NCAA getting some competition in basketball

Recommended Posts

I don't see how this is successful.  It's basically a minor league.  The Baseball College Word Series, for instance, is much bigger than minor league baseball.  People identify with their schools and root for them regardless of players.  No one cares if a high school player goes to some random league for a year before heading to the NBA.  The G league has proven than no one cares about minor leagues.

there are a lot of drafted baseball players who play in the minors and don't play college ball at all.  I think that is a point.  People who care are local and that is fine.

They may get paid, but it’s not the same level of exposure that college gives.  Zion Williamson wouldn’t have as much endorsement money as he currently has if he played in the G League over Puke. 🤮
