Showboat basketball

Boston Celtic guard Nate Archibald on today's city-bred high school basketball players: "A lot of these kids learn to do the difficult before they learn to do the easy. They'll try to do something beyond the norm, something extraordinary, just to show how good they are. I always say that it's best to learn the basics first, then to go to what we call 'the freak bag," but some kids will want to put that into their game first. It's what is noticed."
