    How could anyone possibly stop them? They are going to a different country.

    Why stop it? Why would you want to?

    Stop it for what reason? To unconstitutionally stop someone from earning a living?

    I'm glad to see kids like that go overseas. I think one and done players are ruining college basketball.

    Best of luck to him. I agree, it's better than one and done.

    That is great. None and done. They are too good to play college. Maybe HB might do the same. He could get a business degree online from Phoenix U.

    Ruins it for me. No concept of team, no continuity.

    I'd say, at least for a number of those cases, it's probably more like they're not smart enough to play college...
