Remember Keith Van Horn? The rookie from Utah?
The 2nd pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, Van Horn averaged 16 points and 6.8 rebounds over 575 career games and nine seasons. He retired in 2006 at the age of 30 after playing a reserve role with the Western Conference champion Mavericks.
He left the league on his own terms. He says that being a good father was more important. “I needed to provide stability for them and be there for them,” Van Horn told me by phone. “I couldn’t do that playing in the NBA.”
Keith Van Horn was this week’s feature on the Scoop B Radio podcast. Check out his interview on Scoop B Radio below.
Since his retirement, Van Horn has been keeping himself busy in the hoops realm. As founder and executive director of the Colorado Premier Basketball Club, the former starting forward for the 2002 Eastern Conference champion Nets has been utilizing his experiences to coach and mentor kids in the greater Denver area.
