Re: NBA thread 2012-13

In Tennis you can earn money at 14 or whatever so I don't think you can say the NBA is doing anything wrong really. They even brought that rule in about playing a year of college before you enter the NBA.

I never got into college sports - as far as I'm aware their is nothing like it in most other countries certainly not here (Australia).

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

I am just saying that with the NBA offering these kids a truckload of money, of course they are going to bite more often then not.
And I think that the tennis folks strongly discourage 14 yr olds from turning pro after several bad experiences. Rarely do we even see anyone on your full time at 16

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

NBA used to allow you to be 18 and then you could enter the draft right out of high school but the rule was created after David Stern didn't want to encourage students to skip college. Its a dumb rule however because Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett,Tracy McGrady, Dwight Howard, JR Smith, Lebron James and so many other great players came to the NBA and skipped college. Forcing students to go for just 1 year in my opinion hurts college basketball because kids stay their mandatory year and leave the college program left with filling their spot on the roster. I don't think I can blame the players at all but I just think if they made players go to college it should be for something more meaningful than 1 year.

Now back onto this season who's team isn't in the playoffs?? This is the time the NBA is at its best honestly.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

A Spurs/Lakers 1st round series is not unappealing
Still based on this season the Lakers will probably find a way to fuck it up!

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

he's the most loyal to his former team of ANY retired player I've seen, if he's still on payroll I wouldn't be surprised.









Oh BTW anyone see the Bulls stop another winning streak??? It's gonna be trouble trouble once Derrick Rose is ready to come back.
