Is the NBA's age limit ripe for legal challenge? The NBA is interested in elevating its age eligibility restriction from 19 years old to a higher age. Could younger players who are good enough to enter the NBA but who are denied entry by the restriction successfully challenge the restriction in court? Dean McCann has written extensively about the legality of the NBA's age restriction in both academic publications and for Sports Illustrated. He also was part of a legal team​ that challenged the NFL's eligibility restriction in a federal antitrust lawsuit.
