Anthony Morrow: I’m about to enter my ninth year in the NBA, which I don’t think I would have guessed would be the case when I was drooling on that couch all those years ago. Right now, you might be searching for some guidance about how you can make it. Here’s what I got for you. First things first, be thankful. You’re in good company. You and pretty much everyone you know – your best friend, your girl, your momma — are undrafted free agents. There’s no shame in your situation. You can get into the dramatics of writing down the name of every guy drafted ahead of you, but what the hell are you going to do with that? It ain’t their fault you weren’t picked.
Morrow: Your goal shouldn’t be to make it to the NBA. Instead, your focus right now should be to find a place that will pay you to play basketball for at least the next year. Don’t put all that pressure on yourself by thinking too far ahead. Hell, I was almost playing in Ukraine right out of college — and I was hyped! I knew it was freezing out there but I didn’t give a shit. I’d bring a jacket. They were offering me $80,000 a year. Out of college. To play basketball. They even gave me a $10,000 signing bonus. I had a daughter on the way and I was ready for her to grow up Ukrainian. I wasn’t even sure what the language looked or sounded like, but I was ready to pledge my allegiance, man. If you have an overseas opportunity available to you, be excited about it. A lot of great players make in a league before they make it in the league.
