...exposure. That theory is a myth.

"I also must ask, why are these kids going to college anyway? I understand the draft eligibility rules for the NBA, but does it mean that a student-athlete must play in front of large crowds? If you are good, the pro scouts will find you. And if you play basketball, you know who you are when you are a high school sophomore. Why not play in an environment that you believe is best for you? And in this current social climate, these Black students are discovering that they will be nurtured, both emotionally and physically, on an HBCU campus."
