Arrow Interesting Facts about Players

If there are any interesting facts about players you want to post and talk about you can in this thread...

Lebron James

He has one son, LeBron James Jr., born on October 6, 2004, to Savannah, James' high school sweetheart.

During his senior year, Lebron was the #2 ranked football prospect out of the state of Ohio behind Maurice Clarett as a wide receiver.

Lebron is NOT Ohio's leading scorer in High School basketball

Steve Francis

Francis's mother died when he was a teenager, and he has a tattoo on his arm in her memory. Every time Steve is about to shoot a free throw, he will always touch the tattoo and then shoot the free throw, a ritual honoring his mother.

Started one game during his high school career, as he played just his sophomore season

Stands as an owner in the “We R One” clothing line

Earl Boykins

Can bench press 315 pounds.

Boykins is married and has one son named Earl, Jr.

When he played for Golden State, the Arena would play the song "It's a Small World" from the speakers upon his entering the game.

Boykins was second in the NCAA in scoring average his senior year at Eastern Michigan (25.7 points per game)

His ability to score off the bench along with his low-to-the-floor stature gained him the moniker "the Double-Digit Midget".

Caron Butler

James Caron Butler is his real name

He was arrested 15 times before the age of 15

Donated $26,000 to purchase and give away 300 bicycles to underprivileged youths in Racine in May, 2005

Has two daughters, Mia Caron and Camary and a son, Caron Jr
