LeBron James becomes only two time : recipient of USA Today HS player of the year. He has swept all the major awards this year, joining Kenny Anderson, Alonzo Mourning, Chris Webber and Al Harrington as only players to win Naismith, USA Today, Gatorade and Parade awards in same year. Arizona has 2 of the other first-teamers coming in as recruits.

Interesting interviews on that link, espeically comparing Luol's and LeBron's answers. The interviewer ask questions about both LeBron's Hummer and throwback jerseys, you would think he wouldn't want to talk about those so much. I suppose, it doesn't matter now though.

Why do you wear No. 32? Luol Deng: "Because of Grant Hill, and ironically I won't wear it at Duke because it's been retired." Minor point: Hill was 33 and Deng wears 33. Laettner was 32. Typo I guess. Why do you wear No. 42? Brian Butch: "It's the number worn by Vin Baker when he was a star for the Milwaukee Bucks. I liked his game and tried to do the same things." Uh oh.
