CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Class of 2014 Marion (Ind.) guard James Blackmon Jr. had a big week at the 2013 National Basketball Players Association Top 100 Camp as he was named to the camp’s 10-man All-Star team.

Inside the Hall has compiled close to three minutes of footage of the future Indiana guard from NBPA Top 100 camp games played at Paul Jones Arena on the campus of the University of Virginia in the embedded media player below:

    All that and he actually missed a couple that just as easily had went down. Effortless game.

  • I hope he can speed up his release on his 3s a little.

    espn has moved him up to number 25 on the recruiting class. He is finally getting some props that we all ready new. I think he will continue to climb up the rankings as he should. he is going to be a great guard for IU!

    shooting while slashing seemed to be something to work on.

  • BraxstonandKatie Hughes

    he needs to bulk up!

  • kewaynes

    A few questionable shots. But hey, he can make them. Wish he was already graduated. He almost makes me entirely forget about…ummm…that one kid who couldn’t make up his mind

    JBJ is an offensive machine.

  • Jmac

    Too bad he’s not 6’3 or 6’4.

    Man James follow-through on his shot is a thing of beauty… WATFORD-esque!

  • N71

    Reminds me of a young Ray Allen.

    Thought everyone would enjoy these bookend commentes in the analysis section of Victor’s player card on ESPN.com…

    Dec 17 Update: Zeller gets the lion’s share of attention from NBA scouts, but on their frequent trips to watch Zeller in action, a number of scouts have walked away with another name highlighted on their iPads: Oladipo. Last season, he was considered a high-energy athlete with no real offensive game. This season, with an improved jumper and even better defensive numbers, some scouts believe they’ve found the next Tony Allen. Oladipo’s energy is infectious, and he can lock down just about everyone, from point guards to power forwards. And on offense, he shows an above-average ability to finish around the rim. Plus, even his 3-point shot is starting to fall a little bit. No one is calling Oladipo a lottery pick right now, but it’s looking more and more likely that he will hear his name called somewhere in the first round in June.

    June 10 Update: Oladipo had his first workout last week — with the Suns. Oladipo’s main competition at the workout was Shabazz Muhammad (Ben McLemore also was in Phoenix that day, but declined to work out with Oladipo or Muhammad). By all accounts the Suns (like just about every other team) were impressed. Sources say that Oladipo has moved into the Cavs’ conversation for the No. 1 pick, and also is under heavy consideration from the Magic at No. 2. Sounds like it would be a surprise if he goes past the Suns at No. 5.

    I was just thinking thats the first thing he’s gonna work on, but I wouldn’t call it a slow release by any means

  • HoosierTrav

    Me too.


    Top ten at at a camp like this tells you that it is a more accurate barometer of what kind of talent a player is versus most, if not all, of the so called recruiting services. This kid is gonna contribute on day one and the scary part, for other teams anyway, is that he is only going to get better before he gets to IU and after arriving I have little, if any doubt, he will only continue to get even better from that point on as well.
