There's not a lot of love for the one-and-done phenomenon in college basketball. One of its detractors: Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who believes the league should raise its age limit to 21 -- but who also thinks that, under the current system, a year of NBA Development League basketball is more beneficial than the same amount of time in college.

"There's absolutely no reason for a kid to go [to college]," Cuban said, "because he's not going to class [and] he's actually not even able to take advantage of all the fun because the first semester he starts playing basketball. So if the goal is just to graduate to the NBA or be an NBA player, go to the D-League."

Cuban envisioned a D-League designed to assist both emotionally and educationally, saying it could offer more help than colleges are allowed under NCAA rules.

What do you think of Cuban's contention?
