From 1 to 35,535: Frolic, Fez or Rid?

Our 13th profilee played an even 30 minutes for the Timberwolves. Weighing in at 245 lbs. and standing just an inch short of seven feet, our man was picked in the middle of the first round by the Warriors in 1994. After a few years there, he split a year between Pamesa Valencia (Spain), the Raptors, MN, and the CBA. That was it, other than a season in 2000 for this team, best known for drafting Lebron James:

Speaking of the 2003 USBL college draft, who went #1? It wasn't Lebron, who lasted until the second round and 18th overall. The answer to this question - as well as the unanagramming (disanagramming?) of "Frolic, Fez or Rid?" - is after the jump.

The Texas Rim Rockers, with the first selection in the 2003 USBL Draft, took Bingo Merriex. And no, I did not make his name up. Here's proof.

As for the identity of the man who lasted just six games with the Wolves in 1997? Clifford Rozier. Until I Googled him, I did not realize what a hard life he has led, coping with schizophrenia and drug addiction. Here is an excellent, in-depth article from two years ago:

I wasn't able to find anything more recent, but I hope for his sake that he has been able to maintain the stability and peace he seemingly had found when the article above was written.
