Image result for robert reggie arnold basketball photosReggie Arnold, 6’6”, 215 shooting guard has just finished his 6tth year in professional basketball.  I had a long talk with Reggie who stopped over to say hello at the Antelope Valley College workout yesterday.  He has worked his way up to be one of the top ranked professional players in Europe.  He played for the Greek league this year and was in the top ten of scoring in the elite league with the A-1 level AGO Rethymno Aegean team and led his team to the playoffs this year. 

The Greek League has been one of the most competitive basketball leagues in Europe through the years, and it is widely regarded as the second best national domestic league in the world, after only the NBA.  It currently ranks among the best national domestic leagues in the world (excluding the NBA), such as Liga ACB in Spain and VTB United League (counts as the domestic league for Russian clubs). The average salary for the Greek League is $250,000, far from the NBA salaries, but for someone who has been very fiscally responsible like Reggie, he looks to be “slipping by” just fine thank you.  Smart young man planning for the future when basketball ends. 

Six straight summers, Robert “Reggie” Arnold, 6’6” 215 shooting guard who graduated from Antelope Valley College(Lancaster HS) has come home to AVC  from Europe..  After two outstanding years at AVC, he received a full ride to Boise State University where he led them to the NCAA national tournament.  He has played six years in professional basketball in Europe;  Austria(two years), Finland(two years) and Belgium(one year, Greece(one year)
