2020 has been a tough and challenging year to say the least. I thought it’d be refreshing to look back on some of my best basketball memories from the calendar year.

Here is Part 1 of our look back:

Random Memories Of 2020 – Part 1

Let’s look back again and see some more of my best memories of 2020.

Let’s Get Ready IV

Coach Dell Johnson’s event has become a must attend showcase. Jaylen HodgesJaylenHodges6'3" | PGBridgeport | 2021StateMI and Keyon MenifieldKeyonMenifield6'2" | PGFlint Beecher | 2021StateMI put on a show offensively. Meanwhile players like Malachi BlackMalachiBlack6'7" | PFDetroit University Prep Art & Design | 2021StateMINick EllisNickEllis6'7" | PFGrand Ledge | 2022StateMI, Teddy WilliamsTeddyWilliams6'5" | PFGrand Ledge | 2023StateMI, and Brady TitusBradyTitus5'10" | PGTri-Unity Christian | 2022StateMI showed big time improvements in their games.

I’ve seen Malik play and it’s always been obvious that he’s a unique and special talent. But his continued growth as a player is miraculous. He’s always been a tremendous ball handler and creator offensively. Now he has his jump shot grooving and continues to get stronger. That’s why, in my opinion, he’s rose to a top 50 2023 prospect in the country.
