If Raef Lafrentz was born two decades later, he might’ve been one of the hottest commodities in the NBA. The 6’11 forward could shoot it from anywhere on the good side of the court, and could swat shots; he was a two-time All-American at the University of Kansas. But the NBA wasn’t ready for his game, even though he did play 12 years in the league.
These days, Raef spends time tending to his farm in his native Iowa, which spans as much as 10 acres. Lafrentz was also recently accepted into the Iowa Sports Hall of Fame.
