Happy Wednesday Nova Nation! It’s a light news day here at the Arizin, so it’s time for another summer hypothetical. A number of former Villanova players have now started their own camps, primarily for kids, to work on teaching the game and giving them a chance to hang out with their local heroes turned NBA stars. But what if your favorite Villanova players offered a Villanova Fantasy Camp, where you got to play against and hang out with some of your favorite players. Who would you want as your camp counselors?
I may have a little recency bias here, but that’s probably due to getting to talk to more of these guys since I started working here at VUHoops. So my dream lineup would be Phil Booth, Darryl Reynolds, and Mikal Bridges. Not only could these guys teach me some things (heck, my 3 year old is almost better than me already), but more importantly they’re all amazing guys to chat and hang out with.
Who would be your picks? Be sure to put them in the comments and share any experiences you’ve had with these players and their camps.
