Do you think that overseas players of a certain age, who are not prospects or talents anymore, face more obstacles breaking into the NBA? Keifer Sykes: 100%. I feel it’s just politics even for guys that play overseas. You can definitely get lost in the shuffle. That has made my journey interesting. I didn’t only sit in Europe, I didn’t start or finish in Europe. I’ve played in South Korea and China, done the G League. My resume is decorated but it takes a little bit of luck, it’s about timing and who you know. You got to take chances on yourself. I took a lot of pay cuts and jobs to be in this position that people wouldn’t take. I had different agents and coaches that told me that I won’t be able to sign an NBA deal – people are still saying that now.
