We might have witnessed the best inbounds dunk of 2015, and we are only seven days into the new year. Class of 2015 forward Hafid Yassin out of Chief Seattle High School in Seattle completely shut down the gym with one of the most insane alley-oop finishes we have seen in quite a while – especially at the high school level.

Class of 2015 point guard Marcus LoVett has been a household name among prep hoops junkies for years. Blessed with NBA-level handles since he was barely a teenager, LoVett has slowly fallen from the cream of the high school crop recently to settle among the top 100 prospects in his class as a rising senior. Don’t get it twisted, though – the southpaw’s mind-blowing ballhandling exploits haven’t gone anywhere. Read More »
With the college basketball landscape flattening by the day, creating an environment where runs from programs like Florida Gulf Coast are more and more commonplace, the big guys need to work even harder to secure talent to keep them on a national stage.

We were this close to full-fledged Spike Albrecht Mania today. If Michigan had won last night’s National Championship game, the story of the 5-11, bowl-cut-sporting, unrecruited freshman who shot the Wolverines to a title would have been the stuff of all-time legend.

Regardless of last night’s outcome, Spike was feeling himself to the point where he was throwing game at Kate Upton.
We caught this last night: highlight footage of young Spike doing work in high school game back in Crown Point, Indiana a few years ago. Read More »
For the last two years, we have faithfully documented the rise of 5-7 Baltimore high school scoring machine Aquille Carr (watch his insane highlights here).
Lately though, serious trouble has seemed to follow Carr. Read More »
When it comes to actual athletic ability, the entertainment industry is full of phonies. How many artists would have you believe that they could have been a pro athlete if they hadn’t picked up a mic instead?
Now, I’m not saying that 2 Chainz could have been playing in the NBA today, but as you can see from this footage of him playing ball in high school, he could almost certainly give you buckets. Read More »
