Emmanuel Mudiay showed some questionable decision making over the weekend at the Nike Hoop Summit, but he also showed why he has the most pro potential of any guard in his class. Jeff Goodman tweeted something regarding the former Prime Prep (TX) point guard that I definitely agree with; he wrote that Tyus Jones would be a better college point guard, but that Mudiay would be a better pro. Goodman hit the nail right on the head with that analysis, and I am absolutely pumped to watch both point guards play next season. Next up for both of them? They will both compete in the Jordan Brand Classic in three days time.
ESPN’s Chad Ford was at the game, and they were panning to him quite a lot during the broadcast. He was live tweeting about the game, and I noticed because of Ford that Mudiay led the game in scoring.

I probably would not have predicted that before the game, but it is actually not all that surprising since the World Team was facing a bit of a talent imbalance during the game. They made enough three pointers to stay in the game, but ultimately Jahlil Okafor’s force on the low block was too much to handle.
That is all for Rant Sports Prep today, but I will leave you as always with a bit of fortune cookie wisdom.
