Default Is it too late?

What if you're 22 (23 in a few months)?

Do you feel its too late to make something of basketball and take it as far as possible?

Graduated from university in May this year, and now my education is finished I wanna tak it far. I felt it was important to stay focused and take a few years out to get my degree.

Do you want the real answer or the typical answer people will give you? :)

First you need to set goals for yourself. They should be realistic and specific. "as far as possible"..."sky's the limit"... those are not ideal goals to have. Set short term goals and focus on achieving them.

Recreationally take it for all it is worth. Enjoy for as long as you can physically and when it is time to stop it is time to stop. As far as a career I would have to doubt it, though. There is more to life than basketball, but you should still enjoy it while you can.

what do you feel you need to improve on? because i might have some download links that could help you improve some aspects of your game from shooting, dribbling, passing, conditioning, strength training and some vertical jump training programs.
