Raiders News · Should High School Basketball Players Be Able to Declare for the NBA Draft? – Presented by VNN


lebron-dunkAs Americans, we tend to fall in love with our rising stars who are breaking out on the national stage at a young age.  At 18, all eyes were on Patrick Kane as he started his professional hockey career with the Chicago Blackhawks. Nobody blinked twice when MLB’s Bryce Harper was selected to the National League All-Star team at 19.  Likewise, there were no calls for the U.S. Men’s National Team to pump the brakes on budding soccer star Christian Pulisic when he scored his first goal for the Stars & Stripes at the young age of 17.

Yet, in basketball, most of the top high school talent is required to follow the controversial “one & done” trend. As the rule goes, an athlete needs to be at least 19 years old to be eligible for the NBA Draft, forcing all hopeful pros into at least one year in college or a European League. The policy, instituted in the NBA CBA in 2005, was aimed at yielding more developed and matured players as draft options, instead of seeing teams draft solely on raw talent and potential, and stashing those prospects away on their bench.

 

Over the last decade, this rule has been a nonstop point of discussion and debate. Many appreciate the importance this rule places on attending higher education, and further developing professional skills. In addition, many college programs can benefit from knowing that the prospects they are recruiting will indeed commit to a school, rather than decide to forgo college altogether. Conversely, however, many have questioned whether forcing the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Ben Simmons and Anthony Davis to go to college for a year is really thmaxresdefaulte right path for top-level talent. The careers of Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James might say no. In addition, the one-and-done phenomenon sees many top players in and out of a college faster than you can say “Karl-Anthony Towns,” rendering a college game that is often focused more on individual showcases and annual ‘big names,’ rather than cheering for programs that see players develop over 3 or 4 years. This controversy is especially relevant, as current NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recently stated at the beginning of this year’s NBA Finals that “We all agreed we need to make a change . . . It’s one of those issues we need to come together and study. … My sense is, It’s not working for anyone.” (read more on Silver’s statement) Such a change could be to do away with the rule altogether, or amend it to have caveats, such as requiring those who choose to go to college to stay at least 2 years or those who choose to turn professional out of high school to spend a year in the G-League.

So, what do you think? Should the NBA change their age requirement and allow basketball players to turn professional fresh out of high school?

Should the NBA Allow High School Athletes to Declare for the Draft?

Yes! High Schoolers should be able to be drafted.
No. High Schoolers should be required to go to college first before playing in the NBA

Raider Fans/Parents:

The Wapahani Spring is moving quickly as we wind down the school year.  The WHS Raider Athletic Teams are off to great starts on the field, track, court, and golf course.  We are nearing the month of May where each team begins to compete for Delaware County, MEC, and Sectional Championships.
The Raider Golf Team led by Senior Levi Estep has shown tremendous growth already in the short season.
The WHS Baseball Teams are working hard and representing our school with class.  The JV team is currently undefeated after defeating Anderson last night while the Varsity Team had 2 great wins last week vs Yorktown and Cowan.
The Varsity Softball Team started slow but has really picked it up over the last 2 weeks with great wins last week over the Delta Eagles, Union Rockets, and Winchester Falcons. The JV Raiders continue to get action and experience as they traveled last Monday to Mississinewa losing 10-1.  The DCAA Softball Tourney will start this week.  Good Luck Gals!
Boys Volleyball is finally off and running. The boys season will go fast after a slow start.  The Raider VB Club will compete in the State Tourney starting May 13th.  Good Luck Guys.
The WHS Boys and Girls Track Teams are off to a great start.  Both teams continue to set PR’s and even school records.  The Boys 4×100 Team actually broke the school record in a time of 46.97.  The team consists of Senior Daxton Stevens, Senior Logan Myers, Freshman Sofani Buck and Sophomore Nick Ireland. The Track Teams are preparing for the DCAA Meet next Friday at Delta.  Good Luck to Both Teams.
