Micheal Carter-Williams was 5’9″ as a high school freshman, leading his team to a league title in Massachusetts.
A few short years later, he’d grown to 6’6″ and became the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year. Now, this Syracuse University alum is in his 9th year, and was an unrestricted free agent who recently re-signed with the Orlando Magic.
In this “family edition” of The Upside, MCW is joined by his 2 younger brothers, Max Zegarowski (currently at Franklin-Pierce) and Creighton guard Marcus Zegarowski.
The Blue Jay’s junior guard was just named to the preseason Naismith Trophy watch list, one of just 50 players in the country to make the list.
Who won those backyard battles? Who gives who coaching advice? And, most importantly, why did Adam feel compelled to re-rank New England’s 2018 recruiting class?
You’ll be surprised at some of the answers.
