00:00:00
back with my last video of the night.
00:00:02
This video is which players do.
00:00:06
I'm gonna talk about men's and women's in his video, By the way, Ah, play overseas.
00:00:10
J.
00:00:11
Lee Go to college.
00:00:13
Of course, that doesn't apply for WNBA players that b b W b a plate w nbr excuses w N b A Players is overseas.
00:00:23
Should I take an assistant coaching job in N B? A team shall try on TV, so it's different rules for them.
00:00:30
I'll talk about them first.
00:00:32
Um, then I'll talk about the men next.
00:00:34
So what should a player do? We're gonna talk about this that on this video, Like I said of the men's and women's, I'm gonna talk with women first before I get incident.
00:00:43
Don't forget to follow me at simply me.
00:00:45
Underscore Avery on Twitter.
00:00:47
I am a part of the unwrapped Sports Network.
00:00:51
Now let's get into it.
00:00:52
Women now the W. B A season.
00:00:55
The draft happens in April.
00:00:59
Camp starts, I think the late April early May for a W B A.
00:01:05
They played through.
00:01:06
I want to say October or September.
00:01:10
I'm not quite sure.
00:01:11
Let me look at that and see when a WNBA Finals would be when it was last year.
00:01:17
Let's look at that W N B A Finals 2019 I'm pretty sure was.
00:01:27
Let me see what you did in September October, September 29th through October 10th so they don't get it in their seasons.
00:01:38
October 10th because they went to five games, Rosten Mystics defeated the Connecticut Sun in five games.
00:01:45
I do remember that because I watched it so they don't end their season.
00:01:49
If you make it, uh, through the playoffs to October until October 10 they have, like a week or two.
00:01:57
Maybe even they have to go play over.
00:01:59
See? So what if you don't want to play overseas? What if you want to do something meaningful? My amore is an example.
00:02:06
One of my favorite college players tow watch, drafted by the Minnesota Lynx.
00:02:10
I think she had a couple of championships.
00:02:13
She decided that she wants to help Mom, a guy she want to get into criminal justice reform.
00:02:19
Let me let me say that that's what she's doing criminal justice reform, and she's currently helping a guy get off death row, which is very admirable, she said.
00:02:30
that basketball can wait for now, but this is the second season she will miss.
00:02:34
She missed last season, and then she will miss this season.
00:02:37
She already announced that she's not gonna play this season.
00:02:41
She has a brand deal with Jordan, so I'm pretty sure Jordan Jordan brand deal is supporting her.
00:02:47
The W B A supports our and, of course, her fans.
00:02:51
Fans like me.
00:02:52
I'm a huge fan of my more.
00:02:53
I support her as well.
00:02:55
You have to do something that's meaningful outside of your passion.
00:02:59
So if your passion is basketball, you usually have a charity or something that's meaningful to you.
00:03:03
And this was meaningful to my amore.
00:03:06
So I'm really proud of my more for doing that, taking a different road of then just playing overseas WNBA overseas WNBA because that gets tiring and a lot of W B put a lot of W N B A players.
00:03:20
Excuse me, take a, um, winner.
00:03:24
A false last winter off red, white and blue socks.
00:03:28
Thank you for drawing the broadcast.
00:03:29
I appreciate it.
00:03:30
A lot of WNBA players saying, Hey, I don't want to play overseas.
00:03:33
****.
00:03:34
I want to take a break.
00:03:35
I want to enjoy this time with my family.
00:03:37
Um, and that's what they do.
00:03:39
You have money.
00:03:41
They say that I've had a party n b a players that they went, ah, heart of MBA play excuse and say that women are better with money than men.
00:03:51
That's probably true.
00:03:52
I'm not gonna get into that.
00:03:53
But I had an N b A player.
00:03:55
I heard him say that in an interview.
00:03:57
So when they come, they don't make much.
00:03:59
Money is n.
00:04:01
B A.
00:04:02
Players do, but they don't spend as much either.
00:04:04
I think the minimum, the rookie minimum salary, I think the rookie salary Russell brand of Stewart said correctly, it's $75,000.
00:04:11
She's still on her rookie deal, and she's only making 75 grand here before Texas.
00:04:18
They raise the W B A salary, but they make so much more money overseas and it's not text, so that's very important and allowed times in their contracts.
00:04:27
Their housing is already paid for, so your housing is pay for.
00:04:32
If you have a good agent, got a good contract, your housing is paid for.
00:04:36
You might get a car, something overseas.
00:04:38
I know something.
00:04:39
Maybe a WNBA players get car.
00:04:41
There were scenes, um, shopping, you know, shop overseas a lot cheaper as well.
00:04:47
The food is cheaper and things like that.
00:04:50
So it's cheaper flew over there.
00:04:52
From what I've heard, Been a live in America, of course, depending on where you are.
00:04:58
Uh, so that really takes a toll on your body.
00:05:02
When you're taking on 2 to 3 weeks off and then you're back at it, you're going into the W B a season.
00:05:07
So get down, get down W b A. You're going overseas.
00:05:11
You know what I was seeing? You're going back to W.
00:05:12
And that's a repeated cycle.
00:05:14
Repeated cycle.
00:05:15
But a lot of women that play basketball W d A.
00:05:18
Also have their degrees and some women to play WNBA only go back and get their master's degree and then come back to W B A.
00:05:28
When the season starts.
00:05:29
Because by the time the season starts, you're done with classes.
00:05:32
Well, yeah, um, you would be You could do the spring semester, but she couldn't do the fall semester.
00:05:45
You have to do the fall semester one lie and do the spring semester in class because from January to May, um, you don't have any.
00:05:55
You don't have any obligations towards the W B A.
00:06:00
In the battle time.
00:06:01
May hits beginning of May hit, then you're done with school.
00:06:04
You graduate from school and you can go to your W B 18 whereas in the fall you would have to excuse me.
00:06:10
If you make see James, he's from Ah Rev Sports Network.
00:06:15
You guys should give him a follow.
00:06:16
Thank you for drawing the broadcast.
00:06:18
I appreciate it.
00:06:19
If you're in the fall, you take those online classes because you're still playing in your W B a season.
00:06:24
So I don't know what I know.
00:06:25
A lot of WNBA players it go get their master's degree.
00:06:28
So therefore, when they're tired of playing basketball, they saved up enough money.
00:06:32
The naked retire on their own terms.
00:06:34
A lot of women retire on their own terms.
00:06:38
Men. Not so much.
00:06:40
I've heard I talked to a guy, he said his ego got the best of him, and he should quit playing basketball long time ago when your ego casino males have this ego.
00:06:50
For some reason, some women do, too, but mills are known to have the ego like I could do this forever.
00:06:56
But nothing lasts forever in Father Time is relentless when Father Time hits you.
00:07:03
You know, it was like, Okay, it's time to give it up.
00:07:06
I did find something else to do.
00:07:08
It's harder for men to do that than women.
00:07:11
Um, I don't know why, but when I talked to women are like, man, it was tough for me to give it up.
00:07:15
I got my master's degree.
00:07:16
I got experience doing this Doing that.
00:07:19
Um, I got some nonprofit.
00:07:22
I have a friend.
00:07:23
She had a nonprofit foundation.
00:07:24
She started working for things like that so that you have to find your passion outside of sports.
00:07:30
Yes, sports can still be in your life, But if you find a passionate sergeant sports, it won't be so hard to give it up.
00:07:36
Kobe found a passion outside of sports.
00:07:38
It kind of It was his daughter she got in the basketball, so he found a passion.
00:07:45
With that, he found a passionate right about basketball.
00:07:47
It could still be in sports, but, um, it could do, you could do something else with that is well, like he found that.
00:07:57
Okay, My daughter is really good.
00:07:58
Like you got a whole a u t.
00:08:01
And then he won that, um, Oscar for the book he wrote, which was beautiful.
00:08:12
Um, players can make way more money.
00:08:14
Um, overseas WNBA players, women players make way more money overseas.
00:08:20
Um, I just I just really, really think I got a shadow on Twitter.
00:08:34
Holy.
00:08:35
Write him back.
00:08:36
I really, really, really think, Honestly, you should do what's best for you when it comes to women playing overseas Now W N b A.
00:08:45
Players are now getting in assistant coach and jobs in the NBA.
00:08:50
Um, there's some of the NBA players now that worked with N BA teams.
00:08:54
I'm not gonna name of arms on the name some Carol Austin's with the Boston Celtics swing.
00:09:00
Cash does.
00:09:01
She's in the front office for the New Orleans Pelicans.
00:09:04
Kristi Toliver works with the Washington Wizards.
00:09:08
Of course, you guys know baking him and I talk about her a lot.
00:09:11
She works with San Antonio Spurs, so women are now thank you.
00:09:18
Women are now in a position to transition.
00:09:24
It's of the n b a.
00:09:25
More barriers of being broken for women in sports, as you guys know, So they're taking the planet w B A seasons in the summer, and they're doing their coaching jobs.
00:09:37
Um, in the off season, you me D m v.
00:09:41
Thank you for joining the broadcast.
00:09:42
I appreciate it.
00:09:44
It's becoming the game is becoming one of those things where we're transitioning.
00:09:47
I say we as women, we're transitioning in to the n B A.
00:09:51
And it's beautiful to watch because a lot of women know the game of basketball very well.
00:09:55
Some of these guys a higher have no playing experience and their lot you like.
00:10:00
Why did you hire him? Has he played? I know Kevin Durant made a sweet on Twitter, and he said they should hire more people in the n b A that have playing experience.
00:10:12
He didn't say that verbatim.
00:10:13
He says something else, but that's what he said.
00:10:16
And I really, really appreciate what the NBA has done to break those barriers to let women coach in the n b.
00:10:25
A.
00:10:26
I think that's beautiful, that the brother, the Big Brother and a little sisterly can come together and be one now TV.
00:10:35
A lot of women on TV.
00:10:38
Ah, the gum like a sister's on TV.
00:10:41
Candace Parker is on TV.
00:10:44
I enjoyed watching Karen Candace Parker got.
00:10:46
Of course, you guys know that women also cover like the Double A and WNBA draft Cara Lawson also covered the WNBA draft as well, so she does a lot.
00:10:56
But I really enjoy watching Candace Parker on TV.
00:11:00
She has a podcast with it's called Let Low and Parker that I watch a lot, and I really appreciate that because she has great takes about N B A.
00:11:09
Players, men and women have different takes, sometimes about players in general.
00:11:16
But I enjoy watching both.
00:11:18
Of course I'm a woman.
00:11:19
So our support women and I'm also a woman to support me and as well.
00:11:23
So I really enjoyed watching tennis park on TV.
00:11:26
Um, Skylar Diggins interned for ESPN when she was in college, so that was, well, Skylar Diggins Smith.
00:11:34
Now, excuse me, guys, she, scholar Dig and Smith.
00:11:36
Now she got married.
00:11:37
She entered when she was in college, and that was, she said.
00:11:39
That was one of the best experiences of her life was interning for ESPN being allowed to intern for ESPN because you have to transition when you're playing careers over, you have to make a transition now in 2018.
00:11:52
1981 w n b A players played overseas.
00:11:57
Now that's a lot off.
00:11:58
That's a lot of players to play overseas.
00:12:01
There aren't very many teams in the w B A.
00:12:04
So any one of those players I would say about off the top of my head, I'm gonna guess probably about 60 to 70% of players play over seasoned W B A.
00:12:14
It might be higher than it.
00:12:16
I'll try to look up those percentages and get back to you guys, but that's women.
00:12:20
That's how I feel about women playing overseas.
00:12:22
Um, I want to start with them first just because I don't talk about women's sports on here a lot, but I am going to start talking about women's sports more.
00:12:31
But I said this is a good topic for men and women because women mainly play overseas longer than men will.
00:12:40
They're more prone to play overseas should I say more than me and men are more prone.
00:12:44
Ago, Geely or Envy ate the MBA route, which the D League an MBA, are now affiliated one another because you have those two way contract.
00:12:53
Now let's talk about the men.
00:12:56
Let's break down the mid.
00:12:58
Okay, so I have G league versus overseas.
00:13:01
I wrote that down in my notes, but I'm gonna talk about Overseas Maur than the D League because I really don't wash the D League much, even though I probably should.
00:13:11
I don't watch it as much as I should.
00:13:13
So I will talk about receipts because I know more guys that play overseas that playing Aggie Leak.
00:13:19
I'm just because guys I play with college ball wit and things like that.
00:13:22
So we have money, opportunity, family competition, exposure, the cost of living location as huge.
00:13:31
I heard about this huge.
00:13:32
I'm gonna talk about that, too.
00:13:33
Facilities Open investigation or Emmanuel Mudiay had an open investigation.
00:13:38
That's why he played overseas.
00:13:41
The experience there's a battle is your only of the euro leagues.
00:13:46
Better than the Geely is a battle with that.
00:13:50
Your league's up definitely better than college players.
00:13:52
You're gonna play against education.
00:13:55
Do I want to get my education? Can I play overseas and do online court? What can I do just to stay sharp mentally education wise coach and staff coaching staff is huge.
00:14:08
Is a huge part of your development.
00:14:10
The D League used to be the developmental league they used to call.
00:14:13
The dealer.
00:14:14
Used to be the developmental league.
00:14:15
It's still a developmental league.
00:14:17
They just call it the D League now, because Gatorade is their sponsor.
00:14:19
Get a rate league.
00:14:21
So So what do I want to tackle first money now in a GE Li, you don't make much.
00:14:28
I know they just got a bump in their salary.
00:14:31
I talked to a guy that was in the D League when it was the D League.
00:14:35
So this was when it was the leak.
00:14:36
He said he made about 25,000.
00:14:40
Robert, thank you for joining the broadcast.
00:14:42
I appreciate it.
00:14:43
He made about 25,000 for five months, I said, So what else do you do like in the old enough? Fail? You guys remember NFL players usedto playing in a field and still have full time jobs? Um, after the seasons were over until the NFL just start bringing in more money.
00:14:58
But I remember Coach Harm Edwards was talking about how guys I used to go work on the railroad in single play in the NFL.
00:15:06
Uh, but I asked myself, What else do you do? He said, Well, I have a baby on the way.
00:15:10
I have a wife, She works, I work And I'm working really hard to get on the NBA roster because once you get on an MBA roster, you can make more money.
00:15:20
And he said, The D League adjust.
00:15:22
It just isn't paying much right now, But that's before they start getting more popular.
00:15:29
This was probably in 2000.
00:15:31
I want to say Fort, this was 2014 hosted the D League then and he didn't make much money at all.
00:15:37
25,000 actually below the party line in Oklahoma.
00:15:40
I live in Oklahoma is actually below the party line, so there's not very much money, especially you have a family to take care of.
00:15:46
You have a child on the way.
00:15:47
That's not very much money.
00:15:49
But he loved the game of basketball, he said. I don't want to give it up.
00:15:52
And he said he couldn't go play over scenes where he could make six figures and then bring it back home to his family, but he would have to move his family overseas because he would be overseas, Um, a good period of time.
00:16:06
And so he came back to the league and what Dele grand he wants.
00:16:10
Hopefully, you get a call up to go to the MBA, but it's not guaranteed now.
00:16:15
Opportunity, opportunity to play overseas.
00:16:21
Opportunity to play in a G league now, like I No.
00:16:26
But with these, eh? NBA draft camps and things like that, you can get the opportunity.
00:16:32
The opportunity will come if you just be patient, But some guys can't be patient.
00:16:39
Like I said, money is a big issue in a lot of guys lives.
00:16:44
So if you've got a family, you're starting a family.
00:16:46
You got money.
00:16:47
You need to have to be able to support their family.
00:16:51
Then a lot of guys sacrifice that and go play overseas.
00:16:54
But that opportunity energy leak is there because a lot of NBA scouts are watching Julie games.
00:17:00
Of course, also, a lot of NBA scouts are watching overseas games as well, but their G league has a two way contract now, so you can go play some guys energy.
00:17:09
We get called up for the next home game like you could play every single day of the week.
00:17:13
I know for the Oklahoma City blue that's Oklahoma City.
00:17:16
Thought of Julie team Um, Dorit was playing in a G lead and he would get called up to play the next night.
00:17:23
So they playing well.
00:17:25
They used to play and tell us I feel that way right now, but Dorit would go player.
00:17:31
Jean Louis came and get called Hope and come play in the N B a game the next day.
00:17:36
If she was at home or they will fly him out, he would play the way game.
00:17:40
So opportunity is huge for both.
00:17:43
Now we'll say the G League I would give the Geely one up on opportunity just because it's a two way street now overseas, you have to get out of your contract like I did a video earlier.
00:17:53
Talk about the NBA draft.
00:17:55
I think overseas.
00:17:57
I'm thinking this.
00:17:58
I have to do some research.
00:17:59
You have to get out of your contract.
00:18:01
I think overseas to be able to sign the NBA contract.
00:18:06
I want to say that's how it's done, but I have to do some more research on it.
00:18:10
Um, so opportunity is there.
00:18:11
But I just think that Julie gives a little bit more opportunity because you're being exposed on national television.
00:18:17
Whereas overseas you're playing, you can watch probably those games on YouTube.
00:18:21
If one of your family members are your friends, send you the link to the game.
00:18:25
That's how usedto watch overseas games.
00:18:27
I had a link that I would watch the games with family.
00:18:30
I'll talk a little bit about this family.
00:18:33
You leave your family for so many months at a time.
00:18:36
Just think about this.
00:18:38
Your 18 year old kid and you just got out of college.
00:18:43
I mean, you just got out of high school.
00:18:44
Excuse me? Mmm.
00:18:46
You've been at home your whole life.
00:18:48
You've been home basically your whole life.
00:18:51
Would you rather go overseas and make the money? What? Would you rather go to college for a couple of years, maybe one or two years, and know that Hey, home is not far.
00:19:01
My family's not far cannot handle plan overseas and plant it receives is a lot to handle.
00:19:06
Guys is a whole lot to handle.
00:19:09
Culture is different.
00:19:12
You have to learn different languages.
00:19:14
The food is different.
00:19:16
The money is getting You're getting paid.
00:19:19
But your pain You're paying a price to get paid.
00:19:23
Um, you are paying a huge price to get paid the money that you're getting paid.
00:19:28
So it is very, very, very important that you make sure that you're ready for that.
00:19:34
Emmanuel Moody A.

I'll bring him up a lot.
00:19:37
He didn't have a choice.
00:19:38
Um, he said, I'm gonna go play overseas.
00:19:41
I think he was committed to I want to say Larry Brown was coaching the team.
00:19:46
Was it s And you it had to be nesting you.
00:19:49
I think it was Sonu he was committed to.
00:19:51
Like I said, I have to look at me like I'm pulling it up right now because he was committed to ah college and he decided, You know what? I'm a go overseas.
00:20:01
He had an open investigation along as well.
00:20:04
A seaman. You moody a.
00:20:13
But it for sm.
00:20:14
Ugh.
00:20:15
I was right.
00:20:16
Like being like he was committed to play for s and new, But he had an opening vase investigation.
00:20:21
His family was going through a lot.
00:20:22
So you decide to play over seats.
00:20:24
So family cannot cannot get snatched away from my family Going overseas now going from state to state.
00:20:31
That's a little different because you know, you can hop on a plane boom or you might play for your hometown team.
00:20:35
Oh, I could go down the road and get Mom's home cooking there.
00:20:38
She couldn't do my laundry and things like the overseas you you hit adulthood.
00:20:42
So did you stuff up that playing? You gotta don't put both.
00:20:45
My adulthood has hit you.
00:20:46
You no longer have family issues, you and your teammates.
00:20:50
And hopefully you have teammates to speak English because I heard that was one thing that is very difficult to deal with as well.
00:20:57
That transition is very difficult.
00:21:00
It's awful about family.
00:21:01
Let's go competition now.
00:21:03
The competition in the D League versus Overseas versus College.
00:21:07
I read an article on this about the competition.
00:21:11
I have a stack up.
00:21:12
I'm gonna give you my opinion.
00:21:15
The euro leaks for men are the talent is very spread out like it's very spread out in Europe.
00:21:23
The tower is spread out in the D League.
00:21:25
These air guys that are really playing for an opportunity a check and exposure.
00:21:33
That's what the D League is.
00:21:34
So the D League's Julie's and my pain is a bunch of dogs, like they're like, Look, I need to get this to I am on this two way deal.
00:21:42
Um, I'm trying to get moved up.
00:21:44
I'm trying to play in the league.
00:21:47
Um, overseas is more like Okay, I'm trying to to my game, because over Europe, basketball in the NBA basketball are not staying.
00:21:56
They play a different type of basketball.
00:21:59
They should the ball a lot more.
00:22:01
They pass and cut a lot more.
00:22:03
They're better shooters.
00:22:05
Um, they're just not as athletic.
00:22:09
Like NBA players were just freakishly athletic.
00:22:11
If you watch Luca dockage play, that gives you a pretty good idea of how overseas players play.
00:22:17
Manu Ginobili was a perfect example of that.
00:22:21
Tony Parker was a good example of that.
00:22:23
Bores de ao um was a good example of that is, well, I know I named some Spurs.
00:22:30
I love the Spurs.
00:22:31
I love watching him growing up, but yeah, the competition in Europe is spread out in the D League.
00:22:38
These guys are fighting every single night every single night for a roster spot.
00:22:42
Hey, get called a pay.
00:22:44
You're going to be on the road with the Lakers.
00:22:46
Pack your banks, you got a 10 day contract and it's it's fierce, fierce now on overseas basketball.
00:22:54
Like I said, their game is more for this.
00:22:56
They're more finesse.
00:22:58
Um, you can just tell by the way they play.
00:23:00
If you guys watch a feeble basketball, uh, you can just tell by the way they play.
00:23:06
They're so detail oriented the way they passed the way they could, because they can't rely on their athletic ability.
00:23:13
A lot of them don't rely on their athletic ability in the n b A.
00:23:17
A lot of players allowed an athletic ability.
00:23:20
I'm just gonna be honest with that.
00:23:21
A lot of players are very athletic, but not quite, you know, polished or finished products.
00:23:28
There are a lot of those type of guys in the n b A.
00:23:31
That they know the game of basketball.
00:23:33
Yeah, they know they can do it, but they let their athletic that athleticism overshadow their skills.
00:23:41
Sometimes, because I'm so athletic, I can do this.
00:23:44
But the older you get, the more skilled you become because like I say, Father, Time is undefeated.
00:23:50
The athleticism goes away.
00:23:51
So I need a jump shot.
00:23:53
Um oh, I need to learn footwork.
00:23:56
Oh, I need Thio.
00:23:58
Becoming a better passer can happen, but that's best bike.
00:24:02
You even either you have it either.
00:24:04
You're just a natural Born Chris Paul Magic Johnson and John stocked in, um, Mark Jackson, Rajon Rondo, LeBron James Lucas Born with that passing ability.
00:24:21
Um, I'm not gonna name everybody, but you guys get catch my drift.
00:24:27
That floor vision.
00:24:28
Steve Nash, that court and floor vision it can come.
00:24:35
But you have that.
00:24:36
Like when LeBron stepped into the league, we're like, Okay, he's gonna have a great passing ability. Chris, Paul.
00:24:42
We already knew that people called him Point God for a reason.
00:24:45
John Stockton.
00:24:47
He leads He's all time leader in India. Assists.
00:24:50
I don't know if anybody's want to catch him.
00:24:53
We'll see of LeBron and Chris. Paul do.
00:24:56
But yes, the competition overseas is not as fierce as it is in the D League.
00:25:03
In my opinion, would you rather play in the D League overseas if you're going money your plan over seats.
00:25:08
If you're going opportunity, I would play in a D League. That's my opinion.
00:25:14
Cost of living now, Like I told you guys before I told you that story before he was only making $25,000.
00:25:20
Now the cost living overseas.
00:25:22
If you have a good agent, you're making six figures.
00:25:25
You're not playing paying for a place to stay and you have a car.
00:25:29
So your coffee living is pretty much taken care off in his tax free money.
00:25:33
So you're going over there, Your rent handled you probably planet paying a car notes on car insurance you might play Pay your facilities in your apartment wherever you live in.
00:25:42
You have a roommate, so you might be able to split that if you want to be by yourself or live without one of your buddies.
00:25:50
Maybe somebody you played in college.
00:25:51
Wait.
00:25:52
You guys both got the opportunity to play for the same team, which happens.
00:25:55
That cost of living is very low so you can send money home to Mom and Dad or Grandma.
00:26:00
Grandpa are on uncle who helped take care of you and still save money because the cops live in.
00:26:04
It's so low now here in America the paint on what city you're in.
00:26:10
You're in the cost living.
00:26:12
It's high, high and low on Oklahoma.
00:26:15
It doesn't cost much to live here, But if you go to Santa Cruz and play for the words you lied, uh, the cross living in California is a drastic difference.
00:26:25
They're living in Oklahoma, so it's very eyes.
00:26:32
What? You is all up to you.
00:26:34
In my opinion, what can you handle? What can't you handle? You know what bills you have.
00:26:39
Um, some guys like I'm tired of being broke.
00:26:41
I'm gonna make this sacrifice for overseas and stacks of money.
00:26:44
And then hopefully I get a G league whole ***got of summer league invite Indian.
00:26:48
Okay, I didn't make the team.
00:26:53
Yeah, I looked up and got their two way contract or they go undrafted in golden sees and then come back and try again this year.
00:27:02
You're a those MBA workouts.
00:27:06
That's very important location.
00:27:09
Who this matters.
00:27:11
Location, location, location.
00:27:13
Being in Europe, you're in the whole of different.
00:27:17
Well, I mean, it's not a miracle, so your location is very important.
00:27:23
I know a lot of players like to play in China, France, Greece in Italy.
00:27:31
That's actually where all the competition is.
00:27:34
That's where the most competition is.
00:27:37
Um, if you watched the Olympics, you see how good those teams are.
00:27:41
So, uh, yes, A lot of players like to play in those four parts of Europe, not China.
00:27:48
Chinese are part of your, but China has good basketball competition, especially for the women who you playing in China As a woman, you make a lot of money sidebar.
00:27:59
You play in China as a woman, you make a lot of money.
00:28:02
I think, for man is Greece.
00:28:06
I want to say, is Greece? I want to say Italy.
00:28:13
I think that's what it is for the man if I'm thinking correctly.
00:28:15
But I know for the women for sure.
00:28:17
China makes a lot of guys trying to make a lot of money.
00:28:19
So location matters.
00:28:20
You want that competition.
00:28:22
If you have, the better the competition, the more money you make.
00:28:24
I heard that as well.
00:28:26
I was told that the better competition, the more money you make.
00:28:30
So if your competition is guys trying to get into the N B A, then you make more money.
00:28:35
Of course, because the league is better the league's air better they get more exposure.
00:28:40
I mean, things like that.
00:28:41
So location matters, facilities, I heard some guys say we have to practice outside or we have to do this.
00:28:48
We have do that.
00:28:49
We don't have a weight room.
00:28:50
Facilities matter.
00:28:52
You know how when when players go on recruit visits and they're building these $1,000,000 facilities now issue big look facilities in the United States for men's basketball and football are getting ridiculous.
00:29:06
I think.
00:29:07
Oh, you is building a new facility for the softball team.
00:29:09
They went a lot, so it makes sense.
00:29:12
But the facilities are getting ridiculous here for college facilities, all received when you overseas, you might be lucky if you get a locker room.
00:29:21
From what I've heard, you might be lucky if you practice indoors.
00:29:26
You might get be lucky if you have balls to practice with.
00:29:30
If the surface is clean, so facilities do matter sometimes for the facilities don't have running water and things like that.
00:29:38
So you go to this college, you go because it just just imagine you go visit a college campus and you look around and you're in these $1,000,000 for split peas.
00:29:48
And you got a sleeping pod.
00:29:51
You got room for X box? Ah, when your name as you go, and then you look out your, um your locker, it's your pictures.
00:30:03
And you're a digital picture of you and you stroll to the right.
00:30:07
It might be your family, you scrolls or the to the right. It might be your dog.
00:30:11
I mean, they bring it all out for you for a recruit visit.
00:30:15
So imagine going from one of those facilities to say no can't play overseas.
00:30:19
Mind you, you cannot preview this facility before you decide to go do this.
00:30:23
You look in your life.
00:30:26
Okay.
00:30:27
So what do we practice? Uh, equipment.
00:30:30
Um, e got by my own shoes.
00:30:32
I gotta do this.
00:30:33
Even though you're making the money.
00:30:34
You're like, OK, what is this? See, in college, you have a nutrition program.
00:30:40
The coaching staff is a leak.
00:30:42
Now, if you look upon the seas, you might get Millie coaching staff.
00:30:45
I will say that I'm I can't say that.
00:30:48
But you just look around you in your life.
00:30:52
What is this? And you're coming from America.
00:30:54
So you coming from America to a whole new country.
00:30:58
You're like OK, but when I went to Duke, I had This is his ****.
00:31:03
But when I come here, I don't even nobody on the team.
00:31:07
You can speak English or what is this? So you're a huge culture shop That's part of facilities, I guess is, Well, it's a huge culture shock for you and you go now.
00:31:21
The only story I'd know about about open investigations is a major movie A.
00:31:24
But I'm pretty sure there are more.
00:31:27
If you have an opening the investigation on you, James Wise.
00:31:30
And indeed, he had an investigation on him. The left.
00:31:33
Malone. So he was able to play a couple of games.
00:31:35
You guys know the center from Memphis? Anfernee Hardaway is their coach.
00:31:39
Memphis was with one of those teams.
00:31:41
Everybody like Okay, they have one of the top recruiting classes in the country last year, but they had some injuries and Wiseman the incident was fixed plan with wives and they were like, Well, no, we want to let you play and we don't want to let you play.
00:31:55
We want to let you play and we don't want to let you play so open investigations is another reason why players might go play overseas.
00:32:02
Wiseman knew he would be a top five draft pick.
00:32:05
A lot of people had him.
00:32:06
Number one, But I think people have Anthony.
00:32:08
It was number one now, um, depend on the draft order. We won't know that.
00:32:12
Um, of course, but not yet.
00:32:15
Alise Alise.
00:32:16
But they played with James, wasn't so much.
00:32:19
And in James Hobson say, you know what? I think he probably talked to Penny Hardaway was like, You know what? I'm just going to sit out.
00:32:25
I'm just lonely right for NBA draft.
00:32:27
Now, could he could have went to the AMG Academy? Yes.
00:32:32
Could he probably have still been picked in the top five? Could he could have went and did that enter, if safe.
00:32:38
If you got a solid rich Paul, you guys know Darius basically took a $1,000,000 internship with new balance.
00:32:44
It's still got picked in the first round.
00:32:46
I got to work out, got the learning business of basketball a hat which policies? Agent shut out to Rich Paul.
00:32:53
I like which Paul and what he's doing for these n b A players he's really protecting them, um, as well surfaces if he had a various Baisley situation, we said, you know, I'm so it's like an entire ship.
00:33:07
Make some money workout, give better.
00:33:10
Give me a trainer, blah, blah, blah, and not go to Memphis and just do this.
00:33:14
But I think the thing about it was Anthony Hardaway had already Anfernee.
00:33:18
Excuse me, I have any Anfernee Hardaway already moved his family to Memphis, so he will the family to Memphis so he could be close to his family.
00:33:29
And he wants to attend the university of, uh, you need a team you want to attend.
00:33:34
Memphis is Well, so I think that played a part in it. Now.
00:33:38
The excitable ages played yo yo with him all season.
00:33:41
He was like, You know what? I'm just not gonna play.
00:33:43
I'm just gonna enter the draft.
00:33:44
Open investigations might have an impact on what you do to go play overseas.
00:33:49
Like I said, the only parts that I know of that I've you know, sauce so far was a milieu of moody eight exacted play overseas because of his open investigation and his financial situation with his family.
00:34:00
The experience.
00:34:03
What do you want your experience to be now overseas will give you a different type of experience.
00:34:10
The league is your different type of experience.
00:34:12
It all depends on your preference.
00:34:14
Like I said before, if you want the money, if you want low cost of living um, if you have a situation where you have open investigation, I think overseas is for you.
00:34:31
If you want opportunity.
00:34:33
If you want to stay close to your family if you want the competition.
00:34:36
If you want the exposure, the local Some J League locations are iffy, but more European locations are If you Benji lead, um, better facilities. Of course.
00:34:47
Then the experience of the D League is for you.
00:34:50
It all depends on what your situation is, whether or not what kind of experience you want.
00:34:55
The overseas is more of a finesse game.
00:34:58
G league is more doggy dog because everybody is working to get a contract overseas.
00:35:03
People like Okay, you might have signed a two a three year deal with a club, and you're like, Okay, maybe with this club for two or three years.
00:35:09
I know that I am.
00:35:11
This is I have a contract.
00:35:12
I have an Agent Bone.
00:35:14
Oh, Innogy Legal like man, I could get traded.
00:35:17
Tomorrow's one of the D League affiliate.
00:35:19
I think the D League All Star Game was now on t me if I'm not mistaken.
00:35:23
So now it's like, OK, I can get on TV, play on TV, play in front of the NBA's capture at all of these gangs even though you have overseas NBS scouts as well.
00:35:33
But the D League, you're just so close, they can just come plucked you off the team and say, Here you do 10 gate, 10 day contract.
00:35:38
I don't have to fly you from overseas and none of that They could just say, Okay, you're gonna be with the Warriors tonight.
00:35:45
You're gonna play for the worries.
00:35:46
Steve Kerr might give you a minute so you might look up.
00:35:49
So they experience All depends on you.
00:35:51
Appears on what you're looking for.
00:35:53
Education is it won't take long.
00:35:56
You give the play overseas.
00:35:58
I have some friends they've played overseas and did all our classes to get their education.
00:36:02
We're gonna go g lead and ah do online classes as well.
00:36:07
So it really depends.
00:36:09
A lot of players go back and get their degrees.
00:36:12
A lot of players go back and finish, so your education also depends on you coaching staff.
00:36:19
This is important.
00:36:22
Coaches says Coaching staffs in college, our moting you to become a man.
00:36:28
They're basically sitting in your living room.
00:36:31
Are or woman Excuse me or woman.
00:36:33
Uh, if your plan for you trying to go and see double and play for women's team, there's a lesson here, the room and I say, Hey, I enjoy your son or daughter.
00:36:43
I will have your son and arms back.
00:36:45
This is what we're gonna prepare them for And that's how it goes.
00:36:49
Um, so the coaching staff is huge.
00:36:54
A lot of these coaches Coach, Team USA.
00:36:56
I know Michalczewski does.
00:36:58
I think Coach Cow does Gino Auriemma.
00:37:01
From the women's side, he coaches Team USA.
00:37:03
So you get that coaching staff.
00:37:06
This coached NBA players.
00:37:08
These coaching staffs are getting you prepared to play at the professional level.
00:37:11
You go overseas, you are a grown man or a grown woman.
00:37:15
You are now an adult.
00:37:17
These coaching staffs are that a George out.
00:37:19
That's just a coach you and that's it.
00:37:21
So coaching staffs matter now Let me give you a little story about a player that I love watching in market.
00:37:29
He was a G League MVP.
00:37:31
Vander Blue.
00:37:32
If you guys watched Big East basketball, you know who Vander Blue is? Vander Blue.
00:37:36
He won the G League MVP in 2016 or 17.
00:37:41
He played in market from 2010 to 2 through 2013 and he went undrafted.
00:37:46
He has been on nine, eh? NBA teams.
00:37:50
He had two stints with the Lakers.
00:37:51
This is including summer league, so that's just a little small story for you guys is River small, not N B.
00:37:57
A.
00:37:59
Teen's Twice.
00:38:00
Two stints with the Lakers, including the summer leagues.
00:38:02
I'm include the summer league and neck that's you could be an M V P.
00:38:06
Of the D League and still not making an MBA.
00:38:08
It it's so hard to make it an MBA.
00:38:10
People don't understand.
00:38:12
Players ago. Undrafted.
00:38:14
My favorite on draft.
00:38:15
One of my favorite undrafted stories that I like because I enjoy watched him in college was West Matthews.
00:38:21
Wes Matthews went undrafted.
00:38:24
Yes, I said it West Nephews went undrafted and guess where he went.
00:38:28
He went to market.
00:38:29
West Matthews.
00:38:30
When I'm drafted, I washed him playing a simile.
00:38:33
He showed his butt off in the summer league.
00:38:37
He got on with the Blazers.
00:38:39
He's on with the books.
00:38:40
I mean, he's been in the n b A.
00:38:42
He's a role player, but he's been in the N b A.
00:38:45
Another player, Kendrick Nunn, went undrafted last year.
00:38:48
Guys kindred 19. I get drafted.
00:38:50
He showed out in summer league.
00:38:52
I know a lot of people were talking about how good he wasn't summer league.
00:38:55

A team with Jimmy Butler.
00:39:05
Bam in a bio.
00:39:06
Duncan Robinson, Tali hero.
00:39:08
He is the starting point heart on a team in the East.
00:39:12
That's fourth in the East, averaging over 17 points again, and he went undrafted.
00:39:17
I like him left a guy like 100 month.
00:39:20
Now let me talk about one indulgence for a little bit, and I'll be done with videos already along video one and done time.
00:39:25
Go by the numbers, guys, I'm going to start in 2000 and six.
00:39:31
There was 11 and done in 2006 there were six.
00:39:34
In 2007 there was eight.
00:39:36
Okay, now, when I say one in Don's guys, I'm sorry.
00:39:38
Need backtrack one and dines in the lotto They went in The Lotto Lotto is one through 14.
00:39:48
So these are one and done that went in the lotto.
00:39:51
Um, one through 14 you got picked 1 to 14.
00:39:55
Guys, let me start over again.
00:39:56
2006 There was 1 2007 There were 6 2008 There were 7 2009 There was 2 2000 10 4 2000 11 4 2000 12 5 2000 13 5 2000 14 7 2000 15 8 2000 16 5 2017 11 11 freshmen went into Fort 14 picks.
00:40:21
You only had two sop****res and one guy on the seats.
00:40:24
2010 in 2000.
00:40:26
Excuse me.
00:40:27
I'm in 2018.
00:40:28
I'm sorry, guys.
00:40:29
Was 10. You had one junior won sop****re.
00:40:31
One guy from over seats.
00:40:32
Guys, hold a guy.
00:40:33
Was if you don't.
00:40:35
I mentioned him.
00:40:36
It was like a docket.
00:40:38
2019.
00:40:39
You had eight freshmen.
00:40:41
You had four sop****res won junior once a year to go in the top 14.
00:40:45
So one in Dunn's are getting picked as lottery picks.
00:40:49
Not a lot of art.
00:40:51
Well, I'm not gonna say a lot of them, some of whom have not been successful.
00:40:54
I think the most successful out of these numbers out of between 2006 through 2019 I think the most successful one and done player is Kevin Durant.
00:41:07
Kevin Durant is a to town final champion two times finals Angry p um, he's double digit and All Star appearances.
00:41:17
He's on MBA Player.
00:41:19
Um, he's a regular season M v p.
00:41:22
I think he's the most successful one and done on this list.
00:41:25
Um, in my opinion, I think he's the most successful one and done.
00:41:32
And I'm talking between 2006 in 2009 because, of course, you got snow before 2006.
00:41:37
You can enter the draft without going to college.
00:41:40
He's the most successful one and done, um, in my opinion, out of this list.
00:41:47
So that is the video guys long video.
00:41:51
I talked about the women first, and I talked about the men I'm playing overseas, and I talk a little bit about the D League is.
00:41:57
Well, um, I'm really eager to see how many one of Dunne's are gonna be drafted in the lot of this year.
00:42:05
That's gonna be really eager to see.
00:42:08
Like I said before, in 2019 I mean, 2019 you had eight.
00:42:13
You had a you know, Zion went one.
00:42:15
You had Duke get three of their freshmen drafted in the top bottom.
00:42:19
Believe that Zion R. J. Barrett.
00:42:22
If you had camera, you got no John Brant was a sop****re.
00:42:28
Who else wasn't a Miller driving? Trying to think guys are so many names and numbers.
00:42:33
But like I said before, Cam Cameron Johnson was the only senior taking in the Lotto u North Carolina was lonely.
00:42:42
So you're taking him a lateral in 2019? Um, all the rest were freshmen, and sop****res were underclassmen, so they had to declare so and a 13 of those guys had declared 13 *** were people that declared, Were guys that declared That is ridiculous as crazy seniors have automatic eligibility.
00:43:00

00:45:01
I'm gonna probably do the top 15 wire receives a lot top 10 or 15 guys.
00:45:07
I'm not sure how many? Because those words he were classes deep.
00:45:09
I expect 10 wide receivers to be taken in the 1st 2 rounds of this draft class.
00:45:14
I think maybe more.
00:45:16
Um, but I expect the 1st 2 rounds in this draft class alone, I expected.
00:45:20
Why receivers to be taken.
00:45:22

00:00:02
This video is which players do.
00:00:06
I'm gonna talk about men's and women's in his video, By the way, Ah, play overseas.
00:00:10
J.
00:00:11
Lee Go to college.
00:00:13
Of course, that doesn't apply for WNBA players that b b W b a plate w nbr excuses w N b A Players is overseas.
00:00:23
Should I take an assistant coaching job in N B? A team shall try on TV, so it's different rules for them.
00:00:30
I'll talk about them first.
00:00:32
Um, then I'll talk about the men next.
00:00:34
So what should a player do? We're gonna talk about this that on this video, Like I said of the men's and women's, I'm gonna talk with women first before I get incident.
00:00:43
Don't forget to follow me at simply me.
00:00:45
Underscore Avery on Twitter.
00:00:47
I am a part of the unwrapped Sports Network.
00:00:51
Now let's get into it.
00:00:52
Women now the W. B A season.
00:00:55
The draft happens in April.
00:00:59
Camp starts, I think the late April early May for a W B A.
00:01:05
They played through.
00:01:06
I want to say October or September.
00:01:10
I'm not quite sure.
00:01:11
Let me look at that and see when a WNBA Finals would be when it was last year.
00:01:17
Let's look at that W N B A Finals 2019 I'm pretty sure was.
00:01:27
Let me see what you did in September October, September 29th through October 10th so they don't get it in their seasons.
00:01:38
October 10th because they went to five games, Rosten Mystics defeated the Connecticut Sun in five games.
00:01:45
I do remember that because I watched it so they don't end their season.
00:01:49
If you make it, uh, through the playoffs to October until October 10 they have, like a week or two.
00:01:57
Maybe even they have to go play over.
00:01:59
See? So what if you don't want to play overseas? What if you want to do something meaningful? My amore is an example.
00:02:06
One of my favorite college players tow watch, drafted by the Minnesota Lynx.
00:02:10
I think she had a couple of championships.
00:02:13
She decided that she wants to help Mom, a guy she want to get into criminal justice reform.
00:02:19
Let me let me say that that's what she's doing criminal justice reform, and she's currently helping a guy get off death row, which is very admirable, she said.
00:02:30
that basketball can wait for now, but this is the second season she will miss.
00:02:34
She missed last season, and then she will miss this season.
00:02:37
She already announced that she's not gonna play this season.
00:02:41
She has a brand deal with Jordan, so I'm pretty sure Jordan Jordan brand deal is supporting her.
00:02:47
The W B A supports our and, of course, her fans.
00:02:51
Fans like me.
00:02:52
I'm a huge fan of my more.
00:02:53
I support her as well.
00:02:55
You have to do something that's meaningful outside of your passion.
00:02:59
So if your passion is basketball, you usually have a charity or something that's meaningful to you.
00:03:03
And this was meaningful to my amore.
00:03:06
So I'm really proud of my more for doing that, taking a different road of then just playing overseas WNBA overseas WNBA because that gets tiring and a lot of W B put a lot of W N B A players.
00:03:20
Excuse me, take a, um, winner.
00:03:24
A false last winter off red, white and blue socks.
00:03:28
Thank you for drawing the broadcast.
00:03:29
I appreciate it.
00:03:30
A lot of WNBA players saying, Hey, I don't want to play overseas.
00:03:33
****.
00:03:34
I want to take a break.
00:03:35
I want to enjoy this time with my family.
00:03:37
Um, and that's what they do.
00:03:39
You have money.
00:03:41
They say that I've had a party n b a players that they went, ah, heart of MBA play excuse and say that women are better with money than men.
00:03:51
That's probably true.
00:03:52
I'm not gonna get into that.
00:03:53
But I had an N b A player.
00:03:55
I heard him say that in an interview.
00:03:57
So when they come, they don't make much.
00:03:59
Money is n.
00:04:01
B A.
00:04:02
Players do, but they don't spend as much either.
00:04:04
I think the minimum, the rookie minimum salary, I think the rookie salary Russell brand of Stewart said correctly, it's $75,000.
00:04:11
She's still on her rookie deal, and she's only making 75 grand here before Texas.
00:04:18
They raise the W B A salary, but they make so much more money overseas and it's not text, so that's very important and allowed times in their contracts.
00:04:27
Their housing is already paid for, so your housing is pay for.
00:04:32
If you have a good agent, got a good contract, your housing is paid for.
00:04:36
You might get a car, something overseas.
00:04:38
I know something.
00:04:39
Maybe a WNBA players get car.
00:04:41
There were scenes, um, shopping, you know, shop overseas a lot cheaper as well.
00:04:47
The food is cheaper and things like that.
00:04:50
So it's cheaper flew over there.
00:04:52
From what I've heard, Been a live in America, of course, depending on where you are.
00:04:58
Uh, so that really takes a toll on your body.
00:05:02
When you're taking on 2 to 3 weeks off and then you're back at it, you're going into the W B a season.
00:05:07
So get down, get down W b A. You're going overseas.
00:05:11
You know what I was seeing? You're going back to W.
00:05:12
And that's a repeated cycle.
00:05:14
Repeated cycle.
00:05:15
But a lot of women that play basketball W d A.
00:05:18
Also have their degrees and some women to play WNBA only go back and get their master's degree and then come back to W B A.
00:05:28
When the season starts.
00:05:29
Because by the time the season starts, you're done with classes.
00:05:32
Well, yeah, um, you would be You could do the spring semester, but she couldn't do the fall semester.
00:05:45
You have to do the fall semester one lie and do the spring semester in class because from January to May, um, you don't have any.
00:05:55
You don't have any obligations towards the W B A.
00:06:00
In the battle time.
00:06:01
May hits beginning of May hit, then you're done with school.
00:06:04
You graduate from school and you can go to your W B 18 whereas in the fall you would have to excuse me.
00:06:10
If you make see James, he's from Ah Rev Sports Network.
00:06:15
You guys should give him a follow.
00:06:16
Thank you for drawing the broadcast.
00:06:18
I appreciate it.
00:06:19
If you're in the fall, you take those online classes because you're still playing in your W B a season.
00:06:24
So I don't know what I know.
00:06:25
A lot of WNBA players it go get their master's degree.
00:06:28
So therefore, when they're tired of playing basketball, they saved up enough money.
00:06:32
The naked retire on their own terms.
00:06:34
A lot of women retire on their own terms.
00:06:38
Men. Not so much.
00:06:40
I've heard I talked to a guy, he said his ego got the best of him, and he should quit playing basketball long time ago when your ego casino males have this ego.
00:06:50
For some reason, some women do, too, but mills are known to have the ego like I could do this forever.
00:06:56
But nothing lasts forever in Father Time is relentless when Father Time hits you.
00:07:03
You know, it was like, Okay, it's time to give it up.
00:07:06
I did find something else to do.
00:07:08
It's harder for men to do that than women.
00:07:11
Um, I don't know why, but when I talked to women are like, man, it was tough for me to give it up.
00:07:15
I got my master's degree.
00:07:16
I got experience doing this Doing that.
00:07:19
Um, I got some nonprofit.
00:07:22
I have a friend.
00:07:23
She had a nonprofit foundation.
00:07:24
She started working for things like that so that you have to find your passion outside of sports.
00:07:30
Yes, sports can still be in your life, But if you find a passionate sergeant sports, it won't be so hard to give it up.
00:07:36
Kobe found a passion outside of sports.
00:07:38
It kind of It was his daughter she got in the basketball, so he found a passion.
00:07:45
With that, he found a passionate right about basketball.
00:07:47
It could still be in sports, but, um, it could do, you could do something else with that is well, like he found that.
00:07:57
Okay, My daughter is really good.
00:07:58
Like you got a whole a u t.
00:08:01
And then he won that, um, Oscar for the book he wrote, which was beautiful.
00:08:12
Um, players can make way more money.
00:08:14
Um, overseas WNBA players, women players make way more money overseas.
00:08:20
Um, I just I just really, really think I got a shadow on Twitter.
00:08:34
Holy.
00:08:35
Write him back.
00:08:36
I really, really, really think, Honestly, you should do what's best for you when it comes to women playing overseas Now W N b A.
00:08:45
Players are now getting in assistant coach and jobs in the NBA.
00:08:50
Um, there's some of the NBA players now that worked with N BA teams.
00:08:54
I'm not gonna name of arms on the name some Carol Austin's with the Boston Celtics swing.
00:09:00
Cash does.
00:09:01
She's in the front office for the New Orleans Pelicans.
00:09:04
Kristi Toliver works with the Washington Wizards.
00:09:08
Of course, you guys know baking him and I talk about her a lot.
00:09:11
She works with San Antonio Spurs, so women are now thank you.
00:09:18
Women are now in a position to transition.
00:09:24
It's of the n b a.
00:09:25
More barriers of being broken for women in sports, as you guys know, So they're taking the planet w B A seasons in the summer, and they're doing their coaching jobs.
00:09:37
Um, in the off season, you me D m v.
00:09:41
Thank you for joining the broadcast.
00:09:42

00:09:44
It's becoming the game is becoming one of those things where we're transitioning.
00:09:47
I say we as women, we're transitioning in to the n B A.
00:09:51
And it's beautiful to watch because a lot of women know the game of basketball very well.
00:09:55
Some of these guys a higher have no playing experience and their lot you like.
00:10:00
Why did you hire him? Has he played? I know Kevin Durant made a sweet on Twitter, and he said they should hire more people in the n b A that have playing experience.
00:10:12
He didn't say that verbatim.
00:10:13
He says something else, but that's what he said.
00:10:16
And I really, really appreciate what the NBA has done to break those barriers to let women coach in the n b.
00:10:25
A.
00:10:26
I think that's beautiful, that the brother, the Big Brother and a little sisterly can come together and be one now TV.
00:10:35
A lot of women on TV.

00:10:46
Of course, you guys know that women also cover like the Double A and WNBA draft Cara Lawson also covered the WNBA draft as well, so she does a lot.
00:10:56
But I really enjoy watching Candace Parker on TV.
00:11:00
She has a podcast with it's called Let Low and Parker that I watch a lot, and I really appreciate that because she has great takes about N B A.
00:11:09
Players, men and women have different takes, sometimes about players in general.
00:11:16
But I enjoy watching both.
00:11:18
Of course I'm a woman.
00:11:19
So our support women and I'm also a woman to support me and as well.
00:11:23
So I really enjoyed watching tennis park on TV.
00:11:26
Um, Skylar Diggins interned for ESPN when she was in college, so that was, well, Skylar Diggins Smith.
00:11:34
Now, excuse me, guys, she, scholar Dig and Smith.
00:11:36
Now she got married.
00:11:37
She entered when she was in college, and that was, she said.
00:11:39
That was one of the best experiences of her life was interning for ESPN being allowed to intern for ESPN because you have to transition when you're playing careers over, you have to make a transition now in 2018.
00:11:52
1981 w n b A players played overseas.
00:11:57
Now that's a lot off.
00:11:58
That's a lot of players to play overseas.
00:12:01
There aren't very many teams in the w B A.
00:12:04
So any one of those players I would say about off the top of my head, I'm gonna guess probably about 60 to 70% of players play over seasoned W B A.
00:12:14
It might be higher than it.
00:12:16
I'll try to look up those percentages and get back to you guys, but that's women.
00:12:20
That's how I feel about women playing overseas.
00:12:22
Um, I want to start with them first just because I don't talk about women's sports on here a lot, but I am going to start talking about women's sports more.
00:12:31
But I said this is a good topic for men and women because women mainly play overseas longer than men will.
00:12:40
They're more prone to play overseas should I say more than me and men are more prone.
00:12:44
Ago, Geely or Envy ate the MBA route, which the D League an MBA, are now affiliated one another because you have those two way contract.
00:12:53
Now let's talk about the men.
00:12:56
Let's break down the mid.
00:12:58
Okay, so I have G league versus overseas.
00:13:01
I wrote that down in my notes, but I'm gonna talk about Overseas Maur than the D League because I really don't wash the D League much, even though I probably should.
00:13:11
I don't watch it as much as I should.
00:13:13
So I will talk about receipts because I know more guys that play overseas that playing Aggie Leak.
00:13:19
I'm just because guys I play with college ball wit and things like that.
00:13:22
So we have money, opportunity, family competition, exposure, the cost of living location as huge.
00:13:31
I heard about this huge.
00:13:32
I'm gonna talk about that, too.
00:13:33
Facilities Open investigation or Emmanuel Mudiay had an open investigation.
00:13:38
That's why he played overseas.
00:13:41
The experience there's a battle is your only of the euro leagues.
00:13:46
Better than the Geely is a battle with that.
00:13:50
Your league's up definitely better than college players.
00:13:52
You're gonna play against education.
00:13:55
Do I want to get my education? Can I play overseas and do online court? What can I do just to stay sharp mentally education wise coach and staff coaching staff is huge.
00:14:08
Is a huge part of your development.
00:14:10
The D League used to be the developmental league they used to call.
00:14:13
The dealer.
00:14:14
Used to be the developmental league.
00:14:15
It's still a developmental league.
00:14:17
They just call it the D League now, because Gatorade is their sponsor.
00:14:19
Get a rate league.
00:14:21
So So what do I want to tackle first money now in a GE Li, you don't make much.
00:14:28
I know they just got a bump in their salary.
00:14:31
I talked to a guy that was in the D League when it was the D League.
00:14:35
So this was when it was the leak.
00:14:36
He said he made about 25,000.
00:14:40
Robert, thank you for joining the broadcast.
00:14:42
I appreciate it.
00:14:43
He made about 25,000 for five months, I said, So what else do you do like in the old enough? Fail? You guys remember NFL players usedto playing in a field and still have full time jobs? Um, after the seasons were over until the NFL just start bringing in more money.
00:14:58
But I remember Coach Harm Edwards was talking about how guys I used to go work on the railroad in single play in the NFL.
00:15:06
Uh, but I asked myself, What else do you do? He said, Well, I have a baby on the way.
00:15:10
I have a wife, She works, I work And I'm working really hard to get on the NBA roster because once you get on an MBA roster, you can make more money.
00:15:20
And he said, The D League adjust.
00:15:22
It just isn't paying much right now, But that's before they start getting more popular.
00:15:29
This was probably in 2000.
00:15:31
I want to say Fort, this was 2014 hosted the D League then and he didn't make much money at all.
00:15:37
25,000 actually below the party line in Oklahoma.
00:15:40
I live in Oklahoma is actually below the party line, so there's not very much money, especially you have a family to take care of.
00:15:46
You have a child on the way.
00:15:47
That's not very much money.
00:15:49
But he loved the game of basketball, he said. I don't want to give it up.
00:15:52
And he said he couldn't go play over scenes where he could make six figures and then bring it back home to his family, but he would have to move his family overseas because he would be overseas, Um, a good period of time.
00:16:06
And so he came back to the league and what Dele grand he wants.
00:16:10
Hopefully, you get a call up to go to the MBA, but it's not guaranteed now.
00:16:15
Opportunity, opportunity to play overseas.
00:16:21
Opportunity to play in a G league now, like I No.
00:16:26
But with these, eh? NBA draft camps and things like that, you can get the opportunity.
00:16:32
The opportunity will come if you just be patient, But some guys can't be patient.
00:16:39
Like I said, money is a big issue in a lot of guys lives.
00:16:44
So if you've got a family, you're starting a family.
00:16:46
You got money.
00:16:47
You need to have to be able to support their family.
00:16:51
Then a lot of guys sacrifice that and go play overseas.
00:16:54
But that opportunity energy leak is there because a lot of NBA scouts are watching Julie games.
00:17:00
Of course, also, a lot of NBA scouts are watching overseas games as well, but their G league has a two way contract now, so you can go play some guys energy.
00:17:09
We get called up for the next home game like you could play every single day of the week.
00:17:13
I know for the Oklahoma City blue that's Oklahoma City.
00:17:16
Thought of Julie team Um, Dorit was playing in a G lead and he would get called up to play the next night.
00:17:23
So they playing well.
00:17:25
They used to play and tell us I feel that way right now, but Dorit would go player.
00:17:31
Jean Louis came and get called Hope and come play in the N B a game the next day.
00:17:36
If she was at home or they will fly him out, he would play the way game.
00:17:40
So opportunity is huge for both.
00:17:43
Now we'll say the G League I would give the Geely one up on opportunity just because it's a two way street now overseas, you have to get out of your contract like I did a video earlier.
00:17:53
Talk about the NBA draft.
00:17:55
I think overseas.
00:17:57
I'm thinking this.
00:17:58
I have to do some research.
00:17:59
You have to get out of your contract.
00:18:01
I think overseas to be able to sign the NBA contract.
00:18:06
I want to say that's how it's done, but I have to do some more research on it.
00:18:10
Um, so opportunity is there.
00:18:11
But I just think that Julie gives a little bit more opportunity because you're being exposed on national television.
00:18:17
Whereas overseas you're playing, you can watch probably those games on YouTube.
00:18:21
If one of your family members are your friends, send you the link to the game.
00:18:25
That's how usedto watch overseas games.
00:18:27
I had a link that I would watch the games with family.
00:18:30
I'll talk a little bit about this family.
00:18:33
You leave your family for so many months at a time.
00:18:36
Just think about this.
00:18:38
Your 18 year old kid and you just got out of college.
00:18:43
I mean, you just got out of high school.
00:18:44
Excuse me? Mmm.
00:18:46
You've been at home your whole life.
00:18:48
You've been home basically your whole life.
00:18:51
Would you rather go overseas and make the money? What? Would you rather go to college for a couple of years, maybe one or two years, and know that Hey, home is not far.
00:19:01
My family's not far cannot handle plan overseas and plant it receives is a lot to handle.
00:19:06
Guys is a whole lot to handle.
00:19:09
Culture is different.
00:19:12
You have to learn different languages.
00:19:14
The food is different.
00:19:16
The money is getting You're getting paid.
00:19:19
But your pain You're paying a price to get paid.
00:19:23
Um, you are paying a huge price to get paid the money that you're getting paid.
00:19:28
So it is very, very, very important that you make sure that you're ready for that.
00:19:34
Emmanuel Moody A.
00:19:35
I'll bring him up a lot.
00:19:37
He didn't have a choice.
00:19:38
Um, he said, I'm gonna go play overseas.
00:19:41
I think he was committed to I want to say Larry Brown was coaching the team.
00:19:46
Was it s And you it had to be nesting you.
00:19:49
I think it was Sonu he was committed to.
00:19:51
Like I said, I have to look at me like I'm pulling it up right now because he was committed to ah college and he decided, You know what? I'm a go overseas.
00:20:01
He had an open investigation along as well.
00:20:04
A seaman. You moody a.
00:20:13
But it for sm.
00:20:14
Ugh.
00:20:15
I was right.
00:20:16
Like being like he was committed to play for s and new, But he had an opening vase investigation.
00:20:21
His family was going through a lot.
00:20:22
So you decide to play over seats.
00:20:24
So family cannot cannot get snatched away from my family Going overseas now going from state to state.
00:20:31
That's a little different because you know, you can hop on a plane boom or you might play for your hometown team.
00:20:35
Oh, I could go down the road and get Mom's home cooking there.
00:20:38
She couldn't do my laundry and things like the overseas you you hit adulthood.
00:20:42
So did you stuff up that playing? You gotta don't put both.
00:20:45
My adulthood has hit you.
00:20:46
You no longer have family issues, you and your teammates.
00:20:50
And hopefully you have teammates to speak English because I heard that was one thing that is very difficult to deal with as well.
00:20:57
That transition is very difficult.
00:21:00
It's awful about family.
00:21:01
Let's go competition now.
00:21:03
The competition in the D League versus Overseas versus College.
00:21:07
I read an article on this about the competition.
00:21:11
I have a stack up.
00:21:12
I'm gonna give you my opinion.
00:21:15
The euro leaks for men are the talent is very spread out like it's very spread out in Europe.
00:21:23
The tower is spread out in the D League.
00:21:25
These air guys that are really playing for an opportunity a check and exposure.
00:21:33
That's what the D League is.
00:21:34
So the D League's Julie's and my pain is a bunch of dogs, like they're like, Look, I need to get this to I am on this two way deal.
00:21:42
Um, I'm trying to get moved up.
00:21:44
I'm trying to play in the league.
00:21:47
Um, overseas is more like Okay, I'm trying to to my game, because over Europe, basketball in the NBA basketball are not staying.
00:21:56
They play a different type of basketball.
00:21:59
They should the ball a lot more.
00:22:01
They pass and cut a lot more.
00:22:03
They're better shooters.
00:22:05
Um, they're just not as athletic.
00:22:09
Like NBA players were just freakishly athletic.
00:22:11
If you watch Luca dockage play, that gives you a pretty good idea of how overseas players play.
00:22:17
Manu Ginobili was a perfect example of that.
00:22:21
Tony Parker was a good example of that.
00:22:23
Bores de ao um was a good example of that is, well, I know I named some Spurs.
00:22:30
I love the Spurs.
00:22:31
I love watching him growing up, but yeah, the competition in Europe is spread out in the D League.
00:22:38
These guys are fighting every single night every single night for a roster spot.
00:22:42
Hey, get called a pay.
00:22:44
You're going to be on the road with the Lakers.
00:22:46
Pack your banks, you got a 10 day contract and it's it's fierce, fierce now on overseas basketball.
00:22:54
Like I said, their game is more for this.
00:22:56
They're more finesse.
00:22:58
Um, you can just tell by the way they play.
00:23:00
If you guys watch a feeble basketball, uh, you can just tell by the way they play.
00:23:06
They're so detail oriented the way they passed the way they could, because they can't rely on their athletic ability.
00:23:13
A lot of them don't rely on their athletic ability in the n b A.
00:23:17
A lot of players allowed an athletic ability.
00:23:20
I'm just gonna be honest with that.
00:23:21
A lot of players are very athletic, but not quite, you know, polished or finished products.
00:23:28
There are a lot of those type of guys in the n b A.
00:23:31
That they know the game of basketball.
00:23:33
Yeah, they know they can do it, but they let their athletic that athleticism overshadow their skills.
00:23:41
Sometimes, because I'm so athletic, I can do this.
00:23:44
But the older you get, the more skilled you become because like I say, Father, Time is undefeated.
00:23:50
The athleticism goes away.
00:23:51
So I need a jump shot.
00:23:53
Um oh, I need to learn footwork.
00:23:56
Oh, I need Thio.
00:23:58
Becoming a better passer can happen, but that's best bike.
00:24:02
You even either you have it either.
00:24:04
You're just a natural Born Chris Paul Magic Johnson and John stocked in, um, Mark Jackson, Rajon Rondo, LeBron James Lucas Born with that passing ability.
00:24:21
Um, I'm not gonna name everybody, but you guys get catch my drift.
00:24:27
That floor vision.
00:24:28
Steve Nash, that court and floor vision it can come.
00:24:35
But you have that.
00:24:36
Like when LeBron stepped into the league, we're like, Okay, he's gonna have a great passing ability. Chris, Paul.
00:24:42
We already knew that people called him Point God for a reason.
00:24:45
John Stockton.
00:24:47
He leads He's all time leader in India. Assists.
00:24:50
I don't know if anybody's want to catch him.
00:24:53
We'll see of LeBron and Chris. Paul do.
00:24:56
But yes, the competition overseas is not as fierce as it is in the D League.
00:25:03
In my opinion, would you rather play in the D League overseas if you're going money your plan over seats.
00:25:08
If you're going opportunity, I would play in a D League. That's my opinion.
00:25:14
Cost of living now, Like I told you guys before I told you that story before he was only making $25,000.
00:25:20
Now the cost living overseas.
00:25:22
If you have a good agent, you're making six figures.
00:25:25
You're not playing paying for a place to stay and you have a car.
00:25:29
So your coffee living is pretty much taken care off in his tax free money.
00:25:33
So you're going over there, Your rent handled you probably planet paying a car notes on car insurance you might play Pay your facilities in your apartment wherever you live in.
00:25:42
You have a roommate, so you might be able to split that if you want to be by yourself or live without one of your buddies.
00:25:50
Maybe somebody you played in college.
00:25:51
Wait.
00:25:52
You guys both got the opportunity to play for the same team, which happens.
00:25:55
That cost of living is very low so you can send money home to Mom and Dad or Grandma.
00:26:00
Grandpa are on uncle who helped take care of you and still save money because the cops live in.
00:26:04
It's so low now here in America the paint on what city you're in.
00:26:10
You're in the cost living.
00:26:12
It's high, high and low on Oklahoma.
00:26:15
It doesn't cost much to live here, But if you go to Santa Cruz and play for the words you lied, uh, the cross living in California is a drastic difference.
00:26:25
They're living in Oklahoma, so it's very eyes.
00:26:32
What? You is all up to you.
00:26:34
In my opinion, what can you handle? What can't you handle? You know what bills you have.
00:26:39
Um, some guys like I'm tired of being broke.
00:26:41
I'm gonna make this sacrifice for overseas and stacks of money.
00:26:44
And then hopefully I get a G league whole ***got of summer league invite Indian.
00:26:48
Okay, I didn't make the team.
00:26:53
Yeah, I looked up and got their two way contract or they go undrafted in golden sees and then come back and try again this year.
00:27:02
You're a those MBA workouts.
00:27:06
That's very important location.
00:27:09
Who this matters.
00:27:11
Location, location, location.
00:27:13
Being in Europe, you're in the whole of different.
00:27:17
Well, I mean, it's not a miracle, so your location is very important.
00:27:23
I know a lot of players like to play in China, France, Greece in Italy.
00:27:31
That's actually where all the competition is.
00:27:34
That's where the most competition is.
00:27:37
Um, if you watched the Olympics, you see how good those teams are.
00:27:41
So, uh, yes, A lot of players like to play in those four parts of Europe, not China.
00:27:48
Chinese are part of your, but China has good basketball competition, especially for the women who you playing in China As a woman, you make a lot of money sidebar.
00:27:59
You play in China as a woman, you make a lot of money.
00:28:02
I think, for man is Greece.
00:28:06
I want to say, is Greece? I want to say Italy.
00:28:13
I think that's what it is for the man if I'm thinking correctly.
00:28:15
But I know for the women for sure.
00:28:17
China makes a lot of guys trying to make a lot of money.
00:28:19
So location matters.
00:28:20
You want that competition.
00:28:22
If you have, the better the competition, the more money you make.
00:28:24
I heard that as well.
00:28:26
I was told that the better competition, the more money you make.
00:28:30
So if your competition is guys trying to get into the N B A, then you make more money.
00:28:35
Of course, because the league is better the league's air better they get more exposure.
00:28:40
I mean, things like that.
00:28:41
So location matters, facilities, I heard some guys say we have to practice outside or we have to do this.
00:28:48
We have do that.
00:28:49
We don't have a weight room.
00:28:50
Facilities matter.
00:28:52
You know how when when players go on recruit visits and they're building these $1,000,000 facilities now issue big look facilities in the United States for men's basketball and football are getting ridiculous.
00:29:06
I think.
00:29:07
Oh, you is building a new facility for the softball team.
00:29:09
They went a lot, so it makes sense.
00:29:12
But the facilities are getting ridiculous here for college facilities, all received when you overseas, you might be lucky if you get a locker room.
00:29:21
From what I've heard, you might be lucky if you practice indoors.
00:29:26
You might get be lucky if you have balls to practice with.
00:29:30
If the surface is clean, so facilities do matter sometimes for the facilities don't have running water and things like that.
00:29:38
So you go to this college, you go because it just just imagine you go visit a college campus and you look around and you're in these $1,000,000 for split peas.
00:29:48
And you got a sleeping pod.
00:29:51
You got room for X box? Ah, when your name as you go, and then you look out your, um your locker, it's your pictures.
00:30:03
And you're a digital picture of you and you stroll to the right.
00:30:07
It might be your family, you scrolls or the to the right. It might be your dog.
00:30:11
I mean, they bring it all out for you for a recruit visit.
00:30:15
So imagine going from one of those facilities to say no can't play overseas.
00:30:19
Mind you, you cannot preview this facility before you decide to go do this.
00:30:23
You look in your life.
00:30:26
Okay.
00:30:27
So what do we practice? Uh, equipment.
00:30:30
Um, e got by my own shoes.
00:30:32
I gotta do this.
00:30:33
Even though you're making the money.
00:30:34
You're like, OK, what is this? See, in college, you have a nutrition program.
00:30:40
The coaching staff is a leak.
00:30:42
Now, if you look upon the seas, you might get Millie coaching staff.
00:30:45
I will say that I'm I can't say that.
00:30:48
But you just look around you in your life.
00:30:52
What is this? And you're coming from America.
00:30:54
So you coming from America to a whole new country.
00:30:58
You're like OK, but when I went to Duke, I had This is his ****.
00:31:03
But when I come here, I don't even nobody on the team.
00:31:07
You can speak English or what is this? So you're a huge culture shop That's part of facilities, I guess is, Well, it's a huge culture shock for you and you go now.
00:31:21
The only story I'd know about about open investigations is a major movie A.
00:31:24
But I'm pretty sure there are more.
00:31:27
If you have an opening the investigation on you, James Wise.
00:31:30
And indeed, he had an investigation on him. The left.
00:31:33
Malone. So he was able to play a couple of games.
00:31:35
You guys know the center from Memphis? Anfernee Hardaway is their coach.
00:31:39
Memphis was with one of those teams.
00:31:41
Everybody like Okay, they have one of the top recruiting classes in the country last year, but they had some injuries and Wiseman the incident was fixed plan with wives and they were like, Well, no, we want to let you play and we don't want to let you play.
00:31:55
We want to let you play and we don't want to let you play so open investigations is another reason why players might go play overseas.
00:32:02
Wiseman knew he would be a top five draft pick.
00:32:05
A lot of people had him.
00:32:06
Number one, But I think people have Anthony.
00:32:08
It was number one now, um, depend on the draft order. We won't know that.
00:32:12
Um, of course, but not yet.
00:32:15
Alise Alise.
00:32:16
But they played with James, wasn't so much.
00:32:19
And in James Hobson say, you know what? I think he probably talked to Penny Hardaway was like, You know what? I'm just going to sit out.
00:32:25
I'm just lonely right for NBA draft.
00:32:27
Now, could he could have went to the AMG Academy? Yes.
00:32:32
Could he probably have still been picked in the top five? Could he could have went and did that enter, if safe.
00:32:38
If you got a solid rich Paul, you guys know Darius basically took a $1,000,000 internship with new balance.
00:32:44
It's still got picked in the first round.
00:32:46
I got to work out, got the learning business of basketball a hat which policies? Agent shut out to Rich Paul.
00:32:53
I like which Paul and what he's doing for these n b A players he's really protecting them, um, as well surfaces if he had a various Baisley situation, we said, you know, I'm so it's like an entire ship.
00:33:07
Make some money workout, give better.
00:33:10
Give me a trainer, blah, blah, blah, and not go to Memphis and just do this.
00:33:14
But I think the thing about it was Anthony Hardaway had already Anfernee.
00:33:18
Excuse me, I have any Anfernee Hardaway already moved his family to Memphis, so he will the family to Memphis so he could be close to his family.
00:33:29
And he wants to attend the university of, uh, you need a team you want to attend.
00:33:34
Memphis is Well, so I think that played a part in it. Now.
00:33:38
The excitable ages played yo yo with him all season.
00:33:41
He was like, You know what? I'm just not gonna play.
00:33:43
I'm just gonna enter the draft.
00:33:44
Open investigations might have an impact on what you do to go play overseas.
00:33:49
Like I said, the only parts that I know of that I've you know, sauce so far was a milieu of moody eight exacted play overseas because of his open investigation and his financial situation with his family.
00:34:00
The experience.
00:34:03
What do you want your experience to be now overseas will give you a different type of experience.
00:34:10
The league is your different type of experience.
00:34:12
It all depends on your preference.
00:34:14
Like I said before, if you want the money, if you want low cost of living um, if you have a situation where you have open investigation, I think overseas is for you.
00:34:31
If you want opportunity.
00:34:33
If you want to stay close to your family if you want the competition.
00:34:36
If you want the exposure, the local Some J League locations are iffy, but more European locations are If you Benji lead, um, better facilities. Of course.
00:34:47
Then the experience of the D League is for you.
00:34:50
It all depends on what your situation is, whether or not what kind of experience you want.
00:34:55
The overseas is more of a finesse game.
00:34:58
G league is more doggy dog because everybody is working to get a contract overseas.
00:35:03
People like Okay, you might have signed a two a three year deal with a club, and you're like, Okay, maybe with this club for two or three years.
00:35:09
I know that I am.
00:35:11
This is I have a contract.
00:35:12
I have an Agent Bone.
00:35:14
Oh, Innogy Legal like man, I could get traded.
00:35:17
Tomorrow's one of the D League affiliate.
00:35:19
I think the D League All Star Game was now on t me if I'm not mistaken.
00:35:23
So now it's like, OK, I can get on TV, play on TV, play in front of the NBA's capture at all of these gangs even though you have overseas NBS scouts as well.
00:35:33
But the D League, you're just so close, they can just come plucked you off the team and say, Here you do 10 gate, 10 day contract.
00:35:38
I don't have to fly you from overseas and none of that They could just say, Okay, you're gonna be with the Warriors tonight.
00:35:45
You're gonna play for the worries.
00:35:46
Steve Kerr might give you a minute so you might look up.
00:35:49
So they experience All depends on you.
00:35:51
Appears on what you're looking for.
00:35:53
Education is it won't take long.
00:35:56
You give the play overseas.
00:35:58
I have some friends they've played overseas and did all our classes to get their education.
00:36:02
We're gonna go g lead and ah do online classes as well.
00:36:07
So it really depends.
00:36:09
A lot of players go back and get their degrees.
00:36:12
A lot of players go back and finish, so your education also depends on you coaching staff.
00:36:19
This is important.
00:36:22
Coaches says Coaching staffs in college, our moting you to become a man.
00:36:28
They're basically sitting in your living room.
00:36:31
Are or woman Excuse me or woman.
00:36:33
Uh, if your plan for you trying to go and see double and play for women's team, there's a lesson here, the room and I say, Hey, I enjoy your son or daughter.
00:36:43
I will have your son and arms back.
00:36:45
This is what we're gonna prepare them for And that's how it goes.
00:36:49
Um, so the coaching staff is huge.
00:36:54
A lot of these coaches Coach, Team USA.
00:36:56
I know Michalczewski does.
00:36:58
I think Coach Cow does Gino Auriemma.
00:37:01
From the women's side, he coaches Team USA.
00:37:03
So you get that coaching staff.
00:37:06
This coached NBA players.
00:37:08
These coaching staffs are getting you prepared to play at the professional level.
00:37:11
You go overseas, you are a grown man or a grown woman.
00:37:15
You are now an adult.
00:37:17
These coaching staffs are that a George out.
00:37:19
That's just a coach you and that's it.
00:37:21
So coaching staffs matter now Let me give you a little story about a player that I love watching in market.
00:37:29
He was a G League MVP.
00:37:31
Vander Blue.
00:37:32
If you guys watched Big East basketball, you know who Vander Blue is? Vander Blue.
00:37:36
He won the G League MVP in 2016 or 17.
00:37:41
He played in market from 2010 to 2 through 2013 and he went undrafted.
00:37:46
He has been on nine, eh? NBA teams.
00:37:50
He had two stints with the Lakers.
00:37:51
This is including summer league, so that's just a little small story for you guys is River small, not N B.
00:37:57
A.
00:37:59
Teen's Twice.
00:38:00
Two stints with the Lakers, including the summer leagues.
00:38:02
I'm include the summer league and neck that's you could be an M V P.
00:38:06
Of the D League and still not making an MBA.
00:38:08
It it's so hard to make it an MBA.
00:38:10
People don't understand.
00:38:12
Players ago. Undrafted.
00:38:14
My favorite on draft.
00:38:15
One of my favorite undrafted stories that I like because I enjoy watched him in college was West Matthews.
00:38:21
Wes Matthews went undrafted.
00:38:24
Yes, I said it West Nephews went undrafted and guess where he went.
00:38:28
He went to market.
00:38:29
West Matthews.
00:38:30
When I'm drafted, I washed him playing a simile.
00:38:33
He showed his butt off in the summer league.
00:38:37
He got on with the Blazers.
00:38:39
He's on with the books.
00:38:40
I mean, he's been in the n b A.
00:38:42
He's a role player, but he's been in the N b A.
00:38:45
Another player, Kendrick Nunn, went undrafted last year.
00:38:48
Guys kindred 19. I get drafted.
00:38:50
He showed out in summer league.
00:38:52
I know a lot of people were talking about how good he wasn't summer league.
00:38:55
He averages 17 a little over 17 points a game for 18 in the Miami Heat that it's fork in the East.
00:39:03
A team with Jimmy Butler.
00:39:05
Bam in a bio.
00:39:06
Duncan Robinson, Tali hero.
00:39:08
He is the starting point heart on a team in the East.
00:39:12
That's fourth in the East, averaging over 17 points again, and he went undrafted.
00:39:17
I like him left a guy like 100 month.
00:39:20
Now let me talk about one indulgence for a little bit, and I'll be done with videos already along video one and done time.
00:39:25
Go by the numbers, guys, I'm going to start in 2000 and six.
00:39:31
There was 11 and done in 2006 there were six.
00:39:34
In 2007 there was eight.
00:39:36
Okay, now, when I say one in Don's guys, I'm sorry.
00:39:38
Need backtrack one and dines in the lotto They went in The Lotto Lotto is one through 14.
00:39:48
So these are one and done that went in the lotto.
00:39:51
Um, one through 14 you got picked 1 to 14.
00:39:55
Guys, let me start over again.
00:39:56
2006 There was 1 2007 There were 6 2008 There were 7 2009 There was 2 2000 10 4 2000 11 4 2000 12 5 2000 13 5 2000 14 7 2000 15 8 2000 16 5 2017 11 11 freshmen went into Fort 14 picks.
00:40:21
You only had two sop****res and one guy on the seats.
00:40:24
2010 in 2000.
00:40:26
Excuse me.
00:40:27
I'm in 2018.
00:40:28
I'm sorry, guys.
00:40:29
Was 10. You had one junior won sop****re.
00:40:31
One guy from over seats.
00:40:32
Guys, hold a guy.
00:40:33
Was if you don't.
00:40:35
I mentioned him.
00:40:36
It was like a docket.
00:40:38
2019.
00:40:39
You had eight freshmen.
00:40:41
You had four sop****res won junior once a year to go in the top 14.
00:40:45
So one in Dunn's are getting picked as lottery picks.
00:40:49
Not a lot of art.
00:40:51
Well, I'm not gonna say a lot of them, some of whom have not been successful.
00:40:54
I think the most successful out of these numbers out of between 2006 through 2019 I think the most successful one and done player is Kevin Durant.
00:41:07
Kevin Durant is a to town final champion two times finals Angry p um, he's double digit and All Star appearances.
00:41:17
He's on MBA Player.
00:41:19
Um, he's a regular season M v p.
00:41:22
I think he's the most successful one and done on this list.
00:41:25
Um, in my opinion, I think he's the most successful one and done.
00:41:32
And I'm talking between 2006 in 2009 because, of course, you got snow before 2006.
00:41:37
You can enter the draft without going to college.
00:41:40
He's the most successful one and done, um, in my opinion, out of this list.
00:41:47
So that is the video guys long video.
00:41:51
I talked about the women first, and I talked about the men I'm playing overseas, and I talk a little bit about the D League is.
00:41:57
Well, um, I'm really eager to see how many one of Dunne's are gonna be drafted in the lot of this year.
00:42:05
That's gonna be really eager to see.
00:42:08
Like I said before, in 2019 I mean, 2019 you had eight.
00:42:13
You had a you know, Zion went one.
00:42:15
You had Duke get three of their freshmen drafted in the top bottom.
00:42:19
Believe that Zion R. J. Barrett.
00:42:22
If you had camera, you got no John Brant was a sop****re.
00:42:28
Who else wasn't a Miller driving? Trying to think guys are so many names and numbers.
00:42:33
But like I said before, Cam Cameron Johnson was the only senior taking in the Lotto u North Carolina was lonely.
00:42:42
So you're taking him a lateral in 2019? Um, all the rest were freshmen, and sop****res were underclassmen, so they had to declare so and a 13 of those guys had declared 13 *** were people that declared, Were guys that declared That is ridiculous as crazy seniors have automatic eligibility.
00:43:00
I talked about that earlier guys.
00:43:02
That video was earlier today she go check that out.
00:43:05
But that's it.
00:43:06
That's the end of this video.
00:43:07
Guys, Um, I hope you got I gave you guys an information.
00:43:11

00:43:16
It's just my opinion.
00:43:18

00:43:20
I know players in every league.
00:43:22
I know players in overseas.
00:43:23
I know players in the league.
00:43:25
I know players, of course, in college, of course.
00:43:27
And I know just a couple of NBA players, not meaning.
00:43:31
But my opinion, Of course, everybody will have their own opinion.
00:43:35
Thank you guys so much during the broadcast.

00:43:58
So Friday's content is who has declared part, too.
00:44:03
I'm very excited to do that.
00:44:04

00:44:32
That was one in two parts.
00:44:33
I did 17 players that I did.
00:44:35
Another 17 players parts I went into, and then the year of the wire receiver.
00:44:40
This wide receiver class is deep, so we're gonna dive into the year of the wire receiver.
00:44:46
That'll be the second video.
00:44:47
The front to Rios, who has declared part two.
00:44:49
Hopefully, nobody declares on Saturday, but I would probably have to update their video every week.
00:44:54
It looks like and the year of the wide receiver, we're going to talk about this year's.
00:45:01
I'm gonna probably do the top 15 wire receives a lot top 10 or 15 guys.
00:45:07
I'm not sure how many? Because those words he were classes deep.
00:45:09
I expect 10 wide receivers to be taken in the 1st 2 rounds of this draft class.
00:45:14
I think maybe more.
00:45:16
Um, but I expect the 1st 2 rounds in this draft class alone, I expected.
00:45:20
Why receivers to be taken.
00:45:22
It is here very deep.
00:45:24
So would be to those videos tomorrow.
00:45:26

00:46:00
You got so many MBA Uh, excuse me, Team USA Team and I will also answer this question.

00:46:11
Um, not plowed.
00:46:13
Excuse.
00:46:15

So I will give you my opinion of what I think of players.
00:46:31
Coach is.
00:46:32
