    B. Knight is right. Furthermore, it's a form of slavery if you will. These colleges are making money off these kids. It's pimping to the 25th power.

    if the newspaper in rochester can demand 3-5 years exerience to cover kickball, why the fuck can't the nba demand three years college experience before entering the league?

    Because it takes more knowledge, education and experience to write than it does to play.

    kids without a high level of experience (collegiate) aren't exactly killing the league. also, setting minimum mandatories isn't exactly against labor laws.

    I agree, if they can play and sign a legal, binding contract, they should be allowed in the NBA. If they get paid to be a professional, they can't play college ball. Simple rule.

    actually, i was saying workplaces can dictate levels of professionalism, experience before they hire. the nba is a workplace.
