College KIDS: This is a great article I think we forget that college players don't all play NBA even in Div 1 schools and that these boys no matter how talented would have spent over half their teenage life shooting jumpshots to maybe never shoot them again. I know its golf time and NFL draft, but damn it I'm a hoops junkie i need a fix and the NHL ain't on and the NBA bores me, bring on the WNBA please something ..... damn or i will have to watch arena football.

bballcoachreid, it is a fine article, and I agree with your point. I bet I'm not the only one. But. You might get more reaction from the punters here if you break your sentences up a little bit. Your posts are these masses of words that don't pay a ton of attention to the rules of grammar or syntax, which makes them a little harder to read. The point that article makes, about how the vast majority of student athletes never get a fat contract or a shoe endorsement from their time in university, but rather a sense of pride in where they came from and a structure they can apply to the rest of their lives, is a very good one. Thanks for the link.
