54 centimeters...not inches..that was in 9th grade, our school doesn't seem to measure our verticals anymore.

My name is Nick and I average 28 points a game with 7.8 assists I am 15 years old playing for my varsity team I am 5'11 PG/SG with dunking abilities my perimeter shot is my strength but my athleticism is a killer to defense. I also average 3 steals a game and usually convert them on the offensive end. I am a team player and hope to make it to the nba one day.

i have nice handles i can use both my left and right hand i am short but i play aggresive i get into the paint with ease, and most of the time i can finish but when i cant i get fouled and i make my free throws 9/10. I have a mid range jump shot kinda of like kobe and i also have a solid three point shot and defensively i am solid i can get a few steals a game and i force a lot of pick ups and turnovers however i do get frustrated when i have a string of bad plays in a row but i can usually get back into the game quickly. i average about 8 points a game with 9 assist and about 2 steals and when i get on a roll i can score about 20 points with 11 assist do you think i am good enough to be successful when I play college basketball and do you think i will be good enough to make it into the NBA one day ?

I'm 18 years old and im from Limpopo South Africa. I love basketball with all my heart and as far as I can remember I've been playing the game my whole life. During my growth I realized that this is actually what I wanna do my whole life and that's when I decided that I wanna play in the NBA. My passion was fired up when I saw the Lebron documentary. I look up to Lebron James game but since I can't dunk I look up to someone who does what I do in the court and that's dribbling (ankle breaking) and shooting,someone like Kyrie Irving. I'm the captain of my home team. My parents think im wasting my time with this game and i don't have a future with it,i want to prove them wrong. Please help me reach the NBA.

Guys the whole world is littered with good streetballers who want to play etc but go nowhere. My best friend played 4 yrs hs 33 ppg avg with 11 rebs and 10 assists a game and is a bus driver now.

To get into the nba;

Play hard, join. join a team in an accredited leagu. Listen to the coaches (be coachable). Then accept your lot in life. 1/20 makes a high school team. 1/100 makes an ncaa team. Only about 300 of those guys get drafted. Out of those who get drafted only 1/3 of those make the team. So you see your chances even in the best circumstances are literally one in a million. Plan for something more certain.
