LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Recent Siena graduate Rob Poole is starting his career as a professional basketball player.
The shooting guard is launching his career in Poland after signing with a team named Start Lublin.
He’ll be getting paid for the first time to play the game he loves fulfilling a lifelong goal.
“It’s funny cause my mom is, like, ‘You’re a professional now. That’s awesome. You get to say you’re a pro,’” Poole said. “But the real pros are making millions and millions of dollars. I’m making pennies compared to everyone else, but I’m excited over there in a different country. I’m gonna experience the culture and stuff like that.”
