I'm glad the school stuck by their coach this time. They probably realized how insane it is for this guy to get in it with a coach on the first day of conditioning. It's not even basketball season yet. They're not even supposed to be having real practices yet.

If Lamelo went and finished his education, there would be absolutely no noticeable difference in his articulation or thought process, and likely he’d forget anything he’s learned the moment he gets handed his diploma, like 90% of other students...
bruh you just sh!t on yourself. You need to re-read what you typed and think about what it really means. Good luck.

I know what I said and that isn’t what I meant. I wouldn’t have been accepted into a top uni if I dropped out because of the process. They look at your high school performance, and for that reason I did my 4 years. Nothing in high school prepared me for my future career, nor will I apply most of what I learned in actual life. Sure, I had to take chemistry again, but I took AP chem in 10th grade. By the time I had to take gen chem 1 I forgot everything. Anyway, I’m getting off topic. The whole point is that HS is a literal shitshow and dropping out will not make you dumber than a dude who finishes it. Now if you take someone who is a bum, and drops out because they don’t want to do anything with their life, and compare them to someone who wants to become an accountant, then yeah, clearly the accountant will appear to be more “educated” because they will go on to earn their degree. But lets take that same example and change the second case to someone who gets their diploma, and ends up as a cashier at costco, which has happened to people I know. That education didn’t come in handy, did it? Now here’s where Ball comes in. Dude isn’t going to become a lawyer, we all know it. Now what’s wrong with someone like him dropping out? Not finishing his education means basically nothing, because even if he stayed in school those extra 2 or so years, what is he going to learn that will actually help him out in life? I felt the same way, except that because of the admissions process, I was basically forced to stay in school because I wasn’t in a situation where I could be homeschooled.

If he had a brain in his head you wouldn't have to explain yourself to that extent. He completely missed your first point. Good read for me though.
