner to 1st place on the ranking. He says after he heals he will be able to play but we still have almost 10 months to find out. He will be heading out from the Nairobi Airport on his trip to Arkansas because his school gets out earlier than American schools. So long, I’m dillpickarkansas.
