There are many, many steps. First, you have to be at least 19 years old or have played one year in college- that is the NBA rule. Second, you have to have talent that is recognized by NBA scouts or someone that works for the NBA. The best way is to have played on a high school team and dominated.… You will get local scholarships from local colleges (or great basketball colleges if you are that good) and will need to be in a Division I college (most that offer scholarships are). You will then need to dominate or do very well in college in order to enter the NBA draft and be drafted in one of the 60 spots. Then, only the, you can play in the NBA. (MORE)

Such odds are impossible to calculate. There are to many variables and unknowns. In any case the odds are against you. In many cases probabilities can be calculated when enough information is available. In such cases they are not. Some things to consider are; How good are you? Are you goi…ng to be seen by a scout when playing well? Are you consistent? Some players are very good but have not had that stroke of luck we all need to achieve professional status. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ While we cannot calculate what it takes for a specific player to make it to the NBA, we can calculate the probability of someone becoming a NBA player. The probability is calculated by the number of specified players in the NBA (30 teams X 12 man roster = 360 available positions- of which some 35% (126)are non replaceable in any season- divide the number who may be replaced (234) by the number of players qualified candidates being considered. If we identify the richest pool of qualified players i.e. from the 300 NCAA Division I Schools, a few from Division II and III, European players in the FIBA league, and US based High School Players in waiting. We'll have a probability of someone making it to the NBA. I calculate this number at around 234/1882=1.2% probability of someone making it to the NBA when chosen from the reference pool. (MORE)
