Adrian Wojnarowski pretty Much Just Confirmed College Basketball Players Get Paid

We all knew it anyway.

The NBA G-League ​is attempting to change the game with their new rule to recruit young superstars to the league, however they seem to have overlooked a few things.

The G-League will now offer a $125K contract to any 18-year-old who wishes to skip out on college and go straight into the NBA. However, some are a bit skeptical on the potential success of this new ruling.

Thats a Woj burn right there.

​​There’s no doubt that college ball is going to be far more luxurious than any NBA G-League team.

The G-League is obviously a lesser league than the NCAA as far as lifestyle goes. You can debate whether or not college athletes gets paid, but it’s pretty obvious that some Division I basketball programs provide some sort of compensation, as Woj points out. It’s hard to imagine many 18-year-old kids choosing the G-League lifestyle over college.

Woj isn’t the only one who has qualms with the new rulings.

The ruling seems conceptually great, however in reality, it’s likely to crash and burn.
