It's a great read. I really like this point he makes:
I could suggest Stephenson and Crawford stick around. But I'm not them. I'm the suburban kid who loved college, and couldn't imagine leaving. I didn't have a child to support and a family who saw me as a potential ATM. I wasn't told at an early age that someday I'd be a millionaire, hooping it up. Lance Stephenson isn't at Cincinnati anymore. He's training somewhere, to be a pro. He doesn't have to worry about staying eligible or getting to an 8 o'clock class or how another college year might impact his future. His future is now.
This is a similar thought that I have had over the years: college is the best time in one's life (or that's what all my elders tell me, and I must admit as I approach graduation in a few days, I am thinking I'll be one of those people too), and these guys just flock to leave it behind. But then, as the writer says, they have so many other considerations and guaranteed money coming their way.
