It's Good to be a Corey
Day 2 at the Reebok ABCD Camp brought no announcement from O.J. Mayo about his college intentions, so the throng of reporters was free to give some ink to other players. In the fourth of our five-part series on summer sneaker camps, the Herald News profiled the three Coreys - Chandler, Fisher and Stokes. Fisher said he might transfer from St. Patrick's this season, but a Villanova assistant told me he thought Fisher would remain at St. Pat's. Dan Rosen of The Record featured Greg Echenique, a native of Venezuela who plays for St. Benedict's and says he wants to live in Ridgewood if he ever makes the NBA. The Washington Post featured Renardo Sidney, a 6-9 man-child from Mississippi who already has shadowy figures trying to get a piece of him. The New York Post looked at Sylven Landesberg and The Asbury Park Press featured Miles Beatty of St. Anthony. The Star-Ledger profiled rapper/hoopster Percy Romeo Miller, aka "Lil' Romeo."
