"I never played a game sober, unfortunately," said Clark, who last played for the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns.

Clark said in court that he started drinking in high school and, after he was drafted in the NBA by the Orlando Magic in 1998, he drank at games during halftime.

"It just never stopped," he said.

Sad story, but at the same time, just puts him that much higher on my list of all time favourite Raptors. Only Raptor who used to throw balls down through the net.
