Well now this is pretty cool: Quinn Cook, along with homies Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, are releasing a documentary on Showtime about basketball in Prince George County, Maryland. It’s called Basketball County: In The Water
The documentary goes live on Showtime on Friday so this evening you should be able to watch it. Here’s a trailer.
This is interesting enough that we might get Showtime’s free trial just to watch it. Here are just some of the players from Prince George County that went on to become first-round draft picks. All of these guys played in the ACC. Only Bias never played in the NBA, since he died on draft night of a cocaine overdose.
