His cousin is Ralph Sampson, so maybe he was hoping for the family genes to kick in when he decided to jump to the pros after a blah year at Cal. He played for five teams in five years, played in various countries, went to the D-League, got invited to Celtics camp, and got waived. Fundamentals are overrated.
