Twenty Years of All-Stars

By Jon "Duck" Gray

              The All-City Classic will be played on May 30th, 2014. This year’s Classic will be the twentieth for the event which has provided tons of exposure for Philadelphia area basketball players. The All-City Classic, which is now the Wayne Ellington All-City Basketball Classic after the title sponsorship of the former participant and current member of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, has become a yearly treat for basketball viewers.
            The first All-City Classic was played at St. Joseph’s University Alumni Fieldhouse and included participants like Kobe Bryant (NBA), Donnie Carr (La Salle University) and Lynn Greer (NBA. ) Other Philadelphia area All-City Classic alumni include: Rasual Butler (NBA), Eddie Griffin (NBA), Dajuan Wagner (NBA), Hakim Warrick (NBA), Mustafa Shakur (NBA), Matt Walsh (NBA), Rob Kurz (NBA), Maureece Rice (George Washington University), Michael Green (Butler University), Dionte Christmas (NBA),  Charron Fisher (Niagara University), Kyle Lowry (NBA), Sean Singletary (NBA), Jason Thompson (NBA), Gerald Henderson (NBA), Scoop Jardine (Syracuse University), Rick Jackson (Syracuse University), Ramone Moore (Temple University), Markieff Morris (NBA), Marcus Morris (NBA), Maalik Wayns (NBA), Tony Chennault (Villanova University), Tyreek Duren (LaSalle University), Tyrone Garland (LaSalle University), Dion Waiters (NBA) and Amile Jefferson (Duke University.) It is obvious by viewing the prior listing of players that many All-City Classic participants have gone on to successful basketball careers at the NCAA Division I level and that some have gone on to success in the National Basketball Association.  Players such as Ellington and Warrick exploded on the local basketball scene after performances in the All-City Classic, when they competed superbly against the region’s top players.
            The All-City Classic, which is run by Charles “Shoob” Monroe, draws some of the nation’s top basketball scouts every year. Tom Konchalski (McDonald’s All- American selection committee), Van Johnson (McDonald’s All-American Selection committee), Allen Rubin (Hoopscoop Online) and Norm Eavenson (Bob Gibbons All-Star Report) are just some of the observers who make this event a yearly stop on their hoops-viewing schedule.  The quality media attention sets the All-City Classic apart from other one-day events in the Delaware Valley. “The All-City Classic is the top one-day event on the East Coast,” says Checkball Magazine founder and CEO Littel Vaughn.
            So for twenty years the Philadelphia area has been treated to seeing the best high school talent in the area perform in front of the some of the nation’s top scouts. The Philadelphia area has seen unknown players become stars that went on to careers in the National Basketball Association.  The Philadelphia area has been delighted with crowd-pleasing performances. So the question is what can people expect for the next twenty years? The answer is more of the same great play!
