Chris Thomas
After just seven seasons of playing professionally overseas, former McDonald's All-American point guard and Indiana's Mr. Basketball, Chris Thomas surprisingly threw in the towel.

"The love for the game and the passion for being number one simply weren't there for me anymore," he told Eurobasket from his home in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The 30-year-old Notre Dame alumnus has played in five countries -- Italy, Greece, Poland, Spain and Israel, but is now building a career in the corporate business world as a financial representative at Milwaukee based Northwestern Mutual, a Life Insurance and Financial Services company. Thomas is also the assistant coach for Southport high school's basketball team.

Last season, Thomas helped lead Israel's Galil/Gilboa to the Balkan league championship, averaging 6.6 points and 4 assists in 24 minutes. In the Israeli league, Thomas upped his numbers to 8.8 points and 4.8 assists in 30 minutes of action as Galil/Gilboa finished the regular season in second place.

For Thomas, learning the nuances of the European game and positioning himself as one of the top point guards statistically in the prestigious Spanish ACB League was the simple part of his overseas grind: "I dealt with lawsuits and not seeing all my money abroad and the business side really took away a lot of the love and purity I had for the game," he said. "It was special for me to walk away with no regrets after winning the Balkan title with Galil/Gilboa.

Despite receiving multiple European offers throughout the summer, Thomas found himself juggling between a career as a basketball player and that of a family man. "Family is the most important thing to me and I had a son before coming to Israel. I battled with my priorities of being a humble father and fulfilling my ego of playing ball and being in the spotlight," Thomas added.

According to the Indianapolis native and ex-Pike high school two-time state champion (2000 and 2001), basketball was and always has been about being the best on the court: "Basketball is and always will be a big part of my life but it wasn't my whole life, so it was easy to step away. The passion of being number one wasn't there for me anymore and fortunately, I was able to play at a high level even though I wasn't exhorting a lot of energy. I enjoy the fact that I walked away from the game knowing it was my time. I retired on my own terms."

Thomas currently holds a number of Notre Dame school records. He is the only player in Notre Dame basketball history to score more than 1,700 points and dish out 600-plus assists. He is also ranked first in steals with 244. Thomas was assigned point guard to the First Team All Notre Dame team for the celebration game of 100 years of Notre Dame basketball.
