Re: nba players (ex. josh childress) going back to school: wise or a waste of time?
I don't see NBA players going to school to be a waste of time if that's what they want to do. If going to school during the offseason is a waste of time, what about going on vacations or partying? That's not necessarily beneficial to a player's NBA career yet nobody calls it a waste of time because it's implied that the player enoys partying or going on vacation.
Maybe Childress enjoys learning about certain things. Education isn't always about money. Or maybe it's a pride thing, alot of players get stereotyped into dumb atheletes and want to break the image. Either way, it's his life and he can live it however he sees fit.
