    Legendary duel.
    Lol highlights are always deceiving
    However we can't ignore the fact that they still remain to be considered as top prospects from their high schools... Or unless they don't deserve all this hype yet the media in the U.S wants to keep concentrating on how talented they are.

    Despite Carr being committed to Seton Hall, he said in an interview with the Baltimore Sun that he is not ruling out to foregoing college and instead, play professionally abroad.

    Carr is allegedly going to announce this weekend that he is turning pro. Hope it works out for him but there seems to be an element of fantasy involved.

    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.
    Aquille Carr had a brawl with an opposing player early in the game and both were sent off. Daquan Cook scored 33 pts in the final and was obviously named the Tournament's MVP (and crowned by legendary coach and journalist Dan Peterson). Game score: Team US Elite-Select 86 - Crabs Rimini 66. Top scorer of the tournament was the phenomenal Czech forward Martin Kriz (born 1993) who also led the Junior NT in scoring (and rebounding) later that year at the U18 Euro Championships.

    Do you know who else was on that US team besides Carr and Cook?

    Besides Carr and Cook, Canadian guard Justin Edwards, of 1992, played very well in the final game, another Canadian was 6-6 forward Mikyle McIntosh (1994), then 6-1 Kevin Muzzi (1993) and 6-1 Caleb Miskelly (1993) were mentioned as well.

    Here a couple of still-alive links:

    P.S: Matt Gorski (1992, 7-0) and his brother Nick (1994, 6-8) also played in the winning team.

    Aquille Carr is confirmed to skip college.
    He will attend the Adidas Eurocamp (Treviso, Ita - June 8-10) and likely play next season in Italy or Germany.
    He could be eligible for the 2014 NBA Draft.

    Or perhaps in China?

    Carr already sounds like a Chinese league veteran:

    “It feels good. I came out here with an opportunity to show my talent and they really appreciate me,” Carr said of his time in China playing alongside T-Mac, Jason Williams, and Co. on the tour. “I love the atmosphere, the fans and the games here. The only thing is the food, but I’m trying my best to get used to that."
