Default High-school phenom thinking Europe instead of college.

Quote:
The only reason he will not be drafted this week is the NBA’s age limit that prohibits teams from drafting players until they’re at least one year out of high school. Like every other top player, Jennings, should he qualify academically, could go to college (in this case Arizona), pretend to be a student (all he’d need are two D’s in the fall semester) and then bolt to the NBA next spring.

Only Jennings isn’t any other player. He looks at this entire charade for what it is, a system designed to help the NBA and the NCAA make money, but not necessarily provide much for guys such as him (a fit of worldly logic that ought to define his intelligence more accurately than the college boards).

This is pretty bad for college basketball but I think it is an interesting idea.
