"But before Harris played basketball at the University of Wisconsin or for the Dallas Mavericks, he wowed fans, coaches and even opposing players at Wauwatosa East.... And before Tony Smith was recognized as a coach and high school basketball commentator, he and his full head of curls starred at the same high school before playing at Marquette and for six NBA teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers."
