Today was 17 years ago he was drafted by the Nets, but I was hopeful the Celtics would get to draft Yinka Dare (Da-ray) in 1994, leading up to the draft.  I even had a "D.A.R.E" t-shirt, sort of hoping it would be a sign of things to come.  Jay Bilas would've ranted about his wingspan and potential.

His NBA career didn't live up to expectations and he was picked after the Celtics selected Eric Montross.

Tragically Yinka died in 2004 in Englewood, NJ from a heart-attack due to an arrhythmia condition.

Hip-hop D'are!
