    Duke point guard one and done

    This is what i hate about one and done. Irving was a special player and i would have liked to see him more. The NBA and NCAA need to get together and figure out a different scenario for young players coming in. Doesn't MLB say that you have to be a junior to enter the draft. To many young players have to many other people having an agenda to get them to make the $$$$ and it hurts not only them but also the NCAA. anybody else have feelings about this

    Re: Duke point guard one and done

    It seems to me that the NBA is going the complete opposite direction with the creation of the developmental league.

    I'd prefer to see 2 or 3 years, or a minimum age, but I don't think it's going to happen.

    MLB can also draft kids out of HS.

    Re: Duke point guard one and done

    I think they need to change it to where you have to be a JR to go to the draft..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I believe it is you can enter the draft right out of high school but if you decide to go to college, you have to go for 3 years. I think this would be a great model for basketball.

    I'd be cool with that.

    The NBA and NCAA need to reach an agreement that somewhat mirrors MLB. Give HS kids a choice of going D-League for one year or playing college ball for 3 years before becoming draft eligible. The NBA doesn't want to scout HS kids nor have them go straight to the NBA and the one-and-done is bad for the NCAA. This solution works for both parties.

    The NBA is not going to go back to allowing kids to come right out of high school. They get a years worth of free promotion from the NCAA now. The NBA doesn't care, how the NCAA feels about this, this is soley about protecting their product. There is going to be a push to change the rules so that you have to be two years removed from your high school graduating class to enter the draft during the CBA negotiations this summer, but you won't see the NBA adopt the MLB rule.

    Re: Duke point guard one and done

    Basketball adopting the MLB 3 year college stay is probably never going to happen. Most baseball teams have 5-6 minor league teams for their players - easily 150-200 minor leagers for each team.

    If the NBA adopts this rule, 100 or so basketball players could opt not to go to college (baseball has many more than that). Assuming they play 4-6 years of minor league ball, where are all the teams for them to play on.

    What? I agree that the NBA is never going to adopt that rule but it's certainly not for the reason you listed. Why would 100 players opt not to college? There would only be a handful, at most, each year declare for the draft right out of high school.

    Quick trivia: What three Duke players were the first to leave for the NBA before their senior season?

    I do know Brand hates Duke now, they basically treated him as an outcast. Saying he wasn't doing it the "Duke" way. He got a lot of hate mail.

    Re: Duke point guard one and done

    I may be the bad guy here but I honestly don't blame the kid. I have seen several mock drafts where he is either the #1 or #2 pick in the lottery. That's a lot of dough. I know it may be naive to think he will but he can always finish college later on but the opportunity to make that money may not always be there. He has to make the best business decision for himself and his family.

    Now with what seems to be an NBA lockout looming, I can't say I would do the same thing with all the potential uncertainty out there but if he wants to take off for the paycheck then more power to him.
