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.

Vegas Baby, Vegas

Big Play Ray has been in Big Play Mode all month down in the desert.
It culminated this week with a championship trophy and MVP award for Oakland County's own Ray McCallum, Jr out in the NBA Las Vegas Summer League.
McCallum, the Birmingham DCD and University of Detroit-Mercy alum, averaged 18 points per game and propelled his Sacramento Kings club to the title. He dropped a 29 spot in the LV Summer League Finals vs the Houston Rockets.
SacTown finished 28-54 in 2014, with the rookie McCallum catching fire down the stretch, eclipsing the 20-point plateau three times in the closing 10 games of the season.
Selected in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft, McCallum appears ready for a breakout sophomore season this upcoming campaign.
While in the Mitten, Big Play Ray was a McDonalds High School All-American and led DCD to a state title in 2010, before going on to suit up for his dad, Ray Sr. with UD-Mercy at the college level where he took the Titans to a conference crown and a trip to the Big Dance aka the NCAA Tournament.
