    Thank God!
    Wish him the best of luck! Hope he finds a NBA team and is able to stick with them for a nice career.

    I am with UKMF on all that he has posted above. I don't see Briscoe increasing his draft status by staying at UK so why not make money while you can.

    I'm sure he will be starting in the D-League for someone

He has no shot of playing in the NBA, he needs to get his diploma.
    I agree with this.
    What I've heard is is simply doesn't enjoy the college experience other than basketball. He's willing to take a chance on the draft or look elsewhere.

    Over a lifetime, No I do not.

    I agree with you especially if he plays in the D-League where the top salary in the 3 tier structure is only $25k a year. The D-League has a salary cap of $170k and only 5 players on a roster can be tier A which is the $25k.

    I think he ends up overseas, and if he plays 8-10 years he can always return for a degree.

    We're not talking about a lifetime. We're talking about playing basketball for a few years either in the D-League or Europe, making several hundred thousand dollars in the process, then getting a "normal" job after the fact.

    You don't think he'll make more money doing that than playing for free for two more years and then getting a normal job?

    To put it in perspective. Antwain Barbour is still playing overseas. Last I heard he was also still making over $100K.

    And I'm pretty sure those salaries are not taxed.

    That's what I've always been told.

    I know a few guys who have made a pretty nice living at this.

    Not sure, but it is not much. Like I am thinking less than $30,000.
