Where Are They Now? Your Favorite NBA Stars of the '90s

Kevin Johnson

Career: 1987-2000
'90s Team(s): Phoenix Suns (1990-98)

Since retirement Johnson has proved he's no one trick pony. Johnson recieved a B.A. in Political Science from Cal-Berkeley after his playing days and put it to use. In 2007, allegations of sexual harassment were made against Johnson by a student at St. HOPE (a charter school Johnson founded). The student recanted her story and despite calls to release the police report (probably politically motivated) the Sacramento County Sheriff refused to reopen the case. A few months later Johnson was elected Sacramento's Mayor by a 57-41 margin.

During his first term, he launched initiatives for: community service, local art, ending homelessness, better schools, green energy, literacy, and reducing gang violence. In 2011, Johnson married Michelle Rhee a former Chancellor of the D.C. School System. In 2012, Johnson was re-elected as Sacramento's Mayor by 35% over his next closest challenger. In 2014, he's expected to serve as President for the United States Conference of Mayors (which is exactly what it sounds like). Sounds like his career could just be getting started.
