Bluff City 16u returned to some normalcy this spring, after Alden Applewhite and Johnathan Lawson re-joined their peers from the 17u team.  Early Friday evening their began their Dallas EYBL stop with Team Griffin 16u.  

Team Griffin finished with an 86-59 victory.

How did it go?

Johnathan Lawson is an amazing athlete in need of offensive direction

J Law is such a talented, long, lean, skilled young man.  But he wastes a lot of possessions with very low percentage shots as he did against Team Griffin.  Lawson can get a shot whenever he wants, so it comes down to...'Is it a good shot or just a shot?'  This is the area Lawson must improve the most.  He will almost certainly be a D1 recruit like his three older brothers.  The problems he has are not impossible to remedy and he is blessed with skill and size that most young players can't match. 

Compared to Chandler Lawson

Lawson's game is slightly different than Chandler, in that Johnathan dominates the basketball a lot more.  He will get the outlet pass and start breaks.  He initiates offense in the halfcourt.  In all, Lawson is capable of scoring in bunches.
