Here's the video, and get inspired:
This video is from Summer, 2015. I was getting ready for the draft. Hard work is the that opens many doors for you and helps you achieve your goals. #nbadraft2015 #wisewisdom #throwbackthursday #oneinabillion #nbaindia #workhardplayhard #anythingispossible #dreamscometrue #dallasmavericks #nba #texaslegends #nbadleague #imgacademy #img
The son of a farmer, Satnam grew up in the tiny village of Ballo Ke in Punjab. By the age of nine, he was already six feet tall, and at the advice of an uncle, he was sent to Ludhiana Basketball Academy to hone his talent.
At 14, he was awarded a four-year scholarship to train in the United States. He kept making rapid strides, while also returning to India during his breaks to represent his home state of Punjab in the National Championships.
He has also represented the Indian junior and senior national teams. He was drafted by Dallas Mavericks in the NBA.
