The Apple's Best Ballaz
Sebastian Telfair 5'11 PG Lincoln

Although Sebastian was already considered the best player in his class I guess you could say ABCD was a coming out party for him. Everyone knew he was good but nobody knew he was that good. He never looked like he was outclassed by any player he went up against and that includes, Anthony Roberson, Elijah Ingram, Raymond Felton and Sean Dockery. He showed that his jumpshot is deadly when he is on, and he doesn't need a clean look he can just shake his man and rise over him for the 3.  In the Spring he was looking to score a lot more then pass but ever since the Rumble in the Bronx he has looked like one of the best passers in the nation. His sick handle and great speed make him impossible to guard one on one, which allows him to get to the basket and either score on his own or find the open teammate. His weakness is his defense, which I think if he put his mind to it he could be a great defender. Since he is so quick he should have no trouble keeping defenders in front of him.
2001-02 Season Outlook
He will be the man of the team this year, so he will post big numbers but he won't have John Quintana to fall back on if he doesn't have for a particular game. But if everyone on his team can be eligible Lincoln will have a shot at the PSAL title. Right now Sebastian is my early pick for PSAL player of the year and should make the Daily News 1st team.
