Boston’s prep basketball reputation is not as storied as other cities’. Players such as Trail Blazers guard Shabazz Napier, another Roxbury native, and Wayne Selden carry fierce pride in their hometown. Selden not only wants to pump at that tradition but reach out and help kids in his community. “Coming from Roxbury, I always wanted to play here and get on this floor,” he said. “I’ve been here for plenty of games, been here for the high school championships, so I always wanted to come here and play on this floor. I feel like I’m an example, me and Shabazz are examples of being able to achieve and being able to make it out and get to this level . . . motivation for kids coming up in Roxbury, kids coming up in the neighborhood. I feel like we’re a good motivation to see that somebody has done it and somebody can do it and they can do it. That’s a big thing because we were at the Tobin [Community Center] just like them.”
