Former Memphis star Joey Dorsey breaks a backboard in Europe
Does the name Richard Elmer Dorsey mean anything to you?
That’s Joey Dorsey’s full name, and you all remember Joey Dorsey, right? The 6-foot-7, physical freak played the role of Derrick Rose’s center as Memphis
made the 2008 national title game didn’t field a team in 2007-2008, according to NCAA records.
Dorsey has bounced around professional leagues for a while, playing a total of 61 games for Toronto, Houston and Sacramento at the NBA level while also spending some time in the D-League. In 2011, Dorsey made his way overseas, starting out in Spain before joining eventual Euroleague champs Olympiacos. He was named 2012 Defender of the Year and earned a two-year contract with the club.
Hopefully, when Olympiacos signed him, they saved some space in their budget for shattered backboards:
Nicely done, Joey.
But I still don’t believe you’re better than Greg Oden.
