    Great analogy, but you are missing the point. I am a fan of a team that is stuck in mediocrity. They won't trade all of their future assets or current players with potential for a superstar or someone close to it.

    On the other side they won't give their players with potential all of the playing time that they need to be ready to make a serious impact by year 2 or year 3 of their NBA careers. They also won't deliberately tank in order to add top talent to their roster via the draft.

    We are stuck in this ugly limbo thing and it is getting harder and harder to support.

    If players had a chance to leave out of high school the team that I am a fan of might take a risk and be able to snatch someone that is a future superstar but they are underrated because they are coming out of high school.

    I know there are a lot of holes in that theory but it is more realistic than the other scenarios that I outlined at the beginning of this rant.
    Wiggins would have gone #1 this year, straight out of HS. I do see your flawed point, though.

    Thanks. BTW, only I can call my logic flawed.

    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    It is BY FAR the smart play. For the league. For the NCAA .. and even for the kids ..
    It's debatable, but it's my strong opinion. No straight to the league, no one and done.. drag the kids through some education, through some adjusting through transitions, some maturing, and bring a new fanbase with them. It is the right answer, imo.
