Q&A: OKC Thunder guard Semaj Christon

by Darnell Mayberry Published: July 9, 2014

It’s been both. It’s good to get out there and get a chance to play with all the guys on the team and against the other teams, too. It’s a good experience.

What’s been most valuable for you in terms of what you’ve learned in your development?

Probably how to run a team. Just focusing on being a point guard and getting guys open in the right spots where they’re best at.

Defensively, are there some things that you’re learning and picking up during this first go at it with the summer league team?

Yeah, just being aggressive on screens. In college, it was kind of different. So just being aggressive. Having the mindset that defense wins games. That’s the biggest thing with me, just being aggressive and having my mindset ready to play defense.

Do you like the way this week has gone for you?

Yeah. Get more wins. But we’re playing great. We’re playing as a team. Everybody’s getting used to each other. I think we’re doing real good. I’m happy being here.

Take us back to Brewster Academy, where you played with Mitch McGary. What were those days like, and what was he like back then?

Good guy. Funny, funny, funny dude. It was great. We actually had other players that’s here too that played at Brewster. So it’s great just seeing everybody back together and talking to each other and meeting up. Brewster was a great place for all of us.
