Dreaming of stardom

George Lawson had his son dribbling figure-eights at the age of 5. He would get on his knees to play Ty one-on-one on the preschool-sized basket he and his wife, Jacqueline, set up in their house at Andrews Air Force Base. By the time Ty had reached elementary school in Clinton, Md., Lawson paced him through "commando" dribbling drills, ordering full-speed crossovers and other moves with the bark of a father's command.
