- Olden Polynice

Polynice was last in the NBA in February 2004, when the Clippers waived the then-39 year old before the playoff deadline so that he could catch on with another NBA team. He didn't. But Polynice did squeeze out bit parts of two more years in the world of professional basketball, playing 18 games in 2004/05 with the Michigan Mayhem of the CBA, and briefly being the player/coach for the Los Angeles Aftershock of the ABA in 2005/06. That was finally the end....or at least, it probably should be, because Polynice is now 45 years old.

Polynice was the head coach of the Long Beach Breakers in the ABA for the 2007-08 season. Like all ABA teams, they were short lived. Polynice then volunteered as a coach at Jeremy Tyler's high school team for the 2008-09 season, where he compared Tyler to a more athletic Hakeem Olajuwon. He now lives in Los Angeles and runs his Olden Polynice Hoops foundation. Polynice's most newsworthy moment in retirement was his appearance on Dr. Phil, where he was emotionally re-united with his father, whom had been stuck in the Haitian earthquake.
