NBA Hair Awesomeness; Dwayne Schintzius

OK: I found a topic that I'm really fired up to write about during the lockout. And that is the best of NBA Hair. I know that this is already covered around the internets and Free Darko's Undisputed Guide to Professional Basketball History had an awesome hair chapter. But it is fun nonetheless.

Today's NBA Hair Awesomeness is, Dwayne Schintzius:




The 7-foot-1 Schintzius played for the Gators from 1987-90, starting all 110 games he played in, averaging 14.8 points. In 1989, he was an Associated Press and Sporting News All-American and earned first-team All-SEC honors when he led the Gators in scoring (18) and rebounding (9.7). He is the only player in SEC history with more than 1,000 points, 800 rebounds, 250 assists and 250 blocks. He holds the UF record for blocks.

He was a member of Florida’s first SEC championship team (1988-89), and was a first-round draft choice of the San Antonio Spurs with the 24th overall pick. He played for six teams in his eight-year NBA career.
