In a piece for Grantland, awesome white-person Steve Kerr convincingly breaks down why teenagers shouldn’t be allowed to play in the NBA. Best pull-quote:
True story: I once had an extremely young teammate ask me when our Christmas break was. He then became visibly shocked and saddened after learning that we didn’t get to go home for a week or so. Another time, a different young player asked me how the NBA’s playoff format worked. We entered the first round of the postseason and he had no idea what “best of 5″ meant. These were players who were ready to be professional athletes?
Also, all Kerr (a former GM, current TNT analyst and 15-year NBA veteran) has in his ‘author description’ is “Steve Kerr is a five-time NBA champion.” Baller.
