The exploding shoe of a college basketball star has set an exclamation point for the current NBA to allow players to play college and play professionally Age of 18 years.
The National Basketball Association and its players' association appear to be rapidly focusing on the rules that will force young elite players into one year of college before entering the professional class, the Associated Press reported.
The League The union sent the union the proposal to end the so-called "one-and-done" rule long before Wednesday night when Zion Williamson, the freshman of Duke University, in the early moments of the national televised game his team sprained his knee against the hated rival North Carolina.

Since the draft of 2006, the NBA requires players to be at least 19 years of age at least one year from the high school graduating class.
Players like Williamson, who are widely considered to be the NBA concept's top talent this summer, will have to play college basketball for a year. His unusual injury has forced the entire basketball world to question why a player's talent should not be paid in the NBA.
The Golden State Warrior Center DeMarcus cousin urged Williamson to think about the rest of the Duke season.
"College does not do anything for you at this point," said the dull cousin who was a once-and-for-one 2009-10 University of Kentucky player. "They've proven you're # 1, you've proven your talent, get ready for the next level, it happens."
Williamson assured the Duke fans that he would play again for the Blue Devils this season.
"I could not do that to my team-mates," Williamson said, suggesting he leave the team. "Thanks again for seeing the confidence in me and the type of player I can become, but I love college too much to stop playing, I would not give that up."
A NBA spokesperson declined commenting on Friday's measures to reduce the age requirement, and a union representative could not be reached immediately.
The NCAA, the governing body of university sports, had earlier said it would support the NBA and the union, which are lowering their age requirements for gamblers.
