This podcast is our analytical look at the game of professional basketball and it’s so called height requirements. The game is changing and those who are aware of the change can focus on building skills for the New NBA!
So many coaches and trainers talk about how you have to be 6’5 or 7’0 feet tall to play professional basketball. So many people think that just because they are 7 feet tall they are guaranteed to make it to the next level, but the game has changed. According to our podcast with John Lucas the numbers are in and the number crunchers for the league have determined that the shots that win ball gamers are threes and lay ups.
That means that anyone that can get down the floor and hit threes can have a job in the league. That takes height out of the equation and moves the focus towards skill. So instead of worrying about how tall you are you should be focusing on your skill.

“There I was with this kid who wanted to follow his dream of playing pro basketball and, as a non-basketball parent, I had no idea how to make it happen. When I asked others, I constantly heard things like – ‘You just have to be good and people will find you.’ I knew that waiting for the phone to ring couldn’t be the key to success. So I started digging and I found out that, like every career, there is an actual path that you MUST take to even have a chance. I am excited to share my findings with you. Let’s work together to make this happen for our little and not-so-little ballers!” – Troy Horne See you inside episode 27! Troy and Moses Horne hoopchalk.com
