I concur.

One of the laziest players in Sonics history. Drank a lot. Partied up at local colleges.

This is why the one year in college rule needs to stay

From 01-05 90% of the kids coming out of highschool ended up like this guy

I don't like the one-year rule but how can you read a playbook if you can't read?

Seriously though, if you can't get the necessary SAT/ACT score you have bigger problems that need to be addressed. A very good chance someone that poorly educated gets taken advantage of by a crooked agent, business "partner" or whatever. I think if a team is willing to draft a guy he should be allowed to play but There are very few players for whom this is really an issue.

You can still buy four lokos in Texas, they're gross though.

one year in college isn't gonna make a dumb basketball player smarter in life or on the court.

it starts earlier that that with parents and the right programs in and before highschool.

It depends on the players to figure out whats best for them by listening to the right people
