Nike EYBL All-Atlanta: Second Team

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/03/19, 5:30PM EDT


Team: Texas Titans

EYBL Atlanta Statistics:  17.0 PPG, 71.4 FG%, 8.8 RPG, 0.8 TOPG

Year: Junior (2020)

Height: 6-foot-9

Greg Brown III entered the EYBL with a ton of hype, and he lived up to every bit of it in his first four games on the circuit. Brown averaged 17.0 points on a ridiculous 71.4 percent shooting. The 6-foot-9 swingman added 8.8 rebounds per game while only turning the ball over less than once per game on average.

"Greg is a ferocious competitor on both ends of the court with freakish athleticism," said Texas Titans head coach Greg Gober. "He always plays to win and to be the best."

While Brown was good, Gober expects him to be better moving forward.

"Fouls and dings slowed him down early, " said Gober. "But watch out when he has the motor running full throttle."

Scooby Johnson

Team: The Family Detroit (MI)

EYBL Atlanta Statistics: 18.5 PPG, 52.9 FG%, 4.0 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.2 SPG, 1.5 TOPG (4-0)

Year: Junior (2020)

Height: 6-foot-6

The Family Detroit’s Scooby Johnson entered his second EYBL season in Atlanta, and the 6-foot-6 swingman used the four-game set to display the best version of himself as a basketball player. Johnson helped lead a veteran-laden ‘Family’ group to a 4-0 record, helping the Detroit EYBL affiliate win a few razor-close matchups while averaging 18.5 points on 52.9 percent shooting, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.2 steals. Johnson leads with his play and does a bit of everything for head coach Courtney Williams His motor and nose for the ball pair well with his physical style-of-play, and his passion and effort perfectly embody The Family’s culture as a basketball organization. Johnson is one of three or four players from ‘The Family’ that could realistically land on an All-EYBL team, and don’t be surprised if he has a repeat performance in Indy.

Nimari Burnett

Team: Team WhyNot (CA)

EYBL Atlanta Statistics:  23.8 PPG, 49.2 FG%, 20-24 FT, 3.8 RPG, 3.2 APG, 1.8 SPG, 3.0 TOPG

Year: Junior (2020)

Height: 6-foot-3

Nimari Burnett used the opening session to continue his all-out attack on the EYBL competition. Since joining the EYBL halfway through last season, Burnett has excelled as a go-to-guy for Team WhyNot, and he was firing on all cylinders in Atlanta. WhyNot ended the session with a 3-1 record against some stiff competition, and Burnett was a big reason why. The 6-foot-3 junior averaged 24 points per game while shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor, and was consistently a lockdown defender. Look for Burnett to continue his success alongside fellow top 40 guards Addison Patterson and Devin Askew.

Sharife Cooper

Team: AOT Running Rebels

EYBL Atlanta Statistics:  31.2 PPG, 51.2 FG%, 36-45 FT, 5.5 RPG, 7.0 APG, 2.0 SPG, 3.8 TOPG

Year: Junior (2020)

Height: 6-foot-2

Story: Sharife Cooper was named 2019 Nike EYBL Atlanta Offensive Player of the Session. 

Jabri Abdur-Rahim

Team: Playaz Club (NJ)

EYBL Atlanta Statistics:  28.0 PPG, 46.8 FG%, 15-34 3PT, 6.8 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.0 SPG, 1.5 TOPG

Year: Junior (2020)

Height: 6-foot-7

Story: Jabri Abdur-Rahim earned Nike EYBL Atlanta's Best Performance.
