Basketball on the Edge – What are Your Odds of Making it to the NBA? by Courtney Campbell

What are your young player’s odds of making it to the NBA or even playing college basketball? Let’s just say they are not very good.

Instead, we need to focus on making their basketball experience a positive one that will help them in all areas of their life as they grow up. Keep these odds in mind, think about why kids play sports, and then ask yourself about your motivations and goals when it comes to your child’s basketball career.
