    if you're just basing this off the mcdonalds game, relax.

    he's the real deal, and has a side of flash to him, he's just a showman by nature, nothing wrong with that.

    think of the showmen who have had success from cousy to pistol pete to earl the pearl to magic.

    I remember in a AAU tournament, I got a chance to watch this dude, and the only thing he seemed concern about was trying to embaress the dude who was gaurding him, and when something didn't go his way, he'd cry his ass off.

    It's not the fact that he's a showmen. It's that he tries to combine a crossover, between the leg dribble, hop step, side-skip, and no-look pass into one play each time he gets his hands on the ball. He just seems "too street ball" for my liking.

    methink it depends on his maturtiy level. he has the talent, but needs to balance the showman skills with actual basketball game at this point.

    but are you only basing this off of the mcdonalds game, because it's pretty much a showcase game that means nothing to these kids from a basketball standpoint.

    I have nothing to contribute to this thread.

    I just want to say that Brandon's hair in that McDonald's game was the COOLEST.
    RIP KC. You will be missed.

    It is sad, I'm hoping KC abandons his ambitions for his vampire band and returns to S2 someday.
    Good luck with your vampire band of the living dead, KC.

    I've seen other videos and 2 condensed game highlight films, just seems too "I'm gonna break his ankles here" on every possession. Maybe I'm wrong, and I'm sure he'll learn to tone it down at the college level, but from the little that I've seen this is my observation.

    I'll give him that. That was sick.

    <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (CelticBalla32 &#064; Mar 26 2008, 10&#58;05 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}></div><div class='quotemain'>Does anyone else hate this kid's game? He is 100% about flash and looking good rather than actually being a point guard and/or playing the game of basketball. On every single touch, he dances with the ball and looks to wow the crowd with a dribble and/or throw a boneheaded no-look pass. He is a street ball player, not a basketball player. I'm pretty convinced that he'll average at least 14 turnovers per game next year in college.</div>

    Its an All-Star game...

    You dont get named National Player of the Year by three different publications without being good without the flash.
