Default Re: Syracuse PG Tyler Ennis declares for the 2014 NBA Draft.

The NBA and NFL are two very different leagues as well, with highly different levels of contact, so the age restriction for the NFL is warranted, as people don't want to see young kids getting destroyed by grown men.

The NHL, and MLB both allow 18 year olds to enter, so there is precedence for keeping the age at 18 also. And as a matter of fact, most teams in those leagues prefer to get 18 year olds into their systems, so that they can develop them better.
