NBA Star Returns Home For Camp

He has scored more than 11,000 points in the NBA, and played with or against some of the greatest players to ever play the game.  Yet one of the best questions Longview native David Wesley faced today was why hasn't your house been on MTV's Cribs?  Well, maybe that was just one of the funnier questions he faced while talking with a group of about 90 kids at his camp in Longview. He says he doesn't mind answering questions like that, and even has fun with it, because he knows he was once just like them

"When they see me on tv," said Wesley, "and some of them talk about NBA Live and all of those kind of things, it's good to come back and put a voice and a face with the person they see on video games and nba games and just kind of relate to them like I was right here. Right here in Longview, right here at Longview High School, same parks, same recs, that kind of the stuff."

And no, Wesley says his house hasn't been on MTV's Cribs because it's in North Carolina and he's never there.

    On a hot, humid East Texas Monday, Jake Arledge sat and visited with Angelina Baseball Coach Jeff Livin. After the morning talk the two would leave the AC cooled office and venture into the heat to look for an apartment. Five years ago, Arledge would have never thought his life would bring him to Lufkin.
