Default One and done has killed college basketball

The one and done means the best players can continue to go to Kentucky,UNC,Duke,Louisville and other powerhouses without having the possibility of sitting on the bench. The best players from Kentucky leave after one year and the best just sign on for the next and the cycle begins again. If players had to wait until after their junior years, players would be more likely to go to other schools for early playing time. If they don't have to wait then the national powerhouses just reload year after year and other schools just have to go after leftovers. Not good for us....

Also, the talent enterin the NBA wouldn't be so watered down if kids played college ball for three years.

Default Re: One and done has killed college basketball

Most college basketball fans follow one of those teams though, so most people are good with the current situation. I agree it would be more fun if top talent would spread out a bit, but there are always teams of no name upperclassmen ranked in the top ten. Wisconsin has been good for a while with not many burger boys. South Carolina isn't able to outrecruit UK or Florida, so we need to build a program off of a scheme and a coach. We are screwed if Frank Martin's vision is not realized in 2 years.

Well I am NOT a fan of the NBA, and I don't care to watch those games. I love College basketball games instead. I do agree that if a player is recruited by a school, the basketball student athlete should stay for three years like football players do. The NBA game is not good to watch anymore for me. You are right its watered down!

They need to go back to letting them turn pro out of high school. If they go to college they need to stay for at least 3 years.

Default Re: One and done has killed college basketball

The 1 year rule is the DUMBEST rule in sports. 99% of basketball players could care less about any kind of academics. Making them go to school is pointless, but only require 1 year is a complete waste of everyones time. They don't accomplish anything academically. Why not split it down the middle between 1 and 3 and require 2. Require them to take money management classes as part of their course load so that they don't spend every dime of their rookie contract the first year and understand what's required of them financially after they leave school.

The NCAA has a responsibility to student athletes in helping set them up for a successful future. Only requiring them to go one year does nothing at all for any of those kids.

I understand about basketball and football being different but setting young athletes up for failure after athletics does nobody any good.

This is perfect.

I'm still a big believer that scheme and coach can and will continue to be a big factor as well (i.e. Butler, VCU, etc...) but overall, the powerhouse schools will continue to dominate because most of those top recruits could give a shit about a college edumacation.

Karma bites them in the ass, though, when most of them turn out to be flops after their one year in college anyway.

Those top kids that go to UNC & Duke typically stay a few years, don't they?

2 years would be better than this. It was always a bad idea to make it only one year.

i disagree that its means theres no competitive balance. if you want to argue about a mediocre product thats one thing, but louisville won the title without a bunch of one and dones vs a michigan team that didnt have a bunch of one and dones and we saw butler go to back to back title games recently.

it does allow the big schools to reload quicker, but the teams with 2 or more frosh lottery picks are beatable.

I'm sorry but kids who are 18-19 entering the NBA cannot bang with the bigger players. Think of low post players going up against someone like Dwight Howard or Zach Randolph. I think it is just as important for them to develop. It should be a minimum of two years to stay in college basketball.

Default Re: One and done has killed college basketball

There is no "One and Done" Rule. The NBA's Collective Bargaining Agreement simply states that players must be at least 19 years old and one year removed from graduating high school to be draft eligible. Players do not have to go to college. They can take a year off or play basketball overseas to make money. Brandon Jennings did the latter. Players who go to college are simply doing so for the experience, coaching/training and additional exposure.

Without the "rule" college basketball would not benefit. The NCAA has no file footage of Kobe Bryant or LeBron James because both players went straight to the pros after high school. From a business standpoint, the NCAA could have made a ton of money off them. Without the rule, the freshman classes wouldn't be as star studded and storylines wouldn't be as interesting. This season for example is only great because of the amount of great freshmen playing.

I'm surprised the NBA hasn't tried to promote the D-League as a viable option in place of college and overseas. The kid would be making money (advantage over college) and getting experience playing in NBA-style games (advantage over international competition).

The NBA just does a bad job in general with the D-League. It's seen as a demotion rather than an enhancement. If you're a star freshman recruit, I could see why you wouldn't want to go to the D-League, and why college would be more preferrable.

At college you get to live one last year as a kid, have fun, go to parties, be a BMOC, etc. Then you get the opportunity to compete for an NCAA Championship which is better than competing for a D-League Championship lol.

Either way there's a lot of confusion about the rule. Nobody is forced to go to college, but in comparison it's the best option. Taking a year off leads to more questions about someone's game since they haven't played against great competition since graduating high school.

I think it's actually set by the NBA players Assc. I've heard Commissioner Stern talk about this subject and he basically say, "Don't complain about it to me. Talk to the union."
