Slim Charles: I’ll still be in the NBA

A former basketball player and a coach at a Division III college, Charles played for the Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors before his playing career came to a screeching halt.

He later spent five years with the Sacramento Kings, where he spent the bulk of his NBA career.

He returned to the NBA in 2006, where his time with the Lakers lasted only three seasons.

Charles now coaches youth basketball in the Los Angeles area.
