Nike Hoops Summit
Anybody else watching this?

Live stream at

Donatas Motiejunas is looking like a real beast. He's like a younger, skinnier, lefty Dirk. If he declares, I'd be surprised if he doesn't go lottery.

Xavier Henry is the most impressive Team USA prospect I've seen. He's got a sweet stroke, 6/7 from beyond the arc.

World team wins 97-89 in a big upset.

Motiejunas lead the World team with 22 points and 8 rebounds, looks like the best Lithuanian prospect since Marciulionis.

Seraphan from France is a 6'10" athletic freak that can finish in transition, is a good rebounder and good interior defender, big time prospect.

Macvan from Serbia looks to be a skilled undersized four with a big body.

Zubcic from Croatia was impressive as well, none of the guards from the World team were all the impressive.

Renardo Sidney looks fat, out of shape, slow and horrible on defense.

John Wall has unbelievable athleticism but looked out of control.

Xavier Henry has a sweet stroke but rarely looked to attack the basket and settled for the jumper a bit too often, especially considering his strong frame.

Avery Bradley should be a heck of a player in a few years.

Good anylisis- i have always loved this game and this years was no different

I still think moteinjunas is a top 5 pick if he enters

Avery bradley and henry look like great prospects- good big 12 year

I can see you saying out of control, but the best part from the us side to me was seeing wall- I hate to use another prospect to compare him to, but I see a bigger brandon jennings

That saraphen should go higher than ibaka did last year- his body is nba ready and has very good pf size

I thought that zubich? Was also very impressive and see both he and plumlee developing into possible 1st rd picks down the road

I kind of liked that greek gaurd, but you are right that most all of the intrest in the world team was on motenjunas and the other bigs

Fun game to watch as you see atleast 5 and maybe 10 or more future lottery/1st rd picks- what are the next hs all star games coming?

Oh and you're right on renardo sidney, but I still really like his ability and can't wait to see him at sc
