After a 6 year hiatus, I'll be playing professionally for the St Pete Tide of the ABA this year.
I played professionally for 6 years, before that I played Divison I college basketball. Basketball was my only life for a long time. Then, I took a step back, and got into the working world.
Now, I'm doing both. I'll continue my full time job as a Realtor for Benoot Realty in St Pete. Basketball is truly just for the love of the game again. I enjoy practice as much as the games. I love the camaraderie. I love competing at a high level. The ABA schedule works well with work and my travels.
My goal coming in is simply to help. I want to help the young guys do big things. Whether it's getting going overseas, improving on their game, or just helping win games. I'm not hunting for minutes or stats like the old days. I'm just going to enjoy the ride and get in where I fit in.
I'll update with links/stats, etc. Check the schedule to the left for our most recent whereabouts.
Here I talk with my former AAU teammate and buddy from South Jersey, Tyson Hartnett. Talking about basketball & life. Tyson does a great job!
A quick interview with the creator of Underdog Sports. Talking about my experiences overseas and in the NBA.
Take a look at a different type of interview on the 76ers sub-Reddit. Plenty of interesting talking points provided by Redditors around the world. It's always fun talking basketball with fans of the game. #trusttheprocess and long live the Castleberry Era!
