Smith, Derrick Williams, DeMar DeRozan, Cuttino Mobley, and Marcus Williams. To wrap it up, Jennings hits the Boost Mobile Elite 24 with appearances by Aquille Carr, Kevin Durant, John Wall and Jamie Foxx.
There might be no rookie we’re more excited to see play this season than Kemba Walker.

Well now we get a chance to see that kicks that he’ll be doing it in. Introducing the Under Armour Micro G Juke.

Now that Deuce Bello has moved on to college, it’s time for a new high school dunker to ascend to his throne. You heard it here first, that dunker is Shaquille Johnson. The 6-4 rising senior from Milton (Ga.) High School who has committed to Auburn looks like he’s following in the footsteps of Chris Porter with these hops during the Boost Mobile Elite 24 dunk contest this weekend.

I feel like I watched the same exact video of Tyreke Evans last year, destroying high school kids in the same gym. Maybe it’s a new initiation? Come out here to the Boost Mobile Elite 24 Midnight Scrimmage and get embarrassed by Tyreke. Then, and only then, can you say you are somebody.

Two years ago, when the Boost Mobile Elite 24 was still in NYC, they held a secret midnight run at MSG so all the high school players could ball with the pros.

So with Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, Kemba Walker, Kenneth Faried and Jordan Hamilton all in attendance for this week’s festivities, it was Derrick Williams who decided to dunk on some of the kids.
