If you’re a fan of basketball, college or NBA, you have heard the phrase ‘One-and-Done’. One-and-Done is a rule in the NBA bylaws that requires players to be one year removed from high school graduation in order to enter the NBA Draft. The period of time since the implementation of this rule is often referred to as the “One-and-Done Era” of college basketball. Elite prospects go to college with the intention of only staying for the one year required to qualify for the NBA draft. This has changed basketball in both the NCAA and the NBA, as well as sent a handful of players overseas to play professionally for that year. How will this era be remembered? How has basketball changed over this generation as a result of One-and-Done players?
Afi and Kyle take a look back at the impact in the latest episode of Roll The Tape.
