Jordan Brand Classic: East Recap

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 8:52pm

The East kept it close but couldn’t get the win this year as they were overmatched by the talent on the West. They shot well as a team at 42.9% from three but their 29 turnovers were too much to overcome. Here’s a breakdown of the East squad.

Jordan Brand Classic: West Recap

Sun, 04/23/2017 - 10:52pm

After starting down 7-0 early in the game, the West came out on top of this year’s Jordan Brand Classic. Minimizing the turnovers and offensive rebounds were key, making up for their lack of field goal percentage over the East. With a front court of Mohamed Bamba and DeAndre Ayton, we would have assumed they would register more than only two blocks as a team. It didn’t matter too much as they came away with the 124-116 victory.

Westbrook: Most Valuable Questions

Sun, 04/16/2017 - 9:00pm

Let me begin by making something as clear as I can, as early as I can, what Russell Westbrook is doing is amazing! If there were an award for most impressive individual season, or best statistical accomplishment, maybe even most enjoyable to watch (not for me, but for a lot of us who get enthralled with gaudy numbers), Russell Westbrook deserves all those accolades. If the NBA joined every other professional league in differentiating offensive statistical accomplishment, from overall value, he’d be our silver slugger, our Offensive Player of the Year, our Golden Boy.

The Jordan Brand Classic had two days of practice; day one at the HSS Training Center and day two at Terminal 23 which was a full day of scrimmaging. Michael Porter was out both days with an injured back but there were plenty of other talented prospects competing.

2017 Nike Hoop Summit: World Team Recap

Thu, 04/13/2017 - 9:00pm

Coming off of last year's 34 point loss and lacking much in the way of star power, outside of their young 16 year old phenom RJ Barrett, many scouts figured this would be another blow out. But behind the excellent coaching of Roy Rana and his staff (Marin Sedlacek and Borko Popic), the World team surprisingly kept it close as they showed a lot of grit and toughness maintaining a close-fought game until a late surge by Team USA.
