Many feel this poaching of potential NCAA superstars will destroy the sport. Others believe losing a few elite prospects won't be fatal for college basketball and there is plenty of talent to keep the sport exciting. What do you think? 🏀

The NBA G-League will give elite high school graduates who are not eligible for the NBA Draft $125,000 to come to the G-League and take advantage of multiple programs that run through the NBA infrastructure, preparing young athletes for a career in the pros. Is this going to kill college basketball as we know it?

This move will be a huge blow to the NCAA. Schools will lose talented prospect who would've been superstars in college basketball, killing the product on the court. When the best players don't even go to the college, the overall talent pool diminishes and the quality of game play suffers. 

What kid would want to go to school when they can get over $100,000 and work toward their dream straight out of high school? This is the beginning of the end of college basketball.

G-League life isn't exactly the NBA. Players have red-eye flights, long bus rides and less than glamorous conditions in dingy motels. They're also not playing to sold-out stadiums. 

Elite NCAA athletes get spoiled with state-of-the-art facilities, chartered jets and the admiration of everyone around campus. College basketball might not even lose top talent if it sells the experience right. Even if colleges lose a few prospects here and there, nothing can replace the unpredictability and excitement of the sport. The NCAA will be fine.
