After leaving Benfica, Clifford retires: "Two practices a day, listening to a coach who knows less than me..." - Basketball

Two weeks after Benfica announced his departure, Dennis Clifford announced his retirement at the age of 30. The post, who had another season under contract with the Eagles, revealed that he no longer wants to play the sport professionally and that he intends to dedicate himself to other areas in order to “free himself from financial slavery.”

“It’s time for a new chapter. The last few years have brought me new challenges. The biggest one is the fact that I’m getting older and I don’t use the phrase literally because I feel like I can physically carry on. playing until age 55 I’m still stubborn I’m getting “old” because there are other things I want to achieve in my life and it’s hard for me to justify 10 and a half months of physical consumption, mentally and emotionally for basketball season, away from family . I am 30 years old and if my career had been more sustainable, I might still be playing. But that’s not the case, and that’s okay,” the now former North American player began in a Linkedin post, where he lists three reasons for not pavilions.

“1. I don’t want to feel like I’m wasting my time. Two workouts a day, listening to a coach who often knows less than me. August 8 to mid-June, year after year…

2. My career has stalled. Me and basketball are at an impasse and I’m not producing as much as I expected at the beginning of my career. The flame is no more. It’s because my head wants more than this life. I want to build something more important.

3. I need and want more things. Different things. I have a vision for my future, and spending my 30s playing basketball 24 hours a day, 7 days a week doesn’t fit into that vision. I want to create something that will have an impact and meaning for other people. I want to build my business empire. I want to be free from financial slavery. And even if you get a lot more, playing basketball abroad is still financial slavery.”

Clifford revealed that he has started several trials lately to move from basketball to another career related to marketing and training. “I have been involved in several startups (I have a good percentage in one of them), I am a freelance copywriter and have started my own digital marketing company. (…) For the past few months, I have been trying to build my own digital marketing company focused on personal trainers. Personal training is something I’ve always been passionate about throughout my career and now I feel like it’s the best way to serve people.”
