“Showtime” Carter goes #1 Overall in the 2021 PBA Draft to Texas Takeover!
Texas Takeover 1 Davene Carter 6’7 SF/PF/C Dallas, TX. Showtime as he’s known is a World Class Athlete having spent time as a professional playing for the Harlem Globetrotters. Showtime has been on the ESPN produced Dunk King show and has no issues getting his chin on top of the rim. Some of what makes him an interesting prospect is he was mostly a pick and roll finisher at NCAA2 Tarleton State but he has developed his game to include Small Forward skills on the perimeter with 3 point range, ball handling ability, and the undeniably valuable asset of being able to defend all 5 positions on the floor. He’s a quick twitch athlete that may have been a late bloomer. Showtime has played professionally in Spain.
Rochester Razorsharks 2 Mike Liabo 6’6 SG Florida. Mike has played all over the World including a stop over in Spain. He’s small forward size but plays the game like a point guard. He rebounds like a forward but handles the ball and passes like a lead the league in assists type player. Unique talent, the lefty has 3 point range and plays with a vet savvy that is sure to show results in the win column for the Razorsharks. His team at the Rochester PBA Draft Combine featured several top picks in this draft including his future teammate at 5th overall.
Pennsylvania Peacemakers 3 Josh Blamon 6’3 PG/SG Cinnamonson, NJ. Josh has experience playing in the NBA G-League and has a very strong frame for a guard. He’s a mismatch nightmare for opponents because he has the handle and explosiveness out on the perimeter where you need your fleet of foot smaller framed guard to cut him off but he’s powerfully built and can over power at the point of attack. Bigger wings struggle to stay in front of him. His first step is electric. Laterally elite and puts time in the weight room. Josh wasn’t able to attend the draft combine but registered earlier in the process and good thing he did. Teams that scouted his video whispered about possible NBA prospects. Elite guard goes to the Peacemakers.
Buffalo Blaze 4 Maurice Benson 6’1 PG Michigan. Mo is an experience vet at the lead guard spot. He played his college ball at Indiana Tech and has experience playing for Lake Michigan in the minor league PBL. Many thought Mo was the top guard at the Dallas PBA Draft Combine. He defends, he’s tough, he talks, he’s a vet, he can make shots, he runs a team. Very solid pick up for the Buffalo Blaze.
Rochester Razorsharks 5 Josue Celestin 6’7 PF/C Florida. Josue showed off his gravity defying moves at the Rochester PBA Draft Combine and the Razorsharks waste no time taking both him and his teammate at the combine Mike Liabo as both go in the top 5. Josue jumps way over the rim, runs the floor like a guard, and defends every position on the floor.
HoopGoon 6 Terry Maston 6’8 PF/C DeSoto, TX. Terry was All-Big12 6th Man of the Year at Baylor University. The NBA factory at Baylor has produced a lot of big time athletes and Terry is no exception. He was a 20/10 powerhouse in NBL Canada and starred in the NBA G-League. He’s a proven pro and a double-double machine.
HoopGoon 7 Khayree fareed 6’1 Guard Dallas, TX. Khayree showed his pro moves at the Dallas PBA Draft Combine and really helped his stock. He has fluid movements on the perimeter and has put a lot of work into his game. He handles enough to play the lead guard spot but looks like a go to scorer at the 2 spot as he’s crafty getting into his shot and puts the ball in the basket from 3 and mid-range.
Maywood Warriors 8 Macari Brooks 6’3 Guard Chicago Heights, IL. Macari has pro playing experience in El Salvador scoring 23ppg and in Nicaragua where he averaged 18ppg. Macari was originally recruited and signed to DePaul University and spent his freshman season there but transferred to Pikeville where he was All-MSC 1st team twice in 2015 and 2016 and made it to the Elite 8. This experienced guard will bring a lot of versatility to the Warriors backcourt this season.
Rochester Razorsharks 9 Colin Jones 6’7 PF Holt, MI. Colin really wowed everyone at the Dallas PBA Draft Combine. Big body 6’7 that is still physically developing at 280lbs but has guard skills as he can put the ball on the floor and creates mismatches all over the court. Big men can’t stay in front of him and guards that may have the lateral quickness on the perimeter to cut off his path get overwhelmed when he takes them inside. Still developing but this big guy has a big future in Rochester.
Akron Aviators 10 Jashawn Fontanez 5’10 PG Pittsburgh, PA. Jashawn was an All-American at Penn State Greater Allegheny (NCAA2) averaging 19ppg. Jashawn was a stand out at the Rochester PBA Draft Combine.
F.I.R.M. 11 Damien Fulp 6’3 PG Alberta, Canada. Damien has pro experience playing in Brazil and in the NBL in Canada. Prior to his pro career, Damien starred at the University of Anchorage (NCAA D1). He’s a do everything guard that really showed out at the Dallas PBA Draft Combine. He defends, plays hard, and has decent size for either guard spot.
Metroplex Lightning 12 Vernon Lewis 6’7 PF Dallas, TX. Vernon has played in the NBA G-League, Czech Republic, Mexico. He was originally drafted by the Canton Charge in 2008. The 12 year veteran power forward is a physical presence and loves to defend and rebound. His willingness to throw his body around and pro experience will help the Lightning this season.
Maywood Warriors 13 Latorreo Tolbert 6’11 Center Chicago, IL. Latorreo played for the Chicago Legends in the Maximum Basketball League this past season. Maywood gets a rim protector at 13.
