Former NBA player Dwayne Schintzius has interesting reasons for why he thought he was traded from the San Antonio Spurs to the Sacramento Kings back in 1991. It was because of his hair!
We get more from Tampa Bay Online:
Former University of Florida basketball center Dwayne Schintzius, of Brandon High, was the NBA draft’s 24th overall pick in 1990. He liked the San Antonio Spurs and anticipated a long career there. But Spurs general manager Bob Bass didn’t care for Schintzius’ “lobster” hairstyle.
“He told me to cut it,” Schintzius said. “So I got it cut and sent him the shavings in an envelope. I’m not sure he appreciated that. And then, away I went.”
Clearly if that’s the reason why, it’s hilarious and will make up for Schnitzius being better known for his role in Eddie as Ivan Radovadovitch.
