Video: Blair’s high school basketball playing days

Let's take a stroll down memory lane with San Antonio Spurs' DeJuan Blair to his high school playing days in Pittsburg.

Before he suited up for the Pitt Panthers and the Spurs, he honed his basketball skills for the Schenley Spartans. While with the Spartans, he showed that same hustle, under-the-basket play and rebounding skill which made him the second-round pick for the Spurs in 2009.

Check out this footage of Blair's high school playing days including some nifty passing in the paint and how he was compared to Charles Barkley an Elton Brand before stepping foot on an NBA court. Interesting to note even back then, Blair admitted he needed to work on his outside shot. Something he still works on until today.
