Adidas Gauntlet: Preview

Disney World never takes a back seat to anyone, but the Adidas circuit hosts an event this holiday weekend north of Orlando that will feature its strong talent stable.

Where: Orlando, Fla.

Date: May 23-26

Reporting Staff: Evan Daniels, Josh Gershon, Rob Harrington

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 (pictured, above), Braxton Blackwell, Josh Langford, Kaiser Gates, Eron Gordon, Jalen Adams, Josh Sharma, Payton Pritchard, T.J. Leaf

Looking Forward To: This is the third and final event of the Adidas round robin series, which will culminate in Las Vegas this July. The circuit has boasted strong teams and several emerging names, and during the April live period quite a few college coaches spoke highly of the event held that weekend in Dallas. The goal here is to put eyeballs on players some of us have yet to see this spring, and thus set the stage for the next huge national — and affiliation-free — event: the NBPA Top 100 Camp in June.
