    Is Kentucky Basketball Just A Route To The Nba? My dad dislikes the team so much because he says they just recruit players who don’t graduate and go straight to the nba. I don’t think they have any violations with their grades. But, those freshman sure can play. I’m not a kentucky fan, but I do not dislike them.

    • Curator says:

      College Basketball in general has this problem. The best players only need to play college for a year or two before we know they could get drafted really high. I mean, would you stay in school for 2-3 years if you knew you could make millions instead? A lot of them pass and just take the money.

      Kentucky usually gets the best recruits, so a lot of their players tend to leave early. Definitely not just a Kentucky thing though. Look at Andrew Wiggins this year for Kansas. He’s jumping to the NBA after 1 year of college and will probably be picked first overall in the NBA draft.

  • Keith says:

    Should Every NCAA One And Done Be Required To ? Reimburse the college for the 1 year of their scholarship they used, if not at least 2 yrs. All NCAA B-ball scholarship athletes should be required to stay at least 2 yrs. If they leave early they should be good enough to be drafted in the NBA or be playing overseas somewhere. If they are not playing ball professionally then they pay the scholarship back just like a student loan incurred by any other student. Because someplace , somewhere there is a kid who may not be as talented as the 1 & done’s but he would play just as hard and stay all 4 years and get his degree like a scholarship is designed to do. Reward a student athlete with a degree , not preping him for the NBA. How many young men has Calapari at Kentucky wasted scholarships on or how many slightly less talented but maybe more cerebral young men has he denied a degree for his 1 & done’s ?
    THOUGHTS ?

    • Curator says:

      I’m sure most of those “one and done” players would rather not go to college at all. It’s not their fault that the NBA has a stupid rule requiring players to wait a year after they graduate from high school before they’re eligible to play pro ball.

      Any player who is talented enough to make it to the NBA after one year in college has already paid the university back many times over for the one year of school he attended, by way of ticket sales and merchandise sales. The final four in Dallas is going to draw over 100,000 fans per game, not to mention a huge national TV audience. That’s millions and millions of dollars the NCAA and the colleges will be making, and those fans aren’t there to watch your “slightly less talented but maybe more cerebral young men” brick open jump shots.

      The argument most people make against paying college athletes is that the revenue schools make from mens football and basketball make up a large part of the total budget for college athletics. Your one and done players are helping to pay for 20 or 30 scholarships in less popular sports, as well as womens athletics.

    College Basketball? I start aau this weekend and I’ve been thinking a lot about college. I want to widen my options but I really like Kentucky a lot I know that it’s gonna be hard and I’m gonna have to compete but that’s my goal. Any advice ?

    • Curator says:

      1) Practice harder than you already do.
      2) Practice longer than you already so and for more days.
      3) Study so you don’t get bad grades
      4) Record all your games and make a mixtape
      5) Send it to a college.
      6) If they like it enjoy your scholarship.
      7) Also send you mixtape to youtube channels such as: Ballislife and Hoopmixtape, if they like it, they will upload it and hundreds of thousands of people will watch it. (Some people get over 1 million views on their tape). At that point hope that a college takes an interest in you.

      8) If all else fails, submit an apply to the college and pray that you get in.

      PS
      Syracuse is really easy to get into and has an amazing basketball program.

      I don’t mean to be racist but Kentucky was founded for African Americans (It used to be called Kentucky State College for Negroes) so it helps to be of an African American descent although if you are not African American, you can still get in.
