Calvin Roberts is trying to earn a spot in the NBA. Back in January he started to train, lifting weights, living in the gym. Roberts sent letters to eight different teams around league to provoke some interest. Roberts was drafted in the 4th round, 83rd overall by San Antonio in the 1980 NBA Draft. He even played 15 seasons of pro basketball overseas for teams in Spain, Italy, Israel, Turkey, Istanbul, and even won a championship in Austria.
Also, Aretha Franklin is still at it.
