    Yo Sino! The majority of these players are like the greatest prospects born in 1995...

    This link has a lot of the names mentioned (from Europe) so you can click on each name and get more details...

    As for the main stars like Wiggins (from Canada)... this kid is like the next big thing and has awesome potential...

    Some articles:

    Dusan Ristic who played an amazing game in this Jordan Brand Classic is also one of the really big names...

    Rule number 1: never fully trust sources like that. There's no even E.Šeškus.... http://www.lithuaniabasketball.com/p...as-seskus.html

    from draftexpress twitter

    DraftExpress: Been a frustrating 2nd half for Mario Hezonja, but he just made up for it with a huge dunk. Very athletic for a European wing. #JBClassic
    2011-04-16 04:54:22
    DraftExpress: Andrew Wiggins is about as smooth and athletic a wing prospect as you'll find at this age. Just turned 16 two months ago. That's scary.
    2011-04-16 04:13:13
    DraftExpress: Mario Hezonja has been awesome all week. Great size for a wing, very athletic, can really shoot, and can get to the rim & finish very well.
    2011-04-16 04:10:04
    DraftExpress: When scouts look back at this #jbclassic game in 3 years, they'll probably say- "that was the 1st time I saw Mario Hezonja & Andrew Wiggins"

    But don't you find interesting that he is selected for Jordan Brand Classic but isn't among top prospects rated there? Those ratings are really joke. Only top prospects are numbered better but others with very old information, not following their progress.

    well that's normal, it's hard to catch all players especially u-16 before they get first good picture at u-16 championship. hezonja who is now 4th was nowere before they had chance to see him at euroleague junior tournament. i can tell that from croatia marinelli, bosnjak and jelenek are better prospect then k. zganec (who is ok, but doesn't have big potential) especially down the road but they are not on list. but that's normal because their clubs were not in tournamets that were coverd by their site....anway it's not like it's so much important to be listed in prospect list on this type of sites
    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    I forgot to check back on this thread...

    Maybe these "Eurohopes" guys weren't getting appropriate exposure for the Lithuanian players from this generation since if i'm not mistaken they didn't mention one name of a player from Lithuania who was born in 1995...

    The important thing is that Šeškus managed to play in the Jordan Brand Classic and that for him is way more important than seeing his name being mentioned on this site

    And he showed himself pretty well. I know they that can't gather all information but my point is that you shouldn't take that ratings too seriously.
