Sports Sound Off – NBA: No College… No Problem
Many of us know a guy or remember a guy in High School who’s game was dumb sick!!!! Handle, hops, court savvy, jay work, a true man amongst boys. But, all to often like an E! True Hollywood Story there is always something that holds these budding stars from moving beyond there prep stardom.
In the case of Brandon Jennings the super silky smooth PG outta L.A. who has spent the last two years honing his game with the best of his at age group at the famed Oak Hill academy where he was serving the opposition up like a inner city High School substitute. Jennings, was considered by many would have been a top 10 pick in this years NBA draft failed to qualify for his one year deal with the NCAA by not meeting there ACT/SAT required score.
So instead of being the mythological super star that fills every barber shop argument and corner store conversation across America about how much promise there he had.
However, Jennings is bucking the trend of being a “Lost One” and is going were no 18 year has ever been! Turkey!!! To play at least one year of Professional Hoop overseas were he’ll be able to refine his game against real grown man competition in preparation for next summers NBA Draft.
The question is? Is this going to become the newest trend of our young High School stars who fail to achieve the proper scores and grades to attend an NCAA school? Will High School kids now start aiming to get overseas for a quick payday and a chance to groom there skills before they get to the league?
What yall think?
Until Next Time stay Greezy!!!!!!!
