First of all, we all know almost every transfer, especially of top level athletes, is athletically motivated.
The main difference in this comparison, at least based on what is publicly known, is that Bagley's Dad told the media he was moving him for more exposure and better competition.
Sorry - but all arguments end for him right there. That is just dumb to do.
As for Bol, it appears they moved, didn't play anywhere, and provided documented proof of legal move.
Athletically motivated? No doubt. But not throwing it in everyone's face in the media.
And in the end, both of them will be fine getting whatever D1 scholarship they so want.
