Ep. 166 - HSBB Top Stock-Risers & Best of Summer + Overseas Camps

On Episode 166 of the revamped Ballislife In The Paint Show, hosts Ronnie Flores, Ani Umana and Chelsea Hopkins dish on this summer's top high school hoops performers and dish on overseas Grassroots camps, particularly the recent Pangos All-Euro Camp.
Ron and Ani breakdown their top three stock-risers of the summer. Why does Ron think OTE's Tyler Jackson was the top stock-riser of the summer? Why does Ani feel big man Jayden Quaintance helped himself more than any other player in the country this summer? Make sure to listen or watch this week’s ITP Scouting Report segment to find out what other two players each felt rose their recruiting stock the most, including undecided prospects Jahlil Bethea and Billy Richmond. 
Chelsea also presses the fellas on their top three performers of the 2023 grassroots season. Why wasn’t Cooper Flagg and Cam Boozer obvious choices for Ron? Derik Queen of Montverde Academy was Ron’s top choice, while Ani felt nobody played better than his high school teammate Flagg, who will not graduate in 2024 to be eligible for the 2025 NBA Draft. Who was Ani’s No. 3 choice as best player of the summer after the big two of Flagg and Boozer? Tune in to find out! 
In our ITP Overseas segment, Ron breaks down the three main differences between grassroots camps domestically and those overseas after coming back from the two-day Pangos All-Euro Camp in Athens, Greece that took place August 9-10. He also dishes on the top performers, including camp MVP, 18-uyear old Noah Penda of France and some of the top young players, such as 14-year old sharpshooter Giorgos Giantsidis of Athens.
This current episode is the start of season six of the ITP Show and the first in our re-vamped format with specific segments and topics. We think you’ll like the pod a bit shorter and more to the point, so make sure to tune in to Episode 166 from start to finish!
