Mark Madsen: Stanford
Stanford guys naturally get a lot of hate just because they go to school at Stanford. But, Madsen was different. He wasn’t naturally gifted like many around him, but he worked hard in practice and he played hard on the court.
That grit and determination can sometimes rub people the wrong way. His teammate with the Lakers, Shaquille O’Neal once said of Madsen, “He used to beat me up in practice.” That gives you an idea of the way “Mad Dog” would work.
