Throughout the East and West, there are a handful of snubs and surprises on the list. Guys like Jeremy Lin, Vince Carter, and Lonzo Ball were all surprises according to Mike and Alex. One guy they both saw that should be on the list is Tobias Harris. They go over his case for an All-Star appearance as well as others.
The college season is in full swing as we’ve already seen some upsets and some players rise and fall in stock. Mike and Alex go over some of Basketball Society’s scouting reports and some very early mock drafts and big boards.
