Basketball Or Law School

After stopping a period of 7 years of focus on basketball, this year has been very hard for me.. I received two scholarships at two prep schools in 2008 and 2009 (kind of out of the blue). During my time in school the past 3-4 years I have changed schools 5 times... HoweverI have always been an excellent student.. I have about a 5,6 GPA on a 1-6 scale and I am very talented in the social sciences.. However, everyone tells me I should continue playing basketball.. I amĀ  6'10, 235 and pretty athletic and skilled as a player... I don't know if I should play basketball for fun in Europe, as I basically have not experienced much fun during my youth as I was very focused, I am also interested in continuing on at a university in Europe to get a law degree.. I turn 20 soon, and I don't want to wander around worrying about the two paths.. I am very goal oriented and talented, and I don't want to switch back and forth between the two anymore.....

Please help me, it's starting to bother me...

If you are not enjoying Basketball you shouldn't play it. Law School is tuff as well though which I can tell you first hand actually as my applications go out next week. If you do make it through Law School you could practice law into your 80's. How long can you play ball? maybe 40's? Law School would be the better investment.
