Roger Powell, Jr. waived by Seattle
The Reverand Roger Powell, Jr. was waived by the Seattle Supersonics
yesterday. With the end of his basketball career looming, he will be remembered as one of the nicer players to wear the Illinois uniform and a key part of the most successful team in the history of Fighting Illini Basketball. This blogger will never forget Powell's second half performance in Illinois' win over Louisville in the Final Four.
Unlike many college basketball players who don't make it in the NBA, somehow you just know that Powell is going to do well no matter what he does. Perhaps he will go into the ministry full-time? Whatever it is, I'd like to say 'good luck, Roger. We'll be praying for you.'
