You'll learn: * What kinds of skills it takes to play in the NBA * How players climb the ranks to reach the NBA * What daily life is like for an NBA player * The types of workouts and dietary plans NBA players use * How NBA players prevent and treat injuries Go behind the scenes and see what it's really like to be an NBA star!
