The Sun's Arizin: Omari Spellman is getting great reviews

Can we have Omari now?

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! Omari Spellman suffered a nasty ankle injury at the Peach Jam this summer, which sidelined him for a couple months. He then showed up at USA Basketball camp overweight, which shouldn't be much of a surprise given how long he was away from the game.

In just a few short weeks, however, he's apparently back to his dominating self. Spellman won MVP honors at a NYC vs. NJ All-Star game over the weekend, and got rave reviews from just about everybody who was in attendance. Can he suit up now?

And now, the "news."
