Harold Miner, whose dreams have been coming true in fits and starts, lived a large one, dunking his way into the company of the greats. Missing the draft lottery, on Miami's bench for two months, only recently risen to the Heat's No. 3 guard, Miner won the NBA's slam-dunk competition Saturday and promised to return for many more. "I enjoy dunking the basketball," Miner said. "I don't try to hide that. I enjoy dunking. Growing up, I mean, that's what I did.

When you're the No. 1 high school basketball team in the nation, it's easy to draw a crowd.

It's easy to identify the four freshmen on the varsity boys' basketball team at Bellflower St. John Bosco. As they enter the gymnasium for a road game, two are carrying water jugs, one the water bottles and another holds the coach's clipboard. Three of the freshmen are starters, but all rank near the bottom of the totem pole, even below the managers, when it comes to dishing out the least-favorite assignments. "They're baby Braves," Coach Randy Held said. All four are 15 years old.

All Shannon Brown could do was stand there and listen to Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw talk about his former teammates who have been slam-dunk champions. Brown, a Lakers reserve guard, hasn't been invited to participate in the 2010 All-Star game slam-dunk contest in Dallas -- yet. But the more the acrobatic, high-flying Brown throws down the electric dunks that have made him a YouTube sensation and a staple of ESPN highlights, the bigger the groundswell grows for him to be included in the contest.

As forecast, this was the year of the swing man in South Bay high school basketball, the season when most of the stars were guard-forward types who played bigger than they looked. This is reflected in the 1987 Times All-South Bay boys team, where none of the 10 players is taller than 6-4 and only one is below 6-2. If the team is smaller than some in the past, the players nonetheless rang up impressive accomplishments.

He was known as "The Panther" when he prowled the backcourt at Inglewood High School. At Cal State Long Beach, they call sophomore Bobby Sears "Shorty." Quick, cat-like, the 6-foot-2 guard has had an impact off the bench again this season for the resurgent 49er basketball program. His playing time per game (14 minutes) and points per game (3.6) are down a bit from a year ago, when he was named to the all-Big West Freshmen Team and was selected Prime Ticket Player of the Game for a 16-point effort in a televised win over USC. Still, Sears, the shortest of all 49er regulars, has played in every game since he came to the school.
