The Eurobasket Summer League in Salt Lake City announces the following players to the 2008 All Tournament Team:
The MVP of the ESL in Salt Lake City is Kenny Walker (206-F/C-80, college: Alabama) (206-F/C-80, college: Alabama).
Kenny played extremely well all three games and came up really big in the Championship game vs. Munich with 21pts and 9rbs.
Every time the Sevilla (Delta Jammers Play to Win) needed some scoring during critical parts of the game where their momentum was slipping it was Kenny Walker who got them big buckets.
In the highly competitive game Kenny was un-stoppable around the basket and showed why he has been playing in leagues like Pro A France.
Eurobasket Summer League (ESL) All Tournament Team (Salt Lake City)
Ryan Williams (196-F-83, agency: Tank Sports, college: St.John's): He only played two games but scored 25 and 36 in each contest and was phenomenal and had some show-time dunks. This guy has a NBA body and the crazy athleticism and attacked the basket with an array of moves. If he would have played the final game he definitely would have been MVP and the game would have been a lot easier for the Sevilla team.
He will make a team in Europe looking for a very athletic swing very happy.
Travis Knight (211-F/C-74, college: Connecticut) (211-F/C-74, college: Connecticut): He played extremely well in the ESL in Salt Lake City and was in a lot better shape than in the Las Vegas ESL. Travis was excellent in the pick and pop plays as he shot the jump shot very well.
His rebounding and defensive presence was a big factor in all three games and you could see why he played in the NBA for seven (7) years. He will definitely be a still for a team looking for a power forward in Europe. He is better at the power forward spot playing with another quality center in the middle.
Rick Cardoso (201-F-85, college: Cal.St.-Stanislaus) (201-F-85, college: Cal.St.-Stanislaus): He is a very long and athletic player who is very versatile and has a really nice inside and outside game. He is a great rebounder and blocks a lot of shots coming from the weak or help side.
We like the way he put the ball on the ground and had some very smooth moves and showed his sneaky athleticism with a lot of dunks in the ESL. He also had a good outside jump shot. He was a nice surprise and can play in Europe right away in the entry level markets and be a star. He has the potential to play at a high level in Europe once he gets some experience.
Marcus Watts (201-F, college: Chattanooga): This guy was unbelievable and was an offensive force with a variety of slick moves and ball-handling skills combined with a NBA range jump shot. Marcus was in the wrong system in college and is a nice big guard or small forward for a quality European team. Marcus was the leading scorer in the Salt Lake City event and had people jumping out of their seats with his finishing skills with both hands around the basket and nice creative dribbling skills ending with jump shots from all over the court. Marcus is a player who will have a great career in Europe and at the big guard spot should be on a NBA Summer League team in 2009. Against the high quality Sevilla team who had serious pros and played great defense he gave them 24pts in the first half and had Travis Knight saying this kid can really play
Marcus Heard (201-F-84, agency: 540 Sports, college: De Paul) (201-F-84, agency: 540 Sports, college: De Paul): All weekend he showed why he made the CBA All Rookie Team using his athleticism and nice shooting ability and rebounding. Marcus is very talented but will need a good situation in Europe to bring his game to the next level.
Mensah Sadikki Taylor (198-F-80, college: Gardner-Webb): He had a great weekend in Salt Lake City and showcased his all around talented game. He is amazing off the dribble and has a sweet jump shot and at 66 he is extremely quick and can beat anyone off the dribble to the basket. He is very athletic and definitely should play at a higher level than the secondary leagues in Germany where he has been totally dominant.
Melvin Jones (206-F-84, college: St.John's) (206-F-84, college: St.John's): This guy maybe was the most talented all around big man that we saw this summer at all of the ESL events. Melvin is a legit 610 & 260lb athletic big man with amazing footwork and nice moves around the basket. He was very athletic and unleashed some thunderous dunks and block shots during the weekend. Last season he put of some serious numbers in South America but needs to be in Europe due to his upside potential. His 28pts, 20rbs and 7blk performance was amazing in the last day of the ESL. He has the potential to play in leagues like Italy and Spain.
Troy Gwynn (196-G/F-80, college: Evergreen St.): He was one of the most athletic guys in the ESL and probably had over 12 dunks in three games and he really flourished in the transition game. He has a serious pro body and if he develops a consistent jump shot his game will be at the next level. He goes to the basket very well and just out jumps the opposition easily.
Marlo Saunders (196-F-84, agency: IceBasket): This guy is a stud and played with a lot of heart during the weekend in Salt Lake City. Marlo is super athletic and attacks the basket with lots of intensity and is a natural scorer with a decent jump shot. Against Sevilla he was probably the lone bright spot for the Rotterdam team and he took his game to another level compared to his team mates who were overwhelmed. Marlo did a little bit of everything and is a quality prospect for Europe.
Kevin Mitchell (188-G-80, college: UTPA): Kevin played well all weekend despite being on a team that lacked size and talent. He made great decisions as a point guard and shot the jump shot extremely well. He had nice quickness and was a heady player that can run a team. He is a quality point guard that should land in Europe on an entry level team.
Maurice Spillers (199-F-74, college: Utah St.): This guy was like a true warrior playing against boys in the ESL. He is super athletic with a million dollar body and was relentless in attacking the basket. In the championship game his post up game vs. Munich was very intimidating as he bullied the smaller players in the post and got to the free throw line at will. He all around floor game is of the highest quality as he plays excellent defense and gets a lot of steals and rebounds. He is a real professional player and was a big reason Sevilla won the championship.
Nathan Green (203-F-75, college: Idaho St.) (203-F-75, college: Idaho St.) (203-F-75, college: Idaho St.) (203-F-75, college: Idaho St.) (203-F-75, college: Idaho St.): Nate played in the ESL in Las Vegas and made the All Tourney team there and played even better in Salt Lake City. He is a true professional with a great inside outside game and his rebounding game is at the next level. He has the best hands that a lot of coaches at the ESL could not believe. In Salt Lake he shot the outside jump shot extremely well and he post up game is high-quality.
He can play in the big leagues in Europe very easily and showed why he averaged 17ppg and 9rbs in the CBA. He is definitely a six figure player in Europe.
Nick Covington (188-G-85, college: Oklahoma City): He was the best point guard in the ESL in Salt Lake City by a far margin and was one of the best point guards in the ESL events all summer. Nick has a strong body and has great ball-handling skills and a big-time jump shot. He has the potential to be a Euroleague player and play at the highest level in Europe. He was the class of the ESL in Salt Lake City and was a one point loss away from being the MVP. Nobody in the ESL could stop this young man who played in Ireland last season and won a NAIA Championship with Oklahoma City in 2006-07 and was an All American.
This kid can play at a high level in Europe right now and almost had two triple doubles in the ESL. Any guard with his skill level and excellent jump shooting ability should be making six figures in Europe.
He is one of three players who are big time sleepers in the ESL that we saw this summer.
Isaac Spencer (198-F-78, agency: Tank Sports, college: Murray St.): Isaac has pro experience and a nice high quality pro game. He showed his skill level and experience in the ESL and was very impressive scoring, rebounding and passing all weekend.
He is very strong and is a nice athlete who just has a higher level of understanding of the game. Isaac is a pro that will fit the bill of a lot of teams in Europe looking for a quality forward.
Kurtis Rice (200-F-82, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: Charleston So.): Rice is Nice should be his nick name. Kurtis is a sensational swing player who is very athletic and is all about skills. He can hit the long range jumper, he can score in the mid-range in bunches.
He also can take the ball to the hoop and create off the dribble very well and finish over the rim. He was just simply awesome in the ESL and averaged around 28ppg and 9rbs. I could not keep my eyes off of him during the ESL and I know he will get a job professionally in Europe ASAP. Get the DVDs from the ESL in Salt Lake City if you need a quality swing and watch Kurtis Rice who is very nice.
Gordon Chase (188-F-86, college: Georgetown, KY): Gus is the most unique player in the ESL due to his size, skills and power. Prior to the ESL a lot of people talked about the young man who was the NAIA Player of the Year Runner Up.
He is only 63 and 240lbs but he dominates inside and against real power forwards. He has a throw back game similar Adrain Dantley who knows how to use his very strong body to the maximum.
Gus Chase has NBA Old School moves and a great face up game around the basket with a great mid-range jump shot. He is so strong he just bullies players who are bigger than him around the basket.
He is very deceptive with his ball handling skills and moves to the basket. He is probably a genius when it comes to tricks and moves using his body around the basket like AD.
Emmanuel Little (196-F-85, college: N.Dakota): This guy made the ESL All Tourney team in Chicago and is one serious player and competitor. He is very athletic and is always around the ball and is a fierce defensive player. He plays above the rim and is a classic slasher and runs the lanes like a deer.
Emmanuel has a decent jump shot and should play in Europe and will fill up the stat line quicky as he does everything and has the potential to play at a very high-level.
Eurobasket Summer League (ESL) Salt Lake City All Big Man Team:
Lawrence Blackledge (203-F-86, college: Marquette): This guy was super athletic and was the X-Factor in the championship game. He had a super tip dunk that brought the crowd out of their seats.
He is very long and he is a great shot blocker. He will need more experience but could be a serious player in the future.
Marcus Saunders (203-F/C-84, agency: IceBasket, college: Texas-PB): Marcus had a quality ESL tourney in Salt Lake City and was very athletic and had a lot of nice dunks and rebounds. He also displayed a nice shooting touch and showed why he played professionally in Spain last season.
Marcus King-Stockton (206-F-85, college: Colorado): Marcus rebounded very well and had a couple of nice scoring games in the ESL in Salt Lake City. Has the potential to play at a high level in Europe but needs to be more agressive and stronger offensively. He has a nice long and athletic body and blocks shots well.
ESL Coach of the Year - 2008 (All Cities included): Glen Hayes
Glen Hayes was the ultimate professional in the ESL this summer and had a positive personality with the ESL staff, players and officials.
He was very entertaining as he coached and often cracked jokes with the referees and opossing players during the game.
He was very well organized and in the Las Vegas event he had the best drill stations according to the players.
Our Las Vegas event had the most competiton and he won the event with a team that lost their enforcer in the middle Glen Elliot due to injury.
His pressure defense tactics, organizational skills and offensive schemes was the reason his team won the ESL event in Las Vegas.
He was constantly up roaming the sidelines encouraging his team with positive feedback and he got the best out of his bench using these tactics.
Glen Hayes is a veteran coach with international experience who deserves a quality coaching job in Europe.
