So you're covering for GMs and front offices who make poor decisions? What about the kids who spend 3 years in school and get drafted and still are busts? That hurts the talent pool. These GMs are tracking these kids from the time that they're 14. We don't need an extra year to see that the kids are busts. That's faulty logic.
Why is this being overlooked? Nobody is FORCING these GMs to draft them. There's no pressure from fans and ownership saying "Hey...draft Kwame Brown or else you're fired".
All these dudes go through the same evaluation process. If a GM thinks (insert teenager here) projects to be a better player than (insert imaginary NBA-ready upperclassman here)...who's fault is that?
We always here about the young guys that don't pan and why the rule is good. Well where's the rule that prevents Adam Morrison from happening?
Or maybe...JUST MAYBE...some guys pan out...some don't. Just like in EVERY sport regardless of an age limit.
