From the Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204621904574248282288269744.html)

"One system that prepares young American players for the pros, the Amateur Athletic Union, is, by most accounts, broken. Without a rigid minor-league system like baseballís or the extra seasoning football players get in college, Americaís basketball gems increasingly get their training from teams affiliated with the Amateur Athletic Union, a vast national youth-basketball circuit that has groomed many of the sportís top stars."

That is another reason I don't mind X not going after the one and dones. They would not fit into our system because they don't learn how to play defense. Our guys at least come in knowing if they don't play hard at both ends of the court, they don't play. The article was a good read, reps to you.

I'm actually more impressed by the fact that Muskie is closing in on 4000 post mark. You sir really know how to waste time on a message board, the rest of us are just amatures.

One of the few times I've actually laughed out loud while reading XH was after seeing this post. Nice.
