His dream is to play ball at the highest level. The first opportunity comes along and he takes it. He comes from a rich family? Then it's not that big of a risk if he somehow fails in the leagu long term . On the flip side he has the resources that most don't have coming into the league to be successful ... I doubt he's top 10 tho if everyone comes out that should be

a million dollar first round pick guaranteed 3 year contract says otherwise

if you are a sure 1st round pick u gotta be a idiot not to go into the draft. the area you go is not that much diffrent in money.
For other college players I can see that being more of an issue but seeing who it is, he wouldn't have to worry about money

River stock will fall the longer he stays...

the fact that the pundits consider him a top 10 player... even though he had just a "good" year should tell you that hes still riding on potential

 Hold That said:
combo gaurds typically play the two and one.. 2 of the examples you mentioned only played 1 position.
You need to look up the definition of a combo guard. Its a player that has the attributes of a 1 and 2 guard. They can predominantly play one of the 2 positions. They can make plays as well as create their own shot.

It can also mean a player who can switch from both positions but that's not the only definition.

lol @ you idiots saying austin should stay.

Clearly he wasn't a great fit for blue devil team. I don't think i've ever seen Coach K with a guard as offensively minded at Austin.....don't forget that going into the college season austin was a top 5 pick in most mocks by writers and he was a pre season all american. Staying at duke limited his game a bit because he tried to buy into the system for the most part, but his game is more of an up and down style which is pretty much the NBA. If he can get to a team where he can start right away and learn (suns, wizards, etc) he should be a 18-20 ppg scorer in 3yrs.

smh @ rich family

yeah because we all wanna eat off of daddy's money, and drive his cars, and live in his crib for the rest of our lives....gtfoh

He's not ready.

Hes on dimensional in terms of just being a scorer..
I never really saw him create for his teammates or show
that much ability to rebound. And I didn't think he was much
of a defender at this point in his career.

Hes also undersized at the 2, and really doesn't play like a point guard..
Still think hell develop into a decent player..just think he would be better if he
stayed for at least another year.

Honestly, who did not see this coming. I'd actually expected him to leave after next year, but hey, he is a grown man, take a chance.

When discussing college grads and not making money or getting good jobs you have to remove Duke from the normal conversation. Their grads go on to pretty good jobs if they want them, get to work until they are old and gray making minimum six figures a year. 30 years of that is a lot of money in the end.

Unless you are the best of the best in the NBA with endorsement deals added in the chances of you making more than them in your limited time playing are slim.
