I was prepared to write one of those “stopped clock right twice-a-day” posts about Mark Bradley’s column on doing away with the NBA’s one-and-done rule, when his logic got in the way.
Stern said this week he’d prefer a two-and-done rule. Mark Cuban, who owns the Dallas Mavericks, is plumping for three-and-done. Some prefer the baseball way: A player can sign with a pro team if drafted out of high school, but if he chooses to play in college he can’t be drafted again until after his junior season. Me, I don’t like any of those suggestions.
… The best course would be to repeal the NBA’s rule and replace it with no rule, to return to the days where high schoolers could be drafted.
Got that? Bradley doesn’t like a rule that allows high school players to be drafted, but no rule, so that high school players can be drafted? That works.
As long as we’re in agreement, I guess.
