Man this is really sad. I looked him up a couple years ago when he was in the ABA out here in Long Beach and I thought there was still a chance

Thats unfortunate.... instead of working on his game and improving, he went with the quick fame and money.... bad decision

I mean iverson got drafted with the 1st pick with a complicated backgrownd.

No, thats about it. He received no workouts from teams, same thing happened to Jereme Richmond in the 2011 NBA Draft where he was a top recruit out of HS, projected to be drafted in the early-mid 2nd Round but he didn't workout for any teams and went undrafted.

Lenny was a top HS player but there were a lot of questions on playing inferior competition. If the D-League was a minor league tool back then some team would've took him in the 2nd Round and sent him to the D-League to see how he played and if it would mature him.

Its not like he didn't get a NBA chance

This is rare video of him playing for the Boston Celtics in Summer League:
