    I don't how race is involved. It could just be a ploy. If you look for racism where it isn't, you get more people on your side. That aside, this boy needs to go back to government class:

    "You don't hear about it in baseball or hockey. To say you have to be 20, 21 to get in the league, it's unconstitutional. If I can go to the U.S. Army and fight the war at 18 why can't you play basketball for 48 minutes?" O'Neal said.
    What? It's unconstitutional not to be able to play basketball?

    I'd let them drop out at 16 if they were actually going to be drafted. Who am I to tell someone they can't make 20 million a year because they need to sit in public school?

      And the bigger problem is that when idiots like this play the race card when there's no racism, it just makes it harder for minorities when racism really is an issue. Crying wolf has never been a good idea...

          Sounds like O'Neal shouldn't be worried about those coming out of high school, he should be worried about getting himself back in. Education for the win.
