I'm 16 years old turning 17 in a few months and have recently found a passion in basketball. I live in Australia and am currently in year 12 finishing my last year of high school. I have never played competitively before but I love watching basketball and playing for fun at the local court, and I really want to start taking it up seriously. Right now I'm about 6'3 tall, weight about 185 lbs and have a strong physique, so physically I feel good, but what I really want to know is, am I too late achieve NBA status? Living in Australia, having really no experience of playing and stating at the age of 16 are all things that make me think this isn't possible, no matter how much work I put in. Regardless of this though I am fully motivated and determined to make it into the NBA, I just want to know if it is possible and if so, how? What do I have to next? What process/plan must I take?
