By Danny Mills | An Aussie and a NBA Scout - My journey, insights on how to get here, thoughts on Aussie pathways and education opportunity for readers

September 9, 2017

Preface by Janx.....


If you’re a player or a coach in Australia with dreams of making the NBA, or wanting to help lead and guide others to maximise their chance to get there then this is your chance to hear it from an Aussie who is actually in the NBA.  His role is that of scout with the Philadelphia 76ers, the man is Danny Mills.  Danny is Aussie born and has also been an international NBA scout prior to his current position for the 76ers so his insights and journey are very unique and valuable for all of us readers. 


Danny is someone whose conversations and insights on featured athletes I have really valued and the other week we had a conversation about his journey to get to where he is today.  His story is inspirational for anyone wanting to do the hard work to achieve in any field of endeavour, and I decided to ask if he would blog to our site on his journey.  His story on his journey will make for a great read in itself but I also hope he provides insights on how to get to the NBA as a player or a coach.


I have asked Danny to highlight his journey to his current position today, cool stories from life in the NBA, key knowledge and skillsets he developed along the way that helped him obtain his role with the 76ers.  His insights and thoughts on the level of the NBL and how the gamestyle compares globally are going to be interesting.  For young athletes (and coaches developing those kids) out there what kind of skills and qualities do NBA teams look for that they can develop?  Danny also has an amazing educational opportunity, accessible, affordable, developed by some of the best known names in the NBA that I hope he will tell us about.  It is worth considering if you want to learn skills to become a scout and/or just gain insights into how the NBA operates.


Thanks Danny.


Over to Danny.....
