The debate continues as to who is the most dominant player in the 2012 class, but one thing is certain in this year of the post player, the summer evaluation period should provide a tremendous proving ground. With the final major spring evaluation event (NBPA Top 100 Camp) just completed, the next time most of the top players will compete against each other it will be in front of college coaches during July's marathon of hoops. These kids are competitive by nature, but the competitive atmosphere always goes up a few notches when college coaches are in attendance and it is always interesting to follow which players thrive or wilt under the pressure. Give me a big with a motor and a nasty streak who loves to be coached over a talented post who looks the part, but doesn't produce when the lights come on.
