Old friend Vin Baker is still playing professional basketball, I think. According to Marca.com, he's signed with Marinos de Anzoategui of Puerto Rico. I wish I could share more details but I can't read Spanish.
I'm guessing Baker is doing this for money and not for the love of the game. His $2.5 million dollar home was foreclosed on last year.
Another waste of talent, Oliver Miller, is also itching to play basketball again.
"I miss it a lot," Miller said. "But I hate watching. I can’t watch
it. The first thing you hear them talk about is the lack of a big man.
Here I am a big man and I’m unemployed."
Miller, 39, is unemployed because he literally ate his way out of
the game, being rejected by teams from the NBA and even the Harlem
Globetrotters because of his inability to curb his appetite.
Ha! You're big alright, Oliver. In the article, Miller says he once weighed 415 lbs.
These guys really piss me off. They're born with incredible talent, only to piss it away, blaming one thing (alcoholism) or another (food). Just go away, you've tainted the game enough already.
First person who suggests Oliver Miller can help the Celtics gets a lifetime ban from the site.
