Didn’t play much in high school…
little college experience…
No help / no one believes in me…

I see the following phrase often: My story / background is similar to yours.

It’s not just once in a blue moon that I hear this. Around 60% of the emails I get from basketball players say this — my story is like yours — in some form.
