5. Corey Brewer (Portland, Tennessee)
Brewer was born and raised in Portland, TN. He was named the TSSAA Class 2A “Mr. Basketball” and was drafted seventh overall in the 2007 NBA Draft. His NBA career stat line is 8.7 ppg, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. Not bad for a kid out of middle Tennessee.
Oh yeah, his nickname is “The Drunken Dribbler”. Not sure if that has something to do with that good ole’ Tennessee moonshine or not, but it is funny as hell.
