Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, came out swinging against the NCAA on Sunday. He gave ESPN an earful about how he thinks NBA prospects are better off attending the NBA Development League instead of spending one season in college.
Under the current rules, NBA prospects have to be at least 19 years old and be one year out of high school. Cuban said, “The NCAA rules are so hypocritical, there’s absolutely no reason for a kid to go [to college], because he’s not going to class [and] he’s actually not even able to take advantage of all the fun because the first semester he starts playing basketball. So if the goal is just to graduate to the NBA or be an NBA player, go to the D-League.”
