The Crimestopper Gets An Agent

Aaaaand there he goes: Baltimore sensation Aquille Carr has opted to try for pro ball in Europe rather than playing in college and has retained an agent.

Leave aside his ability to compete at the highest levels as a 5-7 point guard for the moment and focus instead on his maturity, which is questionable: aside from beating up his girlfriend, which suggests a definite lack of manhood, Carr will also have to be able to match wits with grown men, agents, a foreign country and language and at the same time refine his game and stay out of trouble, which is easier said than done when you're 17 and making pretty good money and free 21 hours a day or so.

There are many fine reasons to educate yourself, but it's even more important if you have a remarkable skill because everyone is going to try to get a piece of you.

Good luck to him - he's going to need it.
