Take the time to assess your talent yourself, and then be willing to listen to others who can tell you what you have, and what you don’t have. Just deal with the reality of the situation, the statistics. If there are 350 basketball players, and 350 million in America, then you’re one in a million if you’re going to make it into the pro ranks. Now with the game becoming a world game as it is, there will be more professional teams, which will create more jobs. But proportionately speaking, if you start dealing with the world, with 3 billion people or more, the percentages becomes even less that you’ll make it. That’s just getting in the door, now that you will become a superstar, then it shrinks again.
