Sup evrybody can smoking affect your game THAT bad? Im in 8th grade and i think i should start but im not sure because i wanna be an awesome ball player. Cuz all the freshman smoke everyday and there still awesome bballers
Of course you shouldn't smoke! That's a no-brainer, don't try to imitate those who don't know what's better for them.
Smokers are not 'cool'. If anything, they're stupid for deliberately inhaling all that poison and then try to negotiate with cancer and lung diseases.
Your stupid for pondering the thought. But your in the 8th grade so it's fine.
In highschool, you will be packed with sluts, huge sluts, all you need to do is drink some to get *****, and be good looking.
Don't go thinking that smoking will make you cool and it won't make you any worse, because that's wrong. You don't need weed to be cool, just drink, and thats in moderation, and you will not be able to run at all in highschool, that's where the hard stuff starts.
Those professionals and college players are in amazing shape, one of the best in their lives, they can afford to puff once or twice, you can't though.
One of my cross country running friends had a full ride scholarship to BYU with a 4:21 mile time and a 16:03 5k time... He started smoking and he lost all of his wind. He went up to 5:30 and 19:30 respectively and lost his scholarship (although, granted, it may of just been becuase they found out he was smoking some weed and BYU doesnt look too kindly on that...)
so, moral of the story is, NO S**T SHERLOCK, smoking isnt going to help you on the court. beer though...
