          JOSE BAREA INTERVIEW AT 76ERS VS. MAVERICKS GAME
                          PUERTO RICO VS. GREECE VIDEO
EUROJOHNBBALL-
At the 2010 World championships in Turkey, you played with Puerto Rico against Greece and you were red-hot in the 1st half, with the game ending up you and Greek guard Vassilis Spanoulis going back and forth on the offensive end. To me the Houston Rockets used his skill level wrong by sticking him in the corner as a spot-up 3 point shooter and not letting him do his thing at the top of the key. What is your opinion on his game?
JOSE BAREA- He does a great job running that pick and roll at the top, especially right there on the angle. His shot is so consistent and he is a pretty quick guy, one of the best handles too. So I think alot of his game, I got alot of respect for him and he is a guy that could easily be in the NBA, no doubt. But that was a great game against Greece and if we had Carlos Arroyo, it would have given us another guy that could score more than 10 points, run the pick and roll and give me a break, I was dying.

EUROJOHNBBALL-
What do you think of Angel Vassallo, do you think he could play on an ACB power or a Panathinaikos or Olympiacos type of European squad?
JOSE BAREA- Vassallo, he is a great kid, talented. I think so he has the confidence, he has the shot, he has the size. I think he could play in one of the best leagues yeah.

EUROJOHNBBALL-
What do you think about Puerto Rican big-man Peter Ramos, I watched him play with Fuenlabrada in the ACB league and he was tough when he got the ball in the paint with post-up plays?
JOSE BAREA- Yeah he has gotten alot better, I mean you give it to him in the post, you better come down to help because he can score down low and he can knock down free-throws. He is playing in China, I hope after this year he is done and he can go to a better league with a team.

EUROJOHNBBALL-
With Carlos Arroyo, I always liked his game. With the Mike Bibby situation, do you think carlos would be the odd man out? I always thought a northeastern city like Philly or even the Nets would be good for Carlos because on a Friday night he would bring in 500 to 1000 Puerto Rican fans if he was getting 20 minutes.
JOSE BAREA- Oh Carlos is solid, he makes the right pass, he does not throw the ball away, he makes the mid-range shot. It was just a tough situation for him with those 3 big names on Miami, he was starting, then he got benched, he might be the odd man out. I think more than 500 Puerto Rican fans would come to see Carlos and could be a good move for some teams.

EUROJOHNBBALL-
Do you plan to play with Puerto ico this summer at the Fiba Americas?
JOSE BAREA- Yeah that is the plan, to play in Argentina and try to qualify for the Olympics and see what happens.
