   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 64

- Erick Strickland

Strickland last played in the 2004-05 season with the Milwaukee Bucks, where he averaged 4.9 points and 1.9 assists per game. He signed with the Dallas Mavericks for training camp in 2005, but did not make the team, and that was the end of his playing career.

Later, Strickland co-founded a company called "Luxury Boys Toys," which was designed to essentially be eBay for rich people. Luxury Boys Toys no longer exists - presumably, rich people determined that eBay would suffice - and in retirement, Strickland has returned to his former team, the Mavericks. Mark Cuban loved Strickland as a player and has found him work beyond his playing career; Strickland briefly did some announcing for the Mavericks, works as an analyst for Fox Sports SW, and works with the team as a community ambassador and business manager. He has also trained as a minster, and is looking to get into the oil trading industry.
