Thank you for stopping by my website. The primary goal for my website is to help both female and male basketball players to achieve their aspirations of playing professional basketball in Europe. Whether it be through 1 on 1 consultations providing useful information, 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
- 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
