I like that idea, but it doesn't make practical sense to me. In foreign leagues they do something similar with putting guys on loan no? however, it basically kills the facade of student athlete, it creates a disparity for the genders, also will put too many hands in the kitchen perhaps. If Lakers take Ball and want him at UCLA and want him to work on his scoring but UCLA needs him to pass the ball around to win, then there are competing odds. If the NBA wants Ayton shooting 3's, but Arizona needs him to be a behemoth inside, then who wins?
Part of the appeal he’s doing away with the fallacy of the student athlete
There’s already so much money and so much disparity in so much gender bias going on in college sports that destroying the whole system is the best thing that can happen to it.
As far as the practicality of how a player plays, I think that would just fall on the coach of the college team. There’s influence I’m sure between the NBA and the G league coaching styles but if you opt to leave your player in college then you’re on the risks and rewards that come with that. He gets trained by these great coaches but also runs the risk of learning style that isn’t yours and an injury.
I feel like years ago teams used to draft players that would then come into the NBA years later. I think we drafted bill Bradley before he came to the NBA by several years
destroying the system that we have means that guys like coach K are not going to be coaching college since revenue will tank.
That’s fine too
I have mad respect for guys like Coach K and all they’ve done for sports at the same time they have been getting rich on unpaid labor from these kids for decades
If they can’t make that money anymore I’m not gonna shut a tear
I’m of the mindset that the people doing the actual work, taking the actual risk, and providing the actual entertainment deserve the lion share of the profit
Sure Coach K is amazing and he’s able to teach like crazy and there will be a market for that but maybe It’s not using unpaid labor getting colleges incredibly rich
