Coleman developed a cataract in his left eye after being hit by a rock when he was 7. "I was having a slingshot fight and I was reloading, and all of a sudden it was like, whop!" Coleman said. "I was crying and guys were coming up to me saying, 'Man, your eye is out. It's turning blue.'

One of the first things you have to do when you move to Southern California is explain to everybody back East that there is no university out here called Southern Cal. And then, as soon as you finish explaining that almost nobody on this coast confuses "USC" with the University of South Carolina, the next thing you have to do is explain why one of the nation's most famous universities vanishes into thin air during college basketball season. USC hasn't been to the NCAA tournament since 1985.
