Is UK bad for the NBA? Bad enough to address One-and-Done?

When the NBA tipped off this year 21 former Wildcats were drawing a paycheck on a final roster, some for the first time. Now add in players this year that move up the next year or two plus the masses that will come out of what may be an unprecedented 2013 class. Oh yeah....Seen how 2014 is stacking up? Even with attrition UK will be closing in on 30 players in The League before long.

At what point does an over saturation of one source of players hurt the NBA? Because there is some point at which fans will be turned off watching an alumni game of school they didn't root for, in fact, may have enthusiastically rooted against when watching the college game. For UK fans, it is an incredible time. It's getting close to being able to watch UK basketball seven days a week, sometimes double headers. Would we have started closely following the NBA if a team like, say, ummm, Louisville was rapidly heading to 30? Not me.

So, on the NBA/UK league grows until fans get restless. What recourse would the NBA have to rectify the situation? Of course! Change the One-and-Done rule! Sweet.
