: 1) Play at a HS where you are the #1 or #2 option. Be a STARTER for 4 years and be a leader by Jr. year. Put up career #'s and show improvement ever year. (Frosh 10pts a game by SR. year putting up 20-25points a game). Yeah its great to play for OPEN teams but if you are 8th-12th on the bench CHEERLEADING who cares that you won a CIF didn't really contribute.

: 2) Play for a club that does exposure tourneys and make sure you are in the starting rotation. Do NOT be a "Pay for the OTHERS" player who is there just to support the upper tier. Find a system and coach that plays TEAM ball. Not the pressure/trap/ drive to the basket recklessly - chuck 3's coach that only knows fast break and defensive pressure.

: 3) Put in the TIME in the classroom and on the court. You don't need trainers, shooting coaches, nutritionists, strength comes down to YOU!!! Your internal desire to improve and YOUR passion for the game. You either want it or you don't. Keep your grades up 3.5 or >gpa

: 4) DO NOT PLAY YEAR AROUND - Injuries and burnout will kill your soul........have time for family and friends.

Great post! Genius is right except for part of the last point. Play year round. Most top athletes don't take weeks or months off. But don't burnout either. If you need a day or a week off then take it. But stay active. Injuries happen when people get out of shape. And always always always have fun and spend time with friends and family.
