John Wall’s high school mixtape rated best of all time by SLAM

Slam Online recently released a list of the top high school basketball mixtapes ever released, and John Wall’s epic tape was rated as the best of all time.

Remember this gem?

Here’s what SLAM had to say about the video:

“The undisputed mixtape GOAT. Wall was a man among boys in high school and his Hoopmixtape made him a legend before he even started at Kentucky.”

At nine million views (and counting), it’s easy to see why they consider Wall’s tape the greatest of all time.

Julius Randle’s ridiculous mixtape came in at No. 13 overall.

“Julius Randle was an absolute specimen as a high schooler. Before he went off to Kentucky, Randle ran through and dunked over everything in his path.”

A third Wildcat also made the list, with former point guard De’Aaron Fox’s tape coming in at No. 25.

“There isn’t much on a basketball court that De’Aaron Fox can’t do, which makes his mixtape all the more impressive. The creative dribble moves are awe-inspiring enough on their own, but when you view them in succession with tomahawks, windmills and pull-up threes, it makes you wonder how Fox’s team ever lost in high school.”

If you want to take a stroll down memory lane, here’s the entire list by Slam Online:

The 30 Best High School Mixtapes of All Time

It won’t be long before an All-Kentucky list of highlight tapes gets ranked.

    I’d love to enjoy this without two ads (and volume) playing simultaneously during the video. #GetOffMyLawn

    Bourbon is right, the ad placement and behavior on my favorite website has all but ruined the experience. I wouldn’t even want to know the number of websites I visit per day, and this is the only one with intrusive and annoying advertising like this. I guess it pays the bills. #cmonmatt

    Agreed: John Wall’s mixtape spoke volumes. Zion Williamson’s speaks similarly. KENTUCKY must get Zion.
