Tim Parham: The Life of Playing Basketball Overseas

Tim Parham has done a lot in his basketball career. In this interview he tells us what athletes should watch out for so they won't get scammed. Tim also will reveal when (if ever) he will retire.

Joe Gaiter: What is your view on life right now?

Tim Parham: Life is pretty decent right now. I recently came back from Chicago, was out there training for 2 months with my agency WCM (Worldwide Career Management) three times a day of very intense workouts. I had a couple NBA workouts that went quite well also. So now I'm back in ATL training and staying ready for my next challenge. Overseas

Joe Gaiter: So what happened with your deal to play for Russia?

Tim Parham: The gig in Russia I supposedly had turned out to be a scam. The team I was supposed to go to was legit but it wasn't the team that was sending for me. Somebody posed as a team manager and was sending my agent messages about their interest in me, offered me a nice chunk of change and I accepted. Whoever was sending the messages to my agency was scamming my agency out of thousands from fake immigration fees and documentation. They led us on for a month. I kind of figured it was shady after me not leaving 2 weeks after I signed the contract.

Joe Gaiter: Is there a lot of fraud in Overseas basketball and how can someone make sure that they are not getting a bad deal?

Tim Parham: There are a lot of frauds when dealing with overseas basketball. If you get a contract make sure you do your homework on the team. And if a team asks for money, 9 times outta 10 it's a scam. They are supposed to pay you, not the other way around.

Joe Gaiter: The last time we talked you told us about the video game you were in. Have you done any more of that work?

Tim Parham: As you know I was honored to be a part of the NBA 2k family. They said they'll bring me back in the near future for more motion capture. As of now I've sent them close to 6 guys to do motion capture. Happy to look out for amazing athletes.

Joe Gaiter: Who is your agent/manager?

Tim Parham: My agency is Worldwide Career Management. They are a full package organization. We are more of like a family than an agency. Brian Brundage is the CEO and my agent. WCM is all about hard work and results. When I was in Chicago me and the other basketball guys went hard 3 times a day.7am weight training, 2pm basketball skills And pick up, 5pm legs strength, agility and plyometrics. I'm excited to be a part of such a first class organization.

Joe Gaiter: What advice would you give someone who wants to play overseas?

Tim Parham: For the people inquiring about playing overseas, you basically have to market yourself. Get some game film, stats, anything that will make you attractive to teams. There's an agent page on . Send your bio to every agent on the list. The more you send the more likely you'll find an agent to service you. You have to put in the leg work on and off the court.

Joe Gaiter: Where is the best and worst place you ever played basketball overseas?

Tim Parham: Favorite place I've played in my career this far has to be Dubai. Words can't express the beauty of this place. From the buildings to the culture, it's definitely #1 on the list. The worst experience I've had is playing in the Dominican. I wasn't paid and the team didn't even pay for my hotel. When I tried to leave I was basically held hostage until the team paid. Crazy stuff. As far as retiring, I feel like I have at least 8-10 years left if I stay healthy. Thanks to my work ethic and WCM for the facilities and perks, my body is in top notch shape!

Joe Gaiter: Do you miss your college experience at UMES?

Tim Parham: I def miss playing college ball for UMES. I had a great career there and built off it. Definitely a learning experience.

Joe Gaiter: Who do you think will be in the NBA Finals and why?

Tim Parham: I'm not sure about who will take it this year. Clippers are playing great ball, the Lakers aren't even in the playoff race, and the heat have been very inconsistent. I think the Bulls have been playing excellent basketball. The defense they implement every night is outstanding. If D Rose comes back this season they will def be a problem! My boy Taj Gibson invited me to their game when they came down here to ATL. Good times.

Joe Gaiter: Final Words?

Tim Parham: I'm very excited how far I've come not only in basketball but in life! God has been very good to me and the blessings keep rolling in so I give all the glory to him! Everybody can keep up with me on my twitter and Instagram @tpgotgame and also check out my website .
