Title: Nic to Turkey
Post by: RDonnelly09 on October 19, 2009, 10:26:01 PM
I'm not sure how many people have been following the big 3 since they left campus, but Dominic James is now playing in Turkey.  On Sunday October 18th he led his team, Mercin, in scoring with 27 points in a 92-67 loss to Efes Pilsen.

He leads the Turkish Basketball League in scoring.  It's a start.

Just tell him to stay clear of any of Bill Hayes's hangouts and he should be fine  ;)

The prison Bill Hayes resided in is now a much-improved location to stay -- the prison courtyard has never looked better

Rashard Griffith has repeatedly turned down offers to make an NBA roster because he makes more money in Europe...he has played mostly for teams in Turkey.

He is in Mersin, a town on the Mediteranean Sea opposite Cyprus and relatively close to the Syrian border.  I am sure it is a very nice climate but not exacty a cosmopolitan place.  I hope he saves some money as he probably makes decent coin and the cost of living wouldn't be too high in a place like that.

I am sure he will do well and he will be picked up by bigger (i.e., higher paying) European club and/or an NBA team eventually.

I am sure just like every other American playing in Europe they have taken care of his housing and transportation costs.
