Broken Hoop Dreams

This is a good article on some prep basketball stars who never made it to the NBA. This isn’t a new story, but it’s important for everyone to remember that things don’t always work out. The rankings aren’t perfect (mea culpa – I’ve been ragging on Pete Gillen for taking unranked players) and the future isn’t guaranteed to even the brightest of prep stars.
A article or two like this plus a showing of Hoop Dreams should be required reading and viewing for all high school basketball players. Unfortunately, many of the top players don’t understand math enough for those percentages (.03 percent of high school seniors make it to the NBA) to hold much weight.
It’s sad to see guys throw away such a golden opportunity to better themselves.
