If the NBA still had 7 rounds people would be taking flyers on Juco guys or streetball players in Round 5.
Yeah, but in baseball there are a ton (190 in the U.S. and 50 in other countries to be exact) of minor league teams affiliated with one of the 30 MLB clubs. That's 270 teams (including the 30 MLB teams) with 25 man rosters and you're looking at over 6,750 players affiliated with an MLB club during any given season. You have to have a ton of rounds in an MLB draft.
I'd love to see a 5-7 round NBA Draft now, though, just to see the foreigners, streetballers, unheard of college players, etc. that teams take a flyer on.
Holy mother of god, 52 rounds of drafting players.......that seriously is mindblowing....jesus christ.... what is that 1500 players?? how long does that draft take to be finished?
Wtf happens to all the players ?
I mean I know a kid who got drafted in the 40th round about 4 years ago. He hadnt played baseball in 3 years, and he stopped playing because he hated it. He was an All-State player when he did and could've gone to Seton Hall. Scouts look up each states HS All-State players in the past 4 years and just scroll through the names and take guys, even if they didnt play baseball after high school.
