Remember Byron Mouton? Starting guard on the 2002 national champion Maryland Terrapins? Essayist and Cadillac owner?
Well, the Washington Post found him playing for the Wilmington Sea Dogs of the ABA. It’s an interesting and somewhat sad read. Mouton’s played all over the world, trying to keep alive the hope that basketball can someday make him rich. Articles like this should be required reading for every Division 1 basketball player.
By the way, this was my favorite part of the story:
Mouton ended up in Wilmington by mistake. When he signed a contract with the Sea Dawgs in late January, he thought the team played out of Wilmington, Del., a 90-minute drive from Mouton’s apartment in Bowie.
