Bottom line: Ronnnie Fields is one of the great "what if" stories in basketball history.
A high school teammate of NBA legend Kevin Garnett, Fields was the only three-time Parade All-American and reportedly had a 50-inch vertical.
Fields always played above the rim, and his legendary dunk over future Illinois star Sergio McClain (literally, he jumped over him) is still whispered about in Chicago hoops circles.
