Why AO never made it, I always thought he played better than skip....from that and 1 crap to actually balling for real he just seemed like the better player.What happened to this guy anyway ???

Didn't AO try out for a team? (I think the supersonics) and the guy said in his 20 years he's never seen someone not go to college, take the tryout andmake the team. I believe it was on ESPN Streetball series and they showed him working out for it

Skill =/= IQ

Same reason why Felipe Lopez went from number 1 high school prospect in the nation to 3 and out in the NBA.

Didn't AO get a try-out with the Sonics back in '02 or '03 when AND1 had their television show on ESPN?

Yea he did, AO is nice and i always said he should have atleast made it to the league. I dont know why he doesnt atleast try and play for the D-League and makeit up from there. Best way if you cant make it straight to the NBA from the start.

Alimoe = black widow.

a lot of cats on the street are better than dudes playing in the league right now... it's not always about talent, it's about knowing what options youshould pursue and taking advantage of your opportunities.

Yea I mean we all know that but you can't deny some of the other dudes had potential. A lot of the dudes went to colleges just none as highprofile as Fresno.

I also always wondered this. I think out of all the people in and 1 AO had the highest basketball IQ definately best court vision. And was bigger than skipI rhink perhaps he waited to long to purue the NBA to the point where it was to late. I know he played in NBDL for a while but havent heard anything since

That's because 50 can't do !$*# but dunk.

Any of the OG Members, and others like Baby Shack, Bad Santa, and maybe even bum $*% Hot Sauce would wreck his $*%.

I take that back, Hot sauce wouldn't win.

Alimoe a.k.a Ali Baba a.k.a The Black Widow is a gad dam animal

most of these dudes thought they were livin the life, tourin and gettin celeb status for a hot minute

I can blame them though. Most of these dudes are bums and why not earn money with what you're good at, thing is that, it obviously was temporary.

also, I don't get all the hate that Skip gets. Other than some personal issues, he's a decent PG in the L.

Yo I never knew Hot Sauce and Skip were the same age. But now that I look at it I don't think AO could compete in the NBA I don't think his work ethicor that he even takes the game serious enough to make it. Looking at old footage he was more into having fun so I'm starting to think he just wasn't ascompetitive as Skip or as driven to make it. Alimoe is the only one that had a chance to make it but dude came into the And 1 scene mad late so I could imaginehe to wasn't all that driven to try and make it to the league.
