Marcus Lee threw a block party last night

Lee is now averaging 16 points, 18 rebounds, seven blocks and four assists through eight games this season.

    What a fabulous average. 18 boards?! 7 blocks!? I’m really excited about this kid. I wonder if he can consistently hit a mid range jumper? If he can, he appears to be a superstar.

    Marcus Lee Stats (Last Year Avg.): PPG – 13.9 Rebounds – 13.9 Blocks – 9.1
    Anthony Davis (High School): PPG – 32 Rebounds – 22 Blocks – 7
    Nerlens Noel (High School): PPG – 12.9 Rebounds – 7.2 Blocks – 3.9

    Marcus is a better shot blocker than both Davis and Noel. Davis is the best player of the bunch by far but don’t under estimate how good Marcus Lee is. He is the least talked about recruit (besides Willis) but he will be a stud. Love his game.

    This is amazing! Please tell me more about this young man! Will he be joining the UK team next or the year after? Where is he from? How tall is he?

    4- Well, he’s a 2016 recruit. Loves long walks on the beach, candle light dinners or what have you. He also enjoys reruns of Jersey Shore and stuff.

    Former swimmer who learned how to block shots through the mastering of the Butterfly Stroke.

    He’s from Minnesota, 7’8

    Hope this helps.

    #4 He will be on next years team. Rivals.com has him ranked #18, ESPN has him #30, and Scout has him #40. He will rise in all those rankings because he is playing much better this year. He is 6’9 PF from California. Here are some highlights (His Junior Year) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsDwEVIXI2s

    #3: I highly doubt Davis average 22 rebounds a game in high school. Maybe he had one or two games with that many, but surely that is a typo. Can anybody else corroborate that stat?

    #8 – one of your better posts.
    #4 – that rock you’re living under can’t be very comfortable.

    When Lee puts up quite a “State” line is that the one between California and Oregon or California and Nevada?

    It is on the UK Athletic website. http://www.ukathletics.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/davis_anthony00.html

    Go to the high school section. It says 32 ppg, 22 Rebounds, 7 blocks. Not a typo. His high school team was absolutely terrible though

    What #13 said. I watched AD’s team play Whitney Young on ESPN one time and it was one of the worst high school teams I’ve ever seen play. They had 40+ turnovers and without AD, they wouldn’t have won a single game or scored over 30 pts in a game.

    I’m telling you, this kid is a Brandan Wright CLONE.

    The bios from 8 & 9 are so similar that you guys had to steal them from another (likely paid)website! It must be a double post by the same person udner a different screen name.

    I saw him play live last week here in Benicia and the kid is a freak. dunked from just outside the side of the key windmills…reverse 360’s, blocking everything. Hard to tell if he has much post moves as he is just so much taller and athletic than everyone else but will be interesting to follow in college.
