Something Important Is Happening - NBA, NCAA Cooperating Again, To Raise Age Limit

Two announcements in two days?  Somehow, the NCAA and the NBA, two organizations which have basically competed for players, are ready to call for the NBA to not draft players until they're two years out of high school.  Apparently, the league is alarmed by the immature players it's been snapping up who have a distinct lack of fundamentals, not to mention maturity.  Add this to Monday's reformation of youth basketball, and this is an absolutely huge week for the game.

It still has to be approved by the union, but things are on the right track.  At last.
