These days, for most of us with average (at best) athleticism and hopes of attaining the “American Dream,” college is imperative, not optional.
For professional athletes, that is completely arbitrary. It is, however, encouraging to see athletes go back to school to complete their degrees…especially, seeing as it sets an example for the many young fans who follow them and their careers.
Pelicans Hornets star rookie Anthony Davis and his former Kentucky teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (currently with the Charlotte Bobcats) are planning to embark on that path.
Davis did have to correct himself, as he left college after only one year and needs to complete three more to get his degree.
