I would like to see the NBA require players to stay in college 2 years or require a player to be 20 yrs old by the time fall camp starts before they are eligible to play. This would help them mature, develop their games and stabilize the programs at their schools. The lure of big money without the brains to manage it. The Luther Eliss article in todays paper said that 60% of NBA players are bankrupt within 5 years of retiring. Even higher for NFL players. Gives a whole new meaning to "Dumb Jock".
