Why worry about the NBA rules because its not for the vast majority of NCAA players. Worry about NCAA rules and what is good for D1. Pass rules that make 1 and done players choose another path if they are not committed to 2 years. No one is forcing them to take a D1 scholarship. Yes these rules will have lots of legalese but don't they already have a stacks of rules like that.

This isn't a wise decision for most 1 and done prospects, and I'm not worried about it catching on. Where is he going to get valuable playing experience? College classes are a joke, but he'd be a better player with a year of experience at Syracuse.

I don't agree with forcing these kids to play a year in the NCAAs, as we've seen so many people make the successful jump (Lebron, Kobe, KG, etc.), but this isn't hurting the game. It's been a lot of fun to watch guys like Towns, Okafor, Davis, Zion, etc. For those of you asking for an MLB system -- raise your hand if you actually watch college baseball.

He was a big time recruit, too, but Young was the guy everyone had such high hopes for.
ah yes...

I remember Mo at ut. Sounds like you "teach"? in Wichita? I went to KMC, years ago. I was a yr behind Greg Dreiling, my parents were good friends of his parents, my sister played with his sister at KMC.

No teaching for me lol, when I say my high school, I meant the one I attended ... just a mile northeast of KMC as a matter of fact! I graduated three years before Maurice so I followed his career closely. I was a bit young to remember Dreiling in high school, but remember him in college. The rare guy to play for WSU ans KU!

You specifically said this: Players choose to go to college because it’s the most lucrative/convenient option for them not because anyone is forcing them or because their “right” to play in the NBA is being infringed upon.

If you had said the "next most lucrative option," I would have agreed with you. I fully understand that the one-done-done rule doesn't actually force them to go to school for a year, but I absolutely think that it is an unfair rule that penalizes kids. If the NBA was having trouble evaluating players, the solution should have been to figure out a way to do their job better, not to screw the kids over by passing a rule keeping them out of the NBA for a season.
For it to be the “next lucrative option” the NBA would need to be a option, it isn’t. Get it?
