2009 AAUs: Day 4
2009 AAUs Day 4
This was an interesting day of AAU action as many of the top teams with NBA prospects were eliminated on the first day of tournament play after "pool play" rounded out the seedings. Tony Wroten, Isaiah Austin, Perry Jones, and Anthony Bennett are all done, as their teams lost. Here are a few other players who we scouted here in Vegas.
New England Playaz vs. Baltimore Assault
We had to get out to see Josh Selby, the 6'3" combo guard out of Lake Clifton High School in Baltimore. He was a nice player, who can handle the ball, pass, and score. His shooting touch was solid, but he's got great body control and hang time in the air. When finishing at the hoop, he does a good job squaring his shoulder and getting a good shot up. He uses hop-steps well and understands angles for getting by his defender. He can also dig in on defense himself, although he does gamble a fair amount. His game management wasn't the best, and he didn't play the point guard for this team, which shows that he's not the lead guard. His skills seem a little bit more geared towards playing off-guard, although he does seem to have the ball handling and speed to play the point. He'll definitely need to improve his overall game in order to be a first round pick because he's quite undersized for a shooting guard.
Selby's teammate 6'7"
senior Roscoe Smith was also impressive in this game, as he showed
nice leaping ability and size for the SF/PF position. Coach K
was in attendance observing Rosco during this game. He has nice
moves in the open floor, and had a couple rim shaking dunks, and while
he's not that skilled, he does have elite level athleticism.
The question is whether he can improve upon the tools he's got.
He uses his athleticism to score right now, but that won't make him
effective forever. He'll eventually need to tune-up his game.
Southern California All Stars Red vs. Memphis Magic Elite
The Magic were stacked with several players who have NBA potential in including Joe Jackson, who played another solid game, but didn't show an ability to take over for long stretches. He displayed his athleticism in the open floor and despite his size, he remains a complete player and potential NBA prospect.
Adonis Thomas, a rising junior, looked like the best prospect of the day. He can jump out of the gym and is a natural athlete who moves fluidly and gracefully. He moves a little bit like a power forward but can get up and down the floor in a hurry if he needs to. His perimeter skills are lacking, especially his jump shot, which isn't attempted with much balance. He expressed that this was the part of his game he needed to improve on in order to play SG or SF in college. However, Adonis is very effective around the basket. His NBA position is at SF due to his skill-set but he must greatly improve his handle on the ball and overall perimeter play in order to man the three. He's a little bit small for that right now, so hopefully he continues to grow another inch or two, yet he does have the potential to guard small forwards due to his strong body and great athleticism.
The Magic's Tarik Black showed
length and nice leaping ability. He's a senior out of Ridgeway
high school, and was a legit 6'9". He didn't have much of
an offensive repertoire, however, unless it was based of pure athleticism.
We will be back tomorrow for the final day's report and our top 10 prospects from the 2009 tournament.
Kendrick is a beast. Seriously top 25-30 talent? Guys top 10 player and hopefully you're not basing this off this ONE TOURNAMENT. Do agree this is a weak class though.
Devon Saddler number #4 for bmore assault was killing against the New England Playz, why is he being over looked?
While most thought Selby would be at the Super Showcase with Baltimore Elite. Teaming wit Scoe wasn’t a bad look. Roscoe does have all the tools but I agree he has to work on something’s. It’s coming though. Going to Oak Hill might be what the doctor order. Unlike Melo he won’t have the pass first's pg's when he gets there so I question just how much work you'll see.
Devon has a pretty good handle on it. And aggressive going to the hoop. But his a pg. and a pg. has to shoot the rock too. And be effective at it. With a consistent jump shot you can’t look him over.
The NBA needs someone named Roscoe to be among its players. Hope he makes it.
Thanks Sir Will keep working on the jump shot*

Isn't it amazing to know that he is a selfish with the ball, and in one play during this game, he got hit in the groin after looking off his point guard who was ahead of the ball on a two on one fast break. He wanted to take the ball to the basket against the defender by himself, and he ended up drawing contact, getting hit in the groin, and missing the shot completely. Karma is not on his side I am sure most of us here will agree to it.

There is a place for unpaid internships. The criteria defined by the DOL are very clear - it's worth remembering that nobody is forced to undertake unpaid work. It can pay off if there is a clear learning experience Education accreditation AND Masters Degree Accreditation AND Engineering accreditation
It’s admirable to mentor the next generation of workers, yet it is nonetheless wise to err on the side of caution by first making sure that your company’s internships do not run afoul of the legal requirements meant to protect employees and employers alike.

Roscoe Smith reminds of Tmack when he dunks!
