Has there ever been a NBA finals with more than 4 players who went to the NBA straight out of high school. This year, Kobe, Rashard Lewis, Bynum and Howard. Does this mean the 19 year old and one year out of high school rule should be removed? I read somewhere that a member of congress wants an explanation from Stern as to why the rule was created. I disagree with the rule but understand it. The college fans will follow John Walls career from UK. to the NBA, but probably would not be as interested if he came straight out of high school. With this reason in mind, we all know those that came straight out of High school. I think the rule needs to go away.
