Top 5 Rookies
1. Paul George; Indiana Pacers (Fresno State): 15.2, 7.8 reb
Started the week off a little slow but by the end of the week was showing why Indiana is excited about this guy. His ability to knock down the huge shot in crunch time cannot be measured in stats.
2. Luke Harangody; Boston Celtics (Notre Dame): 16.6, 6.3 reb
Denver Nuggets (3-0) 100 vs New York Knicks (0-1) 90
Toronto Raptors (1-0) 103 vs. Phoenix Suns (0-2) 69
Denver Nuggets 88 vs. Dallas Mavericks 70
Game 1 Boston Celtics 92 vs Charlotte Bobcats 71
Boston got off to a hot start in this game leading 21-10 after 1. They kept it up throughout the second quarter, trouncing the Bobcats at halftime 44-28, with no one from Charlotte able to step up and produce. Boston kept the pressure on in the 2nd half and ran away with the 21 point victory.
Game 1 - Orlando Magic 73 vs Utah Jazz 78
Orlando started this game struggling mightily to put points on the board and ended up down 14 at the end of 1. They rallied back in the 2nd and 3rd quarters to cut the lead to 3 heading into the 4th quarter behind the strong play of Patrick Ewing Jr..
After a relatively exciting opening day of the 2010 LeBron James Skills Academy, day 2 was a dud through the morning and afternoon sessions. The college counselors did not scrimmage in their lone afternoon session and unfortunately, their evening session was closed to the media. The most interesting aspect of the morning and afternoon sessions was watching the mass media stakeout of LeBron. Everybody except TMZ was here. Thankfully, LBJ decided to go off script in the evening as he brought Damon Jones and Cavalier teammates Jawad Williams, Daniel Gibson, Jamario Moon
The buzz around the LeBron James Skills Academy is much different than last year as the basketball world awaits the final decision of the biggest free agent in the history of sports. As a result, there was a large media contingent at the camp that probably had more interest in what LeBron was wearing than scouting any college or high school players. That didn’t distract us from taking in the first college and high school workouts of this year’s camp.
