: While I appreciate his efforts and commitment to getting high school kids some more exposure (but he is also trying to sell photos and mixtapes), I find many of his opinions to be misguided.
: For instance, the Alemany duo he talks about is hardly elite.
: And his team evaluations are even more off base (unless it is something about say, Windward or Harvard Westlake being really good).
: It's just his opinion, but he likes to push himself as some kind of guru because he played on a really good Crenshaw team before any of these kids were born.
: Again, I commend the effort, I just wish they were less extreme and more analytical.
That's pretty close to how I see it. At least he's writing about the game and trying to grow it. Yeah, I don't agree with some of what he says, but he's putting in time.
He's got the same problem that any actual news source would have in covering basketball in SoCal--so many teams and players, and so few writers covering them. Really hard to get info.
