Here I do my best to paint pictures of my playing experiences. My #1 goal in starting this site and writing about this stuff was to make the stories enjoyable and share-worthy, for even those who are not interested in basketball. For a full-length look into my early days in hoops, get my book “Buy A Game”; for aspiring professional players, there’s The Overseas Basketball Blueprint.   
My basketball ability featured some God-given, talent, but not that much — I mean, I wasn’t recruited out of high school and played college basketball at the Division 3 level (read below to learn about both). My best talent is the discipline to be persistent. My game emerged from hours of blind practice, way before you could learn from some person online.

According to Eurobasket, there were 6,766 ex-college players playing in professional basketball leagues outside of the USA in 2018. That places in pro basketball players in the top (less than) 1% of performers in the fastest-growing sport there is.

 

These aren’t quite all my playing experiences; just the ones I wrote about. I will soon do a book on all my pro ball experience.

  1. Hello Dre,

    When I am on the court playing with people who I am familiar with, I do not do well. The people who I play with don’t even put in work but I do. What is it that I need to be dominating? I do okay when I play with them. I get blocked sometimes and etc. Thank You!

  2. dre, how can i be the best player for my team? because my teammates are always nervous in games.

  3. What do I do about a politics based basketball team? I recently got cut from the basketball team after scoring 15 points and having 8 assist in the tryout game. I thought I did amazing. My handles were there my mental was there and I played a really good game. Just to be cut so they had room for the players who couldn’t be there to “tryout”. I’ve busted my butt for the past 3 years and I am an elite scorer what should I do. The aau ball is extremely expensive and I can’t afford it please help me. Because where I Come from it’s all last names

    • 1) Drop all excuses
      2) Improve your game. There are no perfect players
      3) Find a team or find a new excuse. There are thousands of basketball teams in the world. If you’re a player you’ll be playing. If you’re not out there playing no one will care about your explanations.
