FSLF Blogroll Feature: Basketball Amateurs and the NBA Draft

FSLF Blogroll Feature: Basketball Amateurs and the NBA Draft

In the upcoming Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law, Warren Zola of Boston College’s Carrol School of Management details the history of basketball amateurism and assesses the current legal framework which governs when amateur basketball players decide to enter the NBA Draft.  Zola then offers several proposals to address what he sees as the shortcomings of the current system.  Any college basketball or NBA fan interested in labor law will find the article informative, as there are many insights into the history of the NBA, particularly the development of the players’ union and the changing norms of the amateur draft.
