Why Adam Silvers comments on the one-and-done rule miss the mark

Why Adam Silvers comments on the one-and-done rule miss the mark

NBA commissioner Adam Silver joined FS1s The Herd with Colin Cowherd for a wide-ranging discussion on the state of the NBA on Wednesday.

And while issues such as super teams and resting players are always hot-button, Silvers most intriguing response may have come following a question on the one and done rule. The rule, which states that players must be one year removed from high school before entering the NBA Draft went into place in 2006, and was basically re-approved during the latest round of collective bargaining last year.

But even though the one-and-done rule will be in place for at least a few more years, Silver is at least reconsidering his stance. Heres what he told Cowherd:



Our historical position since we raised the age from 18 to 19 was that we want to go from 19 to 20, and the unions position is they want to go from 19 to 18.

In the last round of collective bargaining, Michele Roberts and I both agreed Lets get through these core economic issues in terms of renewing the collective bargaining agreement, and then turn back to this age issue. Because its one I think we need to be more thoughtful on, and not just be in an adversarial position, sort of under the bright lights of collective bargaining.
