How To Approach the NBA Age Limit

+

As Adam Silver and the NBA have continued to clash with the NBPA over the minimum age limit, it seems like a common ground cannot be reached. The current influx of 19 year olds year after year who obviously still need more college experience to develop their skills, bodies, and minds to adapt to the difficulty of the pro game does not help either the NBA or NCAA product. Not only does this dilute the pro game, as 1st round picks with guaranteed contracts take the jobs of veterans who always seem to round out NBA rosters, it hurts the college game because very few great players stay and build legacies for themselves and the schools program.
