Default Re: How to make it to the NBA

Don't give yourself a unrealistic goal, you should be happy to get a NCAA scholarship..


First I say you have to get into college first then after there it could be fair game depending what school you play for, etc. Get a college recruiting tape going, ask your HS coaches to notify some college coaches, send tapes and talk to the colleges. Make sure you get good grades on tests and SAT's and other shit. If you can make a D1 or D2 team and you start or get PT eventually you can have a shot then you can possibly go oversea's in Europe then w/e.

But you have to be a good player though.. You can't be a 6'3 center first year on varsity type of player. Also getting a scholarship is really hard.

I'd say don't even get your goals to play in the NBA, just try to get a free college scholarship. Best of luck

John Starks bagged groceries for several years after playing in high school before going on to play at community colleges, Oklahoma State University and then the NBA. With that being said he was still known to scouts based on his high school career.

If you have never been recruited and college/nba scouts have never come to your games to see you play then you don't have a chance at making it. I can't think of any NBA level talent that has gone unnoticed and still made it to the league in the last 25-30 years. Teams have scouts who go to elementary school and middle school games to identify standout players. If you aren't a standout player by now you won't ever be one. Some players develop late (both Michael Jordan and John Wall weren't highly regarded at the beginning of their high school careers) but by their junior and senior years they were known and had scholarship offers. A late bloomer is still found and identified by scouts before his/her high school career is finished.

Scottie Pippen never received a single scholarship offer, he was the team manager for his Arkansas team, until the coaches saw he was the best player when they played pick up games with the team.

It's a game of speed and length. If you're over 6 foot and can run then that's a good start.

The rest depends on your abilities and dedication. As well as studying schemes and coaching systems.

You kind a know if you're gonna make it or not around 16.

Note I said nobody in the last 25-30 years. Pippen graduated high school in 1983 which falls within that range (27 years ago). Thanks for the reminder though, he is one of the very few players (not to mention superstars) who wasn't recruited by any schools by the time he'd finished high school. Hakeem was class of 1981 (29 years ago). Hakeem was recruited though out of the Nigerian high school he graduated from by HOF coach Guy Lewis. Lewis recruited Hakeem after getting a tip about him from a friend. The point is that if the original poster hasn't been noticed/scouted/recruited yet and he's nearly finished his high school basketball career then he's not a standout player and doesn't have a shot at making it to the NBA. Pippen's don't occur anymore, I gave the range 25-30 years because the scouting and recruiting of players changed dramatically around this time.

doesn't change the fact that OP is probably nowhere near 6'10 or 7' so unless he's athletic, strong and possesses tremendous skill, he ain't gonna wind up in the nba

if you are posting on ISH asking how to get to the NBA, you should probably go outside and work on your game.

worry about getting a college scholarship first. ......... seriously.
