Default Report: Myck Kabongo to SUSPENDED for the ENITRE NCAA season

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaab--...035535906.html

wow.

I'm from Toronto, I've played with his cousins and seen Myck himself play many times in person. he's a great talent and will make a solid pg in the NBA.

all i gotta say is he should have surrounded himself with better people to prevent this from happening, but i cant believe the agent's in these situations walk away unscathed.

no $$$ were even exchanged. the workout itself is being considered a impermissible benefit. The by-laws are so vague, next thing you know you're gonna have bans for players getting a ride to practice.

it's time to pay these players. Myck is a talent that is going to be sorely missed from this season's college schedule, they are only hurting themselves with this decision

thoughts?

at the NCAA's dumb ass rules. I've read that athletes are not even allowed to get work experience during the summer. Not 100% sure that that's the case, though.

But after what most considered an ordinary freshman season and becoming ineligible as a sophomore, Kabongo's chances to getting drafted in the first round are improbable

Can he not come back next year?

Can he not come back next year?

he wont. his draft stock has as big a range as anyone. he is probably one of the quickest, if not the quickest, pg prospects in this years draft, he just doesnt know how to run a team yet. his final draft stock will be decided during the workout phase of the draft, he might go overseas and play until then, that would get him good playing experience and a chance to run a pro team

the final verdict is not in yet so we wont know if he can return next year. if he cannot that would make more sense than allowing him to come back. by accepting benefits the suspension in essence is suppose to punish him for foregoing his amateur status. if they let him play again, what exactly are they punishing him for then???

This is total BS. NCAA needs to have some sort of leniency in this type of case, especially if no money was ever exchanged.

Assuming he declares, this is really going to hurt his draft stock. I'm guessing he'll go in the second round.

No $$$ was exchanged except for that which will now not go into Kabongo's bank account. He was projected to go around 20th overall in this draft, now he has dropped to mid-second round. That is a serious loss of $$$.

Good thing the NCAA always does right by their student athletes.

F*cking joke.
