    Should BBall players have to wait a year to enter the NBA draft?

    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...st-three-years

    Shaq thinks they should have to play college ball 3 years before entering the draft just like in football. I tend to agree for a variety of reasons.

    discuss.

    I say kids should be allowed to go straight from HS to the NBA, but if they go to college they be required to stay for 3 years before making the jump.

    Players should be able to go straight from HS to the NBA if they want, but if they choose to play in college, they should be forced to stay for at least 2 years.

    I dont know what is best, but the 1 and done is not the way to go. I see no reason to MAKE kids go to college first, but I agree that if they do, they should be required to stay for a few years, especially if they are getting a full ride. Maybe do something along the lines of if you are on scholarship, you need to get a degree before you go to the NBA. If you want to go to college for a few years and then jump ship, pay your own way.

    If they didn't have to Kentucky wouldn't have a basketball team.

    It will never go back to kids being allowed to go right from high school, the NBA already has won that battle they don't want to reverse course on that and give up a year of free marketing. I do think the NBA will push the union for a 2 year removed rule in the next CBA.

    Reduces scouting costs, provides the NBA with well known players due to a year of free marketing from the NCAA. There's plenty of reasons why the NBA doesn't want high schoolers coming straight into the league.

    2 years seems more appropriate. 1 year is too short for development reasons and is inconvenient for colleges/coaches. 3 years, like in football, is a bit too long.

    This way the LeBron and Garnets could go pro, but marginal players would think twice.

    I think it is a crock that they 'make' a guy wait a year before they go to the NBA. I should ultimately be left the individual but that's not what is best for the NCAA nor the NBA so I doubt we see that again.

    The NBA draft has turned into a joke after about the 15th pick. Might as well let HS players be eligible rather than drafting a player from overseas that can't come to the NBA for a few years anyway.

    Yeah, protecting their product, what a crock!

    1 and Done's make it so there will only be records broken on occasion in the NCAA while in the NBA records are being broken all the time. (See Kobe 30K, Nash 10K ast, LeBron 20K)

    it is ruining college basketball and making it hard on NBA teams. Players are not physically or mentally ready. (See Royce White)

    It's actually making it much easier on NBA teams, they no longer have to waste time scouting high schoolers, plus they have at least a year to evaluate players against better competition that's no in an AAU setting, this is very valuable, especially for scouting big men.

    Royce White was three years removed from high school, he would not be affected by changing the rule to 2 or 3 years out, he would have still been eligible.

    NBA was much worse off when teams reached for HS players and they completely bombed.
