While everybody’s sittin’ around talkin’ about who’s the best in high school basketball in the state of Indiana “Where All The Playas Play!” You can’t have that conversation without talkin’ about Eric Hunter Jr.! The baddest guard in the city of Indianapolis! This cat is fiyahhhh!!! DO YOU HEAR ME? He’s 6-foot-3, 165 pounds, reps Charles A Tindley Accelerated School and Team Harris on the AAU circuit. Ole boy led them to Class A state championship this past season averagin’ 25.3 points, 3.5 assists and 7.2 rebounds per game. And like boyz used to say around my way, “He nice bruh!!”

Last I checked, because these things have a tendency of changin’ by the day, he was ranked the 31st-best shootin’ guard in the country and was the fifth best player from the state. Like I said playa, he nice!!!! He’s got handles, can shoot the rock from anywhere on the floor with the sweet left hand jumper and he’s a natural born leader.

Don’t even try to act like because he’s playin’ at a Class A school he can’t bang with cats at the Class 4A level. They better be lucky the dun chose to go to Tindley!!! I’m just sayin’!! Most cats don’t wanna see this type of cat because they don’t make them like him everyday.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The dun’s got offers through the nose but he’s finally narrowed them down to his top 6 about a month ago accordin’ to his tweeter feed!! Here’s what it looks like playa. He’s got Pudue, Butler, Xavier, Minnesota, Nebraska and Ohio State sittin’ on the table.

Now I’ve gotta say this, as bad a boy as he is and he lives just 45 minutes from Bloomington. Why isn’t Indiana on the list? I’m not askin’ for his sake playa. I’m askin’ for all of the IU diehards that still think it’s still the place to be. This kid is all of that and a bag of chips with the frosted penny cookies on the side and dull IU can’t even say hello. In his top six there are four Big Ten schools and IU ain’t one of them primarily because haven’t even offered him. Wheredeydodatat?

You’ve got to be crazy not to offer or be beggin’ this cat to come to Bloomington and he’s sittin’ on your front porch whether he’s interested or not. Why? Because even if you can’t get him you’re showin’ all of the other kids comin’ up in Indiana that you’re at least tryin’ to recruit them especially those OUTSTANDIN’ players in the inner city.

To miss out of this type of talent is asinine!! Eric Hunter Jr. is the freakin’ man around this piece bruh!!! I can’t wait to see him show out this final season. He’s already led Tindley to the mountain top and know he’s got the confidence to repeat. In my Bart Scott voice, “Can’t Wait!!!” Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole Boy: noun – the cat I’m talkin’ about.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
