Starting Five: Arron Afflalo


3. What was your best sports moment before the NBA? And what has been your best sports moment in the NBA?

ARRON: ``Winning the high school state championship felt really good, making the McDonald’s All-Star Game felt good and getting to the Final Four (with UCLA) the second time around felt good. That would be my top three before the NBA.

``As for the NBA, I hit a game-winner TNT against the Dallas Mavericks my fourth year in the NBA with Denver. ‘Melo (Anthony) ended up fouling out of the game, so I took the game-winner and made it. But for me, the top moment is just the overall growth in my game from the rookie game to where I am now moving forward. For me, my pride in the NBA is my body of work that I have put out there.’’
