In case you missed it last night, ESPN had another 30 for 30 documentary that premiered titled “Benji.” The episode was about former Simeon High School basketball star Benji Wilson who was rated as the #1 high school player in his class in 1984. Wilson was tragically shot November 20th that year while taking a walk with his girlfriend. Wilson wore #25 and was nicknamed “Magic Johnson with a jumpshot.”
Since then only a select few have been chosen to wear his number. One of those being Derrick Rose who lead Simeon High to consecutive state titles in 06’ and 07’.
