08:13 AM ET 11.11 | In a recent interview, Austin Daye shed some light on what life's like in Russia -- from the food (he doesn't have a chef in Russia) to the basketball (more sets, more practice, less speed). Q: So your contract is only for two months. If the NBA season is canceled, will you stay there? AD: I'm not sure. It's up in the air. We need to see if the team would want to extend, if not it would be my choice to come home. I'm kind of eager to come home and work out with my trainer in Los Angeles. It all depends on playing time as well. I came to help a team with a player that was hurt and now that he's coming back, I'm getting less minutes, which I understand. I knew that was part of the process.

"to the basketball (more sets, more practice, less speed)"

So, you mean they're actually playing and teaching basketball then? Not the playground BS you guys are used to playing where all you have to do is jump and dunk?

Guess the other leagues aren't all that appealing once they get there.
