Being able to succeed in the NBA without going to college is a big topic of controversy in the sports industry. For gifted basketball players, there are some benefits and drawbacks of skipping college. Examples of Players who Skipped College The first player to skip college and go straight into pro basketball (in this case the ABA) was Reggie Harding (Faye). Harding was drafted in the fourth round of the 1961 draft, unfortunately Harding didn’t touch the court his first year in the league, which lead him to re-enter the draft the very next year. When people argue that players should have to go to college before pro, they bring up the name Reggie Harding because he wasn’t ready for all the hype leading up to the draft and his body wasn’t developed enough for the ABA.

“The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to the Sports Guy” by Bill Simmons, was a book only the Sports Guy could write. Save a few hundred pages for Simmons to inform the readers on how he became the basketball and Celtics fan he is today (hint: it was his dad choosing between a motorcycle and season tickets to the Celtics), why as a child he called himself Jabaal Abdul-Simmons, footnotes galore, his hatred for Isiah Thomas and Wilt Chamberlain, and many of the greatest “What-if’s” in basketball history. Other than that, Bill Simmons uses this behemoth of a book to indulge on what he has thought to be “The Secret” of basketball and winning championships, and gives his take on how the NBA Hall of Fame should be constructed. In a pyramid style ranking with five levels Bill Simmons has who he thinks should be where, as of 2009, and each level getting smaller and smaller due to the higher standard. It all ends with the 12 best of all time, sitting atop the pyramid like kings with Michael Jordan number one.
