    Amazing rookie for the Milwaukee Bucks.

    Pours in 55 points last night.

    And get this. He didn't score a point in the first quarter.

    He was just 3 points shy of Wilt's rookie record of 58 points.

    Amazing to think only a handful of players have ever scored 55 points from the 2nd quarter on.

    Yup. Seems like it paid off for him to go and play one year in Europe instead of College ball.

    Good for him. He seems like a hard worker. I know he had problems in Italy at first but has persevered.

    The options for an elite high school basketball player:

    Don't worry about grades. Go to Europe. Play against Olympic level talent while gaining a little mystique. Make around $1M. Go to NBA after 1 year.

    Study while your competion is making money in Europe. Play against kids that are not challenging you. Have every game over analyzised.

    The NBA/NCAA did not fix anything by implimenting this rule.
