Kosta Koufos - 2008
BJ Mullens - 2009


WTf...I am so fed up with the 1 and done rule for college basketball and the NBA..

However, Ohio State managed yet AGAIN to land the #1 Center in the nation for the 4th straight year... Ohioan Jared Sullinger

Best quote I've heard in a while about one and done players, by Bob Knight.


"Because now you can have a kid come to school for a year and play basketball and he doesn't even have to go to class. He certainly doesn't have to go to class the second semester. I'm not exactly positive about the first semester. But he would not have to attend a single class the second semester to play through the whole second semester of basketball. That, I think, has a tremendous effect on the integrity of college sports."

This is the downfall to college basketball. It's only a matter of time before the "thug-ish" NBA-style of play is dominate at the college level.

Horrible move by Mullens....he played so below his expectations this year.

He should have stayed in college for at least another year.

Eh, I can't blame anyone for going to the NBA to make some money, but Mullens is gonna be buried on a bench for about 2-3 years before he sees any real PT.

They should just do away with this stupid 1 year rule and go back to how it was where you're free to make the choice like anyone else when they turn 18 rather than be forced to go to college. What's the point of the NBDL if these young kids can go to college for 1 year then jump right to the NBA?

Yeah, don't like this move for Mullens. The dude was projected 1 overall on alot of mock drafts prior to the season.

This draft is weak, though, so maybe he feels he could benefit from that.

I wouldn't exactly call Mullens a "star center," either.

Before the season started he was projected a #1 overall pick. Didn't exactly live up to it this season, though.

What a bad move, he really should have stayed atleast one more season.

Bad move for Mullens. And yea, I feel for Ohio State. I heard that if Koufos, who the Jazz drafted this past draft, would have been a Top 3 pick this year and could have lead them to the Elite 8 or so.

I don't see how this is a bad move for him. He is going to be a lottery pick. The way the NBA draft is now, which is based on potential and not on talent, he would be stupid not to go this year.

Not sure what mocks you were looking at b/c Griffin was the projected #1 wire to wire everywhere I've seen.

Mullens was always up there in the top 5, but most people knew he'd be a project whether he was good in college or not.

It should be a minimum 2 years removed from high-school. I think that would raise the level of play in college basketball so much and be really beneficial to a lot of these kids.

Coming into the year, Mullens was certainly on the top of alot of mock drafts. Maybe not ALL, but definitly some.

if he does go in the lottery he will be late lottery he could have been top 5 if he stayed another year

Needs to stay another year, but it is a weaker draft and he is probably late lottery/1st pick by just his athleticism.

No your correct. He was No1 pick in a lot of the mock drafts.

Bad decision by Mullens. He should come back next year and he stands a chance of dominating and being a very high lottery pick after his sophomore season.
