Well first off, new rule for the NBA is that you have to have at least one year of college education before going to the NBA. Second pretty self-explanatory: practice, the NBA dose not just let anyone get drafted. Some players don't make it to the NBA drafted, instead they may get put into the NBA Development League, the NBA D-League is a league where players that has potential, but need a little more work. Some make it out of the D-League like NBA player Jamario Moon. Bottom line it takes dedication and hard work to become a Basketball player, and won't happen over night.
