The 1-and-done rule has been a hot topic in basketball for sometime now. Players have been speaking out against the NCAA more than ever recently.
This morning NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski announced that the NBA and the NBA Players Association are talking about a change to the rule and it may be implemented as soon as the 2020 draft. If there is an agreement, this change will allow high school seniors to enter the draft without having to spend a year in college or another pro league (like over seas).
The 1-and-done rule has been around since 2006, and to be honest, I am happy that it’s coming to an end. If a player really feels like they are ready to go, let them go. Players like LeBron, Kobe and KG all went to the draft straight from high school and I think it’s safe to say they had pretty successful careers.
This does not mean every player should take this route, most players should, and will, still go to college or another pro league to develop. However, there are always those couple players that are ready and shouldn’t waste their time and risk injury in college.
