B/R Interview: Q&A with West Coast Guard Dominic Artis

Dominic Artis is a 5’11", 165-pound point guard from Richmond, California, and he has been tearing it up lately.

Artis may have the best ball handling in the 2012 class, just see for yourself.  With a great step-back jumper and the ability to make tricky passes between multiple defenders, it’s a shame Artis isn’t very well known.

I recently got the chance to do an interview with him and here is how it went:


ZH: What are you working on this summer to become a better player?

DA: I'm working on finishing with contact and also working on shots off the dribble.

ZH: Do you feel that you are underrated?

DA: I do feel underrated, and hope to prove who I am this summer.

ZH: What schools are you considering? Who, if anyone, is at the top of that list?

DA: The schools I am considering are California, Washington St, Stanford, Louisville, Oregon and Washington.

ZH: Who is the best player you have played against?

DA: Haven't really played against someone that's given me problems. But I am looking forward to play Speice so I can go up against Devonte Smith.

Have you heard of Artis?

ZH: How are the Drew Gooden Soldiers doing so far this season?

DA: So far we are doing well. We have an overall record of 9-1 and have a good chemistry on and off the court.

ZH: Which current or former NBA player would you compare your game to?

DA: I would compare my game to Chris Paul. That's someone I try to portray my game after.

ZH: Do you believe in the East Coast Bias?

DA:  I do. Here on the west coast there's really not that much love shown. A clear example is the last McDonald's All-American game that only had one or two kids that were really from the west coast.

ZH: Who are some players on the West Coast that recruiters should be on the lookout for?

DA: I would say Jamil Brown. He's a real athletic wing that’s here in the bay area that hasn't really got good exposure.
