Lloyd “Swee’ Pea” Daniels' unlikely rise to the NBA is the stuff of legends. An icon on the playground basketball courts of New York City, Daniels life turn a wrong turn before he even saw a game on a college court—busted for buying crack and latter shot three times in the chest during a drug deal gone bad.
