     Players who are elite basketball talents in their city and town need to come and try out for the 2012 KBA Prodigy games. The concept came together by some of the NBA's greatest players wanting to give back to the community and mentor some of the elite middle school basketball talent in the country.

The event i...s FREE to all players and one parent who make the 12 player roster for the city in which they tryout (You can only tryout in one city). Cities that will be hosting teams in 2012 are Los Angeles, Bay Area, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, Atlanta, D.C. Metro Area, Chicago, Charlotte, New Orleans, Memphis, Detroit, Cleveland, New York, and New Jersey. States that are close to these 16 try out cities can try out in the cities close to them.

Players who compete in the 2012 Prodigy Games will win money for their AAU Team (That have a 501c) and for their middle school. These games have no AAU affiliation and is a one time a year event. In addition the games will be watched by some of the top scouting services, and college coaches in the country. All games will be streamed live on the web for world wide viewing.

Teams will be coached by Ex-NBA players and are intended to bridge the gap between the players and the community. Ex-NBA Mentor coaches who will participate are but not limited to Mark Aguire, Penny Hardaway, George Gervin, Derrick Harper, Charles Oakley, AC Green, Moses Malone, Gary Peyton, Jalen Rose, Bernard King, Rick Mahorn to name a few.

(This should be a great event for all elite middle school players.Great experience for all involved .) NEP

                                   PERRY DOZIER JR.
   Dozier has a very high basketball IQ. His ball handling is outstanding and he is very good at creating space with it. He can shoot the rock with the best of them. Perry has an assortment of floaters and a nice mid range game. With the full package he has, he should remain a high major D1 prospect.
                                                                 Perry's video


                                    JALEN JENKINS
   Jalen's game is very smooth. He has the ability to hurt a team inside and out. He has a high motor and is very athletic. His ball handling is very good and it compliments his mid range game very well. With his height plus his athletic ability,Jalen has a chance to be a good D1 prospect. Updated video N/A

Friday, January 20, 2012


                                     TYLER DORSEY
  Mr. Dorseys game has evolved well over the last two years. He has his mid range game down to a science. He can pic and pop all around the court with ease. His handles are good and he can get to the basket with out any problems. With his height and skill set,he will be a great guard on the D1 level in a few years.
                                                                 Tylers video


                                                   KEJUAN JOHNSON
  Kejuan was a man amongst boys in the middle school era of his career. He had a mans body and game when other players were just starting to fill out and learn the game. Kejuan has a great post game and a good mid range game as well. He can also step out side the arc and knock it down. His ball handling is a work in progress and is getting better daily. This kid will definitely be a good D1 prospect .
                                                                   Kejuan's video

  The  McDonald's All-American game will be held in Chicago March 28th at 8:30pm.  Click here to see the Mcdonald's All American Game Nominees


                                     KING MCCLURE

   King already possesses the body of a star high school senior. To make it even worse (for his opponent's) he has the game to match. He has a very fast first step; which gets him to the rim when ever he feels like it. He can also nail the three and he has an excellent mid range game. He has the tools to be an elite guard at the next level.
                                                                  King's video



                                   MALIK NEWMAN

    Malik Newman has basketball flowing through his veins. His father is Horatio Webster (in picture above) ; a former Mississippi State University basketball star. Malik is a starting guard for Calloway high school out of Jackson,Mississippi. He has ridiculous range on his jump shot and can attack the basket with ease. With a 22.9 points. and 5 rebounds average as a freshman,this kid is destined for greatness.
                                                                   Malik's video


                                                     KARL TOWNS

    Towns is a very versatile big man. He is basically a shooting guard in a bigs body. He has good post moves and excellent outside range. He's good from the block and beyond the 3pt. line. With his ambidextrous style of play Karl has a chance to be an elite player for years to come. Keep a look out for Mr. Towns, because he will eventually be on your favorite college and NBA team!!

                                  JUSTIN JACKSON
     I've been watching Mr. Jackson since last year. He is very athletic and attacks the rim with force and dominance. He has been working on his handles and jump shot and they are getting better by the day. This kid has loads of potential and is only going to get better. Can't wait to see him on the AAU circuit this summer.
                                                            Justin's video


                                                  MICKEY MITCHELL
   I've watched Mickey Mitchell for a year now and the kid is a baller.  His game kind or reminds me of Mike Dunlvey but with a little more smoothness. He has a developing jump shot and is very strong and athletic around the basket. Mickey currently attends Prestonwood Christian and is a starter.   He is a good player and I'm eager to see how will he will develop in a few years.
                                                        Mickey's video


                              STEPHEN ZIMMERMAN
  Zimmerman has a chance to be a very special player. He’s already 6’10″ and still growing. He can play inside and outside like Dirk Nowitzki. He has good coordination and is very agile. He is currently attending Bishop Gorman Prep in Las Vegas. Zimmerman has the potential to be a dominate force in high school as well as college. He has received offers from schools from all around the country. Keep your eyes on this young man!!!!

                     ALGEVON EICHELBERGER JR.

   Big Al,which is what they called him at the Jr. All American camp; has as many youtube videos as he does letters in his name. I saw his videos and was impressed with his skill set. When I got a chance to see him live at AAU Nationals and the Jr. All American camp I was even more impressed.He was blocking shots and keeping penetrating guards at bay. He has great foot work,good post moves and can push the rock up the floor. With hard work,he has a chance to be a really good D1 player.
                                           Algevon Eichelberger JR.s video


                                      HARRY GILES

    I watched Harry Giles at the 2011 AAU Nationals. He has a high basketball IQ for a big man. He fed players the ball form the high and low post when he didnt have a shot and he displayed good post moves as well. He was also a good shot blocker on the defensive end. Once he gets stronger physically and develops more on the offensive end he will be a good D1 player.

                                                             Harry Giles video


                                    DAVION THOMAS

   When you hear people talk about Davion Thomas you usually hear the words "long and lanky". Being long and lanky works out perfect on the court when you have the skills to match. Davion is very aggressive on the boards (he hasn't seen a rebound he doesn't like). He also has a decent inside game. As he continues to improve the offensive side of his game, Mr. Thomas will be one to watch!! (Video N/A)



    I watched  Edrice play at AAU Nationals over the summer. I could tell the moment he hit the floor that he was a very athletic big. He ran the floor well and cleaned up on the boards. At Clay Dades JR. All American Camp, I got a chance to see the offensive side of his game. He has a nice turn around jumper and decent post moves. His upside is that he has a motor that is always in high gear. Click pic for video.

VJ KING (2016)

                                                            VJ KING 
   He gets my vote as having a chance to move up to the number one spot in the class of 2016 rankings. I'm basing this on the mad potential he has . He is not only playing varsity basketball as an 8th grader; he is actually logging minutes (sometimes starting) and scoring. He already has a leg up on most ranked players in the class of 2016. VJ has a tremendous upside. Check out his video above.

                                                    JOSHUA JACKSON

     This kid has game! He is a reclassification from the class of 2015. He is basically a 6'5" shooting guard. Ive seen him in action at several tournaments around the country in 2011 and came away impressed each time. He has ball handling skills. He can easily penetrate and possesses a zone crushing jump shot. I hope to see him at some camps and showcases this summer to see what level his game is at now. (video N/A)


     Mr. Davis is a prospect that hadn't been seen a whole lot on the camp and showcase circuit in the midwest or the south. But he showed up at the John Lucas camp and held his own against other middle school players in the 2016 class. He is agile and has good post moves. With his height and steadily improving skill set, he has a very bright future. Check out the video below.
