This is a pretty interesting book on what goes on with playing overseas, trying to make an nba roster and 10 day contracts etc

If I remember correctly a little while back Shirley was one of the writers on "Yahoo NBA" he did lots of interesting blogs I know it was on one of the main NBA websites.

Correct I believe, he's a funny dude, sometimes borders on the annoyingly pessimistic but a good read none the less.

But holy ****, I didn't know the most an NBADL player can make in a season is $25,500. That is chump change, you can probably make that working full-time at McDonalds.

Yeah its little, but a season is only 50 games and only like 5 months. Not like a full year they are making 26k.

if they are only making $20-25k during the prime of their careers as players, they ain't really got much to look forward to. how many lower level guys get called up to the league? like less than 1%. they have much better chance of making better money overseas and just admitting they're not good enough to ever make the nba. but some guys are pretty damn good, like former high school all americans and D1 studs. they'd still run anyone at the Y, but after college, they're just earning enough to drive 1992 civics. sh!t, they were probably getting paid more $ by boosters during their years in college.

NBA benchwarmer is probably the best job there is out there.

No pressure.

Staying in nice hotels.

Flying 1st class.

Best seats in the house (end of bench).

Fans tend to applaud every single positive actions you do. And fans will even form cult followings to coax the coach to play you more.

Working out with and staying in shape in world class facilities.

You get paid to do this (minus money owed to IRS).

I'd buy that for a dollar.

Not NBA but a good interesting read is Mark Titus' "Don't put me in coach."

I haven't read that Shirley book (but plan to) but Mark Titus is actually a decent writer.

But the thing is you have to qualify as a NBA player first to be able to sit on the bench.

That's another thread (which actually somewhere on this forum)...

But I agree even surviving cuts playing against ruthless competition is an accomplishment in itself.
