Muggsy Bogues was 5’3”, Spud Webb was 5’6” and Yao Ming was 7’7”.... all of which played in the NBA. Ming was a flop... the other two succeeded because they had the want to and talent (size didn’t play a factor) NAIA to D1 “talent” does not matter when it comes to competing at the next level... if you’re good enough to play, my hats off to you. People get so hung up on small D1 vs “name brand” powerhouse D1 schools. Ever think these kids just wanna get rewarded for their hard work and get their education payed for and do what they love for a few more years? It’s like you’re talking bad about a kid because he/she didn’t play big time D1 vs a school perceived to be the same talent wise as NAIA. Is a 2A State title any less than a 7A title?! No... it’s a state title. Go put in the work that these kids put in. I bet any kid that goes to college (and gets it paid for) is very satisfied and proud. They should be

Congrats to your nephew Pick

Thanks Bildo, he now has a master's degree, and owes not a dime for his schooling. Not to mention basketball took him all over the USA. Also played professionally in Mexico.

CTucker... that is your problem. I was talking about kids working hard and getting something for it. It had absolutely nothing to do with you. You are a homer and know nothing about basketball or players outside your own town. Did you ever play anything? Just curious...

Btw.... do you actually think that I care what you think of me? Grow up

very quality post.  Who really cares if it’s naia or high D1.  Successful people will be successful no matter where they are due to the character, talent, and support system they have. So many kids would enjoy playing college ball so much more if they weren’t so concerned about being at a particular level. It’s a little different if we have nba draft pick ratings, but that rules out 99.9% of us.  Go to college to get a 4 year degree and make your future children’s lives better for it, and if you can do it while having fun playing ball, more power to you

Yao wasn’t my favorite center, but he came into the league probably past his prime and injury cut his time in nba short

He's not even in my top 25 big men ever....but not a flop.
Jabbar
Russell
Duncan
Wilt
Shaq
Hakeem
Robinson
McHale
Ewing
Parrish
....

So many were his equal or better.  But not a flop.   

But I'm enjoying the discussion about talent, hard work, coaching, player development, etc.

I love anytime I get to listen to Kenny’s admire and Charles Barkley talk hoops during halftime.  Most of the time, they make a ton of sense w/o trying to bedazzle or over-praise a team.  Loved their analysis of the 1st half of the Michigan state and Bucknell game. 
Both guys talked about how important it is to maintain a good structure in your offense and a good shot selection, despite playing an uptempo philosophy.
I’m sick and tired of folks who don’t know a dang thing about this game offer excuses for poor shot selection, and percentages.
Developing player skills, and a system that can offer your kids the best shot selection is the only way to improve your offensive approach to this game.

Same could be said for defense. Sure we would all love to be able to press folks into submission. But if you cannot teach kids to get stops in a one on one half court environment, or how to help and help the helper, and finish each trip off with a physical box out and rebound, your just contributing to another generation of kids expecting some gimmick snake oil cure

Yea like the team that busted Virginas bubble last night. Good post moves do not require you to be big. 6'7 with a 37" vertical gets you fairly close to the rim I think. Being versatile makes you more valuable.
Malik can definitely jump out the gym.  I can't tell you how many times we've seen him jump over players to the rim.

I completely agree with your take.  Preach it to my kids/athletes all the time.   Talent + work + desire +  fundamentals/coaching = success.  I'm a believer.   Just made one tiny correction to your analogy.
