Basketball: Cordell Davenport Visits Las Vegas

Basketball Self Improvement Author Cordell Davenport Visits
Las Vegas High School AAU Tournaments and NBA Summer Leagues

Sports inspirational speaker
Cordell Davenport doesn’t just motivate aspiring basketball
athletes at high schools and colleges, he goes one-on-one
with them during the most intense periods of their lives —
at the Las Vegas basketball tournaments that can decide
their futures.

Coaches can call 510-863-0740 to have Davenport speak to
their teams during the tournaments on his favorite topic,
“Don’t Foul Out in the Game of Life.” Players and coaches
can tweet him @BTSCordell to locate where he will be in Las
Vegas (from July 18-28th) to receive the copy of his
one-page life-changing roadmap called “You Have To Be Who
You Want To Be, Before You Are Who You Want To Be!” which
contains the nine questions everyone must ask to be
successful in life after sports.

“I’ll be on hand to lend guidance, support and inspiration
to student athletes as they compete at a level they have
never been exposed to,” said Davenport, author of
“Basketball To Success: How To Be The Prepared Student
Athlete and Not Foul Out In Life.”

When the NBA Summer League comes to Las Vegas, Davenport
will be there to provide counseling and support to students
athletes and aspiring NBA players. He’ll stay for the AAU
high school tournaments that also make Las Vegas the
basketball capital of America for one month.

“The pressure on student athletes is intense at these
tournaments. First of all, their futures are at stake. Will
they get the attention of college coaches? Will they get
recruited by top schools? I can help them cope with the
pressures and help them see the big picture,” said
Davenport, a former college athlete who now advises
basketball coaches and basketball students at the high
school and college levels.

“I have a genuine interest in helping basketball players. I
speak their language. Basketball is my passion and
self-improvement is my lifestyle. I’ll be happy to speak to
their entire teams, or one-on-one with them and even meet
with their parents and coaches,” said Davenport who founded
Basketball to Success, an association for current and former
basketball players to network, get career advice and learn
how to grow with self-improvement.

Davenport is also available for interviews with the media.
Interviews can be scheduled immediately for future
broadcasts or printings. To schedule an interview with
Cordell Davenport, please call 510-863-0740 or e-mail

“Years later they will wish they could go back and do things
differently, but unfortunately it is too late. They are a
day late and a dollar short. If they were focused and
prepared to better themselves, they could avoid life
obstacles,” said Davenport, a popular speaker on high school
and college campuses.

Athletes, parent and coaches can download Davenport’s free,
special report called “Be The Point Guard of Your Career.
How To Find Your Path After School,” by going to

The Basketball to Success book mentions 5 “Foul Out Habits”:

1. Players waste a lot of energy without getting where
they really want to go.

2. Players don’t bother to learn the rules and
principles of self-improvement.

3. Players hang around the “wrong” crowd.

4. Players don’t take accountability of their actions.

5. Players don’t have self-discipline.
