Three Soldiers standing out

Eric Bossi @ Peachjam:
"Aaron Gordon, Stanley Johnson and Jabari Bird are playing at a crazy high level right now"

"They got a word to describe Aaron Gordon where I come from.......PRO"
Here's Corey Albertson: No one team has a more impressive "Big Three" than the Oakland Soldiers trio of five-star 2013 forward Aaron Gordon, four-star 2013 forward Stanley Johnson, and four-star 2013 guard Jabari Bird. In a blowout win over Team Final, that trio was phenomenal, led by the athletic and high energy play of Gordon. That was made even more impressive by the fact that the No. 5 player from the Rivals150 had not competed in game action in almost four months due to injury. Gordon was flying above the rim to finish alley-oops, attacking the basket off the dribble, and seemed like he had the ball glued to his hands when pursuing rebounds around the basket. Bird and Johnson both showed impressive athleticism of their own, combined with good ballhandling skills for their size, as they attacked the basket on the break and scored with ease and consistency. That "Big Three" has Soldiers coaches thinking Nike Peach Jam title as teams cannot find ways to match the physicality or effort of those elite prospects"
