    I went to Ypsilanti and watched this kid play against Hanover Horton (a school in my schools conference), and he got absolutely destroyed. Emoni literally scored 3 points. He’s an overrated ass player who got slaughter by kids literally half his size

    @Kaii SNOWFLAKE is a term for soft people. Was my grammer incorrect? You went for a business major but dropped out im guessing when it got to the critical thinking portion (2000 and above courses, if you really went to college)

    @Kaii why does it matter if you are black or not? I had offers too to play at Ferris, GVSU, and mid major D1 schools. Link up whenever you're at WMU or Kzoo. I already graduated with a great GPA with an engineering degree and bachelor's of science.

    Timothy Slaughter Jr I’m black sir and I live in Michigan πŸ˜‚, actually had scholarships to play but took a education scholarship instead for business .. Nice try though. You said all that to sound smart , but if you go look at the rules in the MHSAA.. you’ll see nothing. I’ll be glad to link up anywhere in the Ypsi , Ann Arbor or Lansing Michigan area with you .. to discus this further ...

    @Joe Stuehmer you're heavily underestimating NBA players lmao. Even the last dude on the worst team's bench would give any highschooler easy buckets. He'll be in the league but to say that he'd hang wt actual NBA players is absurd.
