Remember the NCAA regional draft rule?

By: Contrarian



You'd have to be over 60 to do so.  The rule stated that teams had first dibs with your first round pick on any college player in your home region, even if another team picking before you wanted him.  I think Walt Hazzard and Gail Goodrich both came to the Lakers under that. 

When Bob Cousy went to Holy Cross as head coach the rule ended, because most NBA teams thought every high school player in the country would want to go there to play for him.

Too bad....casued the Lakers to miss on Alcindor and Walton....
