Houston High-Flying All-Decade Top 20 Hoop Teams

VYPE

Originally Appeared on VYPE

It was a solid decade for the Houston basketball community.

The Bayou City won nine state titles -- three by Jack Yates. There were several McDonald's All-Americans and future pros like Danuel House, the Harrison Twins, Carsen Edwards, Daymean Dotson and Joseph Young to name a few.

How about the coaching jobs? Yates' Greg Wise and FB Bush's Ronnie Courtney -- well, held court. Wise stacked titles and Courtney has won titles at Willowridge and Bush. David Green reached state with Hightower before winning a title at North Shore. He's now the captain of the ship at Beaumont United.

It was a basketball Renaissance in H-Town and VYPE had a front-row seat.

On Tuesday night former Astros center fielder George Springer agreed to a 6-year $150 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays according to MLB Network's, Jon Heyman. Now we have reports that Michael Brantley will sign a 3-year deal with the Blue Jays and join Springer in Toronto.

This is a crushing blow for the Astros to lose both Brantley and Springer to Toronto. Former Astros right fielder Josh Reddick is also a free agent that won't be returning to Houston, which puts the Astros in a position where they only have one starter locked-in to play the outfield in 2021, that being Kyle Tucker. Just last year the Astros lost one of the best pitchers in baseball, when Gerrit Cole broke the bank signing a 9-year $324 million contract with the Yankees. Add that to Springer and Brantley leaving for Toronto and you have an Astros team losing three of their best players in short order. In Brantley's two seasons with Houston he hit over .300 with 27 bombs and 112 RBI.
