Re: nba players (ex. josh childress) going back to school: wise or a waste of time?
most NBA players don't last more than 5 years. after that then what you are going to do??
you only get a huge pension if you last a long time in this league. if you didn't play through a few contracts, you better find a profession quick.
Childress is smart to be going back. An NBA player still has about 30 more working years after his career is over. there's tons of players from the 80s/90s that are dead broke right now.
In all of my years i've found that
A) higher education isn't vital to being successful but it gives you a huge advantage.
B) most of the people who look down on getting a bachelors or a masters more than likely don't have either one of those degrees. ;)
