It was going to happen eventually with these NIL deals and now it finally has. Miami's Isaiah Wong is threatening to go into the transfer portal if his NIL compensation isn't raised. Wong's NIL agent Adam Papas informed ESPN of the player's intentions on Thursday.
quote:

"If Isaiah and his family don't feel that the NIL number meets their expectations they will be entering the transfer portal tomorrow, while maintaining his eligibility in the NBA draft and going through the draft process."
This is going to get out of hand fast, no?

college basketball (and football) as we knew it are long gone. And it all happened in a very short timeframe. My interest in both sports has waned since the NIL and transfer portal. It's essentially a pro league with free agency. What a shame.

The agent and the player need to get their arse out there and go get more NIL money . . . No one is stopping them from making the effort. Do they just expect the deals to come to them? Kid should fire his agent.

Gary Patterson came out last fall saying that he needed the local businesses to step it up to help keep players out of the transfer portal. And a month or so later, he was no longer with TCU. Regarding this guy, what team would want a guy like this on their team now? Coming out saying this will just know that the team threw a bunch of money at him. Also, if he was so worth it...why not go into the NBA draft now?

The idea is to maximize your value. See Oscar Tshiebwe. I have never seen this guy play but it stands to reason that he is more valuable as a college basketball player where talent is less concentrated, but can only play for a fixed number of years.

Seriously, who is buying products/ticket based on this type of guy? I wonder how the market is determining this in their minds. I swear fans that will spend money based on specific players are a loonie.

Liberal court will cause college football and basketball to become riots for show me the money,money, money$. Hopefully baseball will be a little less monetized. Conservative alumni will also step aside and review whether they want to pay increase prices to football and basketball games when the players show no alligence to any particular university

Please get a clue. Everything that you personally dislike as a republican is not a liberal cause. Free markets should be a conservative issue. I am not going to speculate as to why you believe they are not in this case. However, to demonstrate to you that you are wrong on this, here is what Justice Bret Kavanaugh had to say about the NCAA and its market restrictions: Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh's concurring opinion, which began by calling the ruling "an important and overdue course correction" before unleashing a series of blistering attacks on the longstanding NCAA model. ... "Nowhere else in America can businesses get away with agreeing not to pay their workers a fair market rate on the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers a fair market rate," Kavanaugh wrote. "And under ordinary principles of antitrust law, it is not evident why college sports should be any different. ... Price-fixing labor is price-fixing labor. And price-fixing labor is ordinarily a textbook antitrust problem because it extinguishes the free market in which individuals can otherwise obtain fair compensation for their work."

I don't begrudge anybody for trying to get paid. But, just call this minor league sports. Be honest.
