: My nephew is a sophomore and considered a pretty good player by local basketball people and his HS coach recommended he go down to one of the workouts that West Coast, the Under Armour group, runs.
: His dad took him down and wasn't that impressed by the workout, or, by the large turnout, but was approached afterwards by one of the staff and told that they wanted his son to play on one of their teams.
: So, my brother asked how they looked at him as a player down the road, etc., etc., and the guy said that they would talk AFTER he paid his fees, bought some gear, etc., etc.
: Well, my mama raised both of us so he's no dummy. He can spot a used car salesman. The kicker? In this economy, and, with the portal dominating college basketball coaches recruiting decisions, they want $5000.
: Wonder how many suckers are going to pay that thinking that they are actually going to be getting something of value?
: A lot of suckers. Kids on these shoe teams that are paying all the money that the elite kids aren't paying to get no coaching, not get any better, and, getting no burn either.
