    Should the NBA let high school players be eligible for the draft again?

    Simple question for a good discussion

    Thoughts?

    Yes, it's stupid to waste the time and resources of colleges when the players have no intent to get a degree or, in some cases, even go to class.

    I dont think so. I actualy like the College, it makes players play up against the best of the best.

    I'm pretty split on it.

    I think everyone should go to college, but I don't like how kids go to college without intent to get a degree.

    It's an imperfect system.

    Might as well, they only go there for one year anyways. I mean, if you're gonna make them go to college, you have to at least make them get a degree or something.

    No, they should stay in college for at least two years.

    Wouldn't the NBA be the best of the best?

    Being a current college student, I see absolutely no reason to force someone to spend a year in college. I always saw it as a handshake deal between Stern and the NCAA to generate more college basketball buzz outside of March Madness.

    exactly. I will add, I am for no age restriction. Simply because the level of play in college basketball is a joke now compared to when I grew up. If you make a kid play 1 year, we simply get 1 year rental basketball with the great recruits. Just let them go to the NBA, or offer the following: Skip college for the NBA, or be forced to play at least 2 years in college.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Yes, allowing HS players to re-enter the Draft could make the talent gap a lot smaller in the NBA...
