It was six years and five months ago that Cherokee Parks was last on the roster of a professional basketball team. The Warriors waived him in December 2003, and yet parks, aged only 31, never played again. He now owns a music club in is hometown of Huntingdon Beach called "The Brigg."
Cherokee Parks - Inexplicably, Parks - who had not played since December 2003 - came out of retirement last season to sign with French fourth division team, Aubenas. There must be a reason why he travelled across the globe to play semi-professional basketball, but whatever it is, I don't know it. It did, however, definitely happen - here's some tape to prove it. It's only of a missed jumpshot, but, still.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
