Knee-Jerk Reactions After McDonald’s All-American Game


The nation’s top college basketball prospects gathered this year, as they do every year, for the McDonald’s All-American Game in the House That Jordan Built, the United Center in Chicago.

With nine of the game’s players undecided on their college destination, there were many questions to answer Wednesday night. Like, would these undecided players go to Kentucky, or Kentucky? Would they go to Kentucky now, or would they go to Kentucky later? Do you think that when they go to Kentucky, they’ll be on the blue rotation or the white rotation? These are the questions that haunt us this day.

Ah, I kid. There was a lot of great talent and even greater potential on display in Chicago, from top overall prospect Ben Simmons through the last player off the bench. And those undecideds provided plenty of intrigue, regardless of where they matriculate.

Here are some knee-jerk reactions in the initial wake of the biggest game on the college basketball recruiting calendar.
