Personally, I hate how teams need to wait for their draft pick to develop and grow. College players should focus on developing and working on their game. And a lot of these players are just immature kids one year out of highschool who get a big payday and are satisfied with what they have.

EDIT: Do you think NBA should make it manditory for college players to stay for 3 years?

it wouldn't be a bad rule... I mean the NFL has had success using a min 2yrs in college rule

it's definitely better than a 1 and done which has college teams retooling every year

NFL uses the 3 year rule. Have to be out of HS for 3 years. The reason why is because HS football players are no where ready for the NFL physically. They would get killed if they were allowed to go straight to the NFL. That is why that rule is great and works so well. Players out of HS in football are not ready to play in the NFL.

In basketball you have players that can come out of HS and play in the NBA right away. LeBron James, Blake Griffin, Greg Oden, John Wall, etc. These guys don't need college at all.

The NBA needs to go back to letting players going pro after HS. The one and done is not good for College BB. Also not fair to players talented wise like James, Griffin, etc. They should not have to go to college for a year and take a chance to get a serious injury and lose a lot of money. Irving from Duke got hurt. What if it was really serious and cost him his NBA career when he could of been playing in it already?

I wish the NBA/CBB would go to the rule they do in Baseball. You can enter the draft after HS if you like BUT if you don't and you go to college you have to stay for college for 3years before you can enter the draft again.

The problem for that is some players are ready to play in the NBA right away. LeBron James type talented players should not have to stay in college for 3yrs when he can play in the NBA. Its not fair for those players. The 3yr rule won't work b/c of that. Some players out of HS are ready to perform in the NBA.

It would be great for college basketball but NBA would be losing out on some star players already when they could be in the NBA. Look at Blake Griffin. IF that rule was around he would still be in college BB.

They just need to get done of the one year rule and let players come after HS.

Thats true, but what about all the other players? Those players you mentioned are just one each in their respective draft class.

There are so many young players who have such a raw game. I think they should stay for three years just to get their games polished enough so they can make an immediate impact.

I am looking from the prespective of an NBA team not the players. It would be better for NBA teams.

Teams should be allowed to sign whoever they want. Forget age or college restrictions. It's silly. If a player is good enough, they should be allowed to play. it's that simple. and who is the league to say that a team can't sign a player because they're 19 and not 20. A team should be free to spend their own money however they want.

If a player is good enough to get drafted at 16 years old, then why should they be forced to wait X number of years?

I would personally hate it, could u imagine if the raps one year landed the number one overall pick and they couldnt pick the best player in the country because he was only in college for one year? The players should declare for the draft whenever they feel they are ready to make an impact

I don't think the restriction would benefit their development. If they stay in college, they're playing college ball, not NBA ball. They would still have adjust to the NBA and their players when they get drafted.

if you prefer to see better basketball, then players staying in, minimum 2 years is best, 3 is ideal.

Top "hyped stars" like Lebron weren't ready for the NBA, and if they hadn't gotten the NBA "star treatment" would have fouled out and turned the ball over at an alarming rate.

yes but then ur limiting ur options with the draft. players choose how long they want to stay in college for if they want to stay three years thats fine. but if players can declare when they are ready then teams have more options on who to draft

No. I think the current age limit is silly. The high school jump is so enigmatic. Bring it back.

The college game would be SOOOOOO much better if the good players had to stay in school for at least 2-3 years.

Totally agree. This whole idea of making staying in school mandatory is a bit over the top. Like you said, if player X thinks he is good enough to leave college and making a living for himself in the NBA, all the best to him. And if player Z thinks it would benefit him in the future to stay in school, then once again, good for him. While they aren't exactly adults, they are old enough to make their own decisions and do what is right for themselves and their family.
