I agree that a person can benefit from the college experience (formal education, life experience, personal growth / maturity), but a person can get a lot of that in the NBA and can go back to college later on too. They can go back to college in 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 years. However, the window for an NBA contract is limited.

I mean this is Amercia, THE free market capital of the world, where people can do whatever they want to make money. And here is the NBA saying you have to stay at least one year? I've never understood this. I mean you can join the military after high school and kill people but can't join the NBA? I mean who are YOU to tell a tell a kid he can't take his talents to the NBA right out of high school? This is business. The NBA wants to draft this guy and sign him because of his talents and the league is saying you have to stay one year? Utterly ridiculous rule. I thought this was a capitalist society.
