The wind gusted. The sky threatened. And UNC basketball star Tyler Hansbrough, who doesn't like flying in the best of weather, dreaded boarding the team flight from Atlanta back home in March. Most players wouldn't have a choice.

North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson's speed makes him the perfect point guard for coach Roy Williams' system. Lawson will make an NBA coach just as happy the day he decides to leave Chapel Hill and turn pro. The sophomore not only has the skills to play in the NBA now, but he is developing into the kind of player who will enjoy a successful career.
