Houston ESL MVP and All-Tournament Team! - Aug 9, 2012

MVP: Jejuan Plair (185-G-85)
Jejaun led his Dubai team to the Championship and was just an unbelievable performer. Jejuan can shoot the three, he is extremely athletic and has an NBA body. He has the ability to score points in bunches and is a team leader. Jejuan can play for a number of teams at any level, however he would be perfect for a younger team that needs a leader and at times a scorer who can carry the team on his back.

All-Tournament Team:
Jejuan Plair
Jejauan led his Dubai team to the Championship and was just an unbelievable performer. Jejuan can shoot the three, he is extremely athletic and has an NBA body. He has the ability to score points in bunches and is a team leader. Jejuan can play for a number of teams at any level, however he would be perfect for a younger team that needs a leader and at times a scorer who can carry the team on his back.

Brandon O'Brien (198-SG-92, college: Clark Atlanta)
Brandon is a smooth creative big guard that can play multiple positions. He is a tremendous athlete who is a crafty creative player that can slash to the basket off the dribble or shoot the pull up jumper. He is a very good outside shooter, has nice range and is a very good 3 point shooter. He plays great defense and he is a great scorer with a high basketball IQ. Brandon is capable of playing in a good mid-level country or would be outstanding in a country like Iceland.

Terrance Hill (193-G-89)
Terrance is a very athletic powerful player who goes 110 percent all the time. He is an excellent perimeter player who can shoot the outside jumper extremely well and guard 3 positions on the floor quite easily.
He will be a star in leagues like Luxembourg, Uruguay, Norway, and Switzerland.

Raason Young (198-F, college: Montana St. - Billin)
Raason is very strong competitor and is very strong defensively. Raason has nice range and can shoot the 3, which makes him a major match up problem for teams. Once you come out to guard him he will kill you by going to the basket and is extremely athletic. Very strong rebounder and he is in excellent shape. He runs the floor extremely well and plays above the rim while trying to finish around the basket. A very good start for him would be in Switzerland for sure and he would dominate Luxembourg.

Kenny LaGuerre (205-F/C-85)
Kenny had an excellent Houston ESL event and was the best inside big man in the event. Kenny has a very nice outside shot from mid-range or 3. Runs the floor extremely well and has a number of moves around the basket and finishes like a professional. Kenny is a solid defensive player and rebounder who competes very hard around the basket competing to finish everything. Kenny is a steal for entry level teams in Europe, he will easily be a very effective player for entry level teams.

Las Vegas ESL Co-MVPs and All-Star Teams from Court 1 & 2! - Jul 18, 2012

Close to 100 scouts, gms, coaches and agents came through Las Vegas ESL in the last 3 days to see the players and the guys did not disappoint. Everyone worked hard and competed. There was an abundance of talent here at the Las Vegas ESL and it was a tough decision for the coaches to decide on who made the all-tournament team. However, the coaches have based their decisions on the following: professionalism, effort, and the statistics produced over the last 2 days.


Court 1:

Co-MVP: David Graham (196-G/F-85, college: Georgetown, KY) displayed an impressive three day performance in all aspects of what he did here.
He is a good athlete that has a solid 3pt range and a mid-range game as well.
David has a nice step back jump shot and he can create off the dribble to get space to get of his shot.
He also is very athletic, plays solid defense, rebounds well, brings a lot of energy and doesnt get put worked by anyone on the court.
He is a swing player that can play anywhere in Europe and has a bright future.

Marquis Wright (203-F/C-80, college: Alabama) is a high quality forward who has some nice offensive skills.
He can post up around the basket; he can slash and go past slower big men easily and he has a nice mid range jump shot.
Marquis is an excellent rebounder and shot blocker as well.
He runs the floor hard and with his skill level could be a big time forward in any European league.
Raymond was the best skilled forwards in the ESL Summer Camp and has a great attitude and is very coachable.

Zach Coverstone (208-F, college: Ind.Wesleyan) is an excellent hard working post player that has a nice shooting touch.
He can run the floor well and finish in the open court.
He is solid low post defender who the athletic ability to defender smaller players.
Zach is a solid rebounder and has a bright future playing international professional basketball.
He is also a good passer and rebounds extremely well.

Randell Daigle (177-G-87) is an excellent combo guard who can score in bunches from anywhere on the floor.
He has a deep shooting range and can pull up off the pass or dribble without needing a lot of space to shoot.
He can finish at the rim in traffic and is a great passer as well.
Has a high basketball IQ and is a good leader on the floor.
Randall is a solid defender with good quickness.

Clyde McKinney (180-G, college: Ferris St.) is a great leader and does a great job of getting his teammates involved in offensive play.
He is a sold shooter from 3pt range and is a good finisher in the open court.
He can finish and pass well in traffic.
Clyde is a tough defender with quick hands and can defend any ball screen situation with ease.
High Basketball IQ and does great job recognizing favorable match-up situations.

Court 2:

Co-MVP: Jason Conley (196-G-81, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Missouri) was the ESL Las Vegas MVP of court 2 without a doubt and displayed all the qualities in an MVP we were looking for. He is a terrific shooter who shot the lights out over the last few days. Also, his experience and team leadership were second to none. Jason is set to make a serious look at some big time jobs in Europe and show everyone that the injury bug is over. Look for Jason to end up back in the BBL of Germany.

Ryan Anderson (193-G-87, college: Nebraska) is a high quality forward who simply has some nice offensive skills with a very high basketball IQ. He can post up around the basket; he can slash and go past slower big men easily and he has a nice mid range jump shot and posesses a long range threat.
He runs the floor very well and with his skill level could be a big time forward in any European league. I would look for Ryan to have a break out year in Europe or the D-League giving him an opportunity on a NBA summer league roster next year.

Antoine Watson (193-F-88, college: Indiana SE) is an excellent big time athlete that has a nice shooting touch stretching it out to the NBA line. He can get his shot off at will and he explodes over defenders with his NBA athleticism. He is great absorbing contact and still finishing around the rim. He is also a good ball handler who will be an excellent two man and rebounds extremely well. Antoine is going to end up at a high level here or overseas.

Alex Zampier (191-G-88, college: Yale) is a big time prospect in Europe without a doubt as he can handle it, shoot threes and get to the basket. He is a great athlete as he played professional baseball already as he is a very athletic swing man that has a nice game of slashing to the basket and shooting the perimeter shot all the way to NBA 3.
He is perfect for any quality situation in Europe and will get to a high level for sure.

G.W. Boon (193-SG-89, college: Bucknell) does not disappoint each and every time you see him. He is a very strong player and is always very consistent. Boon can play 3 and 4 in small leagues such as Luxembourg. However, he has a very high IQ and could play the 2 and 3 in a league such as BBL of Germany.

Orlando ESL All-Star team and MVP! - Jul 14, 2012

CO-MVP: D.J. Ferguson (185-G-89, college: Flagler)
D.J. is a smooth creative big guard that is a natural point guard. However, he may look more like a football player, he is very good floor leader. He is a crafty creative player that can slash to the basket off the dribble or shoot the pull up jumper.
His outside shooting ability is nice from the 3 point range but he is much more accurate in his mid-range game.
He plays great defense and he is a great scorer with a high basketball IQ.
D.J. led NCAA D-2 in assists and would be a great mid-level pg.

CO-MVP: Larry Jackson (201-F-88, college: Florida A&M)
Larry is a very athletic power forward at 66 and 235lbs that can play the 5 position in smaller leagues.
He is an excellent perimeter player for a big man who has small forward type of skills.
He can shoot the outside jumper and guard 3 positions on the floor quite easily.
He runs the floor like a deer and plays very strong around the basket.
Larry has excellent footwork around the basket and has a nice inside and outside game.
He will be a star in leagues like Luxembourg, Uruguay, Norway, Switzerland.
Larry deserves this award as he did everything he was asked and more, as he even played on another team at times who needed an injury replacement player. Larry is extremely good shape and great person.

All Tournament Team:

Antoine Watson (193-F-88)
The 2011-12 NAIA All American that came to Orlando and displayed his high skill level.
He is a legitimate NBA prospect and very tough competitor with a deadly outside shooting stroke.
He is an excellent scorer and very, very explosive. Antoine really should have been on an NBA summer league roster this year. His mid range jump shot is high quality and he has a nice understanding of the game.
He is a solid defender and rebounder as well as an NBA type athlete for sure.
Antoine should play in NBA D-league for a chance at a call up.

D.J. Ferguson
D.J. is a smooth creative big guard that is a natural point guard. However, he may look more like a football player, he is very good floor leader. He is a crafty creative player that can slash to the basket off the dribble or shoot the pull up jumper.

Larry deserves this award as he did everything he was asked and more, as he even played on another team at times who needed an injury replacement player. Larry is extremely good shape and great person.

Andrew Hayles (196-G-87, college: Alabama St.)
Andrew has sat out the last two years, but you would not know it. He is very hard competitor and is very strong defensively. Andrew has nice range and can shoot the 3, which he makes major match up problems for people. Once you come out to guard him he will kill you by going to the basket. Very strong rebounder and in excellent shape. Two years ago he played in Leb Silver, Spain, I would look for him to go back to that level or a good start for him would be Switzerland.

Matt Fogarty (203-F-90)
Matt had an excellent ESL Orlando event and was the best inside big man in the event. Matt has a very nice outside shot from mid-range or 3. Runs the floor extremely well and has a number of moves around the basket and finishes like a professional. Matt is a solid defensive player and rebounder.
This kid is a steal for entry level teams in Europe, he will easily be a very effective player for entry level teams.

Orlando ESL First Day went very well as teams are selected! - Jul 13, 2012

First day of Orlando ESL in the old Orlando Magic training facility went very well as Coach John Spezia put the guys through the NBA pro style drills and teams were selected. The excitement is high here as the NBA summer league is in town as well and our hotel is literally two blocks from the practice facility. Most players who are staying at the Sheraton hotel have been bumping into NBA players, scouts, coaches and gms as they are staying at the same hotel. We had a couple of practice games tonight and a few trades were made to even things out and make the teams competitive. Several players stood out tonight, but we have two more days to go, so I am sure many more will start to shine. Players will now play 6 games in the next two days as the guys will have to show they are in shape as these days will be long and tiresome and we look forward to the scouts that will be coming in.


ESL thanks PMS Basketball Club and Torino, Italy and here are the top five performers! - Jul 8, 2012

Torino, Italy ESL was a success and we know that PMS Torino and Torino, Italy is going to be the home of all future Europe ESL events. We could not have asked for a better host than Julio Trovato , the general Manager of PMS Torino and Federico Paci our long standing Italian agent partner, who resides in Torino. PMS is a first class organization, with first class facilities, no question about it. Also, with the amount of coaches, scouts and gms who showed up from Italian pro teams was incredible. For those players who missed this event they surely missed a golden opportunity to get there foot in the door of playing in Italy, which is one of the hardest countries to get into for import players. We chose a top 5 performers list because this ESL is a little different than the past ESLs as we had the elements of weather to deal with and some players arriving late from traveling difficulties. Therefore, we had two sessions a day with morning sessions being intense workouts with Coach Daniel Jusup . The morning sessions would be similar to what an NBA team would put their guys through or even free agents who come into workout for them. This is why ESL clearly separates itself from other camps or leagues, because they do not have any individual instruction groups or fundamental drills before guys play like we do. Usually, these camps just divide teams and play up and down without scouts, coaches or gms seeing what the fundamentals or learning styles of the players are like. Our games are always very organized and precise with pro set offenses run. Here in Torino, Italy we played 3 games and 3 workout sessions, which worked out perfectly. Players here had a chance to be coached one on one by legendary coach Daniel Jusup and have pro teams watch them are incredibly lucky. Coach Jusup is one of the best at the teaching the game to players which is second to none.

Top 5 performers, Torino, Italy
Corey Shontz (185-PG-89, college: John Carroll), Bulut Altin (187-PG-93), Davide Curletti (205-F-90), Ruben Silva (192-F) and Matija Poscic (205-C-85, college: De Paul)

Corey Shontz is a very solid point guard who is quietly athletic. He is quick, jumps well and can get to the rim. He has great range and is an extremely good person. There is no question he will be an asset to any team and because of this ESL in Italy, he is waiting for a call about several workouts with pro teams in Europe.

Bulut Altin is a pure point guard with a European flair about him. He can handle the ball tremendously and has great court vision. He has a very good pull up jumper and can score when he needs to. Very talented young prospect who we see as being a very high level player with a couple more years of experience.

Davide Curletti is a finesse type player who can play the power forward and small forward positions. Davide is very mobile player who battles around the basket and has a very nice shooting touch. Runs the floor extremely well and is a very intelligent player. Davide will be receiving his Italian citizenship and will be an asset to any Italian team he plays for.

Ruben Silva is a strong 2-3, who probably is more of a 2 than 3. Ruben can guard anyone from the 1 to the 3 and is a very intelligent player. Ruben is an extremely good shooter who has tremendous range from 3 point land. Look for Ruben to play at a high level one day as he is still young and would benefit by going to a nice mid-level program where he can gain some solid experience. However, dont be is surprised if he reaches a high level sooner rather than later.

Matija Poscic a very strong player with an NBA body. He runs the floor extremely well and has a very nice jump shot. Very quick and athletic, he can guard a big 3, 4 and 5 with no problem. He will create major match up problems for teams who use him the right way. He can stretch the floor or post you up. He is a relentless rebounder who will battle you inside. Nice moves around the basket with nice jump hooks from either hand. Matija will make any team at any level happy they took him.



Torino, Italy ESL day 3 cools off, but the game does not! - Jul 7, 2012

Again, for the third day in a row, the town of Torino came out to see the game tonight and the players did not disappoint. Also, four more Italian Pro teams showed up. Weather cooperated with us tonight as the rains came in off and on today to cool things down in Torino. However, the game was very intense and a high scoring affair. This game was the last of the past three days and the players played a tremendous game as Milano and Torino battled for much of the game until Milano just pulled away for a 127-93 victory. Leading the way for Milano was Bulut Altin (187-PG-93) as he was just on fire tonight pouring in 37 points and 9 assists. Helping the cause for Milano was Matija Poscic (205-C-85, college: De Paul) who was unstoppable underneath as he had 23 points and grabbed 31 rebounds with 2 blocks. Ruben Silva (192-F) had 33 points and 15 rebounds with local national team player, Lorenzo Baldasso (190-G-95) adding 17 points for Milano.

Yes, it was hot in Torino Italy the second day in a row with 3 pro teams from Italy showing up for the day. The players worked their but's off as they would go through an NBA type combine session in the morning run by Coach Daniel Jusup.

Both games were very competitive, but first game for sure was the better of the two. In the first game of the evening, Milano beat Torino 40 35. The second game, with a short break in between, was a repeat of the first with Milano beating Torino 49-29. The atmosphere was good in the gym all evening as many fans filled into the gym to catch a glimpse of the ESL and local national team player Lorenzo Baldasso (190-G-95).

Despite the heat, Torino ESL has a great first day! - Jul 2, 2012

Yes, it is hot in Italy, just like it is in most of the United States, but now we know why Torino, Italy was chosen to host the 2006 winter Olympics as the city is absolutely amazing and the people are just as well. ESL is very happy to have chosen Torino as the host city for the European ESL this season and looks to be a favorable host city for years to come. ESL is very proud and honored that legendary Croatian coach Daniel Jusup came to Torino, Italy to run the workouts for the players of this ESL. Coach Jusup led the workouts with scouts and agents from Italy on hand, however, the hot, humid weather could not stop the tremendous work that the players put forth tonight. Players arrived the last three days and some today, but all worked hard and competed as Coach Daniel Jusup put the players through a strenuous workout before the evaluation games. During evaluation all coaches agreed on how the teams were set up and we are all set for the next two days. Several players impressed early today, especially the play of Corey Shontz (185-PG-89, college: John Carroll), who got here just one hour before practice and you would have thought that he lived here. He played with intensity, very hard and smart basketball. In fact, one Italian level division 2 scout left here asking us many questions about him as a person and said that they will be back in the next day to see him again. Ludovico Rivoira (200-F-87), a local Italian player played well, as did Davide Curletti (205-F-90) from Northwestern University who has family here in Torino, Italy.
