Tribute to the King of flops – Underrated Vlade Divac

Published on December 30th, 2012 by David Astramskas | 3,059 views



Magic Johnson’s favorite Serbian import and Yakov Smirnoff lookalike may be known to many as the king of flops or the guy the Hornets got for A rookie Kobe Bryant, but he was also a very underrated center for the Lakers, Hornets and Queens.  A triple double threat that is 1 of only 6 players in NBA history with 13k points, 9k rebounds, 3k assists and 1,500 blocks joining Kareem, Duncan, KG, Hakeem and Shaq.

More impressive than his on the court achievements is his humanitarian work over the past decade which almost makes up for this 1992 picture of Vlade in a speedo.

MJ even wanted to be like this guy for a day and Shaq dedicated a song to him after winning a championship.

Check out his block on Kobe Bryant
