I will admit I totally see your point but let us go do down the line of events for both players during the open season:

Diante Garrett- Stay in the Game
1) Swish and Dish
2) King James Shooting Star Classic
3) Speice Run 'n Slam
4)Kentucky Hoopfest
5) Adidas Super 64 (with DTA but Stay in the Game went to that event as well)

Korie Lucious-DTA
1) Dean's Food Classic
2) Real Deal on the Hill
3) Kingwood Classic
4) Speice Run n' Slam
5) Kentucky Hoopfest
6) Adidas Super 64

Ok, I apologize Korie played in one more event besides the Pangos and Adidas Camp.

And honestly I think that this discussion is kind of null and void because even though DG isn't ranked anywhere but in the top 100 midwest rankings he is still receiving looks from Iowa St., Tenn., Creighton, Wash. St. and so on. It is wide open for his services.

I don't think that Diante has any regrets about playing with Stay in the Game. He had numerous chances to play with DTA throughout the year. Like I stated before throughout the year enough people saw him to offer him or show strong interest. How many national radars was Dwayne Wade out of high school and he played with the Illinois Warriors. I am not saying that he is going to be the next Wade. Keep in mind I am not discrediting anything that Korie did but I dont think that Diante hurt himself by playing with Stay in the Game. They will both have outstanding years and move on to play major college ball barring any mishaps.


I just want to point out that I am not ripping on Diante at all for playing with Stay In The Game, it's his choice and if that's what makes him happy the more power to him. I am also not saying that he "hurt" himself by playing with Stay In The Game, just that he could have "helped" himself alot more by playing with an elite team. I hate to speculate as to how many other high-majors would be involved with his recruitment if he had played with DTA the entire summer and if he had attended one of the sneaker camps, so I am just going to leave it at he is a teriffic talent and whatever college lands him is getting a very disciplined and unselfish point guard.

Both great players, I like Diante Garret - I think his growth potential is greater. His game will get stronger and he will be more polished game after game. Will be fun to watch.

You know what I agree with you. You look at a team like DTA which had so much talent in the backcourt (Gordan, Lucious, Perine, Woods, Buycks) they were loaded. I think Diante was able to be the man on that squad, dominate the ball and also play in some pretty good tourneys. There are a lot of ifs but I think that we both agree that Diante and Korie will be just fine in High School and on the next level.

The Pangos All-American and Adidas Superstar are both incredibly high-caliber camps that Korie was invited to. And although DTA only technically played in one more tournament than Stay in the Game, the competition DTA faced was far more advanced than the competition that Stay in the Game faced. I don't think Diante Garret (when he played with Stay in the Game) ever had to face DC Assault, with top-25 guards Austin Freeman and Nolan Smith, and not even to mention the #1 ranked player in the nation, Michael Beasley. Obviously, Diante showed that he can compete with the best when he displayed that ability at the Reebok Big Time. I am just saying that he would be more well-known nationally if he would have been playing with an elite AAU team all along.
