Should their be the 1 and done rule
I firmly believe that the one and done rule should be reintroduce the one and done rule into the NBA. College does not get athletes any money. In college are at risk of injuries which could end their career. Gives athletes time to get into drugs and addiction.
The only way to go to the nba out of high school is to be held back one year
Some players go into high school looking like the next big thing and then they do poorly in college which could potentially ruin their draft stock
The nba prohibits people under the age of 19 to enter the annual nba draft
The one and done rule is a rule that makes you have to go to college after grade 12 because you are not yet old enough to enter into the draft
High schoolers who feel they are NBA ready should be able to enter the draft freely after grade 12
Now that the 1 and done rule has been in play I feel teams will be more wise while scouting highschool players. We have seen many highschool busts such as Kwame Brown
Players get could get injured before the draft and lose draft stock
(example: OG Anuoby)
Can end promising careers (Greg Oden)
If you rely on athletiscism a knee injury could destroy your career. It could have happened to Zion Williamson if the injury he sustained was more severe
People who need money should be able to help their families by going to the nba
Some don't want to get an education and only want to get to the nba. No money also makes college less attractive
Colleges will not be able to use athletes for their own financial gain
Addiction/ substance use
If 1 and done didn't exist Len Bias may not have died of cocaine OD if he decided to be drafted in grade 12
Many careers have been destroyed by substance abuse such as OJ Mayo
Some players use drugs as a way to reduce stress and pressure.
The one and done rule should be abolis\hed from the nba in my opinion. I think grade 12 athletes should be able to make the jump right into the NBA. Going to the NBA sooner would give them money, give them less time to get into trouble and jeopardizee their career.
