#2 Kyle Hines - The Definition of a Champion

The Benas Podcast

Kyles Hines - The Definition of a Champion! Kyle’s journey from a small town named Sicklerville, New Jersey all the way to the top of the mountain of European basketball is a treat for any basketball savant to listen to and get inspired by. Kyle has been a high achiever ever since he came to Europe, winning 4 Euroleague crowns and countless domestic titles across Europe (Germany, Greece, Russia, Italy). After going undrafted, Kyle went on to join Veroli in Italy’s 2nd division in 2008. Two seasons and two 2nd Division Cup titles later he moved on to join German-powerhouse in Bamberg. After winning three domestic titles in Germany, he decided to join Olympiacos and went on to win his first two Euroleague titles (2012&2013) with the Greek team. Afterwards, he spent the core of his career (7 seasons) in Moscow, where he also went on to win 2 Euroleague titles and several domestic titles. Currently, he’s on a quest to do the same in Milano and bring the titles to the Italian powerhouse. I believe this episode is especially useful for young Americans coming over to Europe or elsewhere and starting their career. Kyle shared some insightful stories about his upbringing and adaptation process in Europe. Kyle talked about the importance of mentorship in his career in Europe, how Jerome Allen showed him “the ropes” early on. We went on to talk about Ego vs Pride, how important and difficult it can be sometimes to learn & accept a new role, Captain duties and the nuances of building a culture, how to handle social media as a pro, the relationship and expectations from Assistant Coaches, ELPA, Personal Projects and some quick hitters.
