Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Pending Explosion

Just call this month the calm before the storm.
Next month, Rochester alum James Young WILL erupt like a volcano on the college basketball floor with the Kentucky Wildcats.
Word out of Lexington is that Young, a 6-foot-6 ½ FAB FROSH swingman extraordinaire, is blowing the roof off Rupp Arena with his performance in practice.
'Cats head coach John Calapari has told more than one reporter that Young is the best player on his team right now.
Close to 50 NBA scouts have attended preseason workouts to watch him and all have come away wowed.
Several respected talent evaluators are projecting Young a consensus Top 5 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. A few have made it known they think he could go as high as NO 1 OVERALL!!!!
There were A LOT of haters out there the past couple of years (last season's Mr. Basketball award voting comes to mind), people that simply didn't get it with THE OC's "CHOSEN ONE" and chose to deny his inevitable ascension.
They will be devouring a feast of crow in the very near future.
