The Sports Hernia Presents: Did you f’ing know …


That Giant Gonzalez was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in the 3rd round of the 1988 NBA Draft?

According to Wikipedia, Gonzalez "couldn't handle the pace of the American game, and had trouble maintaining a proper, athletic weight."  Translation: Under that intimidating and quite believable muscle suit, he was a Spanish speaking Shawn Bradley with a mullet.

What's even more amazing than the thought of Double G wearing an NBA jersey over his shoulder patches is the fact that it wasn't Don Nelson who drafted him.
