Why is there dark sides in NCAA basketball recruitment? (Part 1)

There are dark sides to the usual hiring process in college-level basketball in the US and Canada. Where do they come from?

The College Athletes Association (NCAA) is a non-profit organization, but its structure is completely different from the mere collegiate systems of sports in many countries. The association includes nearly 1300 organizations, regions, and individuals represented. This is the venue for tournaments and sports programs of many colleges and universities in the US and Canada with more than 450,000 student-athletes.

In 2014, the NCAA generated nearly $ 1 billion in revenue, of which 80 – 90% came from the Division I men’s basketball tournament. It can be seen that once basketball has generated such a large cash flow, it must be well There are many hidden problems in it.

Basketball is the main revenue driver for NCAA

Every year, the basketball tournaments of NCAA receive the main money from sponsorship from big corporations such as LG, Unilever, Nissan, and sports fashion brands and of course, television royalties. In terms of image, organization model and player quality play the most important role to create the attraction for the NCAA.

Basketball is the main revenue driver for NCAA

Because of that, the top basketball talents are of great value in the market because they generate different revenues for the NCAA. A qualified high school student can make a college that owns him an incredible benefit both in terms of brand and money.

Looking further, the usual path for good players will be towards entering the NBA. Once joining the world’s No. 1 tournament, his income and reputation are once again fully exploited by not only sports companies but also quite a few other service companies or organizations.

NBA stars, for example, are bound to become prospects for major shoe companies, financial planners, numerous apparel companies, real estate agents, car and personal vehicle salesman, and also weekly magazines, etc.

NCAA proposed to increase the age limit for the NBA Draft (Part 2)

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver also announced that he is proposing to increase the draft age limit to 20 and wants it to be applied soon in the future. Commissioner Adam Silver is proposing to increase the draft age limit to 20 and expect it to apply soon in the future.

Commissioner Adam Silver is proposing to increase the age limit for drafting to 20 The NCAA also has a lot of benefits from the increasing age to attend the NBA Draft. They will keep more talented players in the league longer. The attractiveness and competition of the tournament will also increase. This brings with it a series of benefits from television rights, ticket sales…

In 2005, Coach Carter officially premiered based on the true story of Coach Ken Carter. The film tells the current situation of American high school basketball in the early years of the 21st century onwards. The advent of the movie also significantly influenced the decision to change the draft system of the NBA a year later.

Since 2006, young players will not be eligible to enter the NBA Draft without graduating from high school. The regulations also state that players will only be able to participate in the NBA Draft after graduating from high school after one year and must be at least 19 years old on paper.

The NCAA is a good environment for talented students

The NCAA is a good environment for the players to show their talents to the NBA scouts The NCAA is a good environment for the players to show their talents to the NBA scouts The NCAA Student Tournament thus also becomes the best competitive environment for players to show off to the scouts in the NBA.

A few players choose to play professionally in Europe or China after graduating from high school, for example, Brandon Jennings and Emmanuel Mudiay. The above-complicated rules were born in the hope of helping players create a foundation for a better future life.

Many players, after retiring, do not know what to do because they do not have a university degree. An NBA player can make millions of dollars to make ends meet after two years of playing. The vast majority of people spend wastefulness so that after retirement, they do not have a penny.

The number of players in the NBA league who went bankrupt within 5 years of retiring reached 60%, according to statistics. How to live after the end of a professional footballer’s life is worth talking about.

NCAA proposed to increase the age limit for the NBA Draft (Part 1)

Given the player and tournament issues, the NCAA seems to have found a common voice with the NBA about raising the NBA Draft age limit to 20.

Given the quality of the players and the competitive edge of the tournament, the NCAA seems to have found a common ground with the NBA about raising the NBA Draft’s age limit to 20.

What are the benefits of the NBA and the NCAA?

NCAA is planning to propose raising the age limit for players to attend draft to 20 instead of 19 as before. With evidence that the players who spent many years playing in the NCAA (including the 2016 MVP – Stephen Curry and most recently Westbrook) entered the top 10 MVP elections for the last two years.

The NCAA further points out that only 16% of the players still competed in the NBA in the first year of college. Lebron James and Kevin Durant are the only two players still competing (only one year in college and going straight from high school) to ever win the MVP title for the season.

Kevin Durant only attended a year in college before going to NBA Kevin Durant only attended a year in college before going to the NBA The NCAA knows that viewers watch the NBA because of the stars, but the teams there has a hard time dominating the league with just one star.

The NBA will benefit greatly if it agrees to increase the age of eligibility for the draft from 19 to 20

The NBA will benefit greatly if it agrees to increase the age of eligibility for the draft from 19 to 20. Young talents will develop steadily in their skills, thinking, and experience when competing in a medium-sized environment like the NCAA.

Getting into the NBA too early can be dangerous for a player in his mid-twenties

If they can overcome the overwhelming pressure and competitiveness, the young players will stretch or at least meet their expertise to play in the NBA.

In the worst-case scenario, the young players will fail to overcome the pressure and be eliminated from the world number one tournament. The NBA understands this and also expects the players to have at least two years playing on a lower system. Then the world’s number one tournament will have a chance to get more good players instead of just potential players.

Why is the number 69 banned in the NBA and NCAA? (Part 2)

Many have compared NCAA’s shirt selection rules (student-level basketball tournament system in the US) to explain this. NCAA players must not use 6, 7, 8 and 9 tail numbers in dozens. This is a rule that college basketball players in America have to follow for many years.

Unwritten Law

In contrast to the NBA, the NCAA has specific rules regarding the use of jerseys.

Specifically, the numbers that are counted as valid include 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 00, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 30 , 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54 and 55. In addition, a team is not allowed to own the same number of shirts 0 and 00.

This makes the numbers from 6 to 9, 16 to 19, 26 to 29, 36 to 39, 46 to 49 and greater than 55 never appear in the NCAA. According to the New York Times, the NCAA has adhered to this number selection principle since the 1960s.

This partly explains that the number of shirts 69 has never appeared in NBA history. Professional basketball players usually keep the number of shirts they chose when they were young. There are very few cases of changing the shirt number. Having to adhere to the shirt selection rules from the NCAA level seems to impact the NBA.

According to the Los Angeles Times, there are very few NBA players who choose a number of shirts with a number between 6 and 9. Although the NBA is not too strict and players are chosen from 0 to 99.

The explanation

Another explanation is that the number of shirts involved in the referee’s hand operation when blaming the player. NBA rules in particular and basketball in general require that the referees must use both hands to announce the offender’s shirt number. The use of players with a tail number of 6, 7, 8 and 9 in the dozens will make it difficult for the referee team to report an error.

This explanation is less convincing when many NBA players are using the number of shirts including 6, 7, 8 and 9 in dozens. Even 2 players Jae Crowder and Tacko Fall used the number 99.

From the above explanations, the number of why the number 69 does not appear in the NBA is still a big mystery. Although the number 69 has never appeared on NBA courts, it has always attracted fans’ curiosity and curiosity.

Why is the number 69 banned in the NBA and NCAA? (Part 1)

The number 69 has never appeared on the back of any player in the history of the American Professional Basketball League (NBA).

Throughout the history of more than 70 years, NBA has been through generations of players, but no one wears the number 69 shirt. Many rumors are woven when talking about the number 69 from feng shui elements, unlucky to sensitive meaning.

The NBA has never confirmed or issued a law banning players from choosing a number 69. However, the tournament once prevented a player from choosing the number 69. That person is basketball legend Dennis Rodman.

The jersey number 69 is rejected by the NBA and NCAA

In his final NBA season, Rodman decided to join the Dallas Mavericks. The 6-time NBA champion initially chose the number 69. Even Mavericks president Mark Cuban had some of Rodman’s 69-printed shirts on and kept until today.

Dennis Rodman has an average of 14.3 rebounds after 12 games in the last NBA season.

Rodman was then not allowed to wear the number 69. NBA president David Stern then refused to let the number 69 appear for the first time in history. “The NBA rejected the number 69. Rodman decided to choose the number 70. 69 + 1,” added journalist Marc Stein of the New York Times.

The late President David Stern is the great president of the NBA with many reforms and great contributions to making the tournament popular worldwide. He once stopped Chris Paul from joining the Los Angeles Lakers, despite the deal being completed.

The reason given by David Stern was “related to basketball.” At that time the Lakers were very strong under the guidance of the late Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul’s joining will make the tournament unbalanced.

If David Stern had a reason for stopping Chris Paul from joining the Lakers, then the refusal to let Rodman use the number 69 was not clear. The NBA or David Stern have never explained why Rodman was not allowed to use the number 69 in the last season of his career.
