I started writing about college basketball prior to the 2006-07 season, which was the first year of the NBA’s one-and-done rule. I don’t think the NBA actually calls it that, but the rule prevented basketball players from jumping straight from high school to the pros. The rule has been one of the more controversial moves in recent basketball history. I think anyone who thinks it hasn’t been good for college basketball is wrong. While the best players are only around for one year, that is better than none. Imagine the prestige that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and Korleone Young would have brought to the NCAA. Then consider what players like Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Michael Beasley, and Jereme Richmond have given college hoops.
