To some in Ohio,Estaban Weaver (6'4''-G, college: Ohio Dominican) was LeBron James (6'8''-F-84) before LeBron James. Rated the #1 player in the entire country in his Class as a freshman{25ppg;1st team All State} and as a sophomore{26ppg;All State 1st team} by some analysts,Estaban Weaver has come full circle in the basketball world and looks better than ever! His 33 points per game average leads the IBL and has helped his Marysville Meteors to a 5-0 record. Estaban was an integral piece in the Columbus Cyclones Championship game team averaging 19ppg last season. His success was similar to the 18ppg he averaged while leading Central State to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1969. Weaver also attained Conference POY and All American status during his only collegiate season. Along with Mike Brownlee (6'2''-G-75, college: Charleston) and Charles Warren (6'1''-G, college: Findlay (OH)),this may be the most explosive perimeter in the entire IBL.

This past autumn and winter should be Estaban's last spent in the U.S.,as his game and focus have each reached new levels and scouts are starting to take notice. Weaver hopes to secure a deal by season's end for the following European season later this year. With the continued success of both Estaban Weaver and the Marysville Meteors seemingly imminent,the sky is the limit for this rising player and for the franchise as a whole.

Weaver has been instrumental in the Marysvile Meteors 5-0 season and recently exploded in their last victory over the Grand Rapids Flight{140-122}for 47 points,a league high for the season!
