Check out 6’2 Amari Bailey’s first OFFICIAL Ballislife highlights mixtape from his 7th grade (Age 12) school season!
Playing with and against Chicago’s top 8th graders Amari dominated at all times, consistently leading his Skinner West Elementary Public School team in scoring, rebounding, assists and blocks.
Many of the games became running-clock affairs when Amari almost singlehandedly blew out the opponents.
Amari’s game doesn’t remind us of one single player but he’s drawn local comparisons to Shaun Livingston and (young) Michael Beasley. Who do you compare his game to?
Ballislife will continue following Amari and other top middle school players and teams this season.
