Tim Parham Going Big in Return to the Halifax Rainmen
JULY 22, 2014, HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA - After recording the highest ever season rebound total for the National Basketball League of Canada with 429, being named the NBL Center of the Year and participating in the league's All-Star Game, power forward and center Tim Parham is happy to be returning to Halifax to give the fans a great shot at a championship.
The 2013-14 season was Parham's first with the Rainmen and in the NBL. Following the team's playoff run, the team announced Parham as one of the player's they assigned to their protected list as a means to secure the rebound record holder for the upcoming season. The Chicago native re-signed with the team on July 17, 2014.
'I'm hoping to show my teammates and fans leadership on and off the court,' said Parham of his upcoming season. 'It's a long season and there will be ups and downs. We just have to all stay together and gel at the right time.'
Parham helped take the Rainmen to the Atlantic Division Championship, where they were unfortunately taken out by the Prince Edward Island Storm.
For this next season, Parham vows to continue his success with the team, and even plans to break his previous rebound record and has goals to shatter the record for most blocked shots.
'Next season I plan on breaking my own rebounding record in the NBL just to make a statement,' said Parham. 'I want to set a standard for all the young, big men out there so they can see how important rebounding is to the game. I feel as though it's a lost art but I intend to put a stamp on it.'
Having an extensive international basketball resume, playing with Chile, Poland, Brazil, Peru and Germany, the 6'9' Parham is most excited to continue his career in Nova Scotia.
'Halifax is an excellent city, everyone has been amazing so far and the fan support is awesome. I think this upcoming season will be even better because I will be returning to see some familiar faces,' said Parham. 'I love playing for this team and I'm very excited to return. I feel at home in Halifax.'
