Taquan Dean and Rob Gill Join Us to Discuss Basketball Insights and Making a Difference

After playing his college basketball career at the University of Louisville, followed by 16 years professionally in Europe, Taquan Dean is now looking to make a difference. He wants to share his stories with the next generation.

When Taquan met CYInterview sponsor, financial services professional Rob Gill, Mr. Gill gained new insights into the game of basketball and how those life lessons apply to success off the court.

Taquan and Rob joined us recently on CYInterview.

Rob Gill shared what he gained from Taquan Dean after they first met:

“What’s interesting is the moment him and I connected to 90 days later, the level of congruency and intentionality has been insane. But here’s what I will say, right after we talked a little bit, he really drew the picture and this is for business owners that are out there right now, he spoke about the fundamentals of basketball or the fundamentals if you want to talk football, blocking/tackling. And the thing that stood out the most was the time he spent overseas, he discovered that the culture of basketball was team-oriented and fundamentals, which is what we lack here in the United States. As a matter of fact, we promote individuality.”

Taquan Dean said he wants to make a positive impact on the next generation so they avoid the pitfalls he experienced:

“The backstory is I had a 16 year career in Europe. And within that 16 years, I had nine different agents and I experienced the dark side of Europe for the first eight years of my career, which was not being paid on time, not being paid my contracts, being put in different countries where I didn’t get the best care. So, within my career, I always said when I was gonna retire, I was gonna help the next generation not experience what I went through because it’s not being talked about.”
