But college athletes are exploited by universities to the tune of Billions of Dollars every year. This issue needs to be addressed. Why should colleges take money that should go to these athletes?
The college system is a separate issue from the NBA's rule regarding who can play. My question is, why is it more important to respect the 'rights' of the handful of players who could make the jump each year, and not the rights of the NBA to set requirements for employment?

You have to be 35 to be President. You have to go through training to be a cop. You have to get a degree to hold most office jobs. Are all of those rules also to be thrown out, since they stop people from doing what they want?
It's more often argued around the needs/wants of the 1% of people who are disadvantaged by the rules, than the larger group as a whole.
No, that's just your perception; one that has been tainted by your bias.
How often when those issues come up is the conversation about what's best for the sport of basketball, and for the NBA? It's virtually always framed as what's best for the small number of players who would get drafted. That isn't my bias imagining that.
