Rick Adelman

Rick Adelman (born June 16, 1946 in Lynwood,
California) is a head basketball coach and former
player in the National Basketball Association. He
currently coaches the Sacramento Kings; previously
in his career he has served as head coach of the
Golden State Warriors and the Portland Trail

Adelman began his basketball career as a
collegiate star at Loyola Marymount University.
In the 1968 NBA Draft, he was selected by the
Houston Rockets|San Diego Rockets (now the Houston
Rockets) in the 7th round. He played two seasons
in San Diego before being taken by the expansion
Trail Blazers in the 1970 expansion draft; he then
played three seasons in Portland. He also played
for the Chicago Bulls, Utah Jazz|New Orleans (now
Utah) Jazz, and the Sacramento Kings|Kansas
City/Omaha (now Sacramento) Kings. He retired
from playing basketball in 1975.

From 1977 through 1983, Adelman coached at
Chemeteka Community College in Salem, Oregon,
after which he was hired by the Portland Trail
Blazers (then coached by Jack Ramsay) as an
assistant. When Ramsay was fired and replaced
with Mike Schuler in 1986, Adelman was retained;
when Schuler was in turn fired during the 1989
season (when poor team chemistry resulted in the
team having a losing record), Adelman was promoted
to interim coach. After leading the team into the
playoffs that year (despite a 39-43 record),
Adelman was given the coaching position on a
full-time basis in the 1989 off-season.

The next three years were quite successful for
Adelman and the Trail Blazers; the team went to
the NBA Finals in 1990 and 1992 (losing to the
Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls in the
finals); and went to the Western Conference finals
(losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in 1991.
Adelman spent two more years with the team, but
was dismissed after the 1993-1994 season.

In 1995, Adelman was hired as the head coach of
the Golden State Warriors. He was unable to
duplicate his success in Portland, and was fired
after only two years with the team.

After a year's absence from the sidelines; Adelman
was hired by the Sacramento Kings in 1998, a
position he still holds. Under Adelman's
guidance, the Kings have been one of the more
successful Western Conference teams in recent
years, with several trips to the conference
finals. The Kings have yet to advance to the NBA
finals during Adelman's tenure, however.

In 2005, Adelman's name was mentioned as a
possibility to replace Maurice Cheeks in Portland
(where he still has family connections and still
maintains a home). However, management of the
Kings reportedly a request from the Trail Blazers
to interview Adelman.

Adelman is widely regarded around the league as a
"player's coach", and is considered one of the
more capable coaches in the NBA. However, he is
sometimes criticized for being too hands-off; some
NBA observers have suggested that Adelman's teams
are not as fundamentally sound as their opponents.
Adelman's defenders counter that his teams have
often over-achieved--advancing deep into the
playoffs without the benefit of a superstar such
as a Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neal.

Adelman has a long association with Kings' general
manager (and former ex-Trail Blazer) Geoff Petrie.
Adelman's contract with the Kings expires at the
end of the 2005-2006 season.

Luol Deng

Luol Deng (born April 16, 1985 in Wow, Sudan|Wow,
Sudan) is a professional basketball player in the
National Basketball Association|NBA. In 2003, Deng
was widely considered to be the second most
promising player among U.S. high school seniors,
after only LeBron James. He attended Blair Academy
in New Jersey, along with Charlie Villanueva,
another NBA draftee. Deng opted to play one
season of college basketball for Duke University,
after which he was chosen seventh overall in the
2004 NBA Draft. The pick was made by the Phoenix
Suns, but Deng was immediately traded to the
Chicago Bulls as part of a previous arrangement.
In Chicago, he wears number 9 and plays the
shooting guard and small forward positions. Deng
suffered a season-ending wrist injury late in his
rookie season but still made the NBA All-Rookie
First Team. Considered a prototypical small
forward, Deng's physical attributes and
understanding of the game promise him a bright

Deng was born in Sudan, and has since lived in
Egypt, the United Kingdom|UK, as well as the
United States.


Deng's older brother was taught to play basketball
by NBA legend Manute Bol. Bol, also a native of
Sudan, has been a mentor to Deng throughout his
professional career.

Deng reportedly grew an inch (to 6'9") between his
first and second seasons in the NBA.

Alex English

Alex English (born January 5 1954 in Columbia,
South Carolina) is a former University of South
Carolina and Denver Nuggets basketball player. He
was a top scorer in the NBA throughout the decade
of the 1980s, averaging 21.5 points and 5.5
rebounds per game. He was named to seven NBA
All-Star teams, his #2 jersey was retired by the
Nuggets, and he was elected to the Basketball Hall
of Fame.

English spent the vast majority of his career with
the Nuggets, but also played briefly with the
Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and Dallas

English's style has been described as smooth and
elegant. While he did not possess the physical
strength of his contemporaries Dominique Wilkins
and James Worthy, he relied more on his technique
and his finesse. These skills allowed him to place
11th on the NBA all-time scoring list, as of July
2005. Besides, he has the distinction of being the
basketball player having scored the most points in
the 80's.

In June 2004, English was hired to become the
director of player development, as well as one of
the assistant coach (sport)|coaches for the
Toronto Raptors.

Patrick Ewing

Patrick Aloysius Ewing (born August 5, 1962) is a
former National Basketball Association|NBA player.
He played most of his career with the New York
Knicks as their starting center

Ewing was born in Kingston, Jamaica; when he was
12 years old, he came to the United States with
his family, who settled in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, where he attended Cambridge Rindge
and Latin. He played college basketball for
Georgetown University, where he led the Hoyas to
the National Collegiate Athletic Association|NCAA
championship game in 1982, 1984, and 1985, winning
in 1984. By the time he arrived at Georgetown, he
had become a naturalized U.S. citizen, making him
eligible for membership on the U.S. Olympic
Games|Olympic team in 1984; he won a gold medal
with that team.

In 1985 he was selected first overall in the NBA
Draft by the New York Knicks|Knicks. Although
injuries marred his first year in the league, he
was named NBA Rookie of the Year Award|NBA Rookie
of the Year by averaging 20 points, 9 rebounds and
2 blocks per game. Very soon, he became one of
the premier center (basketball)|centers of the
league. Ewing was an eleven time National
Basketball Association All-Star Game|NBA All-Star,
was named to the All-NBA First Team once, to the
All-NBA Second Team six times and to the NBA
All-Defensive Second Team three times. He was a
member of the original Dream Team at the 1992
Olympic Games|Olympics, winning a second gold
medal. In 1996, he was also given the honor of
being named one the 50 Greatest Players in NBA

In spite of all his honors, Ewing never managed to
lead the New York Knicks|Knicks to a NBA
championship, although he was a key contributor to
the Knicks' run to the Eastern Conference
championship in 1994 (the Knicks returned to the
NBA Finals in 1999, but Ewing missed the latter
part of their playoff run due to a hamstring
injury). This incident of the New York Knicks
making it to the NBA Finals despite Patrick Ewing
being injured is the prime evidence for a theory
called the "Ewing Theory". In 2000, he finally
left the New York Knicks|Knicks, being traded to
the Seattle Supersonics. After a year with the
Seattle Supersonics|Supersonics and another with
the Orlando Magic, he finally announced his
retirement on September 18, 2002.

On February 28, 2003 Patrick Ewing's jersey with
number 33 was retired in a large ceremony at
Madison Square Garden. Although he failed to win a
NBA championship, he remains one of the best
center (basketball)|centers to ever play and
perhaps the greatest player in Knicks history.
Patrick Ewing continues his career as an assistant
coach with the Houston Rockets.

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett (born May 19, 1976 in Mauldin, South
Carolina), often simply known as KG, is a
professional basketball player in the NBA. He is
also known by the nickname The Big Ticket. After
graduating from Farragut Academy in Chicago, he
was drafted in 1995, the first player in 20 years
to join the league straight from high school.
Because of his freakish athleticism and 7-foot
stature, he is widely considered to be one of the
most unique and revolutionary basketball players
ever to play the game. Garnett can play all five
positions on the floor, though he has made his
mark playing the power forward position.

Garnett started slow, but ended up leading the
Minnesota Timberwolves in blocks in his rookie
season. He has since become not only the best
player on the Timberwolves, but also one of the
best players in the NBA. Garnett was selected to
play in every All-Star game after his second
season, winning All-Star MVP in 2003.

Garnett was a candidate for league MVP in 2002 and
2003, finishing second in the voting to Tim Duncan
in 2003. He was named league MVP in 2004 after
posting 24.3 points per game and leading the NBA
in rebounds per game at 13.9.

Garnett and the Timberwolves have had difficulty
in the playoffs, however, losing seven consecutive
first round series. This streak ended in 2004, as
the Timberwolves achieved the best record in the
Western Conference and defeated the Denver Nuggets
and Sacramento Kings in the playoffs before losing
to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western
Conference Finals. In the process, Garnett
silenced numerous critics when he became only the
5th player in history to record 30+ points and 20+
rebounds in a 7th game. He registered 32 points
and 21 rebounds in the Game 7 victory over
Sacramento. Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell
played key roles alongside Garnett in the
Timberwolves\' 2004 success. However, they failed
to match this performance in 2005, leading to the
Timberwolves\' shocking failure to make the
playoffs that year.

Kevin married long time girlfriend Brandi Padilla
in the summer of 2004. The two had a private
ceremony in California. The wedding was the reason
he did not take part in the Olympic games. Brandi
is sisters with the wife of Jimmy Jam Harris who
is one of Kevin\'s close friends.
