KT, I think they are being forced. If you were a parent of a 17-20 would you want your child playing overseas because they can't play in their own country because of how old they are. I wouldn't if he or she were mine. So now they have to go to college here to stay in the US. I just believe if a company (NBA) wants to hire a kid right out of high school then they should be allowed. It is age discrimination the way it is right now. Now if the company (NBA) doesn't want the kid then it is their prerogative to pass on them. After all they are the one paying the bills. We can send our 18 year olds to war but they can't work in their trade of choice. Do you see something wrong with this?
