The Education Of Demetrius Walker (A MUST READ)

Demetrius Walker (Actually Photo From The MLK Classic)

This piece about Demetrius Walker is one of the best articles I ever read. Sports Illustrated did a great job. The article gives you an inside look into the world of grammar school basketball years ago. It talks about analyst ranking and raving about players they haven’t seen (I Told You)and the pressures of being labeled as the Next Great One!

They also talk about the MLK Classic in this article and though some of the facts can be disputed because I was actually there (Writing For Metro Hoops) it’s still an amazing piece. The article is 10 pages but it’s worth the time and I heard that this is actually segments from an upcoming book about Walker’s basketball journey. Wow this article brings back so many memories.
