Great series
18 June 2002 | by (Brooklyn) – See all my reviews

Preps:Chicago Hoops was probably one of my favorite sports related documentary/series when it aired in 2001. Preps basically primarily chronicled the 2001 HS year for 3 Chi-Town area HS basketball stars. Former Thornwood HS center and current NBA Chicago Bulls player Eddy Curry, former Downers Grove North's guard(also a football and baseball player) and current University of Illinois football player Kyle Kleckner and point guard Sean Dockery then of Percy L. Julian HS(he is going to Duke for college). The first two were going through their senior year while Dockery was one of the top juniors in the nation. The series often branched out to cover the close friends and rivals of the main 3 subjects such as:Najeeb Echols(Eddy Curry's close friend now plays ball at Missouri), Jason Straight(another close friend of Curry, currently playing ball at Wyoming)Luther Head(University of Illinois and Chicago Public League rival of Sean Dockery) and my personal favorite from the show, Will "The Thrill" Bynum currently playing for the Arizona Wildcats.

Preps was a nice series for basketball fans of all levels. It gave people like myself a chance to see some of the top players in another state live HS life and compete. The series actually encouraged me to follow up on the players(including the lesser known players from the series) from that series and pay more attention to HS players in general.

All in all a great series. Hopefully, there will be another series that covers NYC HS public basketball(PSAL). If your Fox Sports affiliate ever shows reruns (probably won't happen its been about a year) from the series its worth watching and taping.
