    Do you want to ford the river, or caulk the wagon and float across?

    Apparently he'll have unlimited practice time and a team of trainers and and cooks at his ready. Or he'll eat at the Peppermill buffet. Same thing...

    The wagon tipped over while floating. You lost:

    8 sets of clothing
    2 wagon wheels
    1 wagon axel
    11 pounds of food
    32 bullets

    How many kids need to go picks 18-30 and flame out of the league inside 3 years before kids start to notice and change their way of thinking.

    A player can't exactly control where he's selected, and 18-30 does come with guaranteed two-year money. The alternative would be rolling the dice and hoping to appreciably improve your position by returning, which is by no means a certainty in most cases.

    Anyhow, it's sort of ridiculous to say any of these guys have "flamed out" in January of their rookie year, no matter what is going on.

    At least he'll make a pretty penny for a few years. I honestly don't blame him or Ennis for leaving early. I didn't think either guy was a particularly good NBA prospect; they both went higher than I expected them to, so in that sense, they did well for themselves. Malachi definitely had more reason to come back than Ennis did, though if Malachi didn't show a lot of improvement in his sophomore year, his draft stock probably would have cratered. There aren't many teams that are looking for a guy that scores at an inefficient rate while providing nothing else.

    I think both got out at/near the peak value of their draft stock. Richardson could have moved himself into the lottery if he came back and had a big season, but that was far from a sure thing. I can't fault either for their decisions. NBA GM's nowadays look at a Junior in college as old and fundamentally flawed in some way. That's not how it used to be, but that's the environment these players are working with now. You have to get while the gettin's good.

    You know, back when players stayed in college and used all of their eligibility, a lot of guys still flamed out within 3 years.
