Cincinnati.Com Cincinnati Enquirer Paul Daugherty »: "Think about it: Amateur Athletic Union programs sweep up the most promising players just as they are getting started and have them playing 80 games a summer when they should be developing their skills. By high school, they are serving two masters: their school team and their club team. Different coaches, different teammates. Where does their loyalty lie? When it’s all about getting to “the next level,” what do teammates matter?
College is a one-and-done experience, or two years at most, for pretty much any player with realistic N.B.A. aspirations. If a player sticks around any longer, he starts hearing talk that there must be something wrong with him."
