The Fab 48 has concluded and although no one would have predicted the teams participating in the championship, it was definitely an exciting last game. Both teams played hard and the KC 76ers used a team effort to top Team Breakdown in the finals. Here are some of the notable performers from the last day:
Jabari Parker (Mac Irvin Fire) - When watching Parker, the talent is obvious for anyone to see. He was the most exciting and impressive player to watch at the Fab 48, but in their last game against the KC 76ers his production left something to be desired for someone who is in contention for a number one ranking. He had some minor troubles with turnovers and wasn't scoring in a way that he is capable of. Having said that, Parker is an incredible talent and will certainly be in contention for the number one spot when we update our rankings.
Ishmail Wainright (KC 76ers) - Wainright seemed to get better as the tournament went on. After not standing out a whole lot by his standards in the first couple games that we saw him, he started to pick up his play and looked dominant in their semifinal game against Grassroots Canada. Wainright has always been a physical and explosive player, but his jump shooting looks like it has improved as he comfortably hit three pointers when left open.
Demetrius Henry (Team Breakdown) - Henry doesn't blow you away with any one thing that he does, but he does a lot of things well and was the most consistent performer for Team Breakdown. He is a good athlete, finished well around the basket, and even showed his range by knocking down some three pointers. He will definitely need to add strength, but when he does he should be a solid contributor to a high-major team.
Chris McCullough (Team SCAN 15s) - The production isn't completely there yet for Chris McCullough, but it doesn't take long to see that he is usually the best prospect on the floor. He screams upside and has an incredible combination of length and athleticism. He is more of a power forward right now, but he moves incredibly well and could very well end up playing small forward at the next level if he's able to make solid strides in his skill development.
