    She is still developing as a player, and an educated woman is worth more than a dropout.

    Think about it, if Candace had a career ending injury, she can still use her college degree to get a good job, maybe even start her own company.

    The starting salary for a rookie in the WNBA is only

    $ 41,000, it's not worth skipping college for that.

    At the same time she is improving her game, and her team leadership is growing.

    Pat Summit is a better coach than any in the WNBA.

    Whichever team lands the lucky #1 Draft Pick will have an experienced veteran, a leader in Candace Parker, instead of just a rookie.

    She'll only better her skills and make herself even more proned to come into the league and change a team's tragedy into sucess. She'll get to the league and be a star without a doubt. She's heightening her skills and getting an education while doin so. Good call waiting.

    NCAA men need to look and learn from it.

    absolutely! barring a really serious injury (God forbid), a pro career will always be there for her. if she leads the vols to another championship run, then she can be considered as one of the best ever at the college level and she may just have a degree for her efforts.

    no there is not as much money as in the NBA the main reason most college players leave

    an finishing school is always the best choice she is a very smart and intelligent young lady

    i think she made a good desision to not go to the WNBA because everyone should have a good education so that u have sumthing to fall back on.
