Matt was rather fortunate to play in the NBA, after going undrafted. Sure he played at UNC and even won a National Championship with the Tarheels in 1993 but he only averaged 4 minutes per game and 1.6 ppg throughout his college career. That UNC team was deep and he actually served as the backup for another WTTHT legend.
In fact one of the only pictures I found online of the 7'1 Wenstrom was to the left, in a jump ball with who appears to be none other than...the aforementioned Eric Montross! Did they have some kind of intrasquad game? Why are they wearing their game uniforms and not their practice uniforms? And most importantly look how Montross is skying above Wenstrom. You may remember Eric not being the most athletically gifted of players so the fact he's way higher than Wenstrom puts into perspective Matt's ups (unless the toss was poorly done by the official, which actually has about a 75% chance of being the case).
a google search for Matt Wenstrom and this will likely be the top result. However one thing he's a part of is a website dedicated to the tallest US citizens. Of course looking at this site my first thought was that Dwayne Schintzius better be there. Upon further inspection he's there, along with Montross. (In fact if you look closer there's a lot of classic guys like Jim McIlvane & Keith Closs who would be classic WTHHT if they played for the Celtics in addition to a couple other guys you can probably expect to see articles on lol. Furthermore they need to delete Wilt Chamberlain and Jason Collier since well, they're not alive anymore).
|Did Matt have something against the Milwaukee Bucks?|
Matt Wenstrom used to work for Cotton Company, in the Houston, TX area. He has since stayed at that indusry and was hired as Interstate's Vice President of Sales in 2007. As you can tell from their website, Interstate, which is based in Colorado, is a combination of a restoration, construction, and catastrophic disaster service company.
So there ya have it folks, the most in-depth Matt Wenstrom article on the web. But if this information doesn't suffice feel free to reach out to him on facebook. Unless that happens to be another Matt Wenstrom who is friends with Serge Zwikker :)
