Default Talkin' Hoops with Halifax Rainmen guard, Devon Norris


Devon Norris (fomerly of the Dalhousie Tigers) is currently a member of the Halifax Rainmen of the PBL.

Devon Norris is your lone Haligonian on this year's Halifax Rainmen roster. The 6'3" guard out of Upper Tantallon impressed the Rainmen staff at the Halifax open tryouts back in October, which ultimately led to a Rainmen contract offer. Norris played basketball for Sir John A. MacDonald in his high school days and then continued his basketball career into university as a Dalhousie Tiger. I had the opportunity to ask Devon about his Rainmen experience, his thoughts on his teammate, John Strickland, and if he had the chance to introduce the rest of the team to a tasty Halifax favourite.

Romy ( First of all, congratulations on becoming a member of the Halifax Rainmen this season. Up until this point, what has your experience with the team been like?

Devon Norris: Thanks Romy. So far, this whole experience has been very enjoyable. Iím learning so much everyday at practice, and playing at this level of basketball has improved my game so much. Thereís a lot of different skills I had to develop quickly in order survive on the court. Thereís a great group of guys that make up this team, so on and off the court itís been a lot of fun, and playing in my home town with the Rainmen has been awesome.

Romy ( It must be a great learning experience playing with a bunch of guys who have played hoops over the world. What advice and/or tips have you received from these guys?

Devon Norris: Yeah, most definitely. Everyone on the team has a different story and where theyíve played, and they all have great basketball experience. Itís fun talking to them and hearing their stories from where theyíve played, and some of the experiences they had. Iím always listening to what they have to say in practice too, and trying to learn everyday, and keep pushing myself.

Romy ( Are there any rookie duties with the Rainmen? Do you have to grab the team's lunch or carry around a Dora the Explorer backpack with the teams' socks?

Devon Norris: Rookie duties? Haha... Iíve been lucky, there hasnít been anything too crazy happen. Theyíll crack jokes here and there, but mostly itís carrying the basketballs, or the medical bag. Hopefully the vets wonít read this and get some ideas!
