    Mark Cuban on 1 and dones

    I know some may not like Cuban's arrogance or how he carries himself but I love him. He is a fan who made enough money to buy a team and he did it. Not only that but he forms his own ideas, publicly states them and doesn't care what Stern or anyone else says no matter the topic. That's not to mention he has some business sense.

    Re: Mark Cuban on 1 and dones

    I just disagree. It's not the kid's fault. It's completely the NBA teams' fault. If you will pay me several million dollars to do a job i'm not capable of doing, I'll certainly still accept your offer. How about the NBA teams become much more selective and not force "rules" on these kids. I know I was allowed to leave college and take any lucrative job offer I wanted. Regardless of scholarships.

    He's just mad that the one and done rule means that he has to draft and pay guys who are still big question marks. Forcing kids to stay three years would help NBA owners weed out guys who would otherwise be busts.

    People seem to think that the NBA adding requirements takes away some kind of right from players. It doesn't. I think they would get more mature players who have proven themselves against good competition. Not to mention that some of those who don't stick would have (under his plan) another year or so of college to finish and enter the regular world.

    I think making a high school kid go to any amount of college is dumb. If they want to go, let them go.

    Let them go if they want to go right away. But if they want to go to school, make them stay 3 years.

    That's fine with me but I think we'd have to settle for 2 years. I don't see the NBAPA going along with 3 years.

    The problem w/ the MLB argument is, MLB has minor leagues and can develop players. The D-league is not anything close to the minor leagues. MLB farm systems are owned by the major league teams, it is in their interest to develop those young players. The D-league has player w/ contracts from various franchises on one team and some free agents, its organized pick-up ball, everyone for themselves.

    I don't get this argument at all. Who is making them go to college? The D-League takes high schoolers now, plus they can always play overseas. There are plenty of options for players who don't want to go to college.

    The NBA will never go back to letting guys go in right out of high school. The one and done rule has worked great for them, two years would be even better for them, but they won't go back to letting high schoolers enter the league.

    Why shouldn't they be able to go straight to the NBA?

    Because it's not in the league's best interest.

    Having guys in the league like LeBron and Kobe isn't in the league's best interest? I don't see how them not being able to go into the league straight out of high school is beneficial to either party.

    Because it weeds out guys who would otherwise be very expensive busts. The longer a kid is in college the more accurate a read the pro teams can get on his skills and talent. I'm sure they'd love it even more if guys had to play the full four years before going pro.
