For those of you who question the validity of age-restricted draft rules by the NFL and NBA or why there aren’t more commercial opportunities for athletes coming out of high school, this article, looking at the NBA’s rule and how things might change if it’s lifted, is an excellent primer on both topics. Definitely worth a few minutes of your time to read.
One response to “Zion Williamson, and a post-“one-and-done” era”
I think both Football and Basketball should use the option that if a kid in college is not selected high in the draft (or not at all) the student / athlete should be allowed to go back to college to improve his draft chances. The current system does not benefit the athlete nor the school. It does allow the pro teams to pick up journeymen athletes for a cheap price.
