This 2013 Jordan Brand Classic will feature one of the most talented rosters in 12 years of the events existence. Two Canadians have been selected; the #1 player in the world, Andrew Wiggins, along with Syracuse commit and NPH #2-ranked prospect Tyler Ennis.
The top 5 players in the ESPN rankings headlined by Wiggins also include Jabari Parker, Andrew Harrison, Julius Randle and Aaron Harrison. For the Canadians that aren’t familiar with this talent…it’s BIG TIME.
Wiggins and Ennis were both part of last summer’s Junior National team and will connect once again playing on the JBC East Team together. In other words, there will be no shortage of alley-oop jams.
Past Canadians that have participated in the main event include Tristan Thompson, Cory Joseph, Anthony Bennett, Myck Kabongo, Khem Birch and Kyle Wiltjer.
The Jordan Brand Classic will take place on April 13 in Brooklyn at Barclay Centre, home of the Brooklyn Nets.
