    Chino Hills had a future #2, #3, and #6 nba draft pick on the same team. I can see why people call them the best high school team ever.

      @Freddy Calipari being a backup pg usually works wonders for pgs. he'll get minutes when they can't afford their current backup. if he's good he'll get plenty of burn as they like to play both together.

    • Ballskeezy

      @Freddy Calipari bro what? You definitely want him to develop similarly to guys like Murray, Harris and MPJ? If he got sent to a bad team, sure he would probably ball out but there’s a reason why he was taken in the late 1st and not the lottery, he’s not ready yet. He still needs to develop my guy, and he’s in one of the best places to do that

    • AC

      Freddy Calipari Denver Nuggets is contending now. Hampton is in a perfect place to win.

    • AC

      Freddy Calipari I’ve never heard a rookie say that he wants to play for a bad team. They want to play for good teams that are championship contenders bro. Watch some nba rookie interviews. All they say is “I just want to win”.

    Yep, I played Watford in Highschool and he played in my division, he was a beast. I didn't know he was ranked THAT high. Funny enough he was projected to be a 1st round pick and I was surprised he didn't go to the draft.

    Cycle of Life

    What process did NBA scouts use in evaluating Ball compared to prospects who played NCAA ball? Considering the impact of the pandemic individual workouts were virtually non existent and in the case of Ball footage of him playing versus top flight talent is also virtually nonexistent because he faced only players in leagues in Lithuania and Australia.

  • Rorisang Pitswane
    Rorisang Pitswane

    14:39 : RJ going to the NBL was better for his development as a player however if he went to college he would have been drafted top 15. At the end of the day as IT taught us it doesn’t matter where you are drafted, what ultimately matters is that you are drafted. Also he’s entering a good situation with Denver who don’t have a SG, a position that is RJ’s natural one. One reason why I like Denver is the approach they’ve been having with their draft picks is a developmental one, look at Bol Bol, the Nuggets always planned on bringing him up but want him to develop, it’s going to be the same story with the Nuggets. Depending on how hard he works RJ could very well be a stater before the season ends next year, but I feel they might send him down to the G League to develop for next season.

  • Kyle Byrd Clevenger
    Kyle Byrd Clevenger

    16:34.. when you said “that’s just great recruiting” referring to NBA teams. I feel like the recruiting happens within the players. What I think you meant to say was that’s just great managing. Because it’s not recruiting in the NBA except for players doing their things but when it comes to the organization, and getting players in who you think are good fits and will play their roll. That’s all managing a team and putting it together not recruiting. My bad idk why but that stood out to me so I just wanted to clarify it.

    Anthony edwards will most likely start at the 3 and will most likely start off as the 4th option for the wolves

    Lavar Ball did everything right towards his sons except for Gelo who he pulled out of college. He could have had Gelo transfer to a junior college or Division II school. UCLA was wrong for suspending him for an entire season because of political/media spotlight pressure. UCLA's action cost them LaMelo, but to be honest Lamelo is better off now than he would have been if he played four years of high school ball for Chino and a freshman year for UCLA that would have been cancelled because of COVID.

  • James Bowser
    James Bowser

    Wow, athletically, Ball appears to behind many of his draft peers. The real questions will be asked and answered when he steps on the court with those guys in the future. Tom Brady took it personal when he was drafted behind many quarterbacks. If those guys are like Tom, Melo has a ton of tough nights on the court ahead of himself. Melo has his foot in the door like many of those draftees. Now, all of them and Ball must prove their worth.

      It’s only accurate cause COVID a lot of guys didn’t get a chance to show what they could do but imo rankings are dumb for high school


      yeah I thought they were going to be garbage but there was a lot of talent there . Its hard to tell how good people are in high school.

  • Alex King
    Alex King

    RJ needed to re-classify he would have turned 19 before his senior year of high school was over and that is a bit old which would have meant he would be 21 during his rookie year. I do think he should’ve went to college instead of overseas though

  • Ezechiel Patience
    Ezechiel Patience

    ESPN only ranks players that are playing in on high school team, Lamelo was playing pro in Lithuania and in the JBA that's why they stopped putting him on their rankings. When he went to spire, it was his first time playing high school basketball/''real'' competition and without one of his brothers, that's why he was only ranked 21, plus, during his senior season at spire a lot of other seniors were playing as well if not better than him during their senior season so they had no reason to rank him higher, in fact they barely changed anybody's rank in the top 100 during their senior season.
