Spire Academy is a team that everyone likes to tune into because of Lamelo Ball, Rocket Watts, and Isaiah Jackson, but there is another player that should be considered on their level to. Myron Gardner has shown this season that he is a true pro prospect, and that he can sure dunk the basketball. Gardner is averaging 17.8 PPG, 9.6 RPG, and 2.5 APG on the season for Spire, and he has had some show stopping performances as well.
Not only should Myron Gardner be respected like the rest of his star teammates, he should be getting better offers like them. Gardner has received an offer from Missouri, which is his only big time D-1 offer, that is unacceptable. If I am a Division 1 basketball program, I would be searching for a player exactly like Gardner, a guy who can drive to the basket and can’t be stopped, and who clearly has a chip on his shoulder.
When will people start respecting Myron Gardner?
