    I’m getting kind of sick of all this talk about package deals in recruiting. Most of it is smoke, a quote that gets twisted around or a kid that’s looking to get attention by saying that he’s linked to another player. Think about it like this: one top 40 recruit rooms with another top 40…

Whether or not it’s deserved is a different argument for a different day, but the fact of the matter is that the prevailing school of thought is that AAU basketball and the grassroots, shoe company culture is what has ruined the American game. Competitiveness and winning at…

    I’m not exactly sure how I found this, but I came across this video of a kid named Steven Mallory dunking on Gilbert Arenas and Kenneth Faried in the Drew League out in LA: Nasty, right? So I went about trying to figure out who this kid is. Turns out he spent last season sitting…
