I think they should because if you love Basketball so much and its your passion what will happen if you give up on it. 2 when you are still a kid you like a lot of things but as you get older you might like just 1 thing.

If your not ready to go to the NBA then you should wait and go to college. I know some players like LeBron and Kobe were good coming out of high school but not all players are like them.

When you join a basketball team then you will have more practice and get better at what you are doing because you have to and I mean have to have good grades in order to play in the NBA and that's just it if you don't get good grades then you cant play until you do.

Con

but even if you have good grades they still shouldn't lower the age for players. just because you practice with the team doesn't mean your going to get better you will be siting on the bench wondering why you can't play in the game

when your older you can get more injuries but when your young you have less injuries and you can have more speed and they train you very well and i did some research on lowering basketball league and more than 50% of people saying that lower should lower basketball league and i looked up how much energy kids have than adults and they said teens/ kids have more so that's my opinion

"Players want to revert back to the pre-2005 rules, where players only had to be 18 years old to declare for the draft. As of now, they must be 19 years old and one year removed from high school graduation". from espn.com. you just lowering the age by one year is not going to make a diffrence and just because you lower the age dosent mean youre ready

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct is a tie because both were respectful, etc. Spelling and grammar is a tie because there wasn?t much of a difference between the two. As for most convincing arguments, this is difficult. Especially when Con quoted a source that proves Pro?s point. However, the reason I am giving the most convincing arguments to Con, is because of this argument, ?but even if you have good grades they still shouldn't lower the age for players. just because you practice with the team doesn't mean your going to get better you will be siting on the bench wondering why you can't play in the game ? That argument is what made him win the most convincing arguments to me. If anything, the kids can still practice and get better on their own and then join the league when they are better instead of wasting their time. As for most reliable sources, it?s a tie. Nobody cited anything (Con quoted something without any citation, he could of just made it up for all we know).
