Mark Cuban thinks the NBA should announce every missed call by refs.

Mark Cuban isn’t afraid to say what everyone else is already thinking.

Unless the kid really wants to go to college, they shouldn’t be forced to go and more kids might be better prepared for the pros if they started out in the D-League.

Here is what Cuban had to say.

“The NCAA rules are so hypocritical, there’s absolutely no reason for a kid to go [to college], because he’s not going to class [and] he’s actually not even able to take advantage of all the fun because the first semester he starts playing basketball. So if the goal is just to graduate to the NBA or be an NBA player, go to the D-League.”

“You don’t have to pretend. We don’t have to pretend. A major college has to pretend that they’re treating them like a student-athlete, and it’s a big lie and we all know it’s a big lie. At least at most schools, not all. … But we can put more of an emphasis on their education. We can plan it out, have tutors. We can do all kinds of things that the NCAA doesn’t allow schools to do that would really put the individual first.”
