The NBA’s “three-way conversation”

How badly does professional basketball want to keep early entries out?  Badly enough to consider bribing subsidizing student-athlete compensation.

I do believe people are starting to freak out a little over unionization and the NCAA’s perceived incompetence.  Maybe that was Emmert’s plan all along.  Crazy like a fox!

  1. Holy cow, when we were all discussing this a couple of weeks ago, I almost posted on one of the threads that the NCAA should ask the NFL and NBA to contribute, since the NCAA is essentially saving them the cost of having to field farm teams. But I didn’t post it because I figured I’d get laughed off the board, even I didn’t think either of the pro leagues would even consider it.

    But when you figure how much those leagues save (I know the NBA has the D-League, but they’d really have to build that out if there were no college basketball), it would make sense that they should kick in some money to help their de facto farm systems.

    “It does, in my mind, need to be a three-way conversation,” Silver said.

    Silver doesn’t often do a three-way with Emmert but when he does he goes from one and done to two and through. Stay hungry, my friends

    Yeah, that Mark Emmert is a real genius. In related news, Moe, Larry and Curley all have been accepted to Yale Law School on scholarship after following Emmert’s example of exhibiting understated intelligence.
