    Im starting to think it would be pointless For Barnes

    to even go to college. I am usually 100% against players leaving early or skipping college altogether [from a bb perspective not academic] but its obvious he is just just toying with the other players in h.s. and even on the AAU circut and elite camps. I admit to being a little bit skeptical of all the hoopla, but lately there is no denying the obvious.

    At this point he can't go straight to the NBA. Not to mention he seems to like school.

    i know he cant go to nba even if he wanted to

    and education is very important to him and his mom. Also i should clarify i was never skeptical of his talent just got burned out and sick of all the Barnes threads so i started my own. Im basically just rambling and babbling because its June 1 and there is no college bb or fb for three freakin months.

    He could to a party school and have a good year before he declares. He can get his business degree later after he made his millions.

    Players don't have to go to college, they could just sit out for a year.

    If you take out the words, "I'm starting to think it would be" and "for Barnes," then this thread would be titled accurately.

    Couldn't he go overseas and play a year and then be able to enter into the NBA draft?

    Re: Im starting to think it would be pointless For Barnes

    Most likely will be in college for two years, minimum. Most NBA observers are predicting a one year lockout, following contract impasse, for 2011-12 year. I'd take that to mean no one-and-done players in the 2010 freshman class, unless they go to Europe.

    Re: Im starting to think it would be pointless For Barnes

    I was just daydreaming, thinking back to how I would feel, at the age of 17 and knowing that in two years I will be a multi-millionaire and I could go to college for one year, not even worrying about having to study, what to major in, or how to pull off an A and worrying about if my part-time job will be enough to pay for my education....., or if that chick who sits in front of me in Biology class wants to get drunk and bang me like a screen door in a hurricane.
