Bucket List

6. Get paid to play basketball

Apparently becoming a professional athlete is a lot more complicated than most can imagine.  I’ve spent countless hours in the gym lifting, training, and perfecting my craft, but never was able to quite make it to the NBA.  However, I’ve played in the ABA, WBA, invited to the CBA and an NBDL tryout.  Won a contest sponsored by the Atlanta Hawks and won season tickets behind their bench.  But the highest level I’ve played at this point is the DBA (Darwin Basketball Association).  It was the highest level in the Northern Territory in Australia.  I also recently finished a season playing in the National League in England.  All are considered professional basketball and I am grateful for each and every opportunity that has been given to me…
