    Professional options for Will, Korie, Chris and Tyrus

    Selfishly, I want Tyrus, Babb, Korie and Will to go to Italy to play professionally next year. All of them have the ability to play there. It doesn't pay as much as the NBA, but the perks are immense: travel, "bella vita" and they would be treated like absolute royalty in northern Italy. The risk of injury is lower and, with their outstanding characters, they would be great ambassadors of the U.S. there.

    The squads:

    SAIE3 Bologna
    EA7 Armani (in Milan)
    Montepaschi Siena (based in Florence)

    Plus, I'd be able to take my son to go see them play (again, selfish)!

    Will has an outside shot at the NBA in the 2nd round or D-League.

    The others will all have options to make a good living overseas.

    Also Spain. I don't know much about their league, but I think playing for Barcelona would be awesome for these young men.

    Don't sleep on Babb. Crazier things have happened. He's 6'5", built like a mack truck, plays great D and can hit 3's.

    I could see him finding a spot on an NBA roster. He's a long shot, but it he's got some skills.

    Don't get me wrong, I believe all four of those guys are potential NBA talent. But they would enjoy-the-hell out of life in southern Europe. That's the point of living, isn't it, enjoying life and being happy?
