Ok the very best of all of them go into the NBa.

some late bloomers or second options go to europe and become stars them and earn their living there, some of them even manage to come back to the league, Anthony parker, Charlie Bell....Pj Brown, John Starks.

Some of them try to make a name in Nbdl on in inferior leagues worldwide like Korea, Astralia, Venezuela etc.

But what happens with all of the rest of them?

Since they went to college, they have a college degree, and they go on to lead a normal life. Some undoubtedly are still involved in basketball, maybe HS coaches and the like. But they do have a college degree, and probably went to school on scholarship, so they're doing just fine.

Kevin Pittsnoggle ballooned to 300 pounds, moved into a trailer and became a teacher. I'm sure that's what happens to a lot of those guys.

You make it sound harsher than it is. He's also married with kids if I'm not mistaken, and he's from West Virginia, so he's hardly the norm.

A lot of them get jobs across Europe and Australia playing basketball again. It doesn't mean that if someone can't find a role in the NBA he isn't suited to play basketball anywhere. Prime example: Trajan Langdon. The guy was a college star, never could find a steady role on the NBA and came to Europe where he became one of the best SGs in the continent the last few years earning himself two Euroleague titles as well.
