In episode No. 43 of our “In The Paint Show,“ co-hosts Devin Ugland and Ronnie Flores go hard on the NBA-China fiasco and break down the recently-published 30-player Ballislife 2010s All-Decade All-American Elite team.
Who were the most difficult picks to make with regards to who made first five and who dropped to second five? Why do so many of our followers feel the third team is so strong? Who were the gut-wrenching choices to leave off of third team?
Two of the All-Decade choices, Stanley Johnson of the Toronto Raptors and Harrison Barnes of the Sacramento Kings, joins us on this special episode to discuss the teams, including the heated social media controversy between Harrison making first five and Johnson making second! What small forward would you have chosen?
Johnson and Barnes also take us down memory lane by discussing their high school journey and offer advice to up and coming young players. This is an episode you don’t want to miss!
