But worry not for the NBA’s greatest 6-foot-5 post player.
According to a story on deadspin.com, the famously-frugal Dantley is doing it just to get out of his ($1.1 million) house, and so he doesn’t have to pay for health insurance. Washington, D.C., has some of the most generous benefits in the country for part-time workers.
UMass Lowell may be the top seed in the Northeast bracket of the NCAA Hockey Tourney, which starts today, but the River Hawks can’t match their opponent’s resume.
No. 4 seed Wisconsin own six Division 1 hockey national titles, and has advanced to the “Frozen Four” 12 times. UMass Lowell has never been to the Frozen Four and all three national titles (1979, 1981-82) were in Division 2.
ULowell hadn’t won a Hockey East title until this winter, so this year already has been ground-breaking for the squad.
