2024 Scarborough Shooting Stars Team Preview

Welcome back to part nine of my ten part series previewing every single team for the 2024 CEBL season. This is a daily series where I will choose to preview one of the 10 teams in the league, which will lead up to my complete overview and predictions piece! These articles will go over who is on each of the rosters, followed by some main headlines to lookout for, and ending off with a little sneak peak at my prediction for that teams finish.


In the ninth edition of this series, we will be taking a look at the squad with probably the best odds in the CEBL to win the title, the Scarborough Shooting Stars. The reigning champs have reloaded and are trying to go back to back in 2024. They certainly have the roster to do so.

Reigning Champions

Your 2023 winners are back, and better than ever for real. Bringing back the most key pieces from their title run (Barber, Young, and Walker) while also adding with Rowe and Gray should put them over the top. There is no doubt to me that this is the team to beat in 2024, and I’m not sure what will have the chance to stop them.


Player To Watch: Kadre Gray

There’s a couple players for this segment that I could cover, but I’ve gone with Gray because of the potential he has to completely elevate this roster to another level. Gray is a do it all guard that quite literally can score from all three levels, distribute the ball at a top rate and run offences supremely. He’s a good defender too, so don’t sleep on him on that side of the ball. 2023’s Canadian Player of The Year is ready to take over the league with a new squad and I think he’s going to do just that.


Cream Of The Crop

This is my best team in the entire CEBL of 2024. Their guard talent is second to none of all the other 9 teams, and they have just enough front court help to put them over the top. I will be curious how this team meshes right away with many of these players needing the ball in their hands to make plays and how they distribute minutes. But they should just be able to matchup with anyone, while also rolling out fresh goodtalent off the bench consistently. Their season begins on the road in Winnipeg, which will be an immediate test to see if they are the best.
