Default 1 and done

Who do you see NOT leaving after 1 season in college? Wish the NBA made it 2yrs.

Just for the hell of it, top prospects that have the best chance of staying.

Kevin Love
Kyle Singler
Jerryd Bayless
Kosta Koufos
Blake Griffin
Andrew Ogilvy
JJ Hickson
Austin Daye

Cant see Bayless. The rest I can. Koufos the wildcard.

I have Hickson as my true wildcard...Deandre Jordan too, but I'm leaning towards 1 and done.

Bayless was borderline and with Jennings coming to play the point, that might help him decide enter the draft....I just don't have a read on his mentality so I don't know. He hasn't come off as a definite 1 and done though.

Like I said, I'm just a hippo who can't read minds.

I could see Bayless leave just because he has a great offensive game right now. He can hit from 3 and his jump shot looks sweet. You never know maybe he would want to play with a guy like Jennings at the point and him at the SG, would be a great backcourt.

I would really like it if college players would stay for 3-4 year, but I think a two-year rule would be more reasonable. Every year from now on, they top tier of prospects will be your Durants and Mayos, and then the Juniors and Seniors will fill out the late lottery and end of the 1st round. Kids need to stay in school, master all of the fundamentals and get prepared for the next level, not leave after one year (unless their family is financially unstable).

I think two years would be better as well. But I don't necessarily know that one-and-dones are always going to dominate the draft. Over half the lottery was non-freshmen last year: two seniors, four juniors, a sophomore and an international. Granted, this year's lottery looks to be freshman-heavy, but then again, maybe a few guys like Blake Griffin, Bayless, and Donte Greene come back for at least another year.

And the 2009 draft doesn't appear as if it will be freshman-heavy.
