dc.description.abstract In 2005, the NBA rolled out a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) raising NBA eligibility to 19 years old. This essentially ensured that NBA prospects had to attend college for at least one year before joining the NBA. Previously, draft prospects could enter the NBA directly from high school. My study primarily is on the impact this rule has on the players effected (those who could have went to the NBA straight from high school) – they are called the “one and done players” for the purpose of my study. I go on to analyze how and if the rule has affected performance and salary over the lengths of these players’ careers. And I end my thesis by detailing the controversy behind the rule, a high school prospect’s decision-making process should the rule be eliminated, and what is ultimately going to be done regarding the rule. The study aims to give monetary and social context for the rule’s effect on the basketball world and insight as to what could and should be done about it.
