Despite being drafted 6th overall by the Phoenix Suns in 1986, William Bedford never really lived up to his potential and his NBA career lasted only 7 seasons. The 7-footer eventually turned to running drugs to make a living. He somehow managed to avoid jail time for smuggling 25 pounds of marijuana in 2001, but after getting caught again in 2003, he was sentenced to 10 years and let out in parole in 2011.
