Um....sorry, one of the first things anybody would notice about you would be your command of the english language, ie spelling, syntax, things like that.

Besides that, previous commentators have pointed out that you need t excell in an organized league, not just street balling.

Show ability to learn and be coached. Play in an organized league and do well in school. Do that and the NBA will find you.

All you guys who said that your avarege per game is about 20pts or more thats because you guys didnt had a goos defender! Im 5.5' ive played in spain rumania and now in canada (im only 17) and i can garante uf im your defender you wont score more them 8/10 points a game. I play PG very good shooting even with pressure on, i avrage 15 asiats per game and almost 3 steals. I have a great vision of game i make everybody from my team better. You cant stop me but i can stop you!

Try to play some pickup one on one against ex nba players, then see what they think of you chances.

Best advice is to move to the US and play AAU, then high school ball, if you are even remotely close to good enough for pro ball then you will be offered a college scholarship. From there you interview and/or work out for a team and you hope to be drafted. Or you can join the NBDL (NBA minor league and hope to be brought up) You could also be noticed by playing well in the Olympics or FIBA play for your country

I live in England and have been playin basketball for about 8 months now and I've really progressed. Ive been scouted to my city team. I'm 16 going on 17 and I'm about 6.2 200lbs. I play pf or centre because of my size, my dad is 6ft and my mum is ridiculously small so do you think I'll grow any bigger. I doubt I have a chance in the nba but in England I have a really good chance, a chance for the 2016 olympics

Even though you are big for normal people standard, you will be prototypical NBA point guard size. I suggest you develop your ball handling, speed, passing ability, defense against other 1 and 2 guards. Also work on your jump shot. Your size will be a great asset now but if you play at a college or pro level you will be one of the smallest guys out there. So don't neglect your point guard/shooting guard skills.
