: : 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.

The Dog is right again, as usual. It's nice to see coverage of the girls game, even if you don't agree with everything Pop says. I'd be happy to see a few more folks get out there and take pictures and videos and do some writeups so we have more to talk about. Good for you Popscout for doing something. Glad to see you found a better picture of India Otto though...one she's actually in LOL.
