i ve met many ucla players back from 06 thru 2010 and many of them were top hs players, but these days it seems like they kind of avoid ucla and for me the main reason is coaching staff, ben howland did a bad job of letting cats enjoy their time on the court. malcolm lee was so good when he fifrst came to westwood man, he was so good, they lost other dude kendall his name was from los ossos hs to new mexico... no one wants to play for coach who wont let u score over 10points after u just won hs player of the year award. LA is a great place for ball players, in the summer nba cats come to ur gym, theres HAX gym, drew league,great weather,lots of freebies... i seriously hope shabazz will come to ucla and that they hire offensive minded coach. my idol drazen petrovic once said offense is the best defense. what do you think bout ucla and their struggle to sign best players
Well before this year nobody wanted to sign there because Reeves Nelson was p!$$!ng on their clothes and punching them in the face for complaining about the dirty picks he'd set. Players were also going to practice high on E pills and enjoying boxing out too much. So I imagine word about that spread around.
But they did manage to land Kyle Anderson and because of that they are looking like favorites to land Shabazz, and UCLA is an Adidas school and Shabazz' sister who is a pro tennis player ranked 1,840,404 in the world in her sport somehow got an Adidas deal so you can do the math on that one.
yup i read about that. btw i was at the gym the very first moment russell westbrook stepped the foot on the campus after he got drafted and after the summer league... he came in everything stopped, he spread his arms and shouted I MADE IT , man still gives me chills no homo... but yeah if shabazz picks ucla he will play vs russell a lot during the summer and hell only get better
