the solution is for NBA scouting departments to do more due diligence on their draft picks. The NBA lowers the minimum age to mitigate the risk of a botched selection for a crappy front office. the league's top front offices consistently get value with their draft picks, no matter where they draft, and don't use "well he was a freshman" or "he was only 18 years old" as excuses when they screw up. lower the minimum age to 16, who the fuck cares, if front offices are doing their due diligence leading up to a draft, then 16 year olds won't get drafted because they aren't NBA ready...and the process will correct itself. guys will stay in school longer, spend more time developing physically, because that's the only way they'll get drafted.
