If you dont know about Len Bias, either ask your father or google him. Ill give you the brief synopsis: the Celtics drafted him with #2 overall pick in 1986 draft. The next day, he signed an endorsement deal with Reebok for 5 years and $1.6M (which was a lot at the time). Then the next day, he died of a cocaine overdose.
This guy had the world by the balls and threw it all away. He was supposed to be the next big thing...and he was ours. He was also the same age at Michael Jordan (well, he was a few months younger). It makes me sick to think about what could have been. It really does.
RIP, Len Bias.
