Scott Burrell was the 20th pick in the 1993 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets. Burrell also had the distinction of being drafted by two MLB teams First the Seattle Mariners while in high school and then the Toronto Blue Jays after his freshman year of college.
Burrell was a recent feature on the Scoop B Radio Podcast. The podcast, a time capsule from 1999, features Burrell discussing life after the Chicago Bulls with me.
Burrell ultimately ended up sticking with hoops and he’s probably happy that he did. He played collegiately at UCONN and in 1998 he’d team up with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman and ultimately won an NBA Championship with the Chicago Bulls.
Currently the head men’s basketball coach at division two Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven Connecticut, Burrell’s team is 12-4, with an 8-1 record in their conference.
