Max Besselink leaves the USA and returns to Finland

Apparently the expert needs to follow this board.

If you haven’t done so, check the story link within the tweet. It’s a translated story so reads awkward but notes that school/academics was a consideration. This is what I suspected…players have to take summer school classes to be eligible to fully participate in the summer practices…after taking summer classes, Besselink was probably questioning whether he wanted to slog it out in the classroom for 4 years, there’s a limited number ‘easy’ classes to take, the rest are rigorous enough that you’re going to have to put in work. College isn’t for everyone. I doubt his pro contract is overly lucrative, but the opportunity to focus on hoops 24/7 is very appealing.

So maybe a good and bad of summer enrollment. If he had come in fall, does he feel the same way with most people on campus? We’ll never know, I guess.

Being paid to live in Finland and play basketball doesn’t sound too bad to me.
