Best Warriors Basketball 

McClymonds High School

The best ball in this part of the Golden State is played at McClymonds High School. These Warriors nearly ran the table for the second year running, and settled for merely being the best team in Northern California. And this isn't one of those honors that comes with caveats about "schools this size" or "in this demographic." We're talking Division 1. The Black and Orange, led by Coach Brandon Brooks, take on all comers, public and private. The West Oakland school has always had a disproportionately strong impact on the sports scene, but roll over Bill Russell, Curt Flood, and Vada Pinson. History is happening now. Look for the names of Will Cherry and Damon Powell in your college box scores soon. And will the loss of stars knock down the Warriors? Unlikely. At McClymonds, they don't rebuild, they reload.
