As I sit at my Lab top I don’t have a clue on what to write about. My experience over the last two weeks have been very educational. I don’t write to make people feel good. I write what’s on my mind, this is what makes individuals authentic.

The mind has 14 billion brain cells every individual on this Earth is different. Being a ball player you must find what you’re good at and maximize your potential in that area. This is how players create opportunities for themselves. I must be honest every player that I seen this past weekend something was unique about them.

All High-level team don’t have all high-level players. Some teams only have one or two players that are the face of their programs. To be honest it’s just about opportunities and being seen!

I must reiterate to the readers I’m not a scout or Talent evaluator. But like anything else in life if you study long enough you will become very educated on the field that you are involved in. I’m a father that has played this game. I have two sons that have played Football and Basketball. One is the 2A State Player Of The Year In Nevada. I know Talent when I see it. What Separates Me from others, I just tell the truth!

I’m not looking to be validated by no one. I show justice when it comes to giving information. The region I represent is the West Coast, I’m based out of Las Vegas Nevada. My primary objective is to make sure Las Vegas players are well-represented. fullsizeoutput_5e0b

It’s not a player in Las Vegas that you can tell me about. That I have not already seen or know about. I do my homework, I don’t sleep I just rest! So let’s get down to business on reviewing some of the players that had outstanding showing doing the 1st or 2nd live period…

2019 6’4 SG Brevin Walter of the Las Vegas Knicks is playing very well. According to his Head Coach this young man was on a tear in Atlanta in his last 4 games he’s averaging a team leading 16.5 ppg while shooting 46% and 42% on 3’s. This is a player that many people in the city don’t talk about! *PLAYER WATCH*
