JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
I’ve been hearing reports from preseason scrimmages involving some of the country’s most elite teams and some of them are getting a rude awakening.
Basketball, more than any other sport, has a lot of parity and the three-point line is the ultimate equalizer.
Elite teams better not sleep on these other guys.

Step your game up!
