Cherokee Parks - Inexplicably, Parks - who had not played since December 2003 - came out of retirement last season to sign with French fourth division team, Aubenas. There must be a reason why he travelled across the globe to play semi-professional basketball, but whatever it is, I don't know it. It did, however, definitely happen - here's some tape to prove it. It's only of a missed jumpshot, but, still.

- Cherokee Parks
It was six years and five months ago that Cherokee Parks was last on the roster of a professional basketball team. The Warriors waived him in December 2003, and yet parks, aged only 31, never played again. He now owns a music club in is hometown of Huntingdon Beach called "The Brigg."
Unbelievably, the NBA's Cherokee Parks is not the only man in the world with that name.
