    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.

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

    This exactly. I think that Baseball has that portion of it right. (we can leave out the Junior college part though)

    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.

    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.

    Yeah, no way they require a degree.

    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.

    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.

    2 years seems right. Whether coming from HS or a Junior College, you should have at least 2 years in a program - that would align the two, somewhat.

    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.

    Never said it isn't better for them to have to play a year in college...just saying it should be left up to the individual and let them make their own choice. There are examples on both sides of this argument were college would have been good for some and not needed for others.
