- Zeljko Rebraca
You had probably assumed that, when the Clippers quietly waived Zeljko Rebraca in April 2007, that that was it for him. Struggling with chronic back injuries, Rebraca hadn't played the entire 2006/07 season, and had managed only 29 unspectacular games the season before. But if you did think that, like I did, then you'd've been wrong. Rebraca gave it one more go. He signed with Pamesa Valencia in Spain in the 2007 offseason, just to give himself a chance to go out on his terms. And not long afterwards, in December 2007, he did. Six not-especially-effective-but-reasonable games later, Rebraca announced his retirement, this time at his discretion rather than it being forced upon him. It's a better story this way.
Zeljko Rebraca fact: after leaving the US for Spain, Rebraca stopped making payments on his $2.7 million house in Manhattan Beach and it was foreclosed. The buyer then had to sue a couple who were occupying the house, and who were believed to be doing so illegally. (They weren't.) The male occupier of the house was called Greg Everhard. That's the best surname a man could possibly have.
