    Great group of players! Always proud to be associated with this game.

    First!

    Kendall Marshall, a kid who couldn’t even make first-team all-Metro in D.C., gets his hs coach, who is also one of the voters, to make him a McDonald’s All-American. Then the womanizing gambler gets the ugly kid into his Nike game (but doesn’t include much better players like Joe Jackson or Josh Hairston, due to politics).

    WILL BARTON!

  • Robb

    Will Barton 6’6″ and 165 pounds???? damn! that guy is too skinny!

  • Derek

    Haha to above post. Kendall Marshall can’t even be top 5 in the DC area…how is he on this list?

  • B Awesome

    What a joke Kendall Marshall is selected over a lot of other players that are tens times better than him. This kid is averaging under 14 points a game and he’s slow on offense and defense. This is worse than selecting Jordan Jr.

  • jeremy

    cause the dc area is amazing at basketball

  • kwame

    well…the womanizing gambler happens to be running this affair…so he can put in whoever he wants…the nobodies who are criticizing really are wasting their time

    In response to the first post about Kendall Marshall, if you lived in the area, you would know that Kendall is one of the top 2 players in the DC area. He is on a poor team. If you saw the kid play during the summer, NBAPA camp, Lebron James Skills Academy, and Nike Global, you would understand exactly why the kid belongs in McDonald’s and Jordan.

  • bigbill

    damn, not one player from Cali

    Looking forward to this game. And yes Jeremy, the DC area is currently holding bball down.

  • Wesjet23

    Let me be another to complain about Marshall. Why not Joe Jackson, or Ryan Harrow. Its only cause hes going to UNC. Rivals has Marshall as the 9th ranked PG, way better possible choices
