BOYS BASKETBALL: The top five players by position in the city of Detroit

The high school basketball season is a cool six months away, but AAU, and summer leagues are in full effect. Therefore, it's never too early to discuss who will be some of the top incoming players in the city of Detroit for the 2014-2015 season. To put a little spin on it, players were ranked by position, taking the best five from each group. This should spark up a nice conversation piece.
