Staying in college is dumb, if you could be a 1st round pick

    I have the right to express my opinion. My opinion is someone like Barkley who was a consensus top5 selection in the 2012 draft is an idiot for returning for his senior season risking millions of dollars.

    It really is extremely ingenious. I like the system and don't think it's as exploitative as some make it sound.

    There is no guarantee Barkley would have been top 5 last year. Heck, based on where he was picked this year vs projected this year, I very much doubt he would have been a top 5 pick, let alone first round.

    It depends on what you want to do I guess. Financially it may not make sense, but most players who do this come from rich families anyways.
