Video: Carmelo Anthony, Rajon Rondo & Josh Smith Dominating As High School Stars

Boost Mobile Presents A Carmelo Anthony Miniseries Directed By Spike Lee

I never saw Josh Smith or Rajon Rondo play in high school, unless you count watching on television. I never saw Carmelo Anthony play at Oak Hill, either. But I did see ‘Melo hoop at Towson Catholic High School. This was before the stardom, before Syracuse, even before the braids. Back then, Anthony was just a gifted teenager rocking an awesome mini afro. At the time, he was already one of the best high school players in the entire DMV area. He’d grow to be much more.

Carmelo Anthony has been burning the league up since Mike Woodson took over in New York City, and through seven games in April, he’s averaging 31.7 points on 51 percent shooting.

Courtesy of SneakerNews, with the pictures coming from via riplovesun on hupu, we recently had a look at some of the rewards the current players at Oak Hill reap because of their association with ‘Melo: player exclusives of the Jordan Melo M8.

Nothing Like A Full-Court Shot To Start Your Morning

You might not have heard of 6-5 junior swingman Jordan Adams yet, but you will. Playing for Oak Hill Academy this year, the Lawrenceville, Ga. native (who plays for the Atlanta Celtics and transferred from Central Gwinnett) had a ridiculous full-court shot yesterday against the Italian Jr. National Team that somehow found its way into the bottom of the net. Not a bad way to start the season.

If you missed it on National Signing Day, John Calipari is rebuilding another monster at Kentucky. Right after five of his underclassmen went pro, he immediately landed Brandon Knight, the top senior PG in the country, and Michael Gilchrist, maybe the top player period in the 2011 junior class. In addition to them, Calipari has two blue chip commits in swingman Stacey Poole and Turkish big man Enes Kanter. It’s time to add one more. While All-American senior shooting guard Doron Lamb is formally announcing his decision tomorrow at the Jordan Brand Classic, we already know what it’s going to be. Doron Lamb is headed to Kentucky.

Jerry Stackhouse Can’t Go Out Like This

Jerry Stackhouse

It’s been a tough year for Jerry Stackhouse. First he appeared in just 10 games for the Mavericks last season while averaging career lows in points (4.2), rebounds (1.7), assists (1.2) and minutes (16.2) per game. Then he was waived by the Grizzlies after being acquired in an offseason trade. And if that wasn’t enough, he got crowned by John Wall in perhaps the dunk of the summer. But while most people might think he should just hang ‘em up, Jerry Stackhouse can’t go out like this. Read More »
