The dream--to wear the purple and gold of the Lakers--isn't unique among boys who grow up in Southern California. But Steve Trumbo put it in writing at an early age. In a letter to the team penned in early elementary school scrawl, Trumbo promised that he would someday make people forget "Mr. Clutch," "Wilt the Stilt" and "the Big O." Oh, yeah, and he'd sign autographs for anyone who asked. But unlike most schoolboys, Trumbo got several shots at his dream.

Sometime, somewhere, a powerful center will emerge on an Orange County high school basketball court and develop a following of fans, scouts and media that is seldom seen. Coaches will marvel at his talents and scoring efficiency, and the inevitable question will be asked: "How does he compare to Cherokee Parks?" It's something that will be asked for years, whenever high school basketball fans gather for holiday tournaments or postseason play.

Aaron Aguilera is different, there's no doubt about it. This is a kid who kept the price tags on his basketball shoes. Why? He told his teammates at El Modena High School that it looked cool. This is a kid who drank a glass filled with three raw eggs. Why? To get elected junior class president. And this is a kid who fidgeted and squirmed while talking to a reporter. Why? "I hate interviews," Aguilera said.

For Santa Ana High School senior Chris Smith, it was the natural thing to do. Smith rebounded Tom Peet's missed free throw with six seconds remaining in the game and the Saints tied with Orange, 48-48. He called time with three seconds to go, figuring it would give Santa Ana a chance to design a play for a final shot. What he didn't figure was that the Saints were out of timeouts.

Chapman women's basketball Coach Mary Hegarty witnessed a breakthrough Saturday. Chapman defeated La Verne, 84-70, and moved above .500 this far into the season for the first time since 1989-90. But it isn't only the fact that the Panthers won their third consecutive game to improve to 4-3 that has Hegarty smiling--it's the way they won it. Before Saturday, Chapman hadn't won by more than eight points. "It's not like we will press a team if we are up by 30," Hegarty said.

The Lakers might still be talking three-peat if the Milwaukee Bucks had kept Dirk Nowitzki after taking the sharpshooting German phenom in the 1998 NBA draft.… Instead the Bucks traded the No. 9 pick to the Dallas Mavericks in a draft-day deal that brought them No. 6 pick Robert "Tractor" Traylor , found dead Wednesday in Puerto Rico.… Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle this week called Nowitzki a "top 10 player in NBA history....

Tom Lewis was the scoring sensation and Rich Branning was a point guard extraordinaire. LeRon Ellis was the graceful center, and Wayne Carlander was a powerful blue-collar forward. Matt Beeuwsaert was the ultimate team player, and Mark Wulfemeyer was a legend. For the past 20 years, some of the Southern Section's most talented basketball players have gained fame, notoriety and scholarships to some of the nation's top major colleges while playing for Orange County high schools.

At a time when too many coaches seem to emphasize winning above all else in high school sports, it is refreshing to hear Bill Ervin, El Modena basketball coach, describe the philosophy that has kept him in the business for 25 years. Ervin, 49, who will retire after this, his 18th season as the Vanguards' coach, has never felt pressured to win or to produce championship teams. Veins don't pop out of his forehead when he's coaching. He doesn't suffer from stress. His blood pressure is normal.

When Audie Norris, a former Portland Trail Blazer, left the Italian league to play in Spain in 1987, everyone told him he had made a foolish mistake. Spanish basketball was bush. Coaches, players, sportswriters warned him, "You are just going to fade away in Spain." But the 30-year-old, 6-foot-9 American from Mississippi has hardly faded away. His team, Barcelona, the Spanish champions, now ranks with the tops in Europe.
