The pro-am league over at the Melo Center -- aka the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center -- on Fayette Street has been attracting some pretty big names for its glorified pickup games this summer.
On Monday night, former Lake Clifton star Josh Selby, a second-round draft pick of the Memphis Grizzlies, went up against Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings in what was likely a lightly-defended affair. Selby reportedly scored 48 points, but Jennings has blown up the blogosphere with an off-the-backboard dunk.
I’m not sure why Jennings was in town -- maybe he had to make a stop at the Under Armour campus because he has an endorsement deal with the Baltimore apparel company -- but he left his mark at the Melo Center.
I wonder which locked-out NBA player will show up next at the Melo Center. I’m hoping it’s Brian Scalabrine.
