Adidas Gauntlet: Preview

The adidas Gauntlet brings some of the best talent in the country together in one place, and this weekend it is Indianapolis. Here is a preview of the event.

Where: Indianapolis, Indiana

Date: May 16-18

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Teams: Game Elite, Indiana Elite, Eric Gordon, Team Loaded, Atlanta Celtics, Colorado Hawks, Dream Vision, Compton Magic, Mass Rivals, Minnesota D1, Ohio Basketball Club, Texas Select, Stackhouse Elite, Florida Elite

Top Players: Jaylen Brown, Marcus Sheffield, Kobi Simmons, Justin Simon, Carlton Bragg, Thon Maker, Dennis Smith, De'Ron Davis, Ray Smith, Tyler Dorsey, Deng Adel, Braxton Blackwell, Josh Langford, Kaiser Gates, Eron Gordon, Jalen Adams, Josh Sharma, Payton Pritchard, T.J. Leaf

Looking Forward To: This is the second event on the adidas circuit and it should be an excellent one. Jaylen Brown has taken the spring by storm with his play, and he might be the most entertaining player in the class. Still the biggest matchup of the weekend has to be Kobi Simmons going against Justin Simon. Both are long and athletic combo guards with a ton of natural ability, and it will be interesting to see how they match up with each other. Also the continued development of Ray Smith is big combined with seeing how a player like Carlton Bragg does against Josh Sharma. Beyond that this will be my first look at point guard Payton Prichard who has garnered big time attention with his play.
