: : : : : : : : Listen and learn so this kid does not end up burned.

: : : : : : : Did anyone watch the highlight video on Bleacher Report? He rarely gets back on defense. Los Osos scores, the closest Chino Hills player takes it out of the net and chucks it down to Melo on the other side. Cherry Picking at its finest.

: : : : : : shut the hell up, enjoy the show while you can. you guys cry about everything and anything, this fresh and new "gimmick" ball will only be around for a couple more years, you can then go back to your boring ass traditional ball, so just wait it out. i can assure you that his skill and mind set will carry him very very far, the deficiencies you speak of are easily fixed. 61 is a lot of shots but guarantee you that 99% of the rest of the high school population couldn't score that much even with same amount of attempts.

: : : : : Bottom Line, 92 points is 92 points. That is hard to do period unless you create yourself in a video game.

: : : : Congrats! The Ball brothers have dominated high school basketball! Have seen only one coach or trainer shoot it like these brothers. Coach Moore who can teach and shoot it like them. Be happy for players who put in the time and become great!

: : :
: : : This won't happen often but I'm agreeing with Jack Pollon on something. I know! He's actually making sense. Jack said that Chino Hills’ style of play is not a winning style. So of course every guy that played jv basketball and now twitter basketball experts want to bash him. I know that Hack Jack is a one but he's sometimes right. Anyhoo... Jack is right on this one. Don't tell me about their record. Chino Hills' style of play does not result in wins. Big O is why they win. The sacrifices by 2-3 athletic kids on that team so that the Ball Brothers can cherry pick and shoot whenever they please is why they win.
: : : "Justin, why can't you be happy to see a SoCal team do well and enjoy the Ball Brothers bringing glory to SoCal..." Shut up! Shut the FVCK UP! Go drown in a puddle you basketball moron! Do you really think that Gelo is "resting" or "hurt"? That kid is banned because he embarrassed the family with his 10% 3 point shooting. Do you really think that Melo shot nearly 70 shots for a friend in the hospital? If I'm in the hospital I don't give a rats a$$ about your shots. Do you think that Melo was not going to cherry pick and actually play defense but said to himself, "You know what. I'm going to shoot alot for my friend in the hospital.” If you believe this Lavar Ball pr stunt then I hope that you drink Magic Johnson’s used toilet water.
: : : I need to know what Lavar is saying to Big O to keep him there. I really do. Lavar does not look like a charismatic guy but his kool-aid is potent.
: : : My son was in the car today and said that I’m just stuck on old basketball, new hoops looks good and that I’m a “hater.” First of all, you’re 50% from the layup line so don’t talk about basketball to me. Second, your girlfriend looks like a zombie from Walking Dead. I’m on the verge of asking her to enter the house from the back because she’s scaring the neighbors. You know nothing about what looks good. Third, stop calling everything that you disagree with as “hate.”
: : : Gelo is a division 3 player. He can go division 2 and do well his final 2 years. He can go NAIA and do well right away. But now he’s going to take a division 1 scholarship from a kid that actually deserves it. “So what Justin?!” Shut up! Did you know that Russell Westbrook was a late addition to UCLA. So imagine Russell Westbrook not getting a scholarship because Gelo is on campus. Yeah… let that sink in.
: : : Anyone that actually knows basketball and has watched a Chino Hills game is not impressed by Lamelo. I saw a game and was very impressed by Big O and he received 2 passes the entire game. I’m serious. Two!
: : : It’s hard to dislike or discredit 92 points. But anyone that has seen a Chino Hills game is brushing this off. I know, I know… 92.

:
: : How did the other coach allow this to happen?

: : At some point you send Timmy from the end of the bench to gently put the kid scoring every time on the floor. He has five fouls. They don't carry over. So does Matt. And John. And Eddie. And everyone else.

: : Not condoning or saying to hurt him, but if you foul him enough, eventually he either won't shoot or the coach will take him out right?

: : The opposing coach was whining about how "that's not CIF basketball". He's right. Neither is playing NO DEFENSE.

: : Also, if my team is somehow scoring 146 points, I better have 8-10 kids in double figures. Maybe a kid goes off for 50, but I need other kids getting some love too.

: intentionally fouling or putting a young kid on the floor to stop him from scoring is cowardly and displays little to no character. your a dick for even bring this up, and worse a coward.


How is it different than a coach saying "No lay ups"? Everyone knows what that means.

It clearly said the intention was not to hurt.

This has been going on forever in basketball.


I would say neither team played any defense as evidenced in those highlights. They either try to block every shot or just play some matador defense and then throw the ball down the court.

One thing the coach could have done is go extreme box in one and tell a kid your job is to make sure he never gets the ball. You follow him everywhere - offense, defense, free throw, cherry pick, huddle, bathroom. Total deny. When that kid gets tired, have another kid do it. If that still doesn't work go triangle and two and total deny.

Bottom line, it's on the opposing coach to not allow a kid to drop 92.

One note from the highlights - the kid can really shoot. I mean every jumper is a swish. I don't think he hit the rim on a jumper. That takes serious commitment to practice and technique.
