Like I've said before I will never knock  a kid for getting a scholarship no matter where it's at... thats a good thing and I congratulate em for it. But some of these college choices baffle me... 

If It was me personally  I wouldve went with Syracuse or Villanova 

Now hooville may try to say some bullshit, but this one I know for a stone cold fact! Collin most definitely took money (among other things) and I ain’t mad at him for it! 
 

Just don’t wanna hear no gump telling people they’re above board.

And about 100 chicks a road trip. Dude was a “scoring” machine.

Ima take you on a trip back to 1988, first round of the Utah State basketball playoffs.   A plucky point guard who lived by the “never met a shot I wouldn’t take” mantra by the name of Sweet

Wilt is not a maybe.  Relative to their era Wilt is one of the greatest ball players of all time.

Collin Sexton could've and probably would've started at whatever school he went too...

What happened to him? I don’t hear about him

He's a Great player but he's on the wrong team.... 

He's on Cleveland now. Starting lineup one of if not the lead scorer.... 

But I expect the Cavs to trade him soon. 

Tbh I expect next year we'll see it happen

Dale Ellis had like .03% body fat, that number decimal point may be wrong but it was point zero three percent body fat.

I was at 6% in the same camp.... Dale was all business on the court and during practice.

I'm not schooled in PA basketball history like some might be but the ones I hear most during the season when they talk old school PA players;

Kobe Bryant for sure

Billy Owens (late 80's in PA high school)

Rasheed Wallace (late 80's/early 90's maybe)

Wilt Chamberlain late 60's maybe

Jerry Macnamara

my sixth man off the bench would be Ed McCaffrey - I know he played football at Stanford and Dcnver but the dude was a beast on the basketball court in high school!!!

First of all.  Most of Max preps list like this are complete garbage.  This list is no different.  Indiana and Virginia are the squads who would be the toughest to beat.  New York would be tough as well.  Texas would not be able to get the ball up the court.

no doubt w/ what you say.  Wilt is only second to Kobe at the high school level in PA (imo).  My "maybe" was referring to the era 1960's maybe.  I am not sure if he was 60's or 70's.  Same w/ Rasheed Wallace, heard of him 80's, maybe early 90's.

I am 74 and remember reading about Wilt at Overbrook in the ‘50’s.  I met several at Hershey who saw Wilt score 100 points in their arena.  For myself Kareem is the best I ever saw and this includes the two games with DeMatha at Cole Field House.  I would choose Wilt over Kobe to play against Kareem.

Louisiana checks in at #4

4. Louisiana, 732.12
Karl Malone, Summerfield, 234.6
Robert Parish, Woodlawn-Shreveport (Shreveport), 147
Bob Pettit, Baton Rouge, 136.05
Elvin Hayes, Britton, 120.76

Louisiana always has been had underrated hoops talent.  Everyone thinks of NY, Chicago, D.C., Southern Cal (For good reason, all those places are packed with talent).  A lot of talent in TX, Ga, Fl, Indiana as well as Louisiana.  These places just don’t have the high powered super talented leagues that get the attention.  The talent is spread out more

wow, I was off by a decade, lol.  I never saw any of Wilt's high school games, obviously but did hear old school coaches talk about him.

At the high school level, I saw Kobe twice on tv during our PIAA state championships beat up on Saquon Barkly's alma mater in Whitehall HS as well as Erie Prep :) and once live while home for a birthday during our 96 PIAA playoffs at my local high school gym.  Lower Merion came up and got upset in overtime but Kobe still dropped 30+ and what was really cool was Kobe's dad took him into the other team's locker room at end of game and congratulated/shook hands again w/ all the opposing players.

When DeMatha ended Power Memorial’s 71 game winning streak on their second try in ‘65 (only game Kareem/Lew Alcindor lost in hs) Kareem went into DeMatha’s locker room and congratulated them. (Three players on that DeMatha team played in the NBA.)

Off topic:  I have actually shaken Kareem’s hand.  Twenty or so years ago my wife and  I had dinner at Chinois on Main in Santa Monica.  When we walked out I stupidly was not looking where I was going.  Kareem, sitting at a table had his legs out and I tripped over one.  I didn’t fall but he helped “catch me.”  Afterwards I apologized profusely and he shook my hand.

Can I mention how big of a hand Kareem Abdul Jabbar has?
