How do I become a Professional Basketball Player?

I love sports, especially basketball. It is my dream to become an NBA player in the future. I practice on my own, as well as with others. I was also part of a community basketball team. I also love to play video games and listen to music. I also played football during my younger age. But basketball has become a passion for me. #basketball #sports #athlete

Matt’s Answer

As a former college basketball player and someone with the same dream of playing in the NBA when I was younger, I'm going to start out with it is very, very hard. But that doesn't mean it is not possible. You have to commit to it every hour of every day if you want to make it to that level. It's not only the work you put on the court, but maybe more importantly the work you put in when you are off it. This include strength training, diet, recovery and studying film of yourself and others on how to be a better basketball player. Know your weaknesses and work on those areas. Play as much hoop as possible because that is how you get better. Wishing you the best. Don't ever let someone tell you can't be successful at something. Go prove it.

https://www.wikihow.com/Get-in-the-NBA and https://lowkeynba.com/become-nba-player/ are pretty simplistic but a good starting point.

The thing that jumped out at me is that the majority of the https://www.nba.com/players 546 NBA players played some college ball. So making your high school team and playing in college would likely increase your changes to make it.

Here are some other suggestion https://www.careervillage.org/questions/329619/how-do-you-become-a-professional-basketball-player-how-old-should-you-be-when-you-start-to-playpractice
