    Default The next Brandon Jennings?

    We all know how some guy named Tyler played in Israel...but this kid here has some nice ball-handling skills. Maybe he won't see a lot of minutes, but the money and to have Roma in your resumee (instead of some mid-major school) don't hurt.

    What about Jamine Peterson? He only played 4 games in Greece but he's draft eligible this year. Of course he played NCAA ball.

    Peterson went to Europe not straight out of high school, so I don't see him in the same light as he is slightly older than the rest (Jennings, Tyler and Carr).

    I watched Carr's highlights damn this guy has mad dribbling skillz. But at just 5'6'' and no Nate-Robinson-esque hops it's hard to imagine him making the NBA in the future. He should take the money and go to Europe may be he can carve out a career out there.

    Strange story. He's a fun player and a huge fan favorite in Baltimore but he's still a 5'6" gunner. Team was favored to win the Maryland state championship this year but he shot 9-32 in the final and they lost.

    Here's the tournament he played in Italy:
    http://www.apl-cap.it/2011-memorial-...alendario.html

    His stats by game:

    vs. BBA Lissone, 8-18 FG, 19 pts
    vs. KK Kukaricki Belgrade, 9-28 FG, 27 pts
    vs. Endesa Tenerife, 12-18 FG, 30 pts
    vs. KK Rijeka, 15-32 FG, 40 pts
    vs. Rimini, 1-7 FG, 2 pts

    He didn't win MVP (that went to his teammate and Baltimore city rival, Daquan Cook), or "best scorer" (some Czech guy). And did he get benched in the final?

    Hard to believe this is true IMO.

    From what I read Virtus Roma offered a $750,000 contract to Carr. I think Carr caught the eye of Italian scouts or moreover team representatives from Virtus Roma when Carr lead a US Team selection to a first place finish at a tournament in Milan last April.

    I also read the same on Rivals but apparently this is not true as mentioned by our friend l'emigrante who posted the below to my link regarding Carr...

    Unsurprisingly Carr is still in Baltimore but he does have a cool nickname:

    The feature game of the MLK Hoopfest Showcase matches Gonzaga against Maryland 4A finalist Patterson, led by rising junior guard Aquille Carr. Just 5 feet 7, Carr plays much larger and goes by the nickname Crime Stopper – because when he plays, everyone comes to watch and crime stops.

    Good article about the Crime Stopper, although they uncritically pass on the story about the Italian contract offer:

    Aquille Carr acquired that brilliant nickname because, as legend has it, all the dealers, hustlers and assorted knuckleheads in east Baltimore shut down business for those two hours every time Patterson has a game.

    “Ain’t no flashing lights,” Tammy Carr says, “until after the game.”

    “Ain’t no way you’re going to try to go kill somebody or rob somebody when Patterson’s playing,” Aquille says. “Naw. They’re coming to see the show first.”

    Rodney Coffield, an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, who until this year doubled as the head coach at the city’s Douglass High, provides confirmation that the legend of the Crimestopper is rooted in truth.

    “All your gangbangers, your drug dealers, people out robbing in the community, all the so-called big G’s — those guys are going to be in there, just to make sure they see this kid play,” Coffield says. “And believe me, there’s money [being gambled] on it — how many points [Carr] scores, stuff like that.”

    I have to agree with Sinobball here.............Carr can really handle but doesn't look explosive enough to be effective in the NBA. He's not going to be able to get those "throw his body into the big man, double pump" shots past an NBA big.

    Sure is fun to watch though. And he still has the best nickname in the business.

    I guess we need to fear sports players who nicknames make them sound like they're innocent good people like "Metta World Peace" and "Crime Stopper"

    Apparently he also scored 56 points at a summer event right after he got arrested

    And this is his latest clip just posted yesterday on Hoops Mix Tape

    Nice! I sure hope you get to see some nice showcasing skills from his side and the game should hopefully be quite enjoyable to watch.

    This was the highlight of the night:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfuDVJl-Bhw

    He scored 38 points on probably about as many shots. Plays with an impossible amount of flair and is certainly worth the price of admission in a high school game. His team was up 2 after the third quarter but went cold in the fourth and ended up losing by 17.
