Cleveland Cavaliers Paul Silas on How to Get into the NBA
Paul Silas, former NBA star, and coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team, gives advice to high school and college athletes on getting into the pros.? Now, I will not get into that right now but you know they have advisers, some of the guys are there for them so they are advising these kids about college you know, my advice to them was to go to the college that?s gonna give you both academic and athletics. So, to me and I talked to all guys what sets a player a part and a person in general, a part from the norm is that if he got some college education. So you might make all the money in the world but if you don?t have a college education, then you?re not gonna be at the elite. So, you know you have to go and get that and I also think a lot of guys that had made a ton of money and because they won?t want well education, they lost it all. So, it behooved them to go for the money and so forth athletically but at least go back to school and try to get that education also.?
