A new job as a professional basketball pool player isn’t exactly out of the ordinary, but it does come with a few extra responsibilities, as many of the current pool players know.
While there’s a ton of work to be done to become a full-time player, there are some perks to be had.
We spoke to one of the pool players and he told us that he’d like to get his first professional contract soon.
If he gets it, he’d love to be on the floor as soon as possible.
This is his first job with the NBA, so we asked him to give us his take on the job.
Here are the five key things he wanted to know:What are the most common questions you get asked during interviews?
The most common thing that people ask me is, ‘Are you looking for a job?’ or ‘Are the [NBA] players hiring you?’
Or something along those lines.
There’s so much to be said for it.
If you are a person who wants to be a part of a team and have a lot of fun, then you should be.
If not, you should probably just stick around.
If you were hired to be part of the NBA pool, what are the perks you’d like?
If I had to say, the biggest perk would be that the opportunity is just so much better than just being a full time player.
When I was a player, I had a lot more fun.
I had more opportunities.
When you are on the court, there’s no pressure.
When the game is on, there is no pressure, too.
You can just go out there and be yourself and have fun.
You don’t have to do anything.
It’s all part of being a basketball player.
How does it feel to be in that situation?
It’s a dream come true.
I can’t say it enough.
I never really thought I’d be a professional athlete.
I always wanted to be the best.
I knew it was going to be tough at first, but I think it was because I was kind of a little kid, and that’s when I first started to think, ‘Oh, my God, this is going to work out for me.’
It’s a great job, it’s a really good job, and I have such fun doing it.
But I think you’re always going to have to make the sacrifices.
When it comes to the salary cap, you have to sacrifice a little bit.
You have to give up some time off to play.
So I’m just grateful for the opportunity.
You were an All-American and one of your teammates.
What’s the biggest thing that stands out about being in the NBA?
The biggest thing is that you get to play with some of the best players in the world.
They’re like family.
It was great being with them.
What was really special about being with some guys who are the best at their craft, and you get an opportunity to play alongside some of those guys?
It was really nice.
It gave me a little insight into the culture of the league.
I think the most special thing is just the players who are playing in the league and who are on a nightly basis.
It gives you a glimpse into the life of a professional sports player.
How much money does it cost to become an NBA pool player?
You can get paid between $2,500 to $4,000 per game.
That’s a lot for a kid.
So if you’re a kid in the ninth grade, that’s probably going to put you at the bottom of the socioeconomic spectrum.
I got my first contract in 10th grade, and the biggest paycheck I got was $2.25 an hour.
How did you decide to get into pool work?
I was in ninth grade.
It wasn’t a big deal for me.
When [my friend] Chris got drafted, I was thinking, ‘You know what?
I’ll just make it work.’
But I wanted to have a shot at it.
What if I was the next guy on the list?
I wanted the chance to be that guy.
I just figured I could do it.
How did you meet the pool team?
I think that’s kind of the biggest misconception.
There was no pool team in high school.
My friends and I started talking about it when we were in the eighth grade.
I remember talking to Chris and telling him about it.
I told him, ‘I don’t know if you guys are in the right league.
You guys are really good.’
So he said, ‘Hey, I’ll go to college and see if I can find you guys.’
I said, OK, I’m going to go for it.’
He started looking for guys to come with him, and we met up.
I started working out with him for a year.
That was when we decided that we were going to do this.
What were you doing at the time?
I had no clue what I was doing, so
