About this pro

Basketball has always been a passion of mine since I was 6 years old. Through hard work and dedication I was able to earn a scholarship to Duke University. After having 2 successful seasons at Duke I was drafted 14th overall in the NBA by the Minnesota Timberwolves. I played professionally for 12 years between the NBA and Europe. Since retirement from basketball I’ve spent countless hours teaching and developing young basketball players. 

What I enjoy the most is watching the growth in the players. Once a player gains confidence and starts to believe, the sky is the limit! It then comes down to how hard and often you work.
