Nah, basketball has about the highest injury rate of any youth sport. Rowing's a lifetime-sport that's much easier on your body and you'll thank your younger self when you're 70+ and still able to get out on the water :)
:lol: :lol: :lol: Where did you get that from?

What money is there in rowing as a professional sport? Is there even any? Even low even basketball pros can earn good money and travel the world.

basketball is shocking for knee injuries. my daughter played at close to national level from age 13 to 18 and the amount of girls sidelined because of knee injury was dreadful. most of the girls at that level had some sort of knee injury and some had to give up the sport due to destroyed knees. one girl in my daughters team did both her knees and was rejected from the services because of it. she was off for nearly 2 years trying to recover
