[quote]thats not true
he was here 4 years and started like 10 games.
Thats not really half.
Nowhere did I say he started in half the games he was on the team.
He started in games the past 3 years, which is half of 6...the 6 was just the span that sounded correct anyway, its...

[quote]Not true at all. The NBA set the age requirement to pretty much guarantee a year of college before getting drafted. [/quote]
The part you chose to bold is absolutely true.
Also, the age limit is only part of the rule, with the year out of high school being a seperate additional requirem...

[quote]I find it interesting that no one argues over whether 17 year old HS baseball players should be allowed to go pro, or 14 year tennis phenoms.[/quote]
This thread is about basketball, the same arguments get made for baseball when the timing is relevant. Whether they are driven by self inter...

[quote]If 18 is the age by which a person is considered an adult, then that person should have all rights afforded to all adults. If congress wants to set it at 16, 19, 21, 25, I personally don't care. [/quote]

[quote]An 18 year old adult shouldn't be excluded solely based on age. That's the argument.[/quote]
I appreciate that, and you have been steadfast in that stance. However, there are other factors at play here, the rule is not in place simply to restrict people of a certain age. What you are argui...

[quote]That is completely untrue. The age requirement is 19. [/quote]
Time to ruin my argument:
Does the rule of being 19 at the end of the calender year of the draft simply not just ensure that the draftee is at least 18 at the time of the draft? Since the date of the draft is not static, if ...

[quote]I'm not ignorning that. It's completely irrelevant. No one said the NBA or any other entity should hire unqualified applicants. What I'm saying is that age (for an adult) isn't a qualification. Just like being male, white, protestant, heterosexual aren't qualifications on a resume.[/quote]

[quote] think the 1-year rule along with 3 years for NFL (or 2+ age) are unconstitutional. But when you have billions dollar revenue entities (NBA, NFL) hand shaking with other billion dollar revenue entities (NCAA), they get to make up the rules for themselves. [/quote]
You are completely ignori...

You think UK gets the talent they do without regard to playing time? Their system is dependent on early departures.
Use your brain dude. ...

Some of you are too hard on Jalen. Dude started the majority of his games at "DBU". Do you think anyone else in this draft could have done that? I would have to think that every player he competed for starting time with will log time in the NFL. Crazy to think we label ourselves that for like 6 or s...
