LAS VEGAS -- The 2013 LeBron James Skills Academy is over, finishing up with the third and final day on Monday. The narrative of the camp is likely to be the performance of No. 2 rising senior Cliff Alexander (Chicago/Curie). Once No. 10 recruit Myles Turner (Euless, Texas/Trinity) went down with an injury, there wasn’t a guy here capable of getting in Alexander’s way, much less stopping him.
Many of the big names like North Carolina-bound Justin Jackson (Tomball, Texas/HYCA), 2014 No. 11 Rashad Vaughn (Minneapolis/Findlay Prep) and 2015 No. 2 Malik Newman (Jackson, Miss./Callaway) played to their reputations, but there are always guys who click it up a notch. Two of the players in the latter group were ESPN 100 power forward Angel Delgado (Troy, N.Y./Redemption Christian) and four-star combo guard Robert Johnson (Richmond, Va./Benedictine Prep).
Here are some nuggets from Day 3 at LeBron. On Wednesday, I’ll have an overall look at what I learned from the camp.
Newman vs. Vaughn was fun
