As a passionate Certified Trainer, my role is to motivate, enable and make training a fun and rewarding experience. I love to see my clients achieve their personal health and fitness goals, through a tailored approach of regular fitness activities and guided fitness programs. Time and time again, I’m reminded of the positive effects exercise has on my own physical and psychological well-being, and my appreciation for what our bodies and minds can achieve is ever increasing. I use my experience from sports to help clients achieve the goals they have set for themselves and more. I believe the key to this success is by building a solid foundation from the beginning. I am passionate about using correct form, proper technique, and injury prevention in a fun environment. I believe that we all, regardless of our current conditioning, are able to achieve the goals that we have for ourselves. With consistency and perseverance, anything is possible.

Make it 20. Give them a chance to get an education. The D league has plenty of good players. It's a small percentage that make it. All the others are thrown out to where ever they can play. If you can't spell the city and state you come from, that might be a problem. 18 and playing basketball for 50k a year and 40% goes to agent 25% goes to other things like entourage. You're left with nothing.

Keeping 19 year olds in school when they have the opportunity to make millions for themselves Instead of millions for the NCAA. Good job. The NCAA is a joke anyways.

I think it’s simple. No one should be able to tell an ADULT where to play BASKETBALL. If he is recognized as an adult under the law he should get to act like an adult and choose where to play f’in BASKETBALL. Everything has to have an excessive amount of red tape.

Great idea, half the league can't form a complete sentence or speak in true English form. Now we can up that to 75 percent. Great job! Money over education!

This is simple. You allow them to be drafted at 18. Once drafted the drafting team has 3 years of exclusive signing rights. If the kids decided to go to college they are allowed to as they are not professionals yet. The teams can sign them at any time and once signed they are no longer eligible to play college ball.

The top guys will go to the NBA immediately. The 2nd/3rd round guys can go to college and develop under elite coaches. It works in hockey there's no reason it can't in basketball.

Needs to be 21. Make then kids grow up. No 18 year old is responsible enough to handle that life. Plus they need to let there body's grow and age. If they are not responsible enough to drink legally, then they should get an education.

Just allow them to go to college if they don’t get drafted. Pretty simple.

Kobe & Lebron came in at 18 were fine. Let the 18 year olds play instead of going to college first they never finish college anyway.

Going to college has nothing to do with getting an education. We all know that. Most players come out before their senior year anyways. It's to help bridge the gap of playing in front of 400 people in a high school gym to playing in front of 20k people. From living with your parents to making a 100 million dollars and have the media hounding your every move. Marshawn Lynch said it best after being criticized for some dumb mistakes he made as a rookie"imagine having nothing and then having it all... I would like to see the mistakes they (media, public) would make." Look it's not about the schooling we all know that. It's about maturity.
