ESPN, as usual, is missing the mark. They are stating that more legislation to keep athletes in school and in class is what is necessary to keep these superstar players interested in the NCAA game. However, this feels criminal as when a player turns 16 he is legally allowed to join the workforce. If the workforce has demand for his skills, then he should be able to make money for his skills. If a young genius student invents a new product and attempts to sell it to a business no one is telling him that he cannot because he is under 19. The real issue is that the current supply of NBA players is terrible, and until there is an upgrade in fundamental talent across the board there is going to be a continued demand for undeveloped, raw athleticism. So lets take off this 19 year rule and lets get the NBA a stock of players that are so good that it would be unattractive for a franchise to take an undeveloped athlete as they could not compete at that level. If the college game never returns to its stature, so be it; these guys are bidding for a high risk job. If someone wants to pay them to play let them play.
