you don't go to school to be a basketball player
What do you mean by this question? If a college player enters the NBA Draft he can go back to college instead of the draft if he DOES NOT hire an agent. If a college players declares for the draft AND hires an agent he is in no matter what.
NBA players dont have to ( like kobe)

THE PROSPECTS FOR A FUTURE IM NOT REALLY SURE I THINK THAT YOU WILL NEED TO TRY TO GET INTO THE BASKETBALL PRO'S AND MAYBE GO TO BASKETBALL COLLEGE?
Technically, if you play basketball at any point you are a basketball player. Since you can play in a driveway or a local court, a college education is not required. If you meant professionally, the answer is no. Your ability to perform well in academia has nothing to do with your ability to play ball. Kobe Bryant is the best example I can think of for an NBA player that didn't go to college.
You just need to go to college at least one year
You don't have to go to College

You do not have to go to college at all in order to become a NBA player. Most players are picked from college teams though.
Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Lebron James are of recent memory.
Well up until a few years ago you didn't have to go to college to get drafted but for multiple reasons now you do. the NBA and many scouts encourages young up and comer athletes to go to college and get colelge experience before playing in the NBA. So the Answer is yes, you do have to go to college and depending on how old you are you may only have to go for one year. Also to even become a pro ball player you must work hard and hone your skills on a daily basis, pray a lot, and hit the weights.

No. The only NBA rule involving going to college is that you must go to college for at least 1 year to be eligible for the NBA draft.
You would not be in the NBA if you did not go to college.Update from Asker: Players such as Lebron James, Brandon Jennings, etc...
There are no educational requirements in order to be a basketball player. As of the latest rule, players are required to go to college for one year before entering the NBA, but the courses they study do not depend upon going into the NBA or not.
