Mixtape for Marcus Lovett Jr., a top 50 point guard (VIDEO)

Leave a comment

Yesterday, we showed you a mixtape from the most highly-regarded point guard in the Class of 2015.

Here’s another point guard that is¬†entering his final summer of AAU ball, but Marcus Lovett Jr’s game differs quite a bit from Jalen Brunson. Brunson is a game manager that can score and create. Lovett is a flashy ball-handler that can score, which makes for a great mixtape, but the reason he’s No. 41 in the class, 27 spots below Brunson, has to do with the point guard intangibles that don’t show up in a highlight reel.

I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.

Why?

Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.

Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:

POSTERIZED: Pensacola State’s Jamal Thomas dunks through block attempt, makes coach go nuts

A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.

The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
