What put it there?
Basketball player Nazr (pronounced NAH-zee) Mohammed, who was born in Chicago to Ghanaian parents.
The 6′ 10″ center attended the University of Kentucky for three years during late ’90s, helping the Kentucky Wildcats win the NCAA Championship in March of 1998. (Several weeks before the championship game, he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated.)
Nazr decided to forgo his senior year in order to enter the 1998 NBA draft. He ended up playing for eight different teams over the course of his 18-season professional career.
