Thanks to GHSD for selecting the AJC’s 2010 All-State basketball team. Now it’s YOUR turn to VOICE your OPINION. Which picks do you like? Which ones would you change?
Note: We have one request. Please state your case in a reasonable and professional manner. Feel free to offer your evaluation of ANY player in the state, as long as you talk about the player’s performance on the basketball court. No personal attacks away from the court. This discussion is supposed to be productive and fun, therefore let’s keep it that way. Anyone making inappropriate comments will be banned.
