    $27461 tax free? Are you kidding me for only 45 days of playing? Not NBA salary but sure beats D league shitty wages after taxes.

    9k a month X 12 months is 108k a year. What's wrong with that?

    "you can only have 2 americans on the floor" jesus christ, i always knew that D1 college ball players are substantially better than anything below the NBA weather its europe or asia but i didnt know that theu actually made freaking rule about that. But i guess its more to prevent a for example a saudi team with 80% American players meaning you have basically no saudi players on your team

    Dude seems unlikeable. A "war country or whatever." Laughing when telling the bomb story. Seems a weird reality for him. Dude hooped at Ole Miss, for sure, but he's def a narcissist. Was then, is now

    He could’ve play in Hong Kong, Philippines, Japan etc which has better environments, better fan base, better players etc. You’ll never play well if you’re playing straight for cash.

    It's kind of sad that this country bumpkin gets a chance to see exotic and interesting places but chooses to spend his time eating junk food in his hotel room. Such a waste.
    Also I doubt he ends up seeing that money they promised him. They just told him that monthly salary to get him over there.
    Dude seems kind of ignorant too, making comments about the local's names, etc.

    Iraq = aweful mess…..the CIA, military-industrial complex and globalist paedophile bankers absolutely decimated Iraq and culture. Such a shame. Who is ever going to stop these satanic absurdly wealthy bastards? If Trump can make even a dint in this 200yr old swamp, then his tenure will be a success. JKF was one red-pilled mutherfcka whose legacy may have been greater then we realise…..we have one BIG shot my friends – the Internet; the only thing that aboslute terririfes them.

    I am a little surprised these guys are not more interested in exploring the country they are playing in. To me this would be a rare opportunity to see another kind of world. A basketball career is short-lived, but the opportunity to travel around the world and see foreign cultures when you are young is priceless.
