Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett. Some of the greatest players of all-time came straight out of high school. Not everyone has what those guys had and their decision to skip college and go straight to the NBA did not work out so well. These players should have gone to college, even if just for one year to help them hone their skills and become more mature players. Here are the top 10 NBA players who should have gone to college.
Worst NBA Players Who Skipped College
Early NBA Season Review
Half-dozen games into the season, it is still too proclaim much, there are still observations to make about teams and players. For starters, the New Orleans Pelicans are the worst team in the league. Even with Anthony Davis playing lights out, the team is dreadful. The Pelicans are buried in one of the toughest NBA divisions and a 0-8 start is the kind of mistake that will tank their season before it even hits American Thanksgiving.
Prop bets for MVP are starting to heat up. Most of the early favourites are still great choices, now is the time to grab some value picks before the odds start to reflect their hot starts. Two players to consider are Kawhi Leonard – of the San Antonio Spurs – and DeMar DeRozan – of the Toronto Raptors. Each player was an All-Star last season and helped their teams to second place finishes in their conferences. If they can help their teams to similar results in 2017, one of them may just win their first ever MVP.
The last early season musing has to do with the Los Angeles Lakers. To the shock of fans and bettors alike, the Lakers may actually be good. Three lottery picks in the last three drafts, a deep bench, and no more Kobe Bryant have the Lakers in a playoff spot early in the season. Eight games into the season, the Lakers have five players averaging between 14.5 and 15.5 points per games and have the best-rated bench in the NBA. Even if youth may stumble down the stretch or the veterans may run out of gas, the Lakers are poised to return to the postseason quicker than originally predicted and a fun team to wager on.
