If you want to join the NBA then the chance is almost zero, especially if you're from outside the USA (in the USA you got the best upportunity's to get somewhere in basketball by far). The chance of winning the lottery is bigger, there have been about 5 succefull people in the NBA in the entire history of the league (like earl boykins or mugsy bogues). So better take it as a no for the NBA. But you can play of course, the things earl boykins and mugsy bogues did was, shoot the ball 1000x everyday starting from as early an age as you can. Be gifted with great athleticism (earl boykins and mugsy bogues probably had 50 inch verts) and it would also help knowing that you have a basketball IQ at all
Eerly Boykins would be the shortest at 5"5. Yao Ming is the tallest at 7"6. Mugsy Bogues was the shortest in NBA history at 5"3, while Manute Bol and Gheorge Muresean would be the tallest at 7"7 (Mugsy Bogues and Manute Bol did play on the same team at one stage in Atlanta).
