About Paul Zipser


Born in Heidelberg, Germany on February 18, 1994, Paul Zipser first plays organized basketball at the age of 11. He trains and competes in all youth teams of the USC Heidelberg throughout his youth. Additionally, he takes the court for the Basket-College Rhein-Neckar in both the JBBL and the NBBL (nationwide youth leagues) during that time.

From an early age Zipser is a part of numerous representative teams of the German Basketball Federation (DBB). Among other things, he is selected into the “All-Tournament-Team” at the renowned Albert Schweitzer Tournament.

In 2010, Zipser debuts in the ProA, the second highest German league, playing for the USC Heidelberg at only 16 years of age. After competing in the second league for two and a half years, Zipser joins the FC Bayern Munich in the 1st Basketball Bundesliga in January 2013. Playing for head coach Svetislav Pesic, Zipser continuously develops and refines his game and gains valuable experience in international competitions, all the while earning more and more playing time. The highlight of his time with the FC Bayern is winning the German championship in 2014.

In 2015, Zipser becomes an important part of the German men’s national team. In the same year, he is a member of the DBB-Team’s starting five alongside Dirk Nowitzki and Dennis Schröder at the European championship.

In June 2016, after three years in the Bavarian state capital, Zipser is selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 48th overall pick in the NBA draft. In his first season in the league, he already earns a spot in the Bulls’ rotation and manages to make the Playoffs with his team.

Hi everybody!

I hope you all had a great first couple of months of 2018. I used the opportunity to recover and recuperate during the All-Star break.

Hi everybody!

The NBA season is over a month old - and to be honest: So far it hasn’t been going the way I had hoped.

Hi everybody!

Finally, here we go again! Almost five months without a real, competitive game are simply too long.

Hi everybody!

I hope you enjoyed the playoffs and are ready for summertime. It has been quite a while since the last blog entry. I wanted to wait until the situation regarding my injury was resolved before giving you an update. That's the case now.

In a prior post I told you that I had been back and healthy after my injury following the All-Star break. However, after only a short time back on the court the pain returned, the injury had been reaggravated. Ultimately, I decided not to play in the remaining games of the season and to try and let my foot heal.

preview

A little over a month after the end of the regular season my foot was examined by expert physicians in Munich. Unfortunately a fatigue fracture was discovered. Apparently I had been playing with a fatigue fracture for several months. Only a few days after the diagnosis I underwent surgery in Tübingen. Currently I'm rehabbing in my hometown Heidelberg. Surgery went well and I can only look at the upcoming season very optimistically. I'm really looking forward to playing next season, being healthy and not having to deal with the injury anymore.

Sadly, I won't be able to play for the German squad in the first national team window of the summer. I had been looking forward to it very much – now I'll be rooting for them in front of the screen.

preview preview

Back to last season. In general it was a strange one for all of us in Chicago. We had a really good and focused training camp. Then, however, at the start of the season, we had a very rough time and nothing was going our way. One reason for that was that several players who would become extremely important for us during the further course of the season could not participate at the beginning.

In December we finally found our rhythm. We played our best ball of the season in that phase. But it remained a constant up and down the whole season long. And that wasn't only the case for the team as a whole but also for my injury and me personally. At one point I had a short stint in the G-League. That was extremely important for me. Because afterwards I was in a way better grove and had a number of strong games for the Bulls.

I can say definitively, that I don't want to experience another season like the last one in many ways. The course of action of many NBA teams – especially near the end of seasons - does not match my ideas. I play to win.

Still, despite all hitches I've become a better player this past year. I've gained important experience and particularly my jump shot has improved. Next year I'll be back at it with all I've got.

In the near future a real highlight will be coming up. I'm very excited about it and will tell you about it in the next blog entry.

So long!
Paul

Hi everybody!

I hope you all had a great first couple of months of 2018. I used the opportunity to recover and recuperate during the All-Star break. On Thursday, the day after our game against Toronto my wife Mira and I headed to Los Angeles. Right upon arrival we had the chance to attend the preview of Black Panther. Go check it out, definitely a must watch!

We spent the time in LA with Maxi Kleber – my teammate on the German national team – and his Girlfriend. We rented a car together and explored the City and its vicinity. Of course, on the second night we attended the Rising Stars Challenge with Kris and Lauri.

preview preview

All in all, we had a really relaxed few days in LA. A lot of good food, lots of sun. We even went into the ocean – in February! On my birthday I treated myself to a new pair of sunglasses at the famous Venice Beach. We had the time to relax and could spend the day exactly as I had imagined.

When we were back in Chicago friends from Germany came to visit. Maxi and the Mavs also were here shortly after the All-Star break. The night before the game against Dallas all of us went to a bar to play some table tennis. The evening was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed it.

But now to the sport which really counts: After our strong December we’ve been struggling so far in the new year. We had a lot of completely unnecessary losses. Our focus for the last weeks of the season will mainly be on the development of the young players. Since the All-Star break Coach Hoiberg has been changing up our starting lineup and rotation every five games. We’ll see what we can get out of the playing time in the remaining weeks of the season.

I personally was in a good groove at the beginning of the year and consistently got my ten to twelve minutes each game. Then Zach came back after a long absence due to his injury. As a result, I was out of the rotation for the time being. Our coach communicated it to me in a fair and open way, though.

Subsequently I practiced hard, spent plenty of time in the weight room, put up a lot of shots, and worked out individually. The guys in the rotation kept getting consistent minutes. Therefore, I saw the G League as a good option for me to keep my rhythm. I played two games in two nights there. That did wonders for my confidence.

preview

When suddenly several of the Bulls’ 4-guys were sidelined I got playing time once again. I made the best of the opportunity until the All-Star break. Sometimes I was on the floor for 20 minutes sometimes even 30 minutes. After the break I was having troubles with my foot and had to sit out several games. Now, however, I’m recovered and looking forward to the last weeks of the season.

I hope you all stay tuned and keep supporting us!

So long!
Paul

Hi everybody!

First of all, I hope that you had a Merry Christmas and have started the new year off well. In the NBA it can be a little complicated to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Last season, for example, we were in San Antonio on the 24th and 25th. Sure, Christmas in a different city and with your teammates can be nice, too. But it’s just not the same as celebrating at home with your family.

This year we were lucky and the schedule was more favorable for us. Thank goodness! After our road game in Boston on the 23rd we flew straight back to Chicago. On Christmas Eve we had a regular practice in the morning before having the rest of the day off. My sister Anne was here to visit. Naturally, I really enjoyed that. Anne, Mira, and I had a lovely celebration in German tradition on the 24th. Of course, the evening wouldn’t have been complete without good food and lots of presents.

preview

On the 25th we had the whole day off and we went outside for a bit. But not for too long – it was freezing up here in Chicago, after all. So we went to the cinema and watched the new Star Wars movie. This Episode was much more to my liking than the last one. I’m already looking forward to the next one.

Between Christmas and New Year it was back to the usual NBA routine. On New Year’s Eve we played at Washington in the afternoon. Afterwards we headed straight back to Chicago. I was home at 9 o’clock in the evening – in time to go out for a nice dinner with Anne and Mira. We didn’t see much of the fireworks at night. In Illinois the city arranges a fireworks display of about 20 minutes. Back in Germany it’s different. There, everybody can launch their own private fireworks and firecrackers. For that I miss Germany. I used to really like that part of New Year’s Eve. Also, we didn’t really have a party this year since we had a game on January 1st.

preview

Now, regarding basketball: After three losses early in December we won ten of the remaining 13 games. Overall we had a really good month. We defended well for the most part and could then utilize our strengths. Our quick guys went off in transition and frequently we got easy buckets. Now we have to maintain this kind of focus and keep taking it one game at a time. That’s exactly what makes us strong at the moment.

After my poor start to the season, I’m in really good shape mentally as well as physically now. I get similar minutes every game and I know my role. Currently, several of our players are on a roll offensively. Over the first months of the season I’ve learned not to force anything and to take the right shots. Defensively I have to step it up a notch. Against supposedly better players I perform considerably better. I know their game and what they are trying to do. With supposedly easier matchups, however, I struggle too often. I have to keep working on that.

I hope you all had a great start to the new year and wish you all the best for the upcoming months. Keep your fingers crossed for the Bulls and me.

So long!
Paul

Hi everybody!

All of a sudden, we’re rolling! A month ago, I wrote that we hadn’t quite gelled as a team yet. Now, that has changed. And it is a lot of fun!

After the blowout loss at Golden State at the end of November we knew that something had to change. Ever since, we’ve been competitive in every game. At the beginning we could keep the games close but were still losing. But for a while now we have been concentrated and have been playing good basketball. That’s why we’re currently winning games. We are clicking right now!

We have a game plan – and we execute it well. Even when we change something during the course of the game – most of the time it works. Everybody knows their role and fills it. We defend hard, communicate well, and fight for each other. We turn our good defense into offense and push the tempo. That’s exactly what we want to do. That’s our game.

preview

On top of that we have several players who are simply playing good basketball right now. We are hitting tough shots – that makes things easier, of course. Obviously, those shots won’t always be falling. When that’s the case, we’ll have to come together as a team even more and compensate for it as a group. Right now, we are highly motivated. We have the focus and the hunger to win every game and we’re giving it all we’ve got every single night.

I personally feel much better, too – physically and mentally. At the start of the season I was trying to force some things. That’s not my game. And as a result, my performance decreased. I had no rhythm. That’s back now. The game in Denver was the turning point for me. There I played really well which gave me a big confidence boost. Now I try to be aggressive when it makes sense, when the team needs it. I feel very comfortable with that.

preview

Off the court, my wife Mira and I moved within Chicago. We live in the West Loop close to the arena now. Mira has taken charge of arranging the flat – she has a lot on her plate with that at the moment. We already feel at home at our new place, though. Early in December the photographer Michael Krug visited me in Chicago. If you should need some cool pictures taken, he definitely is your guy. Just check out his website!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! My next blog entry will go online early in 2018. Then I will tell you about the holidays in the midst of a busy NBA schedule.

So long!
Paul

Hi everybody!

The NBA season is over a month old - and to be honest: So far it hasn’t been going the way I had hoped. So far I just haven’t found my rhythm. My shot isn’t falling and as a result I’m not playing with a lot of confidence at the moment.

We haven’t quite gelled as a team yet, either, and our fine tuning has been subpar. Time and again we make simple mistakes. We have to eliminate those – or else it will remain tough for us going forward. And we have shown that we can actually do better. I remember the road game in Orlando for example. There we defended well, made the right decisions on offense, and ended up winning by a big margin.

At this point, it’s essential to keep working hard. For me, but also for the whole team. There are still a lot of games left to play and it is important to take advantage of any arising opportunities. I definitely remain optimistic and will keep pushing hard.

It shouldn´t come as a big surprise that we often ended up being tired during our preseason games. But it paid off: we’re in really good shape right now! We can be satisfied with the games so far. As long as we’ve defended hard we’ve been right in the mix. Personally, I started off fairly well and was hitting my shots in the beginning. But then the fatigue caught up with me, too – the shots weren’t falling anymore.

Now, recently we had a road trip against Western Conference teams. Phoenix, the Lakers, Utah, and Golden State were our opponents. After the home win against Charlotte we were off to Arizona on Saturday. The procedure at the airport is always very comfortable for us. We park only 20 meters away from the airfield. After a short security check it takes only three minutes and we are on the airplane.

On the road, game days always follow the same pattern. After breakfast, shootaround or walkthrough take place in the hotel or the arena. Then, after lunch, we have several hours for ourselves before the game starts. The same night the plane takes us to the next city. Off days are a little bit different. In the mornings we either have team practice or an optional individual workout. In the evenings we sometimes have a meal at a restaurant together. More about this later.

When I think back to this last road trip, though, two things come to mind in particular: In LA, together with Cristiano Felicio and one of our supporting coaches, I let my drone fly – not far from the Hollywood Sign! Simply incredible. The footage you get… Unbelievable! In Chicago I use the drone a lot, too. Especially night shots with the skyline in the background are stunning. I also fondly think back to our Thanksgiving dinner in San Francisco. That was a real feast on Thursday! It was nice to spend the evening with the whole team for a change.

preview preview preview

In other respects, I can tell you that our new teammate Kay Felder is not only really, really small but also incredibly funny. With him you can have a lot of fun. With our rookie Lauri Markkanen I get along really well, too. As a whole we have a team with a lot of cool guys. Naturally, this makes such long periods on the road much more enjoyable.

Oh yeah, back to the topic of restaurants. Not really an insiders’ tip anymore but if you are in Los Angeles a visit to the In-N-Out Burger is a must. There’s no way around it! In Chicago I really like Nando’s. It’s exactly the right address for all the chicken lovers among you.

Apart from that, I hope you all are enjoying the NBA once again this year. I, for one, am definitely looking forward to the remainder of the season.

So long!
Paul

Paul Zipser and Maximilian Kleber in preseason 2017 - preview

18.10.2017

Hi everybody!

Finally, here we go again! Almost five months without a real, competitive game are simply too long.

Of course I spent the summer working on my game. Now, at long last, it’s time: soon our first regular season game will tip off in Toronto!

After that everyone was all the more motivated for training camp. Every single day we worked hard on gameplay and fitness. Not always fun but very important. There was another difference to last year: This time, no matter if it was a gameday or not we mostly maintained the same workout routine and kept going hard. That’s very unusual. Normally, frequency and intensity of the practice sessions are adapted to scheduled games.

It shouldn´t come as a big surprise that we often ended up being tired during our preseason games. But it paid off: we’re in really good shape right now! We can be satisfied with the games so far. As long as we’ve defended hard we’ve been right in the mix. Personally, I started off fairly well and was hitting my shots in the beginning. But then the fatigue caught up with me, too – the shots weren’t falling anymore.

Of course I was looking forward to the game in Dallas. As you might know, since this season it’s not only Dirk who’s playing for the Mavs but also another guy I know from back home – Maxi Kleber. By coincidence we all were in the weight room at the same time before the game and could joke around a little. Then during the game I was talking to Dirk from time to time – always extremely amusing. Before and after the game I had the chance to chat some more with Maxi.

Now, finally, here we go again! As a group we want to work hard, as a young team we want to grow, and then let’s just see what we can accomplish. I personally? I’ve learned to help leading the team with my style of play. I still see my main job at the defensive end. Additionally, I want to be more aggressive offensively, take more shots without forcing anything. Every night I want to give the team whatever is needed.

On Thursday our season will start in Toronto – I hope you all are just as excited as I am!

So long!
Paul
