JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
I hope that high school hoopers are paying attention to the decisions some of the college players are making about entering the NBA draft.
It’s so important to have the right circle when making a life-changing decision like this.
Sometimes you’re just not ready, and it’s OK.
An NBA GM told me a long time ago, “It’s not about getting to the NBA it’s about staying there.”
Some of these guys are in for a rude awakening.
