As the result of the Tim Floyd "situation" @ USC ... Tony Kornheiser of ESPN's PTI pointed out that that NBA's policy of requiring a draftee to have been one (1) year & one (1) day away from their graduation glass, he noted that Coach K of Duke indicated that the NBA's policy was an obvious failure !!!   

I guess this explains why John Wall is @ Kentucky and not @ Duke ... and why there was nothing firm to link Coach K to making a concerted effort to recruit the kid !!!

I also affirms my contention that the NBA was trying to make college the "Wet Nurses" of the NBS !!!

Is there a better authority in college basketball than Coach K to affirm this philosophical and practical wrong minded situation created by David Stern ???
