I know I share the same joyous feelings as many of you do with the lockout appearing to be over and a season on the horizon is great news to toast to, but I am a little concerned about one of the issues left to be agreed upon before the season can start and that's the age limit for incoming players. Currently we're in the one and done era of basketball which has certainly helped a lottery bound team like the Wizards (see John Wall), but with such a dynamic class of freshman in this year's class and most likely another repeat visit to Seacacus in May for the lottery, this is an issue I will be keeping close tabs on, especially as a Wizards fan.
If they change the rule and make a league minimum age of 20 years old, this will keep many of the top prospects out of the draft. I'm not sure if this will effect this year's draft (2012), but if it does Harrison Barnes, Jeremy Lamb, Jared Sullinger, Perry Jones, and Terrence Jones immediately get a big boost in the stock.
The losing teams in the NFL are all in the "Andrew Luck Sweepstakes", but this season in the NBA will be all about Anthony Davis...if he's still allowed to enter the draft (and he chooses to declare early).
The dust appears to be settling on the CBA, but this is one issue with some serious repercussions for a rebuilding team like the Wizards.
