Duke men’s basketball just concluded their Canadian Tour, and R.J. Barrett and Zion Willaimson lived up to all the hype they have received coming into this season. They started the 2018-2019 season with a bang, and with their performances on the tour, they have everybody in Durham excited, and basketball fans everywhere.
The NCAA has proven again they will come up with all kinds of changes so they will not have to ultimately pay the athlete. Of course, you still have people who are stuck in the past and will say they are getting paid through education. While I do believe a proper education is very important this is a capitalistic society that we live in. In every other market, the worker is compensated for their work and athlete should be treated the same. Some people would say you can not pay the athletes because you would have to pay for all the athletes which would be too expensive. Again this is ridiculous argument using the idea of fairness when it comes to paying athletes. Every member of every sports team does not deserve to be paid. If you happen to play a sport that does not generate revenue for the university you should not be paid.
