Below: How we have some dunkers, the Star-News dominated us in the dunk contest last year, just too much athleticism. It’s kind of tough when your best dunker is Nogales coach Ricky Roper … Tune in, you’ll see what I mean.

    Where is miles? Is he not playing?

  • FredJ

    Workman’s Bobby Miles is unavailable, I’m disappointed too. Apparently he will be in Las Vegas on Saturday for some type of other basketball related event.

  • Those were ballers!

    Fred any video on Willie Trimble’s sick dunks a few years back or how about Jon Joe’s ?Those were the days!!!

  • coach


    Bobby Miles is available for the game. He was not available when the dates first came out but he is going to be able to play in the all star game. If someone could contact him that would be great.

  • Been dumped

    coach – so who would you like Fred to tell they can’t play now that Bobby has decided he could grace us with his presence? he had his chance – said no – and was replaced. I think he can go find another game to play in.

    It’s like askin’ that girl to the Prom who’s waiting for something better – then she comes back and says yes after you already have another date. SORRY!

  • pride

    Oh yes because we really want to see mr. Wong play. The most recruited player in the senior class and you feel he should be denied. If he is then he is, but to say nobody would care to see him play is absurd.

  • reality

    “the most recruited” guy in the valley? I must have missed his signing announcement on signing day, I was watching the ESPNU high school press conferences and must have missed Mr Miles there too?

    I remember reading a couple days ago that Jordan Salley signed already. Wouldn’t that then make HIM the most recruited player – since his recruiting actually netted him something? Unless of course Citrus or MSAC counts?

  • Pac-10

    He will be in the Pac 10 before anyone else. Did salley play this year? No didn’t think so

  • LMAO

    even worse!
    He was outrecruited by an injured dude that didn’t even play!


    How about Sally why isn’t he playing?

    How about the two Mc Donald’s All American, are they signed yet?
