    Forgot to put the decimal point between the 4 and the 6. Great for Niang. This is always a huge camp with lots of excellent players. Should be a good learning experience for all.

    Only 46"....thought he lost weight. It should be 50" by now.

    I don't think that is everyone. A couple of spots on that site show that the rosters haven't been posted yet. I also believe that Aaron White is going and he isn't on that list.

    Yeah, I don't think it shows the current college kids, only the wannabe's. Sorry about that.

    The 46 inch thing is a joke right? That would mean he is looking down at the rim. LeBron can barely do that.

    Diallo will also be there. Hope him and Niang are really connecting at these camps.

    Those are just the high school kids. The college kids will be listed as coaches once the list is finalized (not posted yet). Invites have been going out the last few days.

    Maybe that was his broad jump. Either that or he jumped off a two foot box.

    Why is white making these camps for elite players? Don't get me wrong I'm not saying he sucks, hes good, but he is not elite at the college level.

    Is this where he goes to learn how to flop and overact?

    So, I get that the 46" vertical is a joke, and we and George seem to handle it in stride so-to-speak, but isn't it kinda bush league for Goodman to put that in print along with a Lebron Academy invite? And, I have nothing against Goodman.

    You have to go to the Lance Stephensen camp for that and other tricks.
