Scouting Philosophy: Playoff Pillars

This is different from anything I’ve ever written before. No clips, no prospect names, just philosophy. I think about basketball for more hours of the day than I’m proud to admit, and these are the thoughts that frequently roam inside my head. Throughout the past...

LaMelo Ball Is Just Different

LaMelo Ball isn’t like most 18 year-olds. In his budding — yet eventful — career, he has played in three continents, promoted his own signature shoe and starred in his family’s reality TV show. That’s different. The phrase — “that’s different” or...

NBA Draft Mailbag 1.0

The 2020 NBA Draft is 126 days away. That feels like an eternity. Even though I have a roulette wheel of takes constantly spinning in my head, I still need to get creative in terms of content to get us through the times. My twitter mentions aren’t always the most...

Draft Journal Vol. 4

While most people are binging Netflix and HBOGo during quarantine, I find myself watching the Spanish second division. It might sound ridiculous, or even torturous to some, but it’s been a great way to stay productive during these times. I still enjoy...

Back when I was in eighth grade, I had the opportunity to play in MADE Hoops events with my AAU team. It was an unbelievable experience, we got to bond over the trip and compete against the best of the best. Today, I went back to my roots and took in some action, from...

Draft Journal Vol. 1

Michigan State’s Aaron Henry (The Only Colors) Welcome to the first volume of my Draft Journal. Every two weeks (or so) I’m going to publish a new installment. Over the course of the year I take a ton of notes, I wanted to create a column that is timely and...

Fueled By Family: The Paul VI Panthers Want It All

During a year that initially looked to be derailed by injuries, Paul VI’s youngest stars rose to the occasion and kept the train on its track. Now the Panthers are back at full strength, and they’re ready to compete with anyone in the country. Last year it looked like...

Peach Jam Preview

The Peach Jam is one of my favorite events of the entire year. It is the culmination of the highest level of AAU basketball, and the two finalists get to battle it out on national television. First, it is an amazing experience for the kids. The idea of playing on...
