Javonte Smart & Emmitt Williams make Jordan Brand Classic
Both missed out on the McDonals AA game that Naz Reid will be in. But congrats on getting in the Jordan game.

Congrats to both.

Also, judging by some of the names on that list, I'm not sure if "missed out" is the right choice of words. That roster has some damn good players on it.

Why does 1 team have 11 players and the other 14? Misprint?

5 PGs on the away team?

McDonalds is historically known as the best of the best. Jordan himself played in the game. Jordan is the current runner up. Deff nothing wrong with the game but I'm sure both would have love to made the McDonalds roster. They'll probably get better gear playing in the Jordan game lol and it should be televised as well.

Curiously, Bol Bol is listed for both games. I wonder which one he's playing in.

You can play in both. Or at least you could in the past.

I remember the first time I saw Shaq. It was on TV in the Mcdonald's AA game. He dunked and they said his name and he would be attending Louisiana St University.

The rest is history

You used to be able to play in two all star games. They may have changed the rule though.

It used to be just two because I think Adidas or Reebok had one as well but now it's just McDonald's and Jordan so I think they eliminated that rule

Actually he blocked the shot of the opposing center that was going to Syracuse, dribbled the length of the court, with Vitale yelling about him dribbling as a 7 footer, THEN HE SLAMED IT.

Bruh, you may need to rethink that. Times change.

Rankings of players in the Jordan Classic.

#1 RJ Barret
#2 Cameron Reddish
#3 Zion Williamson
#4 Bol Bol
#6 Nassir Little
#7 Anfernee Simmons
#8 Darius Bazley
#9 Tre Jones
#10 Simsola Shittu


And on and on.

Only guy not on that rosters is Langford.

I know the rule at one time was 2 post-season all-star games were allowed. This includes any state affiliated games as well as nationally. IDK what all-star game La. has for bball, but if a player plays in it then they can only play in one other game. Don't know about other states either and don't know if the rule has been changed or not.

re: Javonte Smart & Emmitt Williams make Jordan Brand Classic
The McDonalds game is still considered the more prestigious game of the two although making the Jordan game is still an incredible achievement obviously. People have to remember the Basketball All-Star games aren't like the football games where players choose to either play in the Army game or the UA game. The highest ranked basketball players play in both the McDonalds and Jordan games. If I were to rank the prestige of HS All-American games I would pick
1. Nike Hoop Summit (Only 12 American players get picked)
2. McDonalds All-American game (Longest running and most recognizable)
3. Jordan Brand Classic
4. Ballislife All-American game (The newest postseason all-star game)
5. Kentucky Derby Classic
