Good Sports: THE INFLUENCE OF BASKETBALL

Six-foot-eight Samer Dhillon scored just three points in his final season with the USC Trojans Men’s basketball team, but the reserve forward scored those points in front of family and friends attending his last regular-season game.

“It was the most Indians ever at a USC game,” Dhillon told NBA India. “Aunties and uncles I haven’t met for ages—it was like a big Indian wedding!”

Dhillon, a premed major who also started an investment company, scored only seven points in his college basketball career, but it was still a major accomplishment. Only a few Indian-Americans have played Division 1 basketball. “Basketball has influenced my whole career,” Dhillon said. “I combined finance and athletics to create the wealth management company for athletes where I now manage a lot of money for NBA and NFL players. As with medicine, I want to do more medical research related with athletics, too, like concussions.”
