Former Gators: where are they now?

Anthony Roberson finally made it! After leaving early for the NBA and landing with a resounding thud on the roster of the D-League's Arkansas RimRockers (try to get the visual of Roberson crushing eleven other guys out of your head now... bet you can't), the shoot first, pass never point guard signed a two-year deal with the New York Knicks, where ESPN.com is speculating he may replace shoot first, pass never point guard Stephon Marbury. Good for Roberson!

Matt LaPorta, he of the tremendous bat and somewhat questionable fielding prowess, is currently in the process of making it! LaPorta was recently the centerpiece of the Brewers' trade for Cy Young candidate C.C. Sabathia, and now will headline the U.S. Olympic baseball team. Good for LaPorta!

Finally, Teddy DuPay, scrappy ex-Gator point guard and one of the catalysts of UF's ascent to the elite levels of college basketball, has also made it... unfortunately, he (allegedly) made it with a woman who did not wish to be a part of the making process. Good for... well, actually good for nobody. DuPay has (allegedly) been a screwup since he left the Gators in the midst of gambling charges, and his (alleged) continued decline has (allegedly) really sucked to watch. Here's hoping he gets things together soon.
