    Yeah, just can't get enough of these highlight reels. Hard to believe he is only 6'-2". Except for the height, this guy has it all. Too bad he is going to a place with a black coach.

    "Best White Dunker Ever?" How utterly racist........having said that he has great vertical at 6'2". Seems he has some cockiness to him as well that he will need if going to a school that promotes having a negro coach and darker lineup.

    In the late 70's in my High school we used to have dunk contests, more than a few of the kids could dunk the ball easily..all were Caucasian. I am 5'9" and I could just hit it off the rim but never dunk it.

    Another day and another win in a national high school dunk contest with the best kids in the U.S. One thing to notice too is as usual he is the shortest guy in the dunk contest yet is the best dunker and the most explosive. He even did a 360 at only 6'1. The kids is amazing. I will be watching some Georgetown Basketball in the fall. Way to go Mac! :)

    Then, Jordan McCabe wins the 3-point contest...hmmm. Starts at the 10:00 mark.

    Funny you mention McCabe. I watching a video of last year's Kaukauna vs Kimberly(Football Powerhouse) HS Basketball game and the comments were full of hatred with "how many White boys were on the court." "And this guy is good, but he's playing all white guys." Etc etc. Typical brainwashed speech. Not even DWFs most were from Black Posters.

    Never mind that the two teams are in rural northeast Wisconsin.. Diversity in a nutshell. Won't rest until every corner of country is blessed with diversity er no white people left.

    Apologies if I sidetracked this thread!

    You guys are going to love this video. It got me pumped up. Good luck to Georgetown & McClung in the NIT. They were so close to making the main tournament but there is always next
    year inless Matt McClung goes in the draft after his freshman year. I think he should stay 1 more year in college and leave after his sopmore season. Love this kid!

    I can't wait to see what this super sophmore does at Georgetown this year. Season is just a blink of an eye away. McClung will declare for the nba draft after his sophmore year with out a doubt!

    I had a feeling that Mac McClung might declare for the NBA Draft and I was right. He is testing the waters. Good luck to Mac and I hope he goes to a team that will play
    him quality minutes and not just ignore his talent like the NBA did with Jimmer Fredette and Grayson Allen. Someone needs to draft this kid and actually play him and
    give him a chance to eventually become a starter. :)

    Not a bad idea to see where his draft stock is. I'd like to see him back for another year at Georgetown though. I've heard rumors that Duke transfer Alex O'Connell is looking at Hoyas as possible landing spot. Be cool to see him and McClung as starters.

    This isnt going to age well, please stop I know you have good intentions and all. This one trick pony whigger will be doing streetball commentary in less than 5 years and I dont want to defend him.

    I respect your opinion but disagree. Not saying he is gonna be an all star but you never know. I do think he can become a very good player if he continues to work hard on his shooting & passing along with defense. How hungry is the kid? Time will tell
    but we will have to see how it plays out? You may be right but you may be wrong. If you are wrong I hope you admit it in a few years. I like guys that disprove stereotypes.

    I really don't understand some of the negative sentiment on this site with regard to McLung. He is an accomplished kid from a very small town in Virginia who chose a good academic institution where the style of play fits him. Regardless of how far he progresses, he is a caste buster in both his ability to demonstrate his athletic talent and aggressive, won't back down style of play . Based on some of the comments here it looks like Pete Maravich would have been considered a wigger in his era..

    Here is an interview ... I'll let you make your own judgements.

    That is one of the most spectacular dunks I have ever seen. Holy scoop shot.

    I believe this thoughtful post represents the overwhelming majority here at CF. I am a huge fan of McClung and was very disappointed when he got injured. He was establishing himself as a sophomore as the best player on Georgetown and with some progression just might sneak into an NBA roster down the road. Yes he has areas he needs to improve on.

    I can't even begin to describe how many white speedsters and or leapers I have rooted hard for over the years who came up short. And not every favorite of mine who has made the big time are certifiable stars. Heck Yankees speedster Brett Gardner is one of my all time favorite players.

    Thanks guys. He looks like he could sing in the morman choir in Salt Lake City, Utah. No pierced ears, very few tattoos if any, paper boy hair cut, and he talks like an intelligent person who was raised in a good family. Yet some here have labled him a wigger just
    because he dunks and shows some excitement. The kid is 20 years of age. You want him to act like he is 50? He is as polite as they come. A humble, hard working and nice kid. On the court he is an assasin. Love to watch him play. I never
    have seen any wigger in him. Regardless if he did do some dumb stuff, so did all of us as teenagers and college kids. Support this kid. We need athletic guys dunking on people like McClung and Mannion! A new breed of athletic white basketball
    players that always seem to get screwed. Look what happened to Grayson Allen and so many others. They don't want white kids doing what guys like Kyrie Irving do. It disproves the myth that whites can't jump. Yes it's a myth! Tired of the media brainwashing the scouts, coaching staffs and fans.

    Mac McClung will make his decision tommorow on what school he is transfering to. It's down to 7 schools but I would like to see him either go to BYU or USC. It would be easier for me to watch him on tv more. If he chose BYU I think
    it would be a little like Jimmer Mania again when Fredette was there. He is not as explosive a scorer as Fredette or as good of a shooter but he still has time to improve. He will be going into his junior year of college. Being where he grew up,
    BYU would be a good fit and he would be looked upon as a leader to help the Cougars make the NCAA Tournament.

    The other 4 options are crap and McClung would be a fool to pick any of them.

    He is going to Texas Tech, this attention whore will be disappointed by the fact that no school in Texas cares about basketball. Its impressive how little they care. They obviously had success but its probably not a sustainable run. He will be happy to shine as the only white who is not a walk on for 2021.
