    Chris Gaynor was pretty filthy. In the Winthrop Hall of Fame.

    The Holcomb-Faye brothers were fun to watch. Won a couple state titles with Coach West at RJR.

    I definitely remember him hitting a shot from just outside the tap circle after the tipoff and then teabagging my center on a dunk 3 plays later.

    I remember going to Orlando to watch this team play:

    I cannot remember all the players on that Kappa Magic roster but it was stacked. They were absolutely filthy.

    That was also the year (if my memory serves me correctly) that I first saw Lebron.


    On a side note: this got me curious about the best AAU teams ever. Check out this list: https://www.legendssf.com/blogs/lege...all-teams-ever

    Some of those teams are absolutely bonkers.

    Well you should remember his off-court shenanigans pretty well:

    -Arrested in 2013 for driving without a license, misdemeanor marijuana possession and a handgun was found outside the vehicle [total coincidence obviously]
    -Like a month later arrested for driving 93 in a 65 [in a 2008 Acura TL lol]
    -The bizarre vehicle swap in 2014 with NFL WR Josh Gordon after a “chance meeting in a grocery store parking lot”
    -Arrested on outstanding warrants in 2017 in Wrightsville Beach
    -Warrant issued on charges of assaulting a female in 2018

    So, you are saying that Hairston has been living on the straight and narrow since 2018?

    Don’t think Travis ever won a state chip, but Whit won some.

    Whit would go toe-to-toe with CP back in the day. Remmeber Whit scored 32 and CP 31 one game... fun to watch.

    Also Mitchel Baldwin was a good HS player. Skip was after him and sad “you have until ____ to take this offer before we go with someone else.” We’ll he didn’t take it and we ended up with some dude named Taron Downey

    that kappa magic team was ridiculous

    i think they had some other wake role players... maybe one of trent strickland, todd hendley, dick joyce maybe?

    if memory serves, carmelo anthony played on one of the NC AAU teams (maybe the gaters?) that summer as well

    that was a crazy period for NC hoops in general... you had the Kappa Magic guys + Felton (in SC), McCants, Eric Williams, Anthony Richardson (McD AA), Shavlik Randolph, Anthony Morrow, etc.

    Justin Gray and Curtis Withers (UNCC) would have both came out of West Charlotte in 2002, but Justin went to Oak Hill for his senior year. Eric Hicks went to Cincy from Dudley High that year.

    Odom recruited Downey & Mitchell Von Bittle Baldwin. Downey verballed to WF after his senior year @ Oxford HS & before his post grad year @ Fork Union(?). Prosser inherited the Downey/Levy/Vytas class.

    Shav-Anthony Richardson sold out Reynolds Coliseum when I was in 8th grade

    Cap 6 also had Shawan Robinson (Clemson) and young Cam Stanley in addition to Shav, Eric Williams, et al
