Whether you play in a major international basketball league or a smaller developing club, there are always going to be journalists and media outlets covering your games. In addition, you may have several opportunities during your career to make public appearances as a member of your team or as an individual athlete. Events where you can expect media presence include:
- Basketball related appearances
Regular season games, playoffs, league championships, international events, pre-season games, athlete’s drafts and training camps can all be events when you could expect the presence of media.
- Public appearances
Schools, civic groups and health and sports organisations may ask you to appear or speak at events related to your profile and success as an athlete. In these instances, you may not face the intense questioning of reporters following the excitement of a game.
