About

Former University of Michigan star and leader of the infamous Fab Five. Selected first overall in the 1993 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, he went on to play in five NBA All-Star games, while leading the Sacramento Kings on a number of deep playoff runs.

Before Fame

After a remarkable career at Detroit Country Day High School, he became the most highly anticipated recruit out of Michigan since Magic Johnson.

Trivia

At the University of Michigan, he was a Consensus first team All-American in 1993 and one of the most dominant forwards the Big Ten had ever seen, but his attempted timeout call in the 1993 NCAA Championship against North Carolina when the team was out of timeouts ended up being his most remembered play.

Family Life

He married Erika Dates in 2009. He also dated model Tyra Banks from 2001 to 2004.

Associated With

His Kings developed a heated rivalry with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers but they were never able to get over the hump and find their way to the NBA Finals.
