But in the end you are saying to those kids & there parents that you are not good enough to compete. Why isnt this young man team playing in the Ky AAU state.
    I've been attending this event for a few years now and I promise you...it's a big deal to the players and coaches.

    What about that Kids spot you take away because you bring in a STUD? That's a bigger deal. I love this game as much as the next. Hoop Dreams should've played in the State. Must not be that big of a deal to them.

    Some teams/coaches would rather be a sell out, than keep the integrity and respect of the program they've built up.

    Kudos to all those who do it the right way. No wonder the AAU scene gets a bad rap from most.

    Is this kid going to be sitting on the bench? We can be assured Mr. Goodin will get 30+ min if needed. I think this will take someone spot.

    You can also be assured that Mr. Stallworth has 3 regular players who can't play this weekend so he's actually still 2 short.

    It wouldn't matter to me either way but it's not important now anyways.

    Almost every team in the AAU State tournament has picked up new players for this weekend. Yet, Manimal is the only team everyone chooses to talk about. I don't care either way but that is bizarre.

    I have no beef w/Manimal or any other team. I was giving my thoughts on picking up a player that already has been playing for weeks now. One AAU coach told me one time players come & player go and is a true statement, but coaches keep trying to recruit at early ages instead of taking the players they already have and making them better. It happens in High School to. They are not many player like Mr. Goodin in the state and he will almost certainly make a difference in Team Manimal winning. Is C. Miller playing this weekend with Manimal?
