The long anticipated dismantling of this season’s Arizona basketball team began last week when team leaders, Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson, announced that they would be casting their fishing lines into the NBA Draft shark tank. Much criticism emerged among Arizona fans, as a public outcry circulated that highlighted a collective disapproval of the choice made by two of the Wildcats’ most exciting high flyers. The same Arizona basketball fans that had been touting these players all season began rhetoric of ridicule, making depreciating comments such as, “Aaron Gordon is too young”, “Aaron Gordon can’t shoot free throws”, or “Nick Johnson settles for bad shots”, and “Nick Johnson isn’t strong enough”. But if there is anything that sporting history has taught young athletes trying to make professional dreams come true, it is that opportunity is an impatient creature, and NBA hopefuls would be wise to declare for the draft when their stock is at a highpoint. In the world of basketball, it is not always about whether or not a player is fully “ready” for the NBA, but rather, is all about when the decision to go pro makes most sense (and dollars). In the case of Gordon and Johnson, hanging up the Arizona jerseys was just the right thing to do.
