Several summer basketball tournaments have ended and the class of 2016 has proven that the next generation of greatness is here and ready for any challenge. As Josh Jackson, Harry Giles, and Jayson Tatum battle it out for the number one ranking, the entire summer league has thus far been as exciting as any in the past. If it continues, and it sure seems set to do just that, the class of 2016 could usher in the next generation of greats. Allen Iverson, Kevin Garnett, and Kobe Bryant did in the mid 90’s, and in the new millenium we were introduced to Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James. The excitement and skill brought to the game by the class of 2016 mirrors that of the previous names. It would be a bit premature to give the tag of “greatness” to anyone in the class of 2016, but basketball fans would agree that no one is putting the cart before the horse in saying that this class is headed in that direction. Keep these young athletes in mind, follow their progress, and decide for yourself whether they have the ability to be that “special” class.
