One On One Feat. Myles Dread (Metro Sixers)

Myles Dread (Metro Sixers)   

Myles Dread was one of the most impressive players I saw at John Lucas Future Of The Game Camp this summer in Hampton, Virginia. His play and ability to be a match up problem caught my eye immediately. He finished the camp as one of the top players. This season he played in both Spotlight events and helped his team reach the final four of the Clash For The Cup. We reached out to the Metro Sixers star and here’s what he had to say. 

One On One 

BS: What’s your biggest moment at a Basketball Spotlight event? 
MD: Winning a Bball Spotlight tournament at 10U with only 5 players. 

BS: Who’s the toughest player you ever faced? 
MD: Corderius Hastings-GA United 

BS: What are your goals for the season? 
MD: To become a better player and a better teammate, while I learn as much about the game as I can. 

BS: Who’s your favorite player and why? 
MD: LeBron James because he is a physically dominant player on both ends of the floor. I would like my game to resemble his as I work on my skills. 

BS: What is the strongest aspect of your game? 
MD: Playing in the high post and leading the break in transition. I get double teamed a lot so I try to find my teammates for easy baskets. 

BS: What part of your game needs the most work? 
MD: I need the most work on my perimeter jump shot. 

BS: What’s your dream college? 
MD: Oregon is my dream college. 

BS: Who would you love to have dinner with and why? 
MD: Coach K - I would like to have dinner with him to hear stories of the great players he coached and his experience at the Olympics. 

BS: Give me one word to describe your game. 
MD: Winner. 

BS: Give me one word to describe Basketball Spotlight events. 
MD: Challenging.
