The Chicago Bulls

A Chris Bosh reference with regard to the Bulls, and how they have chosen to draft players with college experience and not the high school phenoms:

Part of the Bulls' recent strategy has been to draft more experienced young players. Their point guard, Kirk Hinrich, played four years at Kansas, while Gordon played three at Connecticut, and even Deng benefited from his single season at Duke, similar to how the Raptors' Chris Bosh got at least some growing up done in his single season at Georgia Tech.

It's funny. In some ways, players who stayed in college more than 2 years were starting to get a bad rap. You know - why aren't they good enough to leave early. But the tide is changing there for sure. With a 20-year old age limit, things could really change.
