Most people had never heard of Rod Benson when he was playing his high school and college ball. Many still don’t know him. And, who can blame them? After all, he never played a minute in the NBA, bounced around minor league teams, and crossed the Atlantic to try to continue his career. Probably known best for his writing career—he blogs and contributed to SLAM—it’s worth getting to know this guy. — Adam Fleischer
