Call To Action

LeBron James, one of the most famous basketball player of the NBA, in his high school days. What would his life be if he was not allowed to enter the draft at the age of eighteen?

The NBA’s requirement that players be nineteen years old or a year removed from high school is unfair to the players who are ready for professional basketball and it creates many more negative affects than positive. Players who are ready for the NBA are just using college basketball as a stepping stone into the NBA draft and education is not being encouraged, in addition these players run the risk of getting injured and never playing professional basketball. Players and coaches alike are against the age requirement and it our responsibility to be aware of the situation and support those players that have a right to play on the professional level right out of high school.
