After a solid college career at Cal that earned him a second-team All-American selection, Powe was drafted in the second round of the NBA Draft. He won an NBA title with the Celtics in 2008 and played for the Cavaliers and Grizzlies before finishing his career in Puerto Rico.
These days Powe is a basketball analyst for NESN and a Celtics Ambassador. He earned over $3.5 Million in his NBA career. That was enough for him to found his own company, PoweLific Game, which runs basketball camps all over the country.
