And usually, i do all of that + the 5 days a week that i play basketball 5v5 full court for 7-8 games a day (roughly 2 hours worth)

Just to let you know, leg press is not a good indicator of true leg strength. While you can put up that sort of weight on leg press, it doesn't really translate back to your squat all that well. I was putting up 500+ on leg press when I still did the exercise and was still struggling with 225lbs on squats. If you ask me, a 315 squat is way more impressive and a good indicator that your body and your legs know how to work together better.
