good I think players are, I think Armada is the best. Hes number one. He just has the most skill, the most cons Antworten

Growing up with a dad who was a longtime member of the Harlem Globetrotters, McKenzie Forbes never had a shortage of moves or basketball tricks in her back pocket.Two years ago, she decided to master spinning a basketball on her finger.She practiced relentlessly -- before school, in between homework assignments and during TV commercials. When she timed herself against her dad, Sterling Smooth Forbes, she surprised even herself. Her dad lost the ball after four minutes. She went much longer: 6 minutes, 12 seconds.It was crazy because I had worked so obsessively to get this time, Forbes said. It was a pretty cool moment because he had so much confidence that he was going to beat me.He was like, Theres no way youll spin it longer than me.In a way, Forbes obsession with the trick symbolizes her never-give-up attitude.Her competitive drive is unreal, Folsom coach Lynn Wolking said. Anything where theres a score kept, shes so motivated by winning and not losing.The 6-foot wing, ranked No. 40 in the espnW HoopGurlz Super 60 for the 2018 class, brings a fierce edge -- not to mention her Globetrotter pizzazz --?to Folsom.She routinely pulls off behind-the-back passes during games, a move she has become known for in the Sacramento area. Last year as a sophomore, Forbes averaged 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 blocks per game.Shes got that inner fire, said Wolking, who has known Forbes since she was 3. I know some of the coaches who are recruiting her have mentioned it on multiple occasions.When she was younger, Forbes and her three older brothers -- Mason, 17, Max, 19, and Marcus, 21 -- routinely attended Globetrotter games as VIPs. Sterling taught Globetrotter camps across the nation, which the kids attended.Thats how McKenzie realized basketball is bigger than wins and losses.For us, it was like, OK. This is our dad. We see him every day, Forbes said. We practice with him. We eat dinner with him. But to see the impact he can make and just the smile that you can put on someones face through basketball, that really taught us about the game.Growing up with the boysForbes sampled nearly every sport available as a youngster.She played baseball, soccer and football, mirroring the sports her older brothers liked. When she was 7, the Folsom Junior Bulldog Mighty Mite team named her starting quarterback.?Although the only girl in a program of about 100 boys, she always felt welcome.Everything my brothers did, Forbes said, I was like, OK. Im doing that too. There wasnt really a question about it.She threw touchdown passes to her brother Mason -- the teams receiver -- in her second year.I definitely think it helped with my toughness factor, Forbes said. I love the contact and going to the rim. I think playing football definitely had a hand in that.Forbes played on the gridiron for four years, but her family could see that basketball was her first love. In third grade, she began asking her parents to see local college basketball games in Northern California. She was also hard at work on her ballhandling skills, which her father said has paid dividends already.One of her biggest assets is her ability to handle the ball, Sterling said. Thats a big advantage for kids because theyre not afraid of pressure or being pressed.Forbes played basketball with boys until seventh grade and joined Arizona Selects AAU team after her freshman year at Folsom. For her initial tryout, she and her family drove 12 hours straight to Phoenix.Many weekends, Forbes flies to Phoenix on Friday and comes back Sunday. She has grown accustomed to the travel. When she gets to college, she said it wont be too much of an adjustment to balance school and travel.She just loves the game that much that it doesnt bother her, Sterling said. She sacrifices because she has a vision that she wants to play college basketball at a high level.Spinning to the futureForbes has had college coaches interested in her game since she was offered her first scholarship in eighth grade. She has trimmed her list to California, Stanford, UCLA, Oregon, USC, Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky, Tennessee, Baylor and South Carolina.Last month, she asked her dad to order Pac-12 Network so she can keep a closer eye on programs on the West Coast.I know what Im looking for in a coaching style and staff, Forbes said. I feel like I needed to see that, considering a lot of schools Im talking to are in the Pac-12. It was a necessity.Those closest to Forbes know that wherever she ends up, she will be successful.Anywhere she goes in college, she will be like a sponge, Wolking said. You can go through something one time, and she gets it.The final piece on Forbes preseason list is her 3-point shot.The range is there, but just trying to get it very, very consistent before high school season, she said.If she does, shell leave coaches and fans near and far awestruck, mirroring the astonished looks her father brought to Globetrotter fans around the world. Chris Bassitt Jersey . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Athletics Jerseys China . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. . "Jeff is a hard worker who was an important special-teams contributor for us last season," said Stamps GM John Hufnagel. Stitched Athletics Jerseys .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. Oakland Athletics Shirts . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Its the first day of the worlds largest fighting game tournament, the Evolution Championship Series, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Nearly 15,000 competitors have gathered to compete in nine different fighting games, with over 2,300 of them competing in Super Smash Bros. Melee.In a sea full of people, there stands a man with a Pikachu hat and an Arizona flag on his back. Jeffrey Axe Williamson is a legend, someone whos been on top of the Super Smash Bros. scene since his first national, Genesis, in 2009. With Pikachu by his side, Axe cemented himself as the ninth best Smash player in the world last year, according to Super Smash Bros. content and analysis site Melee It On Mes SSBM Rank.At Evo 2016, he looks to win it all, something thats never too far out of his reach. Hes been close before, taking fourth at Genesis 3 and fifth at Community Effort Orlando 2016, and he believes that Evo will be his time to shine, albeit not on Fox.I think [I have a shot to win this tournament.] Ive already beaten most of [the gods] a couple of times in the past, and a couple this year and I feel like its really doable, Axe tells I just have to be super on point and I cant be stopped. I know that for sure. Even losers bracket Mango or beast mode Armada, I feel like I can take them to be honest. It takes a lot of preparation and mental power and just feeling well. Theres a lot of little factors I need to be on top of to perform my best.Fifth at CEO is a good indication that Axe can perform as expected, but at Evo, there are nearly 1,800 more players in attendance, in comparison to CEOs 683. Axe says that makes this event infinitely more difficult, and that to win it all, you have to play your best.This tournament has way more players [than CEO], so its going to be a lot harder because all of the top players are here minus Leffen and PPMD, he says. Its going to be very difficult still, but technically its kind of the same top players. More of the top 100 players are here than they were at CEO. A lot of the top 100 players still give me problems, so its going to be a lot more difficult overall, but I feel more ready than I did for CEO.At CEO, he fell to Justin Plup McGrath, another player within the Top 10, who like Axe, is considered a demigod. In Melee, there are five gods: Adam Armada Lindgren, Juan Hungrybox Debiedma, Kevin PPMD Nanney, Jason Mew2King Zimmerman, and Joseph Mango Marquez. Demigods are players within the top echelon who continuously challenge and at times beat the gods, or their counterppart William Leffen Hjelte.ddddddddddddor the past few years, Axe, alongside names like Plup and Weston Westballz Dennis, have become demigods. But none have been able to take it all the way and win super majors, such as Evo, CEO, or Genesis. I ask Axe who is the next player to join the demigods.Normally, its a player thats not currently a top 100, he says. Its usually not a player whos at the top. Im looking at the players who are on the come up. Pretty much the players that come out of nowhere. Its those kind of players who surpass people and enter the top six.So if a new face breaks through, theyll need to beat the Top 10, which is currently not solidified in 2016. Axe, who was among the final list last year, thinks that a new player, Zac SFAT Cordoni, has entered the list, while the remainder of the list, besides DaJuan Shroomed McDaniel, stays the same.The top order is so confusing to order, but based off how good I think players are, I think Armada is the best. Hes number one. He just has the most skill, the most consistency, he explains. Hes crazy, hes a beast. Hungrybox has to be second at this point. Armada, Hungrybox, Mango, Leffen, Mew2King, PPMD, Plup, Axe, SFAT, and Westballz. Wes hasnt been doing so hot lately, but I know he has the skill. Hes hella good.Only one will be crowned the champion of Evo. That opens the field significantly for new people to break through, and Axe thinks as long as he beats Hungrybox and his consistent Jigglypuff, hell have his best shot. Its terrible [to play against Jigglypuff], Axe says. I hate it. I do want to beat Hungrybox really bad. Ive been watching our sets and its doable, so I have a few tricks up my sleeve for that.But above all, he believes that Mango will take the tournament, if he doesnt himself. A previous champion of Evo 2013 and 2014, Mango is favored to repeat and win Evo once again. Hes been outspoken about wanting it all, and practicing a ton to get there. Americas hometown hero has the best shot hes had in quite sometime.Id say Mango has a great shot at first. Mango wants it very badly, and I think that the only way for Mango to win is only if he goes absolute beast mode, Axe explains. The one trait Mango has that all of the other top players dont have, of the Top 6, is the ability to go in the zone, where he has absolute focus and everything is 100 percent different. I think hes going to take the tournament. ' ' '
