A year or so ago I posted a dated article about Providence College’s former star God Shamgod who left Providence with visions of NBA fame only to live a lonely vagabond life playing “professional” basketball in China. I do not wish Marco Lovett bad luck but I sincerely doubt he will enjoy fame and fortune in the NBA. I believe that Marcus’ future, as an undersized guard may resemble God Shamgod’s experience.


"Professional" basketball players in China earn up to three million "dollars" a year tax free. That's sounds like a pretty good salary for a 22 year old. Of course there is the lonely vagabond life of the professional athlete to consider, travelling first class from hotel to hotel and strange trim to even stranger trim. I don't understand how you don't understand how that might sound intriguing to a young man barely out of his teens. As opposed to living in a dormitory in scenic Jamaica.


Americans working in China are still subject to taxes by Uncle Sam unless they are no longer residents of the U.S. Not as simple as working I. China for a year or two, collecting a tax free salary a d heading back to the US without any tax obligation.

Also, LoVett would not make anything close to $2 million in China to start.


What's the minimum salary 22 year old Boo Harvey would have accepted to play basketball in China?



Are you referring to the real Boo Harvey or the pudgy 41 year old vertically challenged attorney that posts under his name?


I wasn’t refuting your post, just clarifying. I agree it would have been tempting for the real Boo Harvey as he had a daughter while in school.

For my part, no amount of money in the world would stop me from being the starting pg for SJU for four years. Have you seen the movie Brewster’s Millions? I often envision myself as the Richard Pryor character, but instead of pitching against the Yankees, I’m the starting pg for the Johnnies.

The political atmosphere of today in China and being so close to NORTH Korea Is not conducive to be playing a carefree basketball career. If i could not play in the NBA would not take that route

I always wanted to be the starting Center. I have no problem putting on weight.
