It seems a little much to put Issiah Grayson's name in the same sentence as Michael Jordan's. He may be a great athlete, but we all know he won't see the floor as much as he would like in the CAA playing for the Rams. He should probably look at going to a D-2 school for some playing time. Best of luck to Issiah and his future dribbles.

Mr. KG
In Response to Michael Jordan’s name being mention, the writer I’m sure was merely elaborating that Michael Jordan the greatest basketball player in the world whom I and other respect deeply, when he was younger playing at high school level his couch bench him did not believe in his talents. The writer I'm sure was not comparing the two which would be Ridiculous, if you read it like others did you would have understood that. “ Issiah is a Great talented athlete he just has not been able to show what he can do on the court because of political reasons. Issiah has played with the very best of the best, his team mate Avery Bradley from Finlay Prep just got drafted to the NBA. Grayson is a winner, he knows what it takes to win games even has a championship ring, trust when I tell you the kid will get that chance to show unbelievers real soon what he really can do, everyone loves a underdog don’t you Agree” Mr. KG.”
