NBA Age Limit

  1. Coach K complains about one-and-done rule. Shocking.

    Michigan v Duke

    Know this about Mike Krzyzewski — he likes to be in control of things. He may not be obsessive and overbearing about it like some coaches, but he likes things done his way. And when it comes to college basketball and the one-and-done rule, he has no control. Nobody does. John Calipari may have figured…

  2. Mark Cuban would like to see NBA age limit increased, too

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    A. Owners love the idea of a higher age limit in the NBA — it gives them more time to see how a player matures, allows more time to scout them so taking the player is less of a gamble, and it lets the NCAA do a couple years of marketing to create names for…

  3. PBT Extra: Talking age limit — why the owners want two years

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    On today’s edition of PBT extra you can comment on my opinion that the owners want two years but that it’s not fair to the handful of players who are truly ready to make the leap from high school (I want a system like college baseball), or Andrew Bynum and him needing to grow up.…

  4. David Stern takes a shot at the NCAA when asked about “one and done” players in college basketball

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:28 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Weekend

    David Stern has some ideas about how to solve the problem of so-called “one and done” players at the college level — you know, guys who go to school for just one year simply because the NBA’s age limit makes it impossible to declare for the draft straight out of high school. But they aren’t…

  5. Should the NBA age limit go up? One more year? Two?

    Interesting tweet Thursday from Mike Rice, the college basketball coach at Rutgers (via Pete Thamel of the New York Times): I keep hearing NBA owners want to adopt same rule as NFL. Players will have to wait 3 yrs to enter the draft. I am not mentioning this because I trust the coaches sources, but…

  6. Tyson Chandler no fan of the NBA’s age limit

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Tyson Chandler jumped straight from high school to the NBA, the No. 2 overall pick in 2001. He and Eddy Curry were going to be the future of the Knicks. I don’t need to remind you how that went. Chandler is why the owners like the age limit — he has developed into a very…

  7. Kareem thinks the NBA age limit should be 21

    May 13, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    Right now, you have to be 19 to be drafted into the NBA (your high school graduating class has to be one year removed plus you need to be 19 by the end of the year). David Stern has suggested that he’d like to see that number at 20. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says he’d like it…
