Word On The Street: Too Much Too Soon!

The Basketball season is right around the corner and things are heating up. There is a lot of player movement and news going on and here are few hot items straight from the press in this edition of Word On The Street.

Taylor Headed Back To IZOD? 
That’s right, a source close to the situation has confirmed that point guard Atiba Taylor will be leaving Team Scan and heading back to play with Team IZOD. This move may surprise many because Team Scan was recently ranked #1 in the region in our Top 10 and defeated rival Playaz at New York’s Funsport. Taylor will be looking to rejoin longtime homies Luther Muhammad and Tyrek Chambers. Could this move inspire a Supreme Team reunion?

Brooks Down To 3 
After the Supreme team breakup Jalen Brooks reclassified and now appears to be a wanted man. Brooks enters the season as one of the top 7th Grade guards in the region but he hasn’t chosen a team yet. My source has him entertaining the likes of Team RIO National, Metro Flyers and Team IZOD. If he joins either RIO or Metro Flyers he would probably bump that team up to the #1 spot in the region. I guess we will know soon with the Tip Off Classic around the corner.

Battle Is All In! 
The Playaz Basketball Club new motto is “I’m All In! So I guess Khalif Battle has brought into the concept because he has joined their squad. Battle gives this talented group a quality wing player for the next few years. We will get a glimpse of him with his new team at the Tip Off Classic.
