I was on a few mock draft boards to go early 2nd Round in the 2010 NBA Draft. So I left college early to train with Tim Grover. I got invited to Portsmouth Invitational. A place invite for the top 64 seniors in the country. Played really well there.
Got invited to the Reese’s All Star Game at the final four in Indianapolis. Played really well.
I ended up having 30 pre draft NBA workouts. Ended up going undrafted.
Signed my first contract to play in Belgium. Lost in the championship.
Returned home to NBA D-League. Selected Pick 14th in the first round to Rio Grand Valley Vipers. Houston Rockets affiliate team. I was selected to the D-League All-Star game.
Next season I signed in France with Chalon-Reims. Lost in the championship again.
Frustrated with not being in the NBA I decided to take some time off. I ended up signing late in Toulon, France. The team was in 13th place when I met them. We finished 6th.
I returned to Aalst, Belgium for a second year. Had a great season we lost in the first round.
Next season I signed my biggest contract in Usak, Turkey. We both decided to go our separate ways after one week. I took some more time off devastated. I thought that team would get me back to the highest level of basketball. I ended up signing in Japan that season. I signed with Kyoto. We lost in the final four.
Next season I signed in Lavrio, Greece. We decided to go our separate ways after two months. Broke and defeated I ended up signing a deal in Mexico out of desperation. Turned out to be my best experience as a pro. I signed with Ojinaga in the Chihuahua League. We lost in the championship.
Still broke and desperate I signed with my current team ADA Blois in France. Not knowing where the team was or which division it was in. I just took the job and said I was gone MAKEMPAY. We won the championship my first season and I was the MVP of the league. I’m still finishing this story…
