When selected in the 1989 draft, NBA scouts listed '"pure shooter" and "ability to run the floor" as Glen Rice's strengths. They forgot to add one strength of his: Ability to (allegedly) bone the future governor of Alaska:
In “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” Joe McGinniss’ soon-to-be-published book for former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate, one tidbit, passed along by the National Enquirer, concerns former NBA player Glen Rice.
Palin, according to the book, had a fling thing with Rice in 1987, while he was in college and she was a sports reporter fresh out of college and working at KTUU in Alaska. Rice was a junior at the University of Michigan at the time and their one-night stand occurred while he and the Wolverines were playing in the Great Alaska Shootout. Less than a year afterward, Palin, hockey mom and former basketball player, married her husband Todd.
Fuck yes! Way to go, Sarah. Before he became a three time All-Star, young Glen Rice was a total catch—nice, Party Gator—and there is nothing wrong with him laying some Alaskan pipeline with a perky sports reporter.
