Thanks. That is at least a little decent info during a slow time for basketball news.

Good info as always... get us some updates on Shon Peck-Love and Jamal Faulkner :)
I didn't realize how may countries play professional basketball. If a guy wanted to dedicate 3 or 4 years overseas to play he could set himself up for life nicely.

The money is decent also. I believe it is tax free as well.
