Resumen:

Boys Among Men: How the Prep-to-Pro Generation Redefined the NBA and Sparked a Basketball Revolution : When Kevin Garnett shocked the world by announcing he would not be attending college, as young basketball stars his age were expected to do, but would rather enter the 1995 NBA draft directly from high school, he blazed a trail for a generation of teenage basketball stars to jump right into the pros. That trend would continue until the NBA instituted an age limit in 2005, requiring all players to attend college or another developmental program for at least one year. Over that ten-year span, the list of players who made that difficult leap includes some of the most celebrated players of the past few decades: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Dwight Howard, Tracy McGrady, and numerous other stars. It also includes notable busts, players like Darius Miles, who either physically or mentally proved unable to handle the transition. But for better or for worse, the face of the NBA was forever changed by the prep-to-pros generation. Now that many of those players like Kobe and Garnett are on the brink of retirement, this is the perfect moment to revisit them and tell the definitive story of their era.
