Here's a high school basketball player who is the leading scorer on his team. His team had a 13-12 record. He is a 6'3" guard and scored 17.0 points, 3.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds. He did this all as a FRESHMAN.

If he is only 14 years old, he still has some growing to do.

Chris Tang, Hampton Roads Academy (Class of 2014)
Only a freshman, Tang made it clear right off the bat he was there to play, and at a high level he did with a wet jumper and explosive dunk. Rolling his ankle early in the day couldn't stop him as he has a great understanding for the game, is tenacious, has tremendous vision, deceptive athleticism and the ability to make things happen whether it is via the dribble or on the perimeter shooting.

This Chris Tang looks to have a future as he is on the same All-Conference list as James McAdoo - who is projected to be a top-5 NBA pick in 2012. Tang is the highest ranking freshman on this list.

It's going to be a tough road ahead for any point guard. Nevertheless, he could see Jeremy Lin-type success down the line (see "Deceptive Athleticism").

At this point, being a 6'3 point certainly gives him great size already for the spot, but he probably suffers from T-rex disease (short arms, narrow shoulders)...

Hopefully, he'll probably grow at least 2 more inches, because the PG position is truly a dog-eat-dog world. But of course, being competitive, and having a natural feel for the game are indispensible qualities. The fact that he's had success, with a highlight on his passing, this early as a freshman, is a tremendous step.

[size=117]James McAdoo !!!

This kid had been doing great so far.


[color=darkred]
  • Had played great in 2009 FIBA U-16 tournament, and named 2009 male athlete of the year by USA Basketball.
  • Was part of the gold medal winning team in the FIBA U-17 World Championships in Hamburg, Germany in July 2010.
  • Played in this year 2011 Nike Hoop Summit.
And Guo Ailun played against him in most of the above tournament, and will be pitching against him in the forthcoming 2011 FIBA U19 World Championship in Latvia June 30 ~ July 10 too.

And James McAdoo will start playing with North Carolina in the[b] 2011

Well he's currently listed at #3 on nbadraft.net for the 2012 mock draft. Not too farfetched lol.

Also, as chinatown pointed out, there's that "deceptive athleticism" phrase being used again.
