Fantastic Four

These PUNKS went so far in so little time.

Originally published in PUNKS 3

Our high school All-Americans from little more than a year ago, and subject of the PUNKS cover shoot about two years ago, three of these cats are already prepared to take the NBA by storm. And, let’s be honest, the fourth very well may be too, but the age rule is gonna make us wait a little longer to find out. As the NBA-bound Brandon Jennings, Jrue Holiday, and Tyreke Evans bring their games to the northern U.S.—heading to Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Sacramento, respectively—Lance Stephenson will be heading to Cincinnati next season. Separated for now, we may see the four reunite some Sunday night in February a few years down the road. It’s early but, hey, you never know.—Adam Fleischer

    Great title, Great Picture. These may be some of the most hyped ballers in the past 3 years.

    What’s even more amazing is that all will have mediocre careers

    I think Tyreke will have a Wade kinda game… sans the reliable jumper… hm… which makes him mediocre.. good call Jukai!

    Here’s betting that if all had attended 3-4 years of college your looking at 2 olympians and 3 all-stars, maybe 4. Instead…(sigh)

    Bet $10000 Jrue holiday is the first one outta the league. I mean seriously, did you see this guy play in college?? He looked completely lost, and even more lost in summer league. Dude just had no shot, no handle, no game.

    yeah – desmon, i’m glad he got picked by 76ers, i shudder to think if the suns had him still on the board there…

  • sixersforlife_85

    I’ll take that bet desmon if you’re serious. Will he be a star? No. But he will have a better career than Lou Williams and he’s sticking around just fine.

    cosign desmon. holiday is gonna struggle bigtime. he could be the first to go

    Tyreke is going to a bad team where they’ll give him the ball and let him work through his blunders. Isn’t he 6’6″? I think he’ll be the best of the bunch…he has a great feel for the game and got better as the year went on for the Tigers.

    3 of them in the league. Brandon and Tyreke holding it down respectively. Jrue will get his time and so will Lance. From youtube clips to the league. Respect
