    Jesus Christ people these are 11 and 12 year old kids. If you go look back at "phenom" basketball players under 13, most of them end up nowhere.

    That McCabe kid can dribble, good for him. And he can make a shot. But what happens when he hits puberty and he has to change his shot and all that? And who knows how tall he'll be, what if he ends up 5'8"? He looks like an And 1 player at best, they didn't show ANY footage of him playing with other people (don't tell me the quick cut camera action on a pick up game where he passed it twice is film of him playing actual basketball). He did some fancy dribbling and individual drills, he didn't cross over another top ranked high school player, jump from the free throw line and dunk over a 6'10" high school kid...he dribbled the ball really well because he practiced hard. He's not the next best thing, he looks like a younger Reddick or Scheyer in the making

    I just think it's sad we put the spotlight on these kids so young, at least wait til they hit high school you know?

    Well yeah big difference between tricks and good basketball. I think Juggy was just impressed with the kid's ability is all, not serious about him being Lebron II or something.

    yeah i was kind of saying it tounge in cheek. although i do believe he could start for St. John's at the point, even if he is like 5 foot 1 right now. but like i said, i just ripped it from a friend's facebook page.
