Stokes finished up a season at St. Benedict's averaging 13 points per game. Once again, Stokes, one of the elite guards in the nation, was in more of a supporting role – he did the same last summer while playing with Wayne Ellington, Gerald Henderson Jr. and Earl Clark with the Playaz Basketball Club.
``It doesn't matter to me," said the 6-foot-5 ½, 215-pound Stokes. "I'm a team player. Points don't matter to me that much. I just like to win."
Stokes said his plan is to play with the Metro Hawks this summer where he may have more of an opportunity to be the go-to guy, but that isn't really all that important.
Stokes already has an NBA body and his perimeter shot is one of the best in the country. He still needs to work on his quickness – both offensively and defensively.
``It's not that I'm slow, but I want to get faster," he said.
``I'll be at all three unofficially," he said.
Stokes and his father, Ernest, are on the same page as far as when a decision will be made.
``If he feels comfortable and his mom feels comfortable, we'd like to get it out of the way fairly soon," Ernest said. "But I want him to be satisfied and confident about his decision, because this is his future we're talking about."
