Risks and challenges

We do not see much risk involved. It is possible that my book Below The Rim may take slightly longer to finishing writing than expected. To ensure that we reach our goal of shipping Below The Rim by next summer, my co-authors Jerry Castro & Eric Schulman will be writing every single day to deliver the book on time by August 2015.

Though I will be playing professional basketball overseas, the three of us will be in constant communication about the book.

Furthermore, Tucker Max's people (the editors, designers, and marketers that I will be working with) are dedicated professionals that will do their all to ensure that Below The Rim stays on track for a book release next summer.

FAQ

  • Actually, my book is real life and the truth is crazier than any fiction. You've heard all about college scandals on the news, but Below The Rim puts you in the story and shows you EXACTLY how it all goes down.

    Last updated:
  • No, but a lot of my friends and family are.

    Last updated:
  • Damn, you guys are nosey! Mind your own business.

    Last updated:
  • I’m currently weighing offers to play professional basketball in The NBA Developmental League or overseas in Europe.

    Last updated:
  • About half of the book is written. We had to take a break from writing to focus on organizing the Kickstarter campaign, but as soon as we hit our goal it will be back to pushing out stories all day long.

    Last updated:
  • Jerry, Eric, and I have a great dynamic. When I'm on the road, I'll record a story on my laptop and email it to them. The three of us hop on a Google Doc and go over every single word until we're happy. Between basketball and Below The Rim, I don't have much free time, but I want my stories to reach the public so in the end it's worth it.
