The 'About' section of his website describes him as "a seasoned businessman, Motivational and Transformational Speaker, Best Selling Author and Success Consultant." But to our specific purposes, the most note-worthy words come a line later. NBA. Michael Jordan. Charles Barkley. Chicago Bulls.
Now, the global-hoops-traveller-slash-author-motivational-speaker brings his experience and talents to India. Courtney's new career move has brought him to Hyderabad, where he is one part of the broadcast team - along with Paul Crane - covering and commentating at the UBA Basketball League in the city's Gachibowli Stadium. Courtney will cover the league in Hyderabad until April 3rd, which will be the league's season 2 finale.
While young Indian players at the UBA Basketball League try out this interesting new opportunity in their careers, having Courtney in the periphery should be a lesson that basketball can open various doors into their future. Additionally, Courtney should bring a further dash of professionalism and legitimacy to this upstart league as it fights for its place within Indian basketball.
