Now my thing is what’s the odds of getting hurt in college basketball and not being able to play in the NBA? You worked your whole life to be on the top of the world and now you 're going down hill, all because of a injury. That 's my whole point, if you just could have entered the draft straight out of high school, probably none of this never would have happened. Now you’re thinking “all my recruiters are gone” and my chances of living the perfect dream is dead now. The odds of getting injured and not being able to play basketball is a good 50 percent because either you can get hurt and not go through therapy because it’s difficult or don’t give up and come back even stronger.
That’s like today game your trying to get under your opponent skin that is all because of the fab five. Basketball would not be the same if the fab five would not have change the way it was played. They definitely left there marks on basketball history for good and bad things. It is so terrible that they were not able to win a NCAA championship in there two years but they were able to make it to the grandest stage of all the NBA. I could not see how basketball would be if the fab five would have not done so much to change
Magic says that going to college could be hard, but if people believed in themselves, they could be successful. The author also says that it's difficult to get into a basketball career when there are too many players but with a careers people may get a job that their could be successful. The author’s point of view about this topic is that people should have a college degree even if their occupation doesn't require them to have one. As I noticed in the previous paragraph, college may be hard, but everybody can have the opportunity to get educated. Even if people don’t know what they want to do study in college, they study different subjects and latter can select a careers of their choice.
Thats makes you feel like you went far enough to please other people. You can’t be complacent in the sport of wrestling because that 's where things go wrong. What i’m saying is that the week leading up to semi-state has to be very focused. Freshman of any sport is very hard because it 's your first year of “high school athletics.” You have to learn how to go hard in practice. My freshman year of wrestling was alright and what I mean by that is that it wasn 't the best.
The regular season is almost over and players should prepare for the postseason. I understand NBA Players are ruining the advertisement of what the NBA is trying to provide, but the NBA Playoffs is an even bigger advertisement for NBA fans. Teams are in competition to win NBA Championships and resting their Star Players would avoid injuries, so that they could be effective in NBA Playoffs. Once that playoff spot is secured, the coaches should rest their players and give the 3rd or 2nd Unit opportunity to showcase their skills. As stated earlier in this paragraph, NBA Stars should avoid getting injured.
Michael Jordan is known as a phenomenal basketball player. However, Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team. With hard work and determination, he made the team and later made it into the NBA. Many people want to achieve their dreams but they don 't want to work hard. Persistence and dedication can allow anyone to accomplish their goals.
This level of play is almost exactly the same as high school but the competition is better. The last level of play is NBA, or the National Basketball Association. This is the hardest level of play, and the hardest to get to. The NBA is the professional division of basketball and the players get payed millions of dollars to play. These are the different levels of
People who are 18 and older are more mature and make better decisions and know what 's best for them and for others. First, 16 and 17 year old should not be allowed to vote because they are not mature enough to make big decisions in their life’s. The article “ Takoma Park 16-year old savor his history- making moment at the polls”” by “Annys shin” says “..... county community the nation’s first to lower the voting age from 18 to 16”. This is a bad idea because some students make bad choices and if they vote their going to do the same thing. The same article writes “but Miller doesn 't have his driver 's license yet”(Shin 2).
Whenever teenager’s dropout they assume that school is pointless and they can go get a job and start making money, but this will not help them in the future. Since teens have a careless mindset, the should not be allowed to decide whether they will drop out of school or not. Although a grant that teens are extremely independent and somewhat capable of making their own decisions, I maintain that they are careless and immature because research has shown that their brains are still developing. During adolescences, a child’s prefrontal and cerebral cortex are still developing. The prefrontal cortex plays a key role in decision making; as a result, teens are not skilled in making good decisions.
Although one might say attending college is a good thing, it can also be a bad thing. Parents can be proud of their kids for going to college, but some think college is not worth the time and benefits. Parents work really hard for this money and what happens if the student fails and drop out from college. What happens if you don’t do well in college and you don’t get a degree. Some parents think earning a college degree is useless especially if they are paying for your tuition.
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.
If the player skips it, and they fail to get into the sport they want, then that’s their fault. The player chose to risk it, and that risk gave a bad ending. But to some people, college is too much of a risk. For example, if someone gets into a college team, but then they get a injury that does some permanent damage, then the player’s future may be ruined, or if the player does get into the NBA/NFL, they are probably going to earn less than if they had never gotten injured. Also, to some people, college is a waste of time.
A senior in college sports has no pay rate, and a rookie in professional sports can earn a multi-million dollar contract. The difference can be a one-year gap. College athletes are not allowed to be paid, but receive a scholarship instead. Many college athletes do not put the scholarships to good use, they often end up with low paying jobs after school, and colleges have lots of money to fund pay for athletes. If there is absolutely no way a college athlete can be paid, there are different solutions such as colleges helping students to focus on education more than playing sports.
In “ High School Athletes Should Be Able to Go Pro”, Pitino addresses the rule of having to be 19 to enter the draft. And how he thinks you should be able to go pro straight out of high school. Rick states that he had 6 guys commit to him but didn 't go they went straight to the NBA. Because they didn 't want college they wanted to start making their living. And gives a resolution if the league didn 't want them to go straight there.
Advocates for the NCAA claim that student athletes should not get paid because academics come first and sports are extra-curricular activities. However, the statistics do not back up the NCAA’s core values. For example, the NCAA Basketball Tournament requires up to 6 missed classes, many nationally televised games are played on weeknights, and this year the Florida State football team missed the first day of spring classes due to the national championship. Obviously, the NCAA is very concerned with the education of student athletes but it also seems as if the NCAA puts increasing revenue and publicity ahead of the importance of
