    How does your GPA fall below a 2.0 in an inner city CPS school when you are on the basketball team? One of the best in the nation. Massive fuck up somewhere because you know these kids aren't actually earning the grades one way or the other as its notorious how ill prepared they are for college

    Well, along the lines of what I said, this isn't some stereotypical inner-city (aka all-black neighborhood) traditional basketball powerhouse school like King used to be. It's on Archer and Pulaski, and presumably still has a bunch of teachers and administrators who aren't interested in giving fake grades to sports stars.

    Greer is a player. Hope this doesn't derail his long-term career.

    Pucks title was in at the gym last night. Apparently they can go to review, and they allowed GBN to get within 1 with under a minute left on what looked like a clear high stick over the bar.

    Or maybe they still play shoulder height? Ehh...fuck it.

    WTF is Simeon doing playing that far downstate before the actual state tournament? I don't really pay attn to high school basketball anymore, but that seems odd.

    No Brunson rematch. That's fine, he can drop 55 on everyone else.

    I went to Bremen, however, one of my best friends is the assistant coach and the head coach is a solid dude.

    Yeah, why watch tomorrow's stars today? Worst day of my life was watching Rose destroy Oak Hill all by himself. What a waste of an evening that was.

    That Oak Hill team produced 1 NBA draft pick. You watched Rose destroy a bunch of guys that were hyped up in high school but ultimately became nobodies. The great Rose vs Nolan Smith battle!

    Because Bevi knew that'd be the case at the time.

    :cmon:

    Following high school sports to root for your alma mater is strange, sure, but I don't see what's so weird with wanting to check out pro prospects early.

    Exactly. Plus Oak Hill was #1 in the country at the time with guys like Legion, Jennings and the aforementioned Smith, so Chae's argument is gay.

    I like paying $10 to maybe see a future NBA star. I'm not obsessed over my alma mater or anything like that but I've personally seen guys like Rose, Anthony Davis, Jabari Parker over the last 5-10 years going to various games, showcases or going to Peoria for the state finals.

    At the time, obviously not but then it doesn't make sense to bring up now as some past significant sporting event. I'm also just burnt out by hyping up teenagers. I see it in soccer all the time, people tracking U17 teams when maybe a couple players on those teams ever do anything of note as a pro.

    It was, essentially, the game that put Rose on the map nationally. He almost had a triple-double. It was an incredible performance.

    Do you really not enjoy seeing someone like Jalen Brunson play? He put up 50 against Young and Okafor last year. That doesn't do anything for you on any level as a basketball fan?

    I saw some IHSA title game over the past weekend for a few minutes but it was Class 2A so it was obviously shitty and not entertaining. I might catch a little bit of a game with a big name recruit if I came across it while flipping through channels but that's about it.

    I'm not sure where Brunson will end up projecting, but if you figure between Rose, Turner, Davis, Jabari, Cliff, and Okafor - that's a lot of talent to come out of this area. From a fan's perspective I don't see how you can't enjoy following it.
