Why shouldn't the top ones skip college? Look at the graduation rates for basketball players at many colleges. Many players aren't in meaningful majors and only attend enough classes to keep their elligibility up.
There is actually a proposal to tie scholarships to elligibility and retention of players.

The NBA needs to stop expanding like crazy, so there won't be so many cruddy teams and players in the NBA. Further, this will definitely improve college ball...and I agree, scholarships should be tied to graduation...or schools that graduate their athletes should get rewarded somehow. Also, they should not count transfers as "non-graduates".
This is off topic, but I'm no longer going to buy Nike. I own a lot of Nike stuff, from shoes to shorts to socks to bags. But with this new 90million Lebron contract, it makes me wonder how wisely they're spending my money when there are accusations of sweat shops worldwide.

let the basketball stars enter nba, give college basketball game back to STUDENT. so we can have chance to put together a team with a phd center, a master point guard,....and so on.
perhaps that is the place where college basketball should be.

there are many old players having been around for many years. new players seldom make it starting lineup, except tim duncan, vince carter,...
yes, cut the nba to 10 teams will definitly help improve the game in short term, but what about long term?
