What Isaiah Todd means to Juwan Howard

Rasheed Wesley remembers a timeout.

His team, Nightrydas Elite, was in Dallas, losing to Mean Streets in a game pivotal for Peach Jam qualification. In the huddle, one voice stepped above the rest.

“We’re not gonna lose this game,” Wesley recalled Isaiah Todd saying. And they didn’t.

It wasn’t the first time Wesley saw Todd step up as a leader and it wouldn’t be the last. Since the first time he saw Todd play live, as a freshman for an opposing high school, Wesley knew there was something special there. 

“I was like, that kid’s gonna be good, as a freshman,” Wesley said. “And then to see him and actually know — coach him — the kid’s a pro.”
