About the National Association of Basketball Coaches
Located in Kansas City, MO, the NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men’s basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today’s student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education.

    I miss the old days as well. The NBA's "gain" is sure college ball's loss. Can you imagine what Duke would be like if Parker stayed four years?

    After enough of these kids fail, maybe it will go back or at least have an age and/or two years of school limit. Maybe.

    Not likely to be many repeats next year. Of the fifteen players, seven are seniors. The three freshmen are all projected to go in the top five of the NBA draft.

    There are four sophs. Marcus Smart is a projected lottery pick. Warren and Stauskas are projected mid-first round.

    Junior Nick Johnson, though a first-teamer, is projected as a second round pick, and could elect to stay in school for his senior year. Sophomore Fred VanVleet is the only one you could say is almost sure to stay. At 5'-11" he isn't on anybody's mock draft board.

    So, unless something unexpected happens, 13 of the top 15 players, plus a bunch of underclassmen who didn't even make the coaches' AA team, will be gone from college basketball next year.

    I sure miss the old days.

    I remember Barnes being named 1st team All-American when he was a freshman too, pre-season that is. But then ol' Roy got a hold of him and well.......... the rest, as they say, is history.
