FINAL FOUR MATCHUPS: VOTE NOW!

QUARTERFINAL MATCHUPS:

(1) MICHAEL PORTER JR. VS. (3) ISAIAH THOMAS

Dickau's Details:

Porter Jr. (Nathan Hale, 2017)
"Only played one year in the state at Nathan Hale but was absolutely dominant in leading them to an undefeated season. A skilled and versatile wing who can do it all. Currently in the NBA with the Denver Nuggets."

Thomas (Curtis, 2006*)
"One of the best scorers ever in the state despite his size. Strong, skilled, and shifty with the bounce - combined with his competitiveness has allowed him to have success at Curtis HS (left after his junior year for South Kent School in Conn.), UW and a lengthy NBA career."

RESULTS:

Note: Isaiah Thomas won the total vote across SB Live, Twitter and Instagram 336-291.

(1) BRANDON ROY VS. (3) NATE ROBINSON

Dickau's Details:

Roy, Garfield (2002)
“Although he never won ‘Mr. Basketball’ he put together a great high school career at Garfield. His career took off at UW where he became an All-American leading to be the 6th pick in the NBA Draft. He became an All-Star for the Blazers but knee injuries cut his career short.”

Robinson, Rainier Beach (2002)
“Maybe the greatest athlete ever in any sport from the state. Originally went to UW for football but ended up being a key “cog in the wheel” in Washington’s NCAA Tourney runs. Has played nearly 10 seasons in the NBA as an undersized guard who never backs down from any challenge.”
