First, I'd like to wish much success in the NBA to all the New York players who didnt make it. Samardo Samuels, Edgar Sosa, Trevon Hughes, Greedy Peterson, and Sylven Landesberg come to mind. You guys didn't get selected out of the field sixty. But you got a good chance making a impression in the various summer leagues that are about to take place.
Now, I've had the chance to be around Devin Ebanks and Lance Stephenson more than the average fan. Those who remember know that these two guys went to Bishop Loughlin HS for maybe a two days before Lance transferred to Lincoln and at seasons end, Ebanks was headed to prep.
I seen Lance abuse grown men at a young age, and Ebanks looking like KD before we heard of KD. I remember Lance going at OJ, and Ebanks on the other court at ABCD going crazy on everybody else.
Thinking back at all the hundreds of games, I watched these two play...I can see how they got chosen into the NBA over Hundreds of thousands of Eligible Candidates.
I just don't understand how other teams will justify passing them up, in years to come. Goodluck to all.
