Anyways, he told me I would get to practice with the varsity team, and if someone has grade problems or is injured, I can play limited minutes in the games. I get my own jersey tho, and I chose 23.

Things aren't so bad I guess, but now I'm worried people are gonna shit on me and ridicule me cause I'm the manager

Don't worry so much what other people think.

It's pretty obvious that being a basketball player is going to play a very small part in your life. Not trying to be a dick, just stating the obvious. So your decision now is how important is it for you to be involved in the game?

Is coaching maybe enough for you? If so you've got a great opportunity to see the inner workings.

If not it may be time to make that tough self-assessment and move on to an area in which you have a better opportunity for success.

You're in 12th grade and I know it seems like a huge deal, but this is a miniscule sample of what your life is going to be. You will have accomplishments and, unfortunately, disappointments that will make this look like nothing in comparison.

Whatever you choose to do, good luck.
