Credit the New York Daily News for doing a "where are they now" feature. The latest one takes a look at former Nets lottery pick Ed O'Bannon. We remember Ed and brother Charles from UCLA's run to the NCAA title back in the mid-nineties. Ed, the better of the two brothers (think the Griffin brothers today but less talented) was supposed to be a savior for the Nets that were wallowing in their "really sucky era." Ed didn't quite meet expectations, was traded a season later and then did the whole "Europe thing." I don't think this is Ed's fault: too many expectations were put on him coming out of college just like every other Nets draft pick in the 90s. Derek Coleman and Kenny Anderson didn't really live up to what they should have been.
Anyway, fast-forward to today and Ed is posting up outside of Las Vegas, Nevada in the lovely town of Henderson hawking cars at Findlay Toyota. Remember, as Coach Wooden said, "Failing to prepare is preparing to fail" especially when you need to move those 08 Tacomas off this lot like yesterday. So come on down to Findlay Toyota today!
