A lot of us tend to take sport season seriously, regardless of whether it is Super Bowl, Major League Baseball or the NBA, we know that there are thousands of viewers watching the game nationwide. We also know beloved players and athletes like Michael Jordan and many others who have completely changed the game for us by setting records and gong down in history as legends. If you happen to have an inclination towards basketball and are considering going pro, then there are some things you need to remember before you go through with your decision.
Going pro means that you are signing up to years of enduring pain, training, grueling practice, spending hours and late nights and barely getting any sleep. A lot of players end up going through years of practice as amateurs, completely giving it their all before they get drafted and sometimes it isn’t the team they want to get drafted for. Then there are also players who end up spending their best years as amateurs without getting drafted and have then wasted their time. You need to go into this knowing that there might be a possibility you might fall in either of these groups because there are a lot of talented players that will be competing with you.
Going pro means that till you are drafted, you will not be making a lot of money, and it will be difficult to make ends meet during the entire time, so you need to remember that it can take a lot of time before you might make it big. Lastly, a lot of basketball players end up with serious injuries, especially injuries to their legs and tendons that can not only put an early end to their career, but can also affect them for life.
