Just because it has an NBA team in the story doesn't really make it interesting enough for a thread about it.

^^Maybe the Puerto Ricans will remember him b/c from what it sound like he was a b-ball star on the island.

But like I said I'm 33 & I was watchin hoop back then I was like 12 or 13 & I don't remember him.

The fact that you had to search him should tell you that no one is going to remember him. I'm sure that link you provided hasn't been sitting in your 'Favorites'.

He is known more for his basketball years in Europe and he is the best basketball player from Puerto Rico in history.

You got that right. He's known for being involved in a drug enterprise now.

You're not an NBA star if you only play 64 games and nobody knows who the **** you are.

Puerto Rican ex-NBA star Piculin

He is Puerto Rican, but the title of the article says ex-NBA star.

Wow shocking, I never knew he would actually do this! Man hopefully they let him get parole! Such a shame, he was a talent going the right way.
