July 23: Happy Birthday Darvin Ham

On a daily basis, Fatpickled recognizes the birthdays of the men who have played, and currently play for, my favorite teams. The Redskins, Orioles, Wizards, and Terps.

Happy birthday Darvin Ham. Darvin played 1 season with the Washington Bullets in the 1997-98 season. He didn’t do much on the court, averaging just 2.0 pts and 1.8 rebounds per game. Darvin played 8 seasons in the NBA and won a championship with Detroit. He’s also played overseas and is still plugging away in the NBA’s D League. The real reason for this post is an excuse to post the highlight of his tremendous dunk in the 1997 NCAA Tournament. While playing for Texas Tech (a surprise sweet 16 team that year) Darvin shattered the backboard with a tremendous dunk that landed him on the cover of SI. Happy 36th Mr. Ham!

Cheers and Hail
