    Suggs was already a top 10 pick going into the league. Did he improve his stock a little bit playing in college? Absolutely. He likely makes the move into the top 5 picks into the draft, but it's not like he went from non lottery pick to top 5 due to college. He was always going to be a high pick.

    Jalen Suggs isn’t getting the biggest shoe contract he has to stop this

    How did college basketball help Cade Cunningham? Losing early can make a top prospect look bad. The G League is taking over sooner rather than later while also NOT standing in the way of the young mans earning potential

    Jalen Suggs has been rated top 5 pick since highschool also top ten pick in football. this is a bad take. you do not need college anymore.

    Men's college basketball is dead. The women's tournament was much more exciting.

    The extra exposure and potential gains still don't justify how the NCAA can profit off of a player's image and likeness while the player him or herself can not. It drives me crazy how people try to minimize a wrong because of an unrelated benefit instead of arguing to fix the wrong.

    Kiminga easily moved up. Jalen Green will have a way bigger deal than Suggs. Suggs is 1 guy tbf, I bet them Kentucky guys wished they took that gleague cash

    Chris Raab please understand this good old boy you talking to never play the game of basketball he's a wannabe that's why he goes to all these tournaments he's a wannabe God and he has no right to talk against but young African-American ballplayers want to do it because he's behind his privileged

    Lamelo is a terrible comparison. He got all that hype because he is lamelo ball. His brother is lonzo and his dad is the ultimate hype man

    If you are physically freakish (Shaq, Lebron, Zion) or extremely skilled (Kyrie), you can skip college. The rest should go to college to prove you can play not only at this level but also have the skills for the next level.It's just like in life. Some people don't need to go to college and sill do very well.

    Lamelo also has a brother that was the #2 pick. A dad that was always on ESPN AND FS1 and a show on facebook. Little different..

    If Suggs is the number 1 pick that GM is gonna get fired! I don’t see any difference in his game and the way Josh Hart played at Villanova! Davion Mitchell is way more talented!

    Chris Broussard is just a holy roller who wants sex and drugs taken out of all of society. He thinks he’s slick by bringing up the hypocracy angle, but he knows damn well the standard is whatever your employer thinks is going to cost them money, can get you fired. He’s been in the game too long to be this naive. For once Rob is correct lol.

    Rob saying “...they love this old model and it’s in their blood and can’t forget it” is ironic.

    Some kids aren't ready to be grown and still wants the structure of school, Tim Duncan could have gone pro after his sophomore and junior yrs but he said he liked school.

    Jennins went to Italy and couldn´t get off the bench. Was drafted #10. Mudiay was ok in China which was not a very good league at that time and went #... Green and Kuminga are going to go top 5 and drive to MSG in their own 911´s... The Suggs shot was amazing but come on... Tyus Edney had the same moment, won a national championship and ended up going #47 in the draft then ended up battling most of his career in Europe with me and a ton of other guys who didn´t have that moment.

    Rob needs to enroll back in some elementary classes due to Rob’s limited vocabulary over & over & over again....“I’m just saying, You know what I mean, That’s all, I’m just saying, You know what I mean, I’m just saying, I got it, Know what I’m saying”

    Don’t get me wrong I definitely think the kids should get paid but as of right now they’re not I’ve never understood the logic of going to the g league or overseas FOR MONEY because if you come from a family that’s broke you’ve been broke your whole life what’s another year gonna hurt? Now if you decide to go to the g league or overseas for other reasons then that’s different but I just never understood the money argument

    Can't compare Lamelo and what he did.. Lavar has had him in the public eye foe several years with the Shoe, 92 point game, pointing from half and hitting the 3 etc..Suggs is Jrue Holiday type guard. Very solid guard, more a winner than anything else. Him going to be a lead guy on a bad team will hurt him. Hope he doesn't end up playing for his hometown Timberwolves

    College football and basketball is nothing but sharecropping. Pay the players, stop being so greedy and get on with it

    It's only the best path if you're not good enough to go right out of high school or be a one-and-done. The fastest path to NBA money is the best path. There's garbage players all over that league that hang around way longer than they should. If you're truly good and have the mindset and dedication to develop, it doesn't matter where you do it but get yourself paid ASAP.

  • OmgJustKeepIt2Virgils _

    Ain't gotta play in NCAA to get paid big. Did Luka do that, no?🤣🤣 it ain't just Lamelo bruh🤔🤔🤌🏾💯

    College basketball is about picking the right school for your skill set. Take B.J Boston who went to Kentucky, basically killing his one and done chances.
