ESPN did a feature today asking who would you rather have on your team -- Kobe Bryant or LeBron James.
That got me thinking, of Broward's top two players, which would you rather have -- American Heritage junior Kenny Boynton Jr. or Pine Crest sophomore Brandon Knight?
Boynton is a dynamic scorer, a player that scored 61 points in a single game this season. He was surrounded by talented players at Heritage this season -- Florida-bound senior forward Eloy Vargas and speedy junior point guard Ray Taylor. Boynton led Blanche Ely to a Class 6A state championship last season before he came to Heritage.
Knight is a complete player, a scoring point guard that nearly averaged a triple double for the season. After he missed the first half of the season with a cyst in his back, Knight returned and led the Panthers to 18 straight wins. He is joined by junior forward Ed Waite (the Class 3A Finals MVP) and senior center Jeff Pelage. The trio led the Panthers to the Class 3A title, with Knight scoring 38 points in each the district final and regional semifinal victories over American Heritage. (Boynton finished with 33 and 29 in those games, respectively.)
