"Baby Paul Pierce" Aden Holloway Calls Game at MSAAG & Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp

Every year, a number of prospects use the Middle School All-American game and the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom camp to break out and prove that they are high major prospects while others use it to separate themselves from the pack with the top players from coast to coast in the gym. One of the biggest stock risers this past weekend Aden Holloway has gone from known, to one of the major talents in 2023.

Always a player he came in confident; with a Paul Pierce like skill set Holloway owned the mid-range, produced on the block, finished well in transition, and knocked down the 3-ball showing exceptional efficiency stepping into the shot but also after rocking the defender to sleep of the deck.

Aden flourished in the open style, not the biggest or fastest, but always more than enough to get the job done.  Holloway left no doubt for the scouts in attendance as he put up multiple 20-point games while stuffing the stat sheet in a multitude of areas.

The beauty in what we saw this weekend from Aden’s overall intangibles and skill set could easily translate to a high school. He has good size and has elite ball-handling skills that allow him to make plenty of plays for himself and his teammates. He has a solid jumper and is a tough on-ball defender.

His biggest improvement he will need to make heading forward is just improving his explosion and athleticism; but Baby Pierce just like the NBA veteran has already mastered getting the job done his way with the tools already in his box ~ there is no doubt Aden is one of the best natural scorers in 2023 already and is on the cusp of being in the discussion for one of the best in America.  Bright future for another North Carolina product who proved it on the court not the highlight tape.
