We have said and been reminded over and over again how great this upcoming draft class is going to be in the NBA. However, as we wrote yesterday, could this draft class really be as good as advertised? Nobody knows what the future holds for any of these athletes. Many people can give their opinion and say what they think about how their future will play out, but really that is all it is, an opinion. A video on the article has someone giving their opinion about this being the worst draft class ever. Is this draft class overrated? Be sure to cast your vote! (via Purpleandblues.com)
Staying on the topic of the NBA draft, times really have changed when you are talking about the amount of time draft prospects spend in college before entering the draft. In the past, players used to stay in college for four years before taking the next step to the NBA. Now, players spend just one season in college and decide to leave early for the draft. The NBA has talked about raising the age limit to make players spend at least two seasons in college before entering the NBA. The Jazz see both sides of the early entry rule.

The Deseret News also ran an article yesterday about the NBA age limit. The main part of their article is how Jazz forward Richard Jefferson feels about the NBA/NCAA age limit. Both are very good articles, so you should take the time to read both. (via DeseretNews.com)
