Currently, to enter the NBA draft a player must be 19 years old and one year removed from high school, but there are heavy talks by NBA commissioner Adam Silver to push the age limit up to 20, forcing most players to spend at least two years in the NCAA.

Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine, who just awed America as he revitalized the dunk contest, is only 19.

Khari and Theo discuss whether or not changing the age limit is a smart idea and offer different fixes for the NBA that will be mutually beneficial for the young men and the game of basketball.
