Called for Traveling

My Nomadic Life Playing Pro Basketball around the World

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Called for Traveling is a pro basketball journey that spans four continents, seven countries and twelve teams over eleven hilarious and adventurous years. After playing his college ball at Penn State, Tyler Smith had a path in mind of where he wanted his pro basketball career to lead. Bringing his own toilet paper to away games, courts made of concrete, and fully-geared riot police at every stadium were not part of his original dream.

Where were all the big contracts people talked about? Would he even have a job next season—or next week? And would he be playing for free this month because the team didn’t feel like paying him?

In this highly unstable and unorthodox overseas lifestyle as a professional basketball player, Smith draws readers in quickly with his humor and ability to share his clever stories that seem outrageous, but are 100 percent true. His attitude and faith are tested relentlessly through bounced paychecks, injuries, and the seemingly endless frustrating reality of people around him speaking a language he could not understand.

From Italy to Japan to Uruguay, and even the NBA, the challenges and adventures only accelerate as Tyler’s wife and kids are added to the overseas equation. His unique story is highly engaging whether or not you’re a basketball junkie. Called for Traveling is an honest and entertaining inside look at one man’s journey playing pro basketball around the world.

Customer Reviews

Exceptional Story-Teller

Without parallel, the most enjoyable book I’ve read in years. Within a few chapters, you’ll develop a rapport with the author and you’ll spend the rest of the book feeling like you’re sitting around a campfire being told stories from an old-friend. Light, uplifting, inspiring, and full of laughs; following Tyler’s journey over the years is immensely enjoyable.
