    I gotta go with Marble, in a league like this (that is barely above playground ball) his skills make him the best player available.

    I took White. Who did you select Miller? My guess is that you took Marble...

    I took Mel for pretty much the same reason.

    1) marble
    2) white
    3) gesell
    4) ogelsby
    5) clemmons

    those are how i would put the top 5. my opinion is based on the fact that ptl is more like aau which is pretty wide open so guard play is big.

    This. Marble is the best on the list at creating his own shot and taking people off of the dribble, IMO.

    Go Hawkeyes. Go Eagles. Go Cubs. Go UNI Panthers (except when they're playing the Hawks, of course).

    But Mel cannot play the point nor does he beat many players off the dribble.

    BTW, is Marcus Paige playing in the PTL? I see Hlas tweet back to JDM with Paige as his first pick.

    I picked Devyn. Guard league, ball in hand, good at getting his own shot off.

    I'd take Gesell and hope that his old team mate from AAU Tanner Williams was on his team as well. You would see some monster alley oops.

    Marble. He's good off the dribble and can play more than one position.

    I picked Cole poor fella deserves some love. He was the Roger Dangerfield of the recent Hawks I swear. Didn't know he was going to be back for it. Hope he doesn't get on same team as Woodbury. Woodbury could learn alot by having to bang against him a few times. As far as if I was seriously trying to build a team to win the league It would be close between Marble and Gessell. I just remember years ago when little Brody Boyd threw in 50 in a game. Not sure if Gessell is that good but ball handling shooters are the difference makers.

    I would take Mel. He's the most athletic guy in a league that is slightly more unstructured and open-court oriented than normal. He will almost certainly be in the top five in the league in points, rebounds, and blocks.

    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-
