From the outside, being a professional athlete seems glamorous and sexy. But, what if your name is not Michael, Kobe or Lebron? What if the highest level of athleticism you achieve is as an almost 7-foot tall overseas professional basketball player? Overseas Famous chronicles the strangely humorous, challenging and inspiring story of former overseas professional basketball player Kevin Owens. Starting his basketball career as a senior in high school and not attending a nationally ranked collegiate program, Owens still found himself traveling across four continents, enduring the hustle of the game and the erratic lifestyle of an athlete. Owens' journey is far from ordinary. His unbelievable stories ranging from NBA workouts guarded by one of the best and dirtiest defenders in NBA history to an unwilling participant in a lit flare toss helps the reader understand what it's actually like playing basketball overseas. Overseas Famous tackles many issues Americans deal with while playing basketball abroad, including language barriers, different styles of play, and the inevitable downfalls like missed paychecks and being ghosted by an organization after a substantial injury. This story is an honest and entertaining tale about the travels and tribulations of playing pro basketball worldwide.
