Based on this list I could be playing in my rec league and be considered a pro. No offense to some of those guys but those are barely pro. Besides that I will say the amount of players in the NBA is something to be proud of. Got to see Georges playing against Monte and my wolves the other night.

It can be quite lucrative to play overseas. Nothing wrong making a good living while playing a game

No offense, but you aren’t getting paid to play rec league.

2 observations:
1. Kane is not playing anymore?

2. Someone is PAYING Prentiss Nixon to dent rims and turn the ball over??
Kane is playing for Grindavik in Iceland. Last played in a win on 4/4/24.

As evidence that I was impacted by the Title IX podcast, let's include Ashley Joens.

I tend to agree and have heard of players making good money. Clyburn and Ejim come to mind. While I can't confirm I'm having a tough time seeing players like Calvin Godfrey who were below average players in college making good money playing pro. It's a long list and I stated SOME. I'd say the list of people that have played in the NBA is impressive.

Testifying
Remember when Matt Thomas was one of the best shooters in the NBA for a hot minute? I thought he might actually stick for a bit.
He had a leg injury IIRC.

Having known some people who have played overseas basketball and hockey I think you'd be surprised how good of a deal it is. They typically have all living expenses covered, get paid over $100k and aren't paying taxes on what they make. They also have down time where they can play in other leagues, coach, etc to make more money.

I'm surprised that Diante Garrett is still playing. But I guess not that surprised. He was so dang good. I wish he got to play one more year with Hoiberg.
