"From the playgrounds of America, to the shores of Europe and beyond, the dream to play basketball is alive and well."For many young players, the dreams of fame and fortune associated with the life of an NBA player can be all consuming. In "How to Make it to the NBA; a more realistic Approach," Brian Banks delivers what his title promises: an in-depth, how-to-look at the realities and rigors of pursuing a career in professional basketball. He makes public the truth that professional basketball is more that just a game - it's big business with a wide range of positions available on and off the court. This book presents career alternatives to those 99.99% who love the game that for whatever reason, may not make it to the courts. A career in the NBA doesn't always mean a career playing basketball on the courts. As many athletes have proven, it can also be a platform for ministry.You'll also find valuable lists and contacts that will help you make well-informed decisions about your life and career.
