Thank you for stopping by my website. My primary goal is to help basketball players to achieve their aspirations of playing professional basketball overseas. Whether it be through Mentoring, 1 on 1 consultations, through my book SAME NAME DIFFERENT GAME, or by interviewing interesting people from the basketball world with my podcast THE EUROSTEP, hopefully, I can educate, inspire, and entertain.
Player Education Specialist
Are you a basketball player looking to take your talents overseas? Going pro in Europe can be a rewarding career move, but it’s also a whole different game with a steep learning curve. I aim to flatten that curve and help you avoid the mistakes and pitfalls that prevent many players from succeeding in European pro basketball.
I draw from experience of almost 30 years of playing, coaching, and living in Europe. I played 13 seasons in 6 countries and I coached another 8 seasons in Germany where I still live. I know what it takes to succeed overseas.
I cover essential topics like:
- Finding An Agent
- Potential Agent Questions
- Agent/Player Contract Information
- Standard European Contract Information
- Decision Making (country/league/team)
- Expectations Upon Arrival
- European Preseason
- Money Management
- Health Care Issues
- The Season
- On-Court Adjustments/Video Analysis
- Injury Issues
- Fired (what to do)
- Exit Strategy (end of season)
- Tax Information
- Off-Season Considerations
- Mentoring Session
- Post Season Plays – Career Guidance After Sports
