Blake Schilb started his professional career in Czech Republic, playing two years for CEZ Nymburk before moving on to France. But the Czech nation was not prepared to let Schilb leave so easily, ensnaring the talented point-forward through family - Schilb met his future-wife during his time at Nymburk, and his children have been raised speaking their mother's language. Schilb has seen plenty of other great sights during his time in Europe, spending four successful years with ES Chalon-sur-Saone in France (where he won Finals MVP) before moving on to Crvena zvezda. He returned to France seven months later and helped to lead Paris-Levallois to the Eurocup Quarter-Finals in 2014-15. In July 2015 it was announced that he will join Galatasaray for the upcoming season.
