I'd be fine with the baseball rule in basketball.
Initially it would hurt CBB as you would have a ton of guys declare for the draft out of HS who had no business doing so. In reality, there are probably only 10 or so guys each year who are good enough to warrant making the jump to the NBA. The...

Believe me, I have been very critical of CJJ this year, but I think it was the right move. UGA was posting up and shooting over LSU's guards early on. You hated to sit the hot hand, but he had to do something to stop that part of UGA's offense. It was a tough spot for CJJ....

No, no, no, no, no! This can't be right! Everyone knows the most prominent reason for LSU's struggles this year is it's "midget" backcourt. You know, the backcourt with one guy who has led the SEC in Asst/TO ratio all season, and another who is 5th in 3pt shooting %.
