Ryan "Arch of Dimes" Arcidiacono was introduced to sports and athletics by his parents at an extremely young age. His future career was launched by a 6 foot plastic hoop and mini basketballs that he began playing with when he was 2-3 years old.
There are two key moments in the career of Ryan Arcidiacono that stand out above all others. The first was winning the Collegiate National Championship with Villanova University. This would be Villanova's first championship in 31 years. Being on that winning team had an extra special meaning for Ryan because both of his parents had also attended Villanova.
The second key moment in the basketball career of Ryan Arcidiacono that stands out above even his National Championship win is the fact that he achieved his dream to play in the NBA. Despite being on this successful college team with Villanova, Ryan Arcidiacono was not drafted by the NBA initially.
Instead, Ryan would spend several years grinding it out in the NBA's G League in an effort to catch the eye of an NBA team. He would eventually achieve his dream and be signed by the illustrious Chicago Bulls.
His advice to athletes who are pursuing their dreams of someday playing in the NBA is to never give up and to keep grinding. Not being picked for certain teams or certain opportunities became a fuel for Ryan to continue to work harder and drive him ever so slightly closer to finding success. Using those situations as fuel, rather than road blocks will go a long way in helping anyone achieve their goals.
