My Love For Basketball.

I have so much passion for the game,man. I started playing at 5 years old,but my dad didn't want to at first. I started doing swimming pool, I failed at it. My dad didn't want me to continue. I started soccer, I did so so won a championship at 9 years old, my dad gave up. I started basketball again at 9 years old, I was in the team 2 straight times in 4th and 5th grade. Then I started losing interest in it, I was playing video games a lot and I started to abandon basketball. I got cut from the team in 6th grade, I was dissapointed, it may seem crazy, but I cried. I didn't know why. I didn't way to play rec and started playing football. People started saying I was the best QB in middle school. Then in 7th grade, everything changed I made the basketball team and I was cut as being the QB. My parents didn't want to play football, they said it was too dangerous.In 7th grade, I had a so so season, the most points I scored was only 8 points, I was a bencher. Then in 8th grade, I was cut, I had no hope at all, gave up again, played a little bit with my brother. Then I arrived in 9th grade and I got cut again. The whole sky fell on me, I felt dissapointed, I started to put myself down hard, I had no hope, my dream was to make the NBA someday. Now it's the summer, I'm playing in a summer camp, I,'m working on my game. But I'm still very underrated and I'm the underdog. I play a lot, people say I don't know how to shoot and that I won't make the team in 10th grade. I need some hope, I hope to make the NBA someday.

im not sure but you have probly heard this before but you really just need to keep trying, start off by setting goals for yourself then go on from there. Ive been playing a while too and ive learned it is 50% mental game as physical
