9781508910992: The Overseas Basketball Blueprint: A Guidebook On Starting And Furthering Your Professional Basketball Career Abroad For American-Born Players

Most countries ’round the globe have at least one professional basketball league, and the smaller franchises may or may not be organized enough to get the paychecks actually into the players’ hands every two weeks. Owner shenanigans notwithstanding, it is a real living wage, honestly earned, playing basketball and seeing the world. The fact that Dre Baldwin vaulted from a scrub amongst his high school peers to a recipient of some of these real-live basketball paychecks approaches the miraculous." - Miles Wray, McSweeny's Since I started my website DreAllDay.com, along with all the YouTube videos, I have received many requests from players on playing pro basketball. And since the NBA has only so many positions, most of you know that overseas ball is a stronger possibility for you to continue your playing career, and it is: The NBA has 450 job positions while there are 10,000 players employed internationally (which includes Canada, Central and South America, which technically do not require going “over a sea” to get to, in case you cared). Over the years I have compiled several guides and tips for players on how to get their careers started, what to expect on the way and once they are in the door, and how to handle themselves with the on and off-court situations that come with it. Every guide comes from questions that players frequently ask me. This guidebook is a compilation of all those help & tips in one place for your quick and easy reference, which I will be updating over time as new questions come up and new information arises. If you take only one thing from this guidebook, know that professional basketball is a buyer’s market: There are more candidates than there are jobs, so the people who do the hiring — the teams themselves — have the power. What this means for you is, you need to make yourself stand out. Make these coaches, agents, and managers remember you and want to know more. The Overseas Basketball Blueprint is exactly what you need to do that.

About the Author:

Dre Baldwin is a professional speaker, TED Talker, marketing & branding entrepreneur and internet pioneer who built his name on the same discipline and persistence that made him a professional athlete.

After graduating with a Business Marketing & Management degree from Penn State Altoona in 2004, Dre played pro basketball internationally for 9 years, spanning 8 countries. He started blogging in 2005, and began filming and publishing his basketball workouts and motivational messages to YouTube in 2006.

In 2009, Dre started posting a new video daily to his YouTube channel, a discipline that continues to this day: He has published over 4,800 videos which have been viewed over 35,000,000 times. 

Dre gave a TEDxTalk in 2015 called "The Third Day" on self-discipline. His 2016 TEDxTalk will be about Self-Confidence. 

Dre has never been one to do just one thing. Dre works with brand owners, businesses, entrepreneurs and up-and-coming athletes to enhance their online presence and reach consumers through leveraging emerging tools of branding & marketing. Dre speaks and writes on the topics of Sales, Leadership, Discipline, Marketing and Branding.
