Youtubesman Report: Segue to a Different Era

New title, same job.

I'll be honest, there's no real theme for these videos, I was trying to think of someway to tie it all together but failed miserably. Instead, I'm just going to try and come up with good segues from video to video.

In the last edition of Video Correspondent, I took a deeper look into the trade that sent the Wizards #1 draft pick from 2001, Kwame Brown to Los Angeles. While he isn't a defensive force in the NBA, he had his moments in high school. Note his nasty block from the McDonald's All-American Game:

Kwame is just one of the many Wizards both past and present who cut their teeth on the national stage in the McDonald's All-American Game.  In fact, 4 of the 10 highest scorers in the game's history at some point in their careers played for the Wizards, those four are: Jerry Stackhouse, DeShawn Stevenson, Chris Webber, and Michael Jordan.  Watch here as the last man from that list gives another former All-American, Vince Carter, the best seat in the house to watch his mastery:

Jordan's current job is Managing Member of Basketball Operations for the Charlotte Bobcats.  My current job is working for a radio station, so I can relate to what Dave Johnson does.  Dave works as the radio announcer for Wizards games and here he gives Wizards Magazine a look into his game day routine.
