Captain 'Paign
Phoenix, AZ
[FONT=&quot]I know Playaz already posted this but it's worth watching again. He scored 50 points against Prolific Prep, a team that went 29-2 and included Gary Trent Jr, Paul Scruggs and Abu Kagib. As a commentor said below this video on YouTube he's currently 4th in EYBL scoring behind Bagley, Bol Bol, and RJ Barrett. And he's just a Junior. Tough crowd today.[/FONT]

Uh, yeah. He's got great handles and body control. Like how he scores in traffic and has excellent range.
 
Winged Warrior
Brazdeikis has a very strong, tight dribble. Guys that big at that age usually don't. He doesn't have Zion's explosiveness, but he's a good athlete. He's a kid I'm really high on. He'd be an All-American at Wisconsin.

He's got great feet. Very fluid movement. A lot of guy his size have very heavy feet. He doesn't. He moves his feet like a point guard.
 
He'd be an All-American at Wisconsin.
Hmm. He doesn't have a Wisconsin offer. He's not from any of the areas Wisconsin usually recruits. Not sure Wisconsin is even involved in his recruitment. I wonder what it was that you saw on his video that made you immediately associate this player with Wisconsin....

He's one of those guys that is just a Player by the looks of it. Nothing makes you go WOW! but he just scores in a non ESPN highlight sort of way.

He has a lot of Sam Dekker in him.

Good fundamentals. Not an elite athlete, but he's got a high motor. Scrappy. Coach's son with a high basketball IQ.

I'm sure I missed a few.

Aka the way that people describe most white athletes. High motor, good fundamentals, etc. seem to have become coded language for talking about white guys who excel in sports.

We need to cut this sort of thing out.

I mean how else would you describe his game?

I don't think anyone is offended, I just think it's lazy and misleading.

The kid's game is pretty dribble drive based, that isn't really a fit for Wisconsin at all. It's a great fit for us.
Not the point, but if you want to make more out of it than what it is, have at it.
