Here’s one example: Guy named Shun Williams from On the Radar Hoops runs one-day event in Atlanta for $325. But he DOES provide meal!!!!

I’d love to know which summer event charged the most money this past summer. Coaches or whoever: Tweet, e-mail or text me with biggest scam.

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

I think I wanna be an AAU event operator in my next life. Could probably buy a yacht, move to San Diego and retire at 40.

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

The worst part is many of the packets don't even include accurate info. Some of these events charging $500 for coaches to get in. Joke.

Jeff Goodman @GoodmanESPN

One low-major D-1 head coach just told me he spent $5,300 on packets to get into AAU tournaments. Just in July!!! Highway Robbery!!!
