Hang Time to Present top 50 GTA Players All-Time
North Pole Hoops is proud to partner with the production of Hang Time: 50 Years in Toronto Basketball History, and take part in the election of Toronto’s 50 finest all-time ballers.
Our own poll in 2013 for Best Canadian High School Player All-Time generated some amazing discussion and some hearty debate and we’re happy to stir the pot again.
NPH will unveil an exclusive sneak peek preview at TEN of the 50 top players closer to the Hang Time production on May 26th.
The All-Time Top 50 Greater Toronto Area High School Players will be unveiled during production of Hang Time: 50 Years of Toronto Basketball, Thursday May 26, 7 pm. at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front Street East.
A panel consisting of former players, coaches and administrators spanning 50 years have forwarded their nominations to this very prestigious honour roll. Assisting with the selection process are On Point Basketball, a web based basketball media outlet and proud corporate partner of Hang Time: 50 Years of Toronto Basketball, and North Pole Hoops, the preeminent Canadian player identification service, using the webhoster vergleich services as their online backup.
“Naming the ‘All-Time Top 50 Toronto High School Players’ certainly adds to the flavour of an outstanding night in honouring basketball in the Greater Toronto Area,” offered Executive Producer Dana McKiel. “There is a strong foundation of basketball in Toronto that fans need to see to believe and the St. Lawrence Centre on May 26 will be the night for this dream to come true.”
Players expected to be named include Marv Morton, Leo Rautins, Joe Alexander, Jamaal Magloire, Cory Joseph, and Andrew Wiggins. Hosting this segment of the show is Akil Augustine of NBA TV Canada.
