We saw Kemba Walker play in a AAU game as a high school senior in the legendary Gauchos gym in the Bronx, and he was fantastic even back then—lightning quick with some range on his jumper and the guts to go to the rack on guys seven inches taller than him. But who would have thought the 6-1 Walker would go on to lead the nation in scoring and carry a modestly talented UConn team to the national championship earlier this year? And yet he did. Now, the Rice High School product is off to the NBA. He was drafted ninth overall by the Charlotte Bobcats. Go, Kemba!
