    They get a free education..if they want it and in this instance at an elite school.
    They get the very best in training for their future job
    They get boat loads of exposure to future employers
    They get the best in medical treatment

    And in many cases the university only gets them for one year. I think it’s a fair trade

    Moses Malone, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Amare Stoudemare, and Lebron James did not need College ball and would have lost big paydays, if forced to attend college. Not just first contract, but a delay in reaching the more lucrative second contract as well. Even Kwame Brown faired better going straight to pros rather than being exposed in college and losing his top draft choice status

    Their big payout would have been postponed one year.

    You failed to mention the much greater number of kids that went straight to the NBA and failed miserably. Also, you have no idea that Kwame wouldn't have been dominant at UF.
