These players are people with real life problems and families...the reasons for them going to college or going pro are varied. It's not my business, the NBA's, or the NCAA's business to tell them what to do with their lives.

No one made Sidney Crosby go to college before playing pro ball...no one tells MLB to let those Cubans and Dominicans to go to college before they sign them to pro contracts.

Why should basketball players get treated any different?

Oh yeah, because they sell more shoes and jerseys and products than other sports....and the NCAA wants to pimp them.

Very well said man.
