I love this story (from the back): "There's intense and there's Eric Owens-intense. Back at Ferrum College, rarely visited by scouts, Eric was distraught that he couldn't play for some who were about to attend a game. Nursing injuries incurred dunking a basketball, he had both of his wrists in casts. Solution: Owens and his friends hacked the casts off with a jackknife and a butterknife. He played the rest of the year and was drafted in the fourth round. 'I took a lot of Advil,' he said."
