Default Solution to Prep Stars going Pro

Send them to the D-League once they get drafted for a couple of years..like the MLB..... So they get experience and learn the game and also kno what there up against...This would be a great idea...and thats what the D-league should be for..."D" Development League.... This would of been great fo Kwame....I don't kno bout Lebron, Kobe or KG....But fo ppl like my boy Telfair, Kwame and other busts....Thats the only was to prevent 1 year pit stops in the NCAA.... They will be able to receive better instruction for the NBA... Thoughts


HOLLA

I'm sure the teams who draft those players will be very happy to pay them $1-4m/yr not to play in the NBA. Yeah, great idea.

I say just let them to go the league.

Sure, there have been busts, but the NBA will figure out how to properly scout them. Busts won't be eliminated, but the frequency will decrease.

Then we won't have college freshmen who (as coach Knight said) don't really have to go to classes for a whole semester.

I'm kinda the other way, i'd like to see players have at least two years of college, that would make sure they went to class at least for 3 semesters and after two years in college some kids may feel more inclined to keep working on a degree even after they turn pro... it would also have a positive effect on things that we hear complaints on now like maturity levels and fundamentals of the game...

I have to disagree with this.

NCAA coaches will not get back to teaching basketball until it becomes a benefit to them. Two years is not long enough to promote teaching of basketball. That's just long enough to get a guy fully up to speed on their system. Another part of the "fundamentals problem" is that the NBA has created a style of play where supreme athleticism is more important than skill.

The easiest answer to this problem is lowering the amount first rounders get. Owners wouldn't mind and the player's union wouldn't have much to complain about cause the people affected are not yet a part of the union.

As much as I enjoyed watching Kevin Durant, Oden play, I really think a 19 year old limit just a bad rule. Don't force a kid to go to college, that should be a decision they make on their own, cause ultimately college is not there to prep your skills for the NBA. It's supposed to be about academia and expanding your knowledge base. If the NBA believes that these kids are not ready, then create a institute for them to grow as a player and mentally, but don't dump them off to colleges, because end of the day..it's just an insult to those who pay to go to college and even those receiving academic scholarships.

They need to just turn the D League into a full fledged minor league.

15 D-League teams (they are at 12 right now) each affiliated with a West and East NBA team. Rookie deals would only count against the cap when they get called up. With lowered rookie salaries the NBA teams could get a guy game experience against his peers. Plus by getting guys experience in the minors you can get back to having fundamentals and true basketball skill being more important than athleticism.

Basically model it after baseball's minor league system. Only difference being NBA has only level of minor play.

"The only way to truly succeed is to know the pain of failure."

Let them play with the big boys, because if you play against the best in the world you'll improve.... fast. They'll learn faster, and get better, than if they were in the D-League.

Simply not true.

Improvement is not about who you play against. It's about teaching and exposure. You need time on the floor to put what you learned to use.

Right, so give them minutes in scrimmages in practice and in games. However you will learn more from the best in the world than from D-Leaguers, correct? If you played a game against the NBA All-First team, everyday you'd far improve over playing the D-League All-Stars.
