Anyone here think more high schoolers should go the Latavious Williams route and go straight to the D-League?

Personally, I think it is the best place to learn the NBA game for a high schooler
- You adjust to the travel, practice schedule, and conditioning
- You are around players who get sent down/called up
- You are guaranteed to spend a year there for a team and play a longer season
- If you are good enough you can make their all star me and be by all the scouts
- You learn how to balance new found money, family, and living by yourself
- You have coaches who actually use NBA offenses/defenses since some teams aren't shared
- You don't have to go to a foreign country or waste your time in college for those who have no interest in going to school

We're gonna see alot more of this and also the Brandon Jennings route, lets just face it some kids have tons of talent but just are not that smart. Instead of forcing them to go to 1yr of college which usually ends up with somekind of scandal (even if its not caught you still know somethings fishy how some of these kids are actually passing there classes), they should go to the D-league or europe, play with men and see how they fair.

Just a sidenote, my community college team is PHENOMENAL and thats because we have some of the most talented basketball players from around the region, problem is there D students and can only get into community college.
