Dwight Howard dunked on a 12 foot rim in the contest, not 13 (top of the backboard height). He has also said that he can't touch the top of the backboard. see here - http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoop/post/_/id/4307/james-white-vs-a-jumping...
David West grew up in NJ. I think he had family in NC, which is why he went to garner.
The carolinas is really coming up. I don't know much about sc, but nc is really coming up.
Not bench guys or sparingly played ones, real impact players.
That isn't too shabby.
o ok my mistake and yea we are on a come up. another college player from nc that did pretty good this past year was darius johnson odom. he plays for marquette. went to wakefield high school and he from raleigh just like wall.
I created my first thread that went to two pages............verrryy nice *borat voice*
David west is from nc
Check out this roster
Pg) Kirk Hinrich
Sg) Ricky Davis
Sf) Kyle Korver-soon to be Harry Barnes
Pf) Nick Collison
C) Patrick o' Bryant
Bench-Ryan Bowen, Raef Lafrentz, Matt Bullard, Dick Gibbs( can't think of a back-up guard)
While we are not a deep crew, we work together and try real hard, giving us the ability to defeat powerhouses like New Hampshire and Wyoming.
David West grew up in Teaneck, but he went to high school in North Carolina. I saw a special about David West and Teaneck during the playoffs a couple of years back. He was talking about how it was one of the last towns in the United States to desegregate (happened during the late 60's).
