JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
After talking with a bunch of high school hoopers at the City of Palms Classic last week, I’ve gotta say that I’m a little disappointed that most won’t be unwrapping any toys this year.
Most want Jordans, video games, gadgets, clothes… Boring.
Where are the remote control cars, the Nerf guns, the Legos?
I get it; you’re too old and mature, but is it really Christmas without toys?
At least give me that little remote control helicopter that’s at every mall kiosk in America.
WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …
“All-time leading scorer in Tech bball history! Gotta thank my teammates; without them nothing would be.” – Arsenal Tech (Indianapolis) forward Trey Lyles
