During the 4th annual Ballislife All-American game last weekend, we had a lot of conversations about our past events and players and the one name that kept coming up was Aquille Carr aka The Crimestopper. The lighting fast 5’6 Aquille played in our 2013 game right before taking off to play overseas on a NBA legends tour and then making a stop in the D-League with the Deleware 87ers.
In 10 games with the 87ers, Carr averaged 10.7 points and 1.9 assists in 13.8 minutes but the numbers are a bit misleading as he didn’t play much in most of the games but would occasionally explode in the games he did get minutes. There was a 22 point game where he played 19 minutes off the bench and another game where he scored 10 points in 3 minutes and 20 points in 10.
The one consistent thing about his game in limited minutes or not was the excitement. So much excitement that he actually has a season mix – pretty impressive considering he played less than 200 minutes during the whole season.
Next stop for the YouTube phenom is the $500k Basketball Tournament going down in Philly on June 6th and then hopefully the NBA.
