There are age limits in many of the most important activities in this country.

It is unquestioned that every person must be of a certain age in order to work, to drive a car, to enlist in the selective service, to buy an alcoholic drink, to be a party to a valid contract, to get married or to see a particular movie. As such, I understand and appreciate the concept of a suitable age requirement for eligibility for the NBA draft.
