well im 14 my height last time i measured was 5.7 -5.9 with shoes on man I really want to make my high school team but since im so short i dont think i could make it and it would be hard to get noticed since my high school is the most populated in the state of florida and AAU i think i could probably make it but everybody in the team that i want to get in all tell me how much i suck and how i will never make it in but they all started playing when they were young and I just started playing about 6 months ago and i could tell you for me starting 6 months ago im pretty good but i dont thing ill even make it in my high school team and I want it so but all these people bring me down... it sucks like my determination is stronger than their doubt but it just sometimes gets to me. so its 14 too late and my how tall am I an issue and can i do something to make me grow taller because beleive me I WANT TO MAKE IT TO THE TOP
Of course not! I'm also 14 and only got serious with basketball in the beginning of the school year! I've gotten a whole lot better and still improving! As long as your determination is stronger than the hate I'm sure you can make your school team. Just stay focused and polish your skills. Prove them wrong
It's never too late to start. Amar'e Stoudimire started playing at 14 too. Through his determination, he eventually went on to having a successful career.
its not too late. just dont believe wat other people tell u about how ur not good or anything like that, only u can decide if u can make the school team. just put ur mind on that thought and use that as ur motivation and remember
Look man, this is a cliche, but you can do anything in life.
If you truly want to make the NBA then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can really help, but only email me if yo know your going to put in the work.
If you are not, then never email me.
Its going to be hard, but think about it and reply soon
Dont worry im in the exact same situation im 14 and i started playing roughly a year ago. Then again i have height on my side at 6'3". However i started in the post and worked to eventually play a SG and SF. Let the people hate, they just want to put you down. Just put your nose to the grindstone and work to prove every single one of them wrong. I've been doing the same, im starting to get respect and you just need to keep going.
its never too late becuase i have a friend who started at fourteen and he plays jv and varsity as a sophmore- god is good
