Video: Rodney Purvis – Best Player In Class of 2013?

Whether Rodney Purvis is the best player of the Class of 2013 — which includes AI’s cousin Kuran Iverson, Julius Randle, who’s already chillin’ with this crowd, and natural supertalent Chris Thomas — is up for debate, but he’ll definitely be in every top 5 list this season.

    he’s a PG right? if not he’s too short for a SG…. or he could be like a dwayne wade, but he doesn’t look as athletic.

  • Rodney K

    Purvis is the truth! He’s real athletic and plays older than he it

    OK but what I REALLY wanna know is, who’s the best player in the class of 2021?! Man, I remember the days when no one knew the names of any high school ball players except the top seniors.

  • LD

    I like how at 0:18 the defender does that unnecessary hand clapping and Purvis just goes right by him for the dunk.

  • Lazarus

    wait so is this guy like what 15? stuff that. thats crazy.

  • C.B

    @Lazarus he’s prbly 16 cause most guy r a lil older for their age.

    And for everyone else. I’m gona be the best player for 2013. But this guy’s strait too.

    rodney is the truth he was reclassified once so he is 16 or turns 16 this year.he is good tho

  • Dfrance

    He has some sneaky hops. Doesn’t look like he’s getting up but them you’re dunked on. Lol. Reclassified? Is that the new pc term for “his ass got left back?”

    @Dfrance: Yes. Maybe it was like OJ Mayo and they did that on purpose, or his ass just got left back.

  • BabeHill

    remember that he’s just 15.and i think he’s a boy who has a great passion and attitude always.he will get to be on the top

    Peter Jok has to be the best player in the 2013 class. Purvis looks good and fluent attacking the basket, but can he shoot a jumpshot? Jok has a great jumpshot and can score at will from around the basket AND from range. Early interest from Illinois, Marquette, and Kansas I believe. The word in Iowa is that he is going to be better then Harrison Barnes. We’ll just have to wait and see, but remember, you heard it here first.

    Cool,I love the magzine,I love the game.And I always think Slam is the best basketball joural I’ve ever read.It’s so cool,keep it up guys!

    All I saw was him dunking. Don’t get me wrong, he looks like a phenominal player, but I need to see more before I think he is the number one player from the class of 2013.
