I have seen a lot of basketball in the City of Las Vegas on the high school level in the past few years, and I have seen a lot of players get lost in the shuffle of their expectations. Responsibility is something that these young men must understand and accept, what is Responsibility, according to the dictionary it is,
Definition of responsibility for Students
the quality or state of being in charge of someone or something
the quality of being dependable Show responsibility by always doing your homework.
What I’m giving here is a different perspective on the game, this past weekend I have seen players that were expected to be big time recruits out of this city, not doing anything. But tell you the truth these young men are not mentally develop there’s definitely something that is missing in our society today. I know I might catch some flack for this, but parenting is something that must be address in America. No Doubt the game of Basketball is Beautiful to watch, but its even more beautiful when you see young men taking care of their business. The duty of a civilized man is to teach the uncivilized how to be civil, to teach them cultural refinement and the pursuit of happiness. Some people may say what is that, it is when you know what your Responsibility is to yourself!! LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS!!
In the Nike EYBL MID-SEASON REPORT: DIVISION B it talked about 6’3 PG Marvin Coleman of the Las Vegas Prospects stepping up into a leadership role, and he has not disappointed anyone with that. The young man had a Breakout game against Mac Irvin Fire he went for 26 PTS, 6 REB, 5 AST in a win, and he has received offers from U. of Lasalle and the U. of Fresno St. this young man is really making a name for himself. SOME OF VEGAS BEST!! YOUNG FELLA IS REPPING THE CITY WELL!!

The month of June will be the time for players to work on their game, this is a down period for U 15- U 17 age category, but players must understand if they’re going to be ready for the Live period in July, they must stay in the gym. Some players in the city will be attending camps around the Country. U of Southern Utah will be holding a Individual players camp June 14-15 the cost $120 dollar (housing included) Camp Beings: 1:00 p.m on June 14, 2017
UNLV will be holding camp on June 19, 2017 the cost is $100 dollars for Individual players, Team camp June 15-18, 2017 $400 per. Team
As we draw closer to the end of the 2016-17 school year there is no time off in education, you can always be working on SELF.. Preparing yourself for the ACT and SAT are very important as a student athlete. Over the summer Student Athlete who may be struggling in a subject should be looking for a tutor to help them improve and become better prepared for testing.
As the game grows in our society, we as a people must also be growing!! Because one DAY the BALL will STOP BOUNCING and the question will arise WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR MIND!!!
VEGAS ALL DAY!! I REP THIS CITY!!!
