: : : : I'm not a numbers guy. I like skill, talent and effort. That's why I like Big O for Chino Hills. But Gelo had 52 and I'm kinda sorta wondering if I'm underestimating him. I never liked his game before and said that he's a good D2 player. Maybe a low mid-major. I haven't seen CHHS okay in awhile so let me know. Is he the real deal? Could Chino Hills beat Sierra Canyon?

: : : Real deal for sure and I don't think they best Sierra canyon because of bagley, but who knows. Gelo might not be athletic enough to play at the next level but boy can he shoot

: : Anybody that says "not athletic enough" in basketball doesn't know basketball. Gelo isn't good enough for high major division 1 basketball. He might flourish at a midmajor and make enough noise to get an overseas look. Not Euro league but maybe get paid in South America or Asia.

: :you always have good takes Valley coach, where do you coach?

"Not athletic enough" equates to not knowing the game? Hmm, I'd have to disagreed. The kid is big and strong, but who is he gonna guard? He won't bully the 3s at the highest D1 level because they are also big and strong and/or are way more athletic to compensate for any degradation in the strength department. The kid has a vertical of about 5.5 inches so the athletic kids that are flying all over the place and jumping out of the gym will be swatting his stuff all over the gym. Fast and athletic wings that he will be asked to guard (there goes that word again) will be running by him like his shoes are nailed to to the ground. If he is able to just run to a spot and jack up shots like he does now, he will be okay, but who is he gonna guard? I don't see it. If he comes in and makes an impact immediately I will be shocked and Lavar was right again, but I believe that he won't get the minutes or make the impact he first couple of years that some are predicting. He is a 3 star or less. If Melo steps on campus and is a one and done like Zo, the. I see Gelo transferring somewhere like CSUN, CSUF or LBST
