  • 100 years of basketball: One man's opinion of best-ever local players

    The only thing certain about picking the best ever in Anderson County basketball history is that we did not make room for enough players on the teams. Twenty boys players over 100 years? Ten girls since 1975?
    It is practically impossible to do so, especially the way basketball has changed over time.

    Just picking the best players is difficult in itself. I think it would be safe to say that no one alive has seen all of the greats in Anderson County history.
