All you need is one year of College Basketball before you can enter the NBA
You only need one year of college to play in the NBA.
You don't have to coach college to coach NBA
You do not have to go to college at all in order to become a NBA player. Most players are picked from college teams though.
You need to be at least 20 years old to play in the NBA or have had at least one season in college.
NBA players do not need an education. If they are good, they will make the NBA. Thus, many NBA players do not have a college education.
You do not need to play college basketball to be in the NBA. The NBA rule, as of 2010, states that you must be 19 years of age. While most players prefer to go to college, some choose to play overseas in other leagues until they turn 19.
at least 8 years In college
Its not just college you need play before college too and train alot. But 4 years in college is usually all you do.
Obviously, there are only NBA teams in the NBA, not college teams.
How many NBA players have college degrees?
There are many, many steps. First, you have to be at least 19 years old or have played one year in college- that is the NBA rule. Second, you have to have talent that is recognized by NBA scouts or someone that works for the NBA. The best way is to have played on a high school team and dominated. You will get local scholarships from local colleges (or great basketball colleges if you are that good) and will need to be in a Division I college (most that offer scholarships are). You will then need to dominate or do very well in college in order to enter the NBA draft and be drafted in one of the 60 spots. Then, only the, you can play in the NBA.
2 to 3 years
You don't need a college degree to play in the NBA. Most players only go to college for a year or two before declaring for the draft.

basketball players don't have to play college. they can just make the jump from high school to the NBA
They just changed the rule after Dwight Howard came into the NBA from high school that you need at least one year of college basketball to advance to the NBA.
No. In fact, you don't have to go to college at all to go into the NBA, though most NBA players have played at least some college ball before being recruited.
NO!!! college basketball is college... nba is pro..!
If you are currently in college just play there and then NBA scouts will come and decide if you are the right material
The NBA does not care what your GPA was in high school or college, only your skill level with the basketball.
