Born in Baltimore, Maryland
Attended University of San Francisco
Drafted in the first round of the 1982 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls

Why he might be annoying
He pleaded guilty to assault after a student nurse accused him of attempted rape (February, 1982).
He admitted to receiving thousands of dollars from a USF alumnus for a 'no-show' summer job, prompting the school to shut down the basketball program (1982).
He was hospitalized for cocaine use (1985) and twice was caught violating the NBA's drug policy.
During a game against the Spurs, he sent a ball boy to the concession stand to buy a slice of pizza which he ate while still on the bench (March 20, 1985).
Not too surprisingly, when he reported to the Clippers the next year, he was 25 pounds overweight and was suspended until he got back in shape.
He named his son Quintin and his daughter Quinci.
Why he might not be annoying
When he was 14, his parents died within a month of each other.
He set a Maryland state scoring record while at Cardinal Gibbons high school (1977-79); at the time of his death, he was still the state's #3 all-time scorer.
After his basketball career ended, he worked as a supervisor at a community center for at-risk youth.
Michael Jordan said, 'He was a good guy to be around. He taught me a lot, the tricks of basketball.'
