Re: Draft Age Minimum
College will help mature the player and even if they don't get paid for that year, everything they need is paid for by the college. Dont worry, the money they earn from the rookie contract is more than most of us will make in our entire lives. Plus, the college game needs some of those stars to cheer for/against.
Does anyone have a rough estimate of the ratio of sraight-from-HS players that busted VS those that actually became stars in the league?
I think the less academically-inclined players who want to pass on the college game will emulate what Jennings did. It still helps them mature as people and players and is a legit alternative to develop better players for the NBA.
