Go easy on the kid.
If you had the benefit of knwoing that if you made that decision, and you cheated the SAT to get into school (which is a joke, the NCAA is the AHL for the NBA, it aint about school for its athletes)
Would you say no?
If it meant you had a way to prove yourself and you'd grab a contract for Chicago, and then win ROTY on your way to a huge life, would you???
Don't be so quick to Judge the kid.
