Remember This Name: Jaylen Brown, Class Of 2015 Superstar

Jaylen Brown

Meet Jaylen Brown. He is a 17-year-old, 6-7 wing that hails from Marietta, Georgia. Some say he reminds them of 2014 second overall Draft pick Jabari Parker with more athleticism. Some say he resembles the number one small forward out of the class of 2014, Stanley Johnson, who will be suiting up for the Arizona Wildcats later this year. However, Brown is writing his own path, and by the way he has been rocking it on the hardwood lately, his name will be in the spotlight for years to come. Read More »

Remember This Name: Rayjon Tucker, Ferocious Class Of 2015 Wing

Rayjon Tucker

You know a great dunker when you see one, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to describe what makes him so. The human body has its limits, after all, and most of basketball’s rarest slams are performed by those who count dunking as a habit instead of the game itself. There’s just something extra compelling about the best high-level, in-game dunkers even if you can’t exactly put your finger on it. That’s the way we feel about crazy-athletic class of 2015 wing Rayjon Tucker. Read More »

Kobe Bryant

It’s an old adage in sports that players are born with a killer instinct. That the hyper-competitiveness and superstar gumption that makes the great ones greatest is inherent and can’t be developed. We’re not sure whether that’s true or not, but one thing is for sure: Kobe Bryant has always had it. Read More »
