You Can Shoot A Gun But Not Play In NBA!?

Kwame Brown is callin’ BS on the NBA’s one-and-done rule … telling TMZ Sports, “To tell a young man he can go shoot a gun but he can’t go earn a living, that, to me, doesn’t make any sense.”
Of course, the infamous NBA rule is back making headlines this year after Zion Williamson made it emphatically clear in just a few weeks at Duke he was ready for the pros.
But, the league still has its draft rule in place — saying players need to spend a year in college before they can play for one of its 30 teams — and thus, Zion remains a Blue Devil.
Enter 37-year-old Brown — who went straight from high school to being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 NBA Draft when he was selected by the Washington Wizards.
Brown thinks the 1-and-done rule is just ridiculous — telling us there’s simply no place for it in today’s society.
“Free enterprise,” Kwame says … “Go and get that money.”
As for Brown … we had to ask if he regrets not going to college straight outta high school given his NBA career didn’t flourish the way he expected it to — and his answer was a big, fat HELL NO!!!
“Factor out the numbers, I know economics,” Kwame tells us … “I own four companies!”
Brown ain’t lyin’ … dude did earn more than $50 MILLION in his NBA career!!!
