DraftExpress took in four days of competition this past week at the U-16 European Championship. We?re talking about a terrific chance to make first contact today with kids who might eventually become the stars of tomorrow. Like last summer, we?ve decided to apply a restrictive criteria when talking about these young guys, although spreading a little bit around the amount of players featured. Seven teenagers are highlighted here, but it?s important to stress that every single of them is currently just about potential, and nothing else. Hard work, humbleness, good attitude, that?s the way to keep improving and fulfilling that potential.
Leading the pack is the very hyped Ricky Rubio
, who is in the pole position for the MVP award after what?s so far been an amazing performance in this tournament. Also deserves special mention is the amount of quality big guys seen this year, contrary to what happened last summer. And we don?t want to forget the improved organization from the past edition, likely due to the more active presence of FIBA Europe.
