Wow. Just got back from CA and the most frustrating several days of my basketball life as my laptop crashed and I wasn’t able to report! Sorry for the lateness of these comments…Coach Max
The most entertaining moments of an action filled Saturday at Pangos All American Camp in Long Beach came when two heavyweights clashed in a late afternoon game. For several minutes Quincy Miller of North Carolina and our own LeBryan Nash of Dallas Lincoln went mano es mano physically and in head games. Miller started woofing and talking #@*% that he was the “real #1” as he went to the hole and hit a three pointer on back to back plays. I was on the endline during the next play when Nash inbounded the ball and I asked him if he was gonna put a little Dallas, TX on Miller’s butt. Nash obliged as he went end to end and finished with a thundering left handed smash over Miller. Suffice it to say that in a few years we’ll see both these guys in the League, and who knows perhaps with the Texas Longhorns as both are being heavily recruited by Coach Rick Barnes.

What hasn’t already been written about Nash? He’s got a great body, shoots it well from the perimeter, can finish in traffic, has great body control and is strong as a bull. He just needs to put it together mentally and stay focused. Looks to have lost a little bit of his explosiveness as his body has matured.
Miles is getting better and better each time out. His handles are improving and he’s getting to the rim with more ease and regularity with slashing moves.
