probably because they forsee more money in a professional job instead of going to college and being a "normal" person. This is not always true, there are some great jobs you can have if you go to college as well.
They don't. There is a rule against it now. Players have to spend at least one year in college.
...Actually the high school players who entered the draft must be 19 years & older and they have one year more after high school to enter. So that year they have the opportunity of going to college like Derrick Rose or you could go to Europe and play pro there and return to America to play here like Brandon Jennings.
They are professionals, my good sir. You should be feel negatively about yourself for asking. Your question is irritating. I'm having a bad day. Donkeys Outlook 2010 caused errors in AOL Instant Messenger.

The life of a professional athlete might seem luxurious, but during season it is hard work. You have to put up with anyone on the team you may dislike and you have to follow all kind of commands from higher ups (coaches, managers, and owners). Or risk getting fired or sued. You must watch out for your actions at all times during the season cause' you can risk losing sponsors which leads to money loss. The advantages of being a professional athlete is doing the thing you love and the pay(is not great for all Pro athletes).
No. In recent years, professional leagues have drafted athletes directly from high school.
It is advisable, however, to still attend college, if for no other reason than to have something which the athlete can fall back on in the event his professional career does not pan out.
Because someone is willing to pay them that much.
very thin because there are a lot of other good college players and u could just stink

He didn't go to college.
If you want to become a professinal wedding planner than yes. but if not then no.
I guess it doesn't really matter, if you're talking about the NBA. You have to go to college and get a sports degree, then be drafted by a team, but it all depends on whether the college accepts you or not to get a degree in sports.
No, if you go to an art school, you certainly cannot play intramural sports at a different four year university. In order to play a college level sport, you must be registered and a student at that specific school.
No. Three of them didn't go, one was an arts major.
