I know they have ulterior motives. I know the one and done rule was kind of a behind the scenes deal between NCAA and NBA, but their reasoning is sound. Having dudes come into the NBA at age 20 actually is better for basketball altogether. It's just what about the in between time? Dudes are still busting in the NBA even after one year of college. I think some people just can't make the jump for whatever reason. I don't think there's any way to stop people from being a bust, but I do think that people could take a step back before they shot into the NBA.
The whole way shit happens now from their childhood or early-teens until NBA is pretty wack. These dudes are not reaching their bball potential at all. Mainly because they don't have to, and that's because of the money they are worth, for sure. There's no way to stop them being worth that, and you can't really make them pause either if they know at age 12 they are gonna be a top pick in the NBA draft, or feel that way.
But you can't deny that while people are becoming better athletes and more capable individual players that dudes are, on average, playing below expectations and playing what we all know is bad ball. Maybe you can deny that, but I can't...
