First off, half of those guys aren't even from LA, they're from California, Jeremy Lin being prime example. He is closer to San Francisco than he is to LA.

Second off, Ray Allen? Really?

He attended high school in Dalzell, South Carolina, where he led Hillcrest High School to a basketball state championship.[5]

You're about 2000 miles off.

Lakers get the better half of the players and Clippers get the rest we don't want.

I highly doubt if you asked him his hometown, I doubt he'd say L.A.

Nowitzki would play in S.Oliver Baskets, probably.

Garnett is from South Carolina. I only got to see him play when he was a senior at Farragut. Love him, but not sure we can claim him as a Chicagoan though.

Isn't Jeremy Lin from Palo Alto? He was born in LA but not sure if he counts as an LA guy.

(edit: just read a post above addressing the same thing as ^^)

Tyson Chandler is not from L.A. or Compton...he's from Fresno area originally (Central Cali) then San Bernadino. When Nike bought him he went to play basketball for Dominguez High in Compton.
