Regardless of how this works out, JS is a guy who will be a success off the court.

Even in today's climate I'm surprised so many guys forego 1+ yrs of college hoops. Obviously if you're Zion it's understandable but if you're more likely headed the overseas route to get any meaningful playing time instead of the NBA, it's still odd IMO. You get a free BA and possibly MA (that most of us common guys are spending a luxury car payment on every month at a minimum) at a nice private school saving you hundreds of thousands and will always be there for you if basketball doesn't work out. You're also the big man on campus and almost any girl(s) will want to be your groupie, you get treated like royalty, stopped for pictures, asked for autographs, the fans love you, national TV, great exposure, etc. Why not enjoy all of that all 4 years? Not talking lottery picks in the NBA...I'm talking guys who only have real options overseas. You simply will not get the fans, the support, the fame, the hype, or exposure overseas for the most part. Even if you make the G League, how many guys swim around there and never really make it out? Even there you don't get the exposure or hype. Who is watching a G League game vs. an NCAA Tourney game or a Big East Tourney game? At the end of the day it's up to the player of course...I just think it's criminal how so many players are acting as if college is not a good enough deal for them.

And of course we all know that there are no single women, new Mercedes, free apartments, great restaurants, local fans, etc. anywhere else but here.

If anything is "criminal", it's the inability to just wish these guys well and move on. Justin by all accounts is about to graduate from college, always gave 100% on the court and represented the school as well as we could have hoped. If he and his family have decided it is time for him to move on, follow his dream and earn a living, there is nothing criminal about it.
